My parents gave me money and a handle of Captain Morgans (my favorite liquor) when I turned 21. 🙂

A drink? Haha, maybe a bottle of champagne?

A handle is a half gallon.  It’s called a handle because half gallon bottles of liquor have handles.

What about a bar tender book?  A nice set of shot glasses, martini glasses, beer steins/pints (depending on what she likes)? A kitchen bar set/martini shaker thing?

If she is in Toronto, she has been legally to drink for a couple years now 🙂 I’m sorry I don’t have any awesome suggestions though! Maybe tickets to see her favorite band live, or a spa gift certificate for her and a friend?

I was given jewellery for my 21st from my parents. Unfortunately it didn’t last 🙁 But I like sentimental gifts like that especially for a 21st (which is a big deal in Aust, usually the biggest party a person has apart from their wedding).

I always get “good jewelry” for big birthdays and events. I inherited my grandmother’s bracelet when I got married. I got a pearl set when I turned 18. Diamond earrings for my 21. My sister got a diamond pendant for her 21. We both inherited rings for our 16. My family likes the idea of something lasting. Something we can give our own daughters later.

I was going to suggest jewellery too… that was the main thing I got from family on my 21st. Something classic that she can keep forever.

I don’t remember what I got from my family but I know my roomate got a Tiffany’s necklace that she had been wanting from her parents and she still wears it a lot so I like the special jewelry idea.

This fall is my sister’s 21st and my 30th so we’re taking a trip somewhere(haven’t worked out the details yet)  What about surprising her with a weekend away just the 2 of you, especially if she’s on the other side of another country!  What about a weekend in NYC?

I agree with the Tiffany’s.. what girl doesn’t want the blue bag for their b-day?  Also, I got a massage gift certificate for my birthday and it was the best gift ever!  Something like that, that I don’t spend money on myself frequently for, that’s what I would want.
