Let’s not kid each other. We know what this one’s all about. But before you go and buy them a bottle of cheap liquor or a case of Natural Light, consider that they can now legally experience the thrill of doing that themselves. Let’s try to be a little more creative here. We’ve compiled a list of the best gifts to help them celebrate the last birthday they’ll ever look forward to.

Motorized Cooler
Motorized Cooler

We can’t emphasize this enough: you ride the motorized cooler full of drinks to the party, you drink its contents, and then you WALK it back home. Nobody wants to be the guy on the news who got arrested for drunk driving an empty cooler. So stay safe.

Go hit some clubs in another city, state, or even country. Book the tickets, make reservations, plan the itinerary, rent the car, and put everything into an envelope for them to open on their special day. Watch their eyes light up as they realize what you just handed them. That moment will be as much fun as the trip.

Sir Galahad Bartender
Sir Galahad Bartender

This bar service holds 4 bottles, glasses, and includes a foldout tray. It also appears to be a full size suit of armor, the kind you might see chasing Shaggy through a haunted castle. It’s a fun way to display a liquor collection, and may be useful during hand-to-hand combat.

Stockpile Stock Gift Cards
Stock Gift Cards

Twenty-one is old enough to drown the sorrow of losing it all in the stock market with a bottle of cheap booze. Get them started on the path to rock bottom, not by buying them the bottle, but by giving them their first shares of stock, and thereby setting them off down the path of inevitable financial ruin that comes from gambling hard earned money on stocks.

21 year old booze
21 Year Old Booze

21 years is old enough to have matured and mellowed out enough to drink easily from the glass, without the harshness or burn of younger liquors. It is also not too old to be too expensive or too precious to drink. Plus, a 21 year old bottle for a 21st birthday gift is ridiculously perfect, don’t you think?

The Coolest
The Coolest

Think of what the coolest cooler would be like. It would keep drinks cold, obviously, but it would also do other stuff too, right? Like play music on a splash-proof Bluetooth speaker, have a built-in blender that can crush ice, and even be able to charge your phone. That’s why this cooler is called the Coolest, and it is just that.

Amazon.com
HTML Beer Glasses
HTML Beer Glasses

When people talk about “beer nerds” they mean those who are really into beer and know a lot about it. But what about “nerdy beer nerds?” A nerdy beer nerd likes beer, knows a lot about it, but is also just generally a nerd. The sort of person who would appreciate a beer glass with an HTML joke printed on it.

Sure, it will be strange when you have to get that cheek swab from them without them knowing what you’re up to, but it will all make sense when you reveal this birthday portrait that showcases their unique DNA.

The Digital Art Museum

Traditional shot glasses are durable and convenient, but you can’t eat them. That’s just a fact. Don’t try it; many people have, and they’re all dead.

Beer Carrying Briefcase gift
Beer Briefcase
