23rd Birthday Present Ideas
Personalise a birthday gift by engraving it. (gift image by Kovac from Fotolia.com)

Let the birthday person's age inspire the gift selection. Some ages are milestones, like 16, 18, 21, 30, 40 and 50 years old. Help a friend celebrate turning 23 as if it is a milestone by the selection of your gift. The object is not to make your friend feel older but special.


Give jewellery, engraved with a personal greeting, acknowledging the age of the recipient. This might be a watch, bracelet, necklace or charm. If the gift is for a woman who wears a traditional charm bracelet or an Italian charm bracelet, look for a 23rd birthday charm to add to her bracelet.


Give literature to the birthday person by selecting a book whose title is in theme with the birthday. This might be "Walk in the Light and Twenty-Three Tales" by Leo Tolstoy, "Psalm Twenty-Three by" Tim Ladwig, "Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses" by Claire Dederer, "Twenty-Three Minutes to Eternity" by James L. Noles Jr., "Chosen: How Christ Sent Twenty-Three Surprised Converts to Replant His Vineyard" by Donna Steichen, "Twenty-Three Sermons upon the Chief End of Man" by Gilbert Tennent or "Twenty-three: Webster's Timeline History" by Icon Group International.


If the gift is for a close friend or sibling, put together a photo scrapbook, and title the cover "Your First 23 Years." If you want a printed album cover, you can create a customised three-ring binder at from an online printer by uploading your digital artwork or customising artwork of an existing album at the site.


Make a funky "turning 23" tie for the guy or gal to wear on the big day. There are online vendors, such as Zazzle.com and Design Your Tie, that allow you to e-mail or upload artwork to their sites, enabling you to create custom ties. Make a tie covered with 23s, all in different fonts and colours.


Give a personalised gift that notes the 23rd birthday. A number of online print-on-demand vendors, such as Zazzleor Cafe Press, allow consumers to create a number of personalised gift items, such coffee mugs, T-shirts, tote bags, shoes, mouse pads, kitchen magnets and more. Another option is to purchase a sterling silver or glass gift and have it personally engraved. Write something simple like "turning 23" or be creative and come up with a silly phrase that rhymes with the birthday person's name, while mentioning the age of 23.


Turn a book into a customised 23rd birthday present by adding a personal inscription to the recipient inside the book's cover. Select a book that inspires or relates to the birthday person's current position in life.
