Birthday Gifts for 20 Year Old Men

Updated April 17, 2017

Finding the perfect gift for a 20-year-old man can be overwhelming, even if he is a close friend or a loved one. Whether you want to purchase an expensive gift or get creative and make your own, the more you know about the person receiving the gift, the more personable you can make the gift feel overall. Finding the ideal birthday gift for a 20-year-old man should not be too difficult, as long as you have some idea about who he is.


With technology changing daily, you can always find a good electronic gadget on the market for the man you are shopping for. Whether he needs a portable music or DVD player, or has been eyeing a new CD, you can find an electronic gift to suit his interests. If he is in need of household additions, purchase him an upgraded electronic shaver or a brand-new GPS system for his car. You can also have a custom car-starter or radio installed as a special surprise gift.

Video Games

If the man you're shopping for is into games, you really can't go wrong. Purchase him a new game for the system he primarily plays. If you don't know the video game systems he plays or you're unfamiliar with the type of games he may want, purchase him a gift card for a video game store to show him how much you care. You can also purchase game time cards, which add subscription time to his gaming account, if he already subscribes.

Vacation and Adventure

Plan a weekend getaway vacation to an amusement park or a museum that may interest him. If he loves outdoor adventure, set up a rafting or rock-climbing adventure, or take a trip off-roading on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Purchase tickets to a local sporting event to celebrate his birthday, and top off the day with his favourite meal and dessert. Another option is to buy concert tickets to his favourite artist for an upcoming performance.
