The Best Birthday Celebration Ideas For His 22nd Birthday

Now that you have a gift in mind, it is time to decide on how you could celebrate his 22nd birthday with him!

Here are some ideas that you can plan for his birthday, for when you want to spend some time alone together, or if you want to invite a few friends for a good time out.

Beer And Pizza Bar

Pizza and beer go hand in hand, and for his 22nd birthday, a pizza and beer bar is a great idea.

You can set up a station where everyone can make their own pizza, or choose from ready-made pizza, and a selection of beers to enjoy with each slice.

To cut down on costs, you could ask everyone to bring a pack of craft beers to add to the beer bar, which is also a great way to try out some new brews!

Have A Pool Party

A pool party is a classic birthday idea and a great way to spend the day (not to mention day-drink!)

Grab some beers, SPF, and your best friends for a classic day of fun and shenanigans.

Games Night

Game night could be the two of you, or you could include some friends to make it even more competitive.

Set up some screens in the living room and switch on the Xbox or PlayStation and spend the night gaming away.

Make sure to include some snacks and drinks, and even takeout, and set up a comfy sitting space in the lounge where you can all sit back comfortably and game all night.

Live Music

Live music is always festive and makes for an easy night out celebrating his birthday.

You could either go to a large concert or spend the evening at a local bar where local musicians are playing.

Book a table and enjoy some dinner while you are there!


You are never too old for paintball, and there is a good chance he will love a game or two of paintball for his 22nd birthday!

Invite some friends, break up into different teams, and play a few rounds of capture the flag, while trying not to be brought down by the paintballs!

You could set up a barbecue afterward to make it an all-day event, and have some chilled beers waiting for everyone after the game.

Go Camping

If he loves the outdoors, you could spend a night outdoors camping.

Find somewhere relatively close by that you could travel to for a night and spend some time in the great outdoors for his birthday.

Trade-in birthday cake for s’mores, and maybe include a hike into the activities as well.

This is a great activity for the two of you to enjoy together, or for a group of friends too. Make sure you have enough food packed to have a mini-celebration out in the wild!

Beach Day

For summer birthdays, beach days are ideal.

ack snacks and cool drinks to last the day, get down to the beach early, set up towels and umbrellas, and spend the day lounging around on the sand and splashing around in the ocean.

To make the day more fun, bring a volleyball, Frisbee, or other beach-friendly sports, and have some friends join for the day!

Finish it off with some ice creams or milkshakes.

Wine Tasting

To make the celebration a little more sophisticated than what his 21st probably was, you could plan an afternoon of wine tasting.

If there are vineyards close by, try to look for busses or taxis that work the route, so neither of you needs to drive.

You could also look for tours that take all the hassle out of planning for you!

If there are no vineyards close by, you could plan a weekend away in an area where there is wine tasting, and really make the most of the weekend!

Go Golfing (Or Mini-Golfing!)

Golf isn’t just for professionals, and planning a day on the golf course can turn out to be a really fun birthday.

Either play with the two of you, as a four-ball or more friends to make it a tournament of sorts!

Stop for refreshments at the halfway house, and finish off with some drinks and lunch at the local clubhouse.

It is a great way to spend time outside doing something fun for his birthday, with a little bit of competitiveness thrown in as well! Even beginners will love the experience.

Movie Marathon

Does the birthday biyhave a favorite movie he can watch on repeat?!

Perhaps a movie that he can never get others to watch with him? (*Ahem* Star Wars)

Grab some popcorn, drinks and your favorite binge-worthy movie for a chill way to spend your day with your friends.

This speaker is small and portable, and can even be clipped to his backpack or jeans when traveling. It is waterproof as well and can play music for over 10 hours before needing to be charged again.

White Sneakers

White sneakers are a classic closet item, but good-quality white sneakers are something we don’t always buy ourselves.

He will receive a pair of awesome crew socks in his surprise bag each month. The socks all have funky designs, and are made from high-quality combed cotton, which is both durable and comfortable!

It is a gift that lasts for a good few months.


If he loves to read, then a Kindle would be a great gift for him.
