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.
If you know him well you can just think from your heart and he will love whatever you give him
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?
