While every birthday is special, the 21st generally reigns supreme. It marks the beginning of official adulthood, with newly cemented 21-year-olds gaining the right to drink alcohol. As a result, this birthday is usually celebrated in a big way, with huge bashes, drinking games and wild partying throughout the night. Gifts for 21-year-olds should be commemorative of this momentous event.

21 Shot Glasses

Surprise the birthday girl with 21 girlie shot glasses. Pick up a small basket or a few cellophane bags decorated with "21" or "Happy Birthday!" and fill them with the shot-sized cups. The glasses should be colourful and have entertaining sayings on them that will make the birthday girl smile when she looks at them for years to come. To find these glasses, head to a novelty or party store.

Margarita Maker and Collectible Margarita Glass Set

Give her a gift that she'll be able to use for years to come: a margarita maker and collectable glass set. This is not only an appropriate gift to commemorate this birthday, but she'll also be able to use it for entertaining guests in the future. Rather than pair that maker with traditional clear margarita glasses, opt for a colourful set. Shop around for frilly glasses that have sayings or standout decorations on them. These should be easy to find in party or novelty shops, while the margarita maker can be purchased from a home store.

21 Trinkets

Put a twist on the typical alcohol-themed present and surprise her with 21 trinkets. This gift should consist of 21 of her favourite things, and it doesn't have to break the bank. It can include 21 of her favourite types of cookies, mini-cupcakes, packs of her favourite candy, photos or a variety of objects. If you have a little more room in your budget, give her gift tokens to her favourite store or restaurant in £13 increments.

21st Birthday Survival Kit

The morning after a birthday blowout can be rough. As a result, a 21st birthday survival kit can be useful, according to findgift.com. The kit includes a 21st birthday button, celebratory items and some hangover cures for the next morning. If you're on a tight budget, create your own kit and fill it with cheap shot glasses, headache medicine, party hats and a bottle of water.
