What makes a great birthday gift?
Tracy Kemp, director of unique and unusual gift company Vintage Playing Cards suggests:
“Buying a gift for someone is special and finding something perfect makes you and whoever you are giving the gift to feel great. Presents should be about showing that you are thinking of that person and your appreciation of them on their birthday.
“Is there something that they have been coveting, or have they have mentioned in passing that they love a particular style or object? Or have they admired something of yours? Even if it is something very small remembering this will create memories for both of you.”
What do you get someone for their 21st birthday?
When people are looking for the right present in 2020, they want something that will last and not go straight to landfill. This means thinking outside the (present) box. Consider making precious memories as a present instead of just buying a product. Book an experience or plan a trip that will create memories that will last a life time.
Some of the best 21st birthday gifts that aren’t experiences are brilliantly functional but look good too. Something that they can use in the exciting years ahead, but that is special enough to mark the important milestone of turning 21.
