Gifts for a 21st birthday often focus on the fact that the birthday boy or girl is now legally old enough to purchase and publicly possess alcoholic beverages. You can stick with the celebratory tone of the occasion when looking for a unique gift, or commemorate the date with a present that's a little more serious in nature.

Beer Googles

A pair of goggles shaped like beer mugs (available at Stupid.com) plays on the joke about how people we usually wouldn't be attracted to become better-looking when we're drunk.


You can purchase a key chain Breathalyzer that will determine the alcohol content of the breath, so the birthday girl will know if she's had too much to drink before she tries to drive.


The International Star Registry lets you register a star in anyone's name. The namesake will receive a certificate listing information such as when the star formed and what constellation it belongs to.

Bottle Cap Tripod

The drinker who loves to take photos can place the miniature tripod atop a bottle and fasten his camera to it so he can take a self portrait or group shots that include him. You can find a bottle cap tripod online at photojojo.com/store.


Collect a picture from each year of the birthday girl's life, reproduce a copy of each one and have them specially mounted in a frame, so she has a display that shows how she has grown up.

Message in a Bottle

Follow the lead of A1Gifts.co.uk and create a message in a bottle. The personalised gift allows you to write a message of wisdom or witticism on a piece of parchment and deliver it in a bottle.
