Frame a cute childhood photo in a signature keepsake frame that friends and loved ones can add personal messages to at the birthday bash. 

It's a great idea to place it at the entrance so guests can sign as they arrive - these types of frames usually come with a black felt tip pen. What a fun way to remember a milestone birthday for years to come.

Craft beer hamper 

Craft beer connoisseurs will think all their hoppy wishes have come at once. Team a carefully curated beer hamper with a 21st keepsake like a personalised bottle opener or a classy set of personalised leatherette coasters.


One for the adrenaline seekers! Jumping out of a plane is a 21st birthday experience they won't forget any time soon. 

Make sure your gift includes a copy of the video too. They'll watch it a hundred times over, and snippets of it will make for an epic Insta birthday reel.

Northern Territory: Uluru - take in the breathtaking landmark from an aerial perspective

Western Australia: The spectacular Kimberley region

New South Wales: Navigate the sprawling Sydney Harbour from the air 

Tasmania: Soar over Cradle Mountain

Something sparky has to make it onto every 21st birthday gift ideas list, right? Earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces and more. 

When choosing jewellery, consider their personal style and take note of the jewellery they already wear. Let that guide your choice. Hand-crafted artisan pieces make a meaningful and unique gift idea that will be treasured for years to come. 

Statement artwork


Art can be an incredibly thoughtful gift, especially for a milestone birthday. 

With a little research, you can find a contemporary, original piece of art that will outshine a run-of-the-mill generic print. Follow art-centric hashtags on Instagram, and if something catches your eye, reach out to the artist directly. 

Celebrate with a bestie spa date

Bestie birthday pampering, here we come. 

Treat your best mate (and yourself!) to a spa date to celebrate the big 21. Massage, manis, facials, saunas - keep the exact details of your spa day activities a secret until you arrive to maximise the surprise.

Tickets to a festival - music, art, comedy

Scope out upcoming festivals they'd love around their birthday date and gift them tickets - bonus points if it falls on the actual day. 

From music and comedy to film and art, you'll be spoilt for choice once you hit up Google search or ticketing sites like Eventbrite. Just make sure it's something you know they'll enjoy. This is the perfect 21st birthday idea for those that love gift experiences. Buy yourself a ticket too and spend quality time together.
