21st Birthday Present Ideas for a Boyfriend

Every birthday provides an opportunity for celebration. For a young man, no birthday creates cause for celebration more than the rite-of-passage birthday--21. If your boyfriend's 21st birthday is on the horizon, give him gifts that will make his day--or the morning after--memorable. Armed with a world of choices and intimate knowledge of what your guy likes, you will find the gift that rings true just for him.


A guy's 21st birthday might entail some legal drinking. If you think your boyfriend might need a little help the morning after, give him a hangover basket. Include a bottle of Bloody Mary mix (omit the vodka), a bottle of Tabasco sauce and a few sticks of fresh celery. Include a tin of aspirin or acetaminophen, a black sleep mask and a CD of ocean sounds or sounds of nature. Stop by his house, if you're not already there, and make him a light snack of toast and jelly with tea or coffee, if he can handle it. Your TLC will help restore him to normal.

Living near water provides an opportunity for a romantic rite-of-passage 21st birthday for your boyfriend. Load the boot of your car with a picnic basket filled with midnight munchies, such as french bread; soft cheese (Brie); sparkling cider (because you're driving); and a beach blanket. Drive him to a lake or the beach, but don't tell him where you're going or what you have planned. Lie on your blanket beneath the stars as you listen to the sounds of the water. At midnight open your picnic basket and toast his birthday.

If your boyfriend likes music or wrestling or drag racing (to name only three possibilities), give him two tickets to his favourite type of event. Find a show that will be nearby on a date close to his birthday. Surprise him on the night of the event with a limousine and dinner before the show. Tell him you're either beginning his birthday celebration early or carrying forward, because you don't want his pleasure to end.
