In the United States, the 21st birthday is the milestone that marks adulthood. It is the age when adult entertainment and beverages become legal. The 21st birthday requires special attention and celebration, with gifts to make it memorable. Present the basket at the birthday party or other celebration.

Celebrate a 21st birthday with a gift basket of music. If you don't already know what music the person likes, find out from other family and friends. Buy CDs of groups and singers the birthday recipient prefers, and place them in the basket with concert tickets. If the celebrant is a woman, add flowers, miniature chocolates and a little stuffed animal. For a man, add a key chain, a hat and playing cards with the logo of a favourite sports team. Include a gift card to iTunes or other music-download websites.
Basket of Appreciation
Talk to friends and family before the person's 21st birthday and explain what you have planned. Ask family for addresses of distant friends and relatives so even those far away have the opportunity to be part of this milestone occasion. Ask each to write, in a 21st birthday card, the ways the individual celebrating a 21st birthday has made a difference in their lives, family or world and how much they appreciate having the person in their lives.
Once you receive the cards, buy a basket large enough to fit the group of cards but not so large that it makes the card collection seem small. Line the basket with tissue paper, and fill the basket with cards from family and friends. Add a large bow in the celebrant's favourite colour.
A 21stbirthday is a good time to make changes, leaving childhood behind with a new look. Fill the gift basket with products for hair, skin and body. Include a fitness DVD and a gift card for a gym workout, salon or spa services or a massage. For a man, choose a salon or spa that caters to men.
