What is a good birthday present for a boy who's turning 18?
By Tweekette from Elkhart, IN
Boys like food right?
What I like to do for friends and relatives it to get an extra large wine bottle, which can be bought at a wine making store. First wash it out and let it dry.
Then fill it up with M&Ms or Skittles or any other small candies that will fit though the top. For a visually pleasing look, sort them in colors.
They always welcome some cash, no matter how small. As a matter of fact that is what they prefer! Gift certificates to fast food restaurants is always appreciated.
Instead of buying a card, write a note and wish them a Happy Birthday with a sentiment and say "instead of spending money by buying a card, I decided to give you the dollars I would have spent on a card."
Shoes, Clothes nick nacs, M&M's? Wrong grandma!
If you give them any of those then give them the reciept too so they can exchange it.
What shall I gift my younger brother on his 18 birthday?
Wishful keychains are fun; get him a Porsche or Jaguar one (or whatever dream car he fancies).
I would give him a gift card from BestBuy for One Dollar for every year, and $10.00 for good luck.
My bestfriend is 18 and he already got me something, but I don't know what to get him. Please help! Thanks.
My son is turning 18th on 1st June. Please help with how to make his birthday as a memorable day of his life.

I am low on funds; do you have any good ideas for a male 18th birthday?
