How to choose the best 21st birthday gift
21st birthdays are guaranteed to be so much fun. To help the birthday girl or boy on their way to a memorable night, you should try to make this day extra special by using these tips to buy a gift thoughtfully.
- Questions to ask yourself. To start on your birthday present buying adventures, you’ll need to ask yourself what you know about the recipient. What are their interests? Think about what you two enjoy doing together, the memories you’ve shared and the embarrassing moments, too. You know, the dirt. A 21st birthday party is nothing if it doesn’t celebrate the highs and lows, the talents and the (lovable) faults of the one celebrating their birthday.
- Don’t worry about price, worry about thoughtfulness. The best gift is one that reflects your friendship or relationship. Even an inexpensive gift can go a long way if it has some thought or sentimental value attached to it. Also, think about the kind of person they are. They might prefer something a little more decadent or they might be the kind of person who doesn’t like physical gifts, but prefers experiences. This could mean the difference between buying them an expensive candle or buying them a scuba diving adventure.
- Save money by going in on a group gift. If you’re on a budget, the best way to get a gift that’s worthy of a 21st birthday is by buying a group gift. Ask mutual friends who are attending the party if they’d like to chip in to buy something and see how many people you can get involved. In theory, the more people who opt in, the bigger and better the present you’ll be able to buy. If you’re not that close with the birthday boy or girl, this is a great way to skip the gifting decisions altogether as you can ask the person in the group who knows them best to choose the gift.
- Whatever you decide. Remember, even if the invite says “no presents required”, it’s a nice gesture to bring something, even if it’s small. The best gifts are the thoughtful ones, so spare some time to consider your friend and your friendship before you start shopping.
