Your sister's 21st is a milestone birthday in her life. She can legally drink alcohol and has finally entered true adulthood, with all the responsibilities it entails. Whether you've been a pest of a little brother or an overprotective big brother, choose a gift that represents your special brother-sister bond and celebrates the big 2-1.

Drinking Games

Put an adult twist on the games you and your sister played as kids with board or card games such as Brew-Opoly or Battle Drinks. Or teach her new games with a book or list of the 100 most popular drinking games.

Gift Basket

Assemble a 21-themed gift basket. Give 21 different small gifts or gifts that relate to turning 21 years old. Make a hangover kit with pain relievers, Bloody Mary ingredients and snacks. Give inspirational books on growing up and making future decisions or cocktail recipes and wine appreciation books.

Drinking Glasses

Pour her drink into something with style. Give a set of personalised shot glasses, elegant stemware or a flask in her favourite colour, embellished with jewels or her monogram. Quench her thirst with a personalised wine or champagne bottle.

Twenty-One Years

Commemorate your sister's 21st birthday with a birth-year gift from a speciality gift store. Buy a DVD of major events from the year she was born or a book highlighting the trends and major events of the last 21 years. Research and compile a list of the most popular songs and movies for each of the birthdays she's had so far.

Gag Gift

Make her laugh with a gag gift. Give your sister a beer helmet to wear at her 21st birthday party, personalised toilet paper to wipe away the puke after the party or a "decision maker" dart game or dice to help guide her through those really important adult situations.


Honour the new adult with a beautiful piece of "grown-up" jewellery. Pick out real or faux diamond stud or pearl earrings or any charm with her birthstone. Inscribe a watch, bracelet or locket with a birthday message for your sister.
