21st Birthday Gift Ideas for Girlfriends


A young woman's 21st birthday marks an important milestone in her evolution as a person. Much like a 16th birthday does, a 21st birthday helps to signify another step in the process of becoming an adult. Whether you are a significant other looking for the perfect gift idea for your beloved, or you want to find a gift you best friend would love, there are several types of gifts that you should consider.

Engraved/Custom-Made Jewelry

  • A great gift idea for a girlfriend is jewelry. You can have a gold or silver bracelet engraved with a special message, or you can have a piece of jewelry made based on your specifications. A great idea is to have a jeweler create a custom-made piece of jewelry based on a design you give them. Or even create a piece of jewelry yourself. For example, a create a necklace that has 21 small, round wood pieces with a number carved on it leading to the number 21.

Clothing Gifts

  • A nice scarf or a designer shawl can be nice gift idea for a girlfriend. For a special reference to her "21st birthday," add 21 beads or other decorative elements to the clothing gift you select. Another idea is to create a design in a graphics program with a text message that tells your girlfriend what she means to you. You can also use a photo or photos (like with a collage) as your graphic for a T-shirt, tote bag or other product made available by an online company (CafePress, Zazzle).

A Vintage Wine

  • Since the 21st birthday usually signifies the legal age to drink, a nice idea for a special birthday you have planned is to purchase a nice bottle of wine to go with a home-cooked dinner or, alternately, out at her favorite restaurant. If you don't know that much about wine, a wine guide can help you make the perfect choice for your meal. At a restaurant, ask a waiter what a good choice is with the meal that you've ordered.
