Are gift vouchers a good 21st birthday gift?
Struggling to decide on the right 21st birthday gift? Give a gift voucher! Just remember, not all gift vouchers are created equally. A voucher for a mall or shop is really just a fancy way to dress up cash, and there’s no real thought or personal sentiment behind it.
But giving an Adrenaline gift voucher is giving someone the opportunity to treat themselves to an extraordinary experience they might not otherwise have done. It’s a relief from the consumerist drive to buy material things and pushes them instead to do something exciting and purely savour the fun of it. So whether you’re buying them an Adrenaline gift voucher for a specific experience or a gift card for a dollar amount to spend on an Adrenaline experience of their choice, you’re choosing a thoughtful gift for their 21st birthday.
Plus, our Adrenaline gift vouchers give the ultimate flexibility. Each is valid for five years, and can actually be used towards any of our thousands of experiences. So even if you give an Adrenaline skydiving voucher as a 21st gift, they can still change their mind and decide to do a different experience available on the site instead.
The dollar amount of any Adrenaline voucher can be used on any experience before it’s locked in with the experience provider, so you can feel good about the safety net of flexibility around your gift. Whatever happens, they’ll end up doing something they are really excited about.
You can choose a specific experience or decide how much you want to put on their Adrenaline gift voucher. It’s the perfect 21st gift for any budget, because we have experiences available for practically any price range.
Also, with instant delivery by email and Afterpay available, they're the perfect last minute 21st birthday present. It’s an amazing 21st gift you can buy online instantly and easily.
The 21st birthday they've always dreamed about starts here.
