Turning seventeen is a big deal. It's a big milestone in their life. Teens will likely want to celebrate their 17th birthday with a party, event, or activity that’s new, exciting, and mature, just like the milestone age they’re approaching. Rather than doing something routine as a slumber party or bowling outing, make your 17th birthday unforgettable with one of these super creative, fun, and cool 17th birthday ideas.

You probably have a lot on your to-do list as it is, but one important task is to figure out what you’re going to give your child on their birthday. There’s no need to panic because there are a lot of ideas that would be well-suited for your teenager. All you have to do is put your thinking cap on and start narrowing down the options that you believe are best for your child. See gift ideas for your child’s seventeenth birthday.   


Although it’s a big expense, a new car is a great gift for your child who’s about to learn how to drive. Shop around the car dealer and pick a vehicle that’s really impressive like the used Mazda CX-3. It’s definitely the more dynamic drive amongst the compact-SUV rivals. This is a thoughtful and useful gift that will put a big smile on your child’s face. You won’t need to worry about sharing cars any longer because they’ll have their own. 


A beautiful necklace, promise ring or earrings is the perfect way to say you love your son or daughter. If the gift is for him, consider an attractive watch that he’ll enjoy wearing. It’ll be fun shopping for and picking out a nice piece of jewellery to satisfy the birthday boy or girl. Another sentimental idea is to pass down jewellery from you or your mother and explain to your daughter what it means to you to have her wear it. 

Family Holiday

Why not involve the entire family in the fun and plan a trip to take together? It’ll be a great escape away from the responsibilities of work and school. Pick somewhere the group will enjoy and plan it all out so that all your birthday child has to do is show up. It’s a great opportunity to experience family bonding time and catch up with each other. Swim in the pool, go to an amusement park and indulge in tasty restaurants. You’ll soon be laughing and playing together without a care in the world.


Most teenagers love to dance and what better way to celebrate their 17th birthday than hosting a birthday party with family and friends. Hire a hall, some entertainment and make a few sandwiches, not forgetting a cake and dance the night away with friends and family.

Night Out

One way to treat your birthday boy or girl is to buy them new clothes. After they open the gift, surprise them with the fact that you’ll be going out to dinner at a fancy restaurant or out to a show at the theatre. Plan a night out on the town they’ll never forget and invite the entire family. Your child will feel special when you treat him or her to activities that make them feel like an adult.

Turning seventeen is a big deal. That’s why it’s important to shower your special teenager with love and presents and make it one to remember.

    1. It's such a lovely age, I think my cousin will get a car for her birthday! Lucky girl!

  3. Such lovely ideas! I don't remember my 17th but my 18th I had a trip to London to Regents park, it was the best thing ever! I love going on a daytrip for my birthday :D xx

    1. Sounds like a great idea to me! I've followed you too!

  4. Great ideas here - I think you definitely can't go wrong with jewellery! x

  5. These are some great suggestions! I can't even remember what I did for my 17th birthday! I did get a car that year, it was passed down from my sister though and still my favourite car I've owned!

  6. Some great ideas here. I especially love the idea of a holiday as that is something for everyone ;-)

    1. I would have loved to have had a holiday for my 17th!

  7. My 17th wasn’t really a big deal compared to my 17th, but I think if I’d have been bought a car I might have learnt to drive a lot sooner so that’s a good idea 😊

    1. Oh yes, I think if I was brought a car I would have been driving a lot sooner.

  8. I got a car for my 18th, but I got driving lessons for my 17th! Evey birthday seems huge when you are that age doesn't it? Now I'm happy to let them drift by a little more unnoticed lol!!

    1. Completely with you on this one, now I am more than happy to never mention a birthday again!
