21st Birthday Wishes

When you need to choose 21st birthday wishes, try to keep in mind that turning 21 is a milestone — so your birthday message should be milestone worthy. Fortunately, that's the only type I have on this page.

What makes a birthday greeting milestone worthy? For a 21-year-old birthday girl or boy, this means that you need to pick 21st birthday messages that bring a sense of pride, inspiration, confidence, comfort and joy to him or her. "Drinking" jokes won't cut it.

At the age of 21, it's quite hard to navigate the world of young adulthood. A sense of pride, inspiration, confidence, comfort and joy could make all the difference. Accordingly, choose a birthday greeting that can do it all. 

Message Guy Tip #68:
How to pick 21st birthday wishes 

When someone turns 21, they legally become an adult in many countries, with the legal right, for example, to buy and drink alcohol, gamble, vote, even rent a car.

At 21, many boys and girls also have the money and desire to indulge in these activities. This can make hitting 21 a mixed blessing for them, especially if they indulge a little too much.

This mixed blessing, though, is what makes this milestone terrific fodder for a funny or serious birthday message. Which route should you take? It depends... Read more ►

If the birthday boy or girl can take a joke, select a birthday wish that pokes fun at them (about, say, picking up the bar tab or losing constantly at the casino tables). But pick messages with a light-hearted approach — nobody likes mean-spirited insults cloaked in jokes (in other words, the old "truth in jest" route). That's just offensive — and you don't want to be offensive. You want to be funny.

If the recipient of your birthday greeting is the serious type, the "birthday message" playing field opens up quite a bit. You can choose birthday wishes that are clever, cool, inspirational or sentimental in tone. You could simply encourage the birthday boy or girl to grow up (if you think he or she lacks the maturity of a typical 21 year old). You could also pick a greeting with the opposite slant: a message that congratulates him or her about their mature, responsible attitude. You can even opt for a birthday wish that welcomes the birthday boy or girl to young adulthood.

Whether you go the funny or serious route, be sure to choose a positive birthday message that you would like (or would have liked) to hear at 21.

41 Good 21st Birthday Sayings for Cards

best 21st birthday wishes

Let’s be honest: 21st birthdays are all about the booze. In the United States, 21 is the age at which you can legally drink alcohol, and by extension, get into bars, clubs, and other places where liquor is served. Not only is this a coveted privilege for young people, but it represents the last significant marker on the path to adulthood.

That said, a good 21st birthday wish doesn’t have to mention alcohol. Not everyone is interested in drinking, and for one reason or another, it’s not always appropriate to joke about boozing it up. For some wording ideas – both alcoholic and non – check out the following list of ways to wish someone a Happy 21st Birthday.


Here are some humorous 21st birthday wishes that are perfect for such a fun and uproarious occasion. As you can probably guess, many of these messages include references to alcohol.

  • If you wanna nail your 21st birthday, you gotta get hammered.
  • You’re 21! Now you can legally do everything you’ve been doing all along!
  • On your 21st birthday, I’m cutting you off at 2… pieces of birthday cake!
  • Hope you enjoy this milestone. The next birthday you will look forward to is when you qualify for Medicare.
  • Happy Beerthday!
  • Drinking won’t automatically make your 21st birthday awesome… but it’s worth a shot.
  • Congratulations on being legal to drink. Condolences on having all your younger friends call you up to buy for them.
  • Happy 21st Birthday! Don’t take offense if I still call you “kid.” It just goes to show how old I am!
  • Happy Birthday! Guess you won’t be needing that fake ID anymore!
  • The good news about turning 21 is that you can legally drink. The bad news is, legal drinking isn’t as much fun.

For more boozy humor, see this list of alcohol puns.
