21st birthday gift ideas

by Elisa Parry

Finding a 21st birthday gift can be tough. It’s a milestone moment and you want your gift to reflect just how much you care. Gifting an experience is a great way to ensure they’ll remember their 21st birthday gift forever. It’s a great opportunity to go all out: think skydiving, hot air ballooning or even rally car driving! If they love animals, gift them the chance to dive with sharks or cuddle a koala. Help them tick something off their bucket list as they enter a new chapter of their lives. Looking for gift inspiration? Here are some ideas to get you started.

Rottnest Island glamping tent
Gift them a glamping experience

Glamping is camping without all the fuss of setting up and packing up. Okay, so it’s also quite a bit more luxurious than your average tent. The point is, it’s loads of fun and great content for Instagram so the millennials will love it.

Quad Bike Adventure
Gift them a new set of wheels

Don’t worry, we’re not talking about buying them a new car, just an awesome driving experience. Sign them up for an afternoon of rally car racing where they will be able to unleash their need for speed in a safe environment. They can get behind the wheel or experience how the professionals do it during a hot lap. If they are looking for an “off-the-beaten-track” experience there’s always an off-road quad bike adventure!

Help them tick off the ultimate bucket list item – skydiving! What a story to tell! If you don’t think they’d love the idea of jumping out of a plane, there’s always hot air ballooning. If they’ve always liked the idea of being a pilot, gift them a flying lesson where they can take over the controls of a light aircraft while airborne!
