Name A Star After Them
If you’re looking for a 21st birthday gift that’s completely out of this world and will last a lifetime, this is it. And if they’re not over the moon that they get to possess their own little patch of the night sky, it may be worth reminding them of how young they are compared to their twinkling namesake.
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?
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. This machine breaks the mold by replacing glass with cookies (the best ideas are always stupid obvious). Jello shots are no longer the undisputed champion of the alcohol kingdom.
Mixing cocktails is both an art and a science. This 21st birthday gift idea embraces that fact and throws some random chance in just to keep it interesting. Roll the dice to get a combination of ingredients, then use the included book to get the right ratios to avoid crapping out.
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. Or you could just give them the DNA collection kit as the gift if that’s easier. Or just swab your dog. They’ll never know the difference.
You don’t drink scotch just to get drunk. You drink it to savor the complex, peaty flavors that only come with painstaking attention to detail and patient barrel aging. These toothpicks are infused with that experience. Teach them the joys of proper drinking with this 21st birthday gift.
There are plenty of books full of useful and wholesome tips for life that you could give someone for their 21st birthday. That’s easy to find. And a little boring; let’s be honest. This book is different. It might not come in quite as handy, but it’s a lot more fun.
Sometimes 21 year olds haven’t really developed a refined appreciation for art yet. That’s why so many people that age do things like hang beer ads and rock band posters on their walls. This 21st birthday gift idea allows them explore the world of art and change the display on demand. They might just learn something and it will make their room look much classier than that neon PBR light.
By age 21 a person will hopefully have read enough to have a treasured favorite book. In our digital era, however, books have become more disposable than ever, which is why a lovely first edition copy can be so special. Bonus points if the book is actually good.
