How to choose the best 21st birthday gift
If you're really stuck for the perfect gift, consider these things before you shop:
- Interests: The best place to start when shopping for any gift is to ask yourself what you know about your friend or relative. What do they like to do in their spare time? What are some things that the two of you have enjoyed doing together? When you can start narrowing down exactly what type of gift you're after, you'll find the process a whole lot easier.
- Make it special: Remember that the best birthday gift isn't necessarily the most expensive. Often the best gift should reflect your relationship with that person, Consider a scrapbook of photos of the two of you over the years or an experience voucher for the two of you to create more memories together in the future.
