21st Birthday Gift Ideas for a Boyfriend

Throwing a birthday party for your boyfriend on his 21st birthday offers opportunities ranging from a private romantic celebration to one with a large group of friends. On this milestone birthday, choose a present for him that he usually would not purchase on his own. This could include an item he has mentioned he'd love to buy if he had the money for it. It could also be a trip to someone he has always wanted to go, such as Las Vegas, but never had the opportunity.


Give your boyfriend some of his favourite beer to enjoy. Not just a six pack, or even a case, but beer that will last the entire year. Retailers throughout the country offer "beer of the month clubs." These retailers will send beer, either a six-pack or more, based on the package purchased for your boyfriend. The beer selections are chosen by the retailer from microbreweries around the United States, and for an additional cost you can include beers brewed internationally.

Tickets to a Local Sports Event

Purchase tickets for a game to your boyfriend's favourite professional sports team. Purchase tickets that he might not purchase for himself, such as luxury box seats for a baseball game, or seats in the club level or on the 50 yard line for a football game. If the two of you enjoy the same sport, purchase a pair of tickets for him to enjoy with you, possibly for a game on his birthday. Another option would be to purchase enough tickets for him and a few of his closest friends to go and celebrate his 21st birthday together at a later date at the game.


No, the lingerie is not for your boyfriend to wear. Instead, it is lingerie you purchase to surprise him. When he arrives home, greet him at the door dressed in the lingerie with a ribbon around you that says "Happy Birthday." Another option is to tell him that you will wear any lingerie he wishes as his birthday present, and ask him to go shopping for it with you. You can have fun flirting with him and teasing him while he helps choose his own birthday present at the store.

Weekend Vacation

Surprise him with a weekend away from home. This can be arranged with his friends, or a private romantic weekend for just the two of you. Make reservations at a hotel at one of his favourite vacation locations along with dinner reservations at one of his favourite restaurants near the hotel. If you want to have a large group of friends celebrate with you, let them know where to reserve hotel rooms for the party. Tell your boyfriend that it's just the two of you going to the location for the weekend. Have his friends waiting at the hotel when you arrive as a surprise for him.
