Original 18th birthday gift





Keran
Hello, next month 2 of my friends friends (1 female, 1 male) are having their 18th birthday. It's very important age here in our country (if somewhere it's different), it's when You legally become an adult, but I guess it's pretty known.

However onto the main topic, me and my friends are looking for an original gift, that they will remember for their entire life and that will shock them (in a good way) and the whole party, afterall You only have Your 18th birthday once and it needs to be special.
So I come to You all for advice, can You tell me what could I possibly buy them? One gift for the guy and 1 gift for the gall
Some additional info:
The girl:
All sorts of gift ideas are welcome, especially some exotic (even erotic) ones, she's a very cool girl who likes to party, kind of spoiled to some extend, overall she's not a shy person.
The guy:
Likes to party, drink, he's quite popular, has many friends, is the life and soul of every party, however he's pretty reliable, knows how to handle himself and likes to organise parties/trips.

We're planning to spend (converted from our currency) about 50 dollars for each present, which here You can buy quite a lot with. But probably the prize will go higher if needed, as said before, it needs to be special and original, because both are pretty rich and the creativity should be a major factor here, rather than a highly valuable gift.

So I'm waiting for some awesome and original ideas Smile

Speaking as someone who hasn't been 18 yet (and so hasn't received any just-turned-18 gifts Smile ) :

I am not coming up with any specific gift ideas, but I feel it should be something to shock them and get into them that they are finally 18. But if they were already given quite enough freedom, i.e, there is not anything new they could do due to turning 18, that would not work.

Since both of them like partying, why not arrange the greatest party ever...or something like tickets to a far away, totally out-of-the world concert? Maybe you could try to get them to like each other, even! That would be the best present. Smile (IF they are not already together..or..they have other girlfriends/boyfriends or..this request is totally weird. )

Just my 2c. Wink

My brother got me the best 18th birthday present ever: a two-day road trip to see my favorite band play in another city. I was so happy. I would say, it's hard to answer this without knowing those people personally. Just think of something they really like or that means a lot to them and try to plan around that.

I bought some of my friends porn for their 18th birthdays. They all thought that it was a funny idea.

like missdixy said, give some tickets to the events that they no longer need supervision to go to.
Doesn't have to be adult product that's either alchohol or sex related Very Happy
(althought giving a pack of condom was fun in my time, now a day it's nothing special~ )

I think tickets are a great idea, but would not shock the party at all.

However, you can always present the present in an interesting way, such as having an inflatable doll give the present from somewhere inappropriate. Wink That's not really terribly entertaining to me now, but I would've laughed like crazy when I was younger.

if they aren't vrigins yet, pop their bubble as a group! that would be a real shock!
hehe jk jk.
i would say buy tickets to another country on the same day or the next day, and surprise! plane tickets are real cheap, like $200 for return!!! right now air canada has super specials to hong kong, something like 150 only!!

good luck

haha if you are going to do something like this, do make sure they have passports first!

Um... 18th. The purpose of an 18th is to get completely off your head and make sure some crazy stuff goes down.

My present ideas:
- Drugs
- Alcohol
- Drugs & alcohol
- More alcohol


Oh also make sure you organize a good party for them. Some of the best parties I've been to in the past have been 18th birthday parties.

Thanks for the input. A party for them is already organised in a nice restaurant/club, there'll be lots of alcohol, food, alcohol, dancing and some alcohol ;] but no drugs, because drugs are bad ;>

The buying-them-a-trip idea seems really nice, but I doubt we'll be able to pull it of on such a short notice, plus it would be quite troublesome so I think the present needs to be more down to earth, I'll try looking for something in some sort of oddities shop or alcohol related shops, maybe auction websites...

However, as Dean_The_Great said, presenting the present in an interesting way would do the trick of shocking the party. It's a great idea and I didn't actually thought about it before, we'll try to figure some fun way to 'give' them the gifts.

Thanks again for the help Smile

Love is life, these are the most beautiful feelings of life.

Love become life when it is both sided. exchanging gifts is best way to increase love and to make it two sided. however the gift should be according to your lovers psyche. a tailored gift such as necklace with a love poems or romantic messages can be the best choice for it. Poetry is language of love, a love poem of a few words has more significance than a thousands word letter.
