21st birthday gift ideas are somewhat tricky to find. To be 21 is to embrace life at its fullest. This milestone birthday represents her true entrance into adulthood and her glorious twenties. Unlike an 18th birthday, turning 21 marks the beginning of many other milestones – both big and small. From graduating uni to dancing the night away with her friends, travelling the world during her gap year, clinking pint glasses at the local pub and even getting her first real job. Any 21st birthday must be celebrated with a bang.
