birth­day gifts

What to give a guy for 18 years?

Every young man in the year has one day that rel­a­tives, friends, rel­a­tives and a girl are ready to devote to him. It is, of course, about the birth­day. But if for the birth­day man the dif­fi­cul­ty lies only in where and with whom to cel­e­brate it, then for the guests it is sev­er­al days, or even eks, of think­ing about choos­ing a gift. To real­ly please the birth­day man, you should approach his choice cor­rect­ly.

Criterias of choice

Obvi­ous­ly, 18 years is not the eas­i­est age for both a young man and his envi­ron­ment. Ideals, aspi­ra­tions are chang­ing, a step into adult­hood is being tak­en, the start­ing point of which is the birth­day.

There­fore, peo­ple close to a teenag­er should start from cer­tain cri­te­ria in order to cor­rect­ly decide what to give him.

Cri­te­ria for choos­ing a gift.

  • The finan­cial posi­tion of the donor. First of all, it is worth eval­u­at­ing how much you can spend on a birth­day gift, and build on this in the future. Even with a small bud­get, you can make the nec­es­sary, orig­i­nal and valu­able sur­prise, from which the birth­day boy will be delight­ed.
  • Birth­day pref­er­ence. The hero of the occa­sion some­times direct­ly says what he would like to receive for his birth­day. And some­times oth­ers see for them­selves what he needs most at the moment, for exam­ple, a jack­et, wal­let, belt or bacweack. Also, pref­er­ences include unusu­al desires — this can be a tat­too, a para­chute jump, or going to a restau­rant “in the dark.” Also, almost any teenag­er wants to receive some kind of equip­ment as a gift, rang­ing from a flex­i­ble key­board or a wire­less mouse to a lap­top.
  • Hob­bies and type of activ­i­ty of the gift­ed. A cri­te­ri­on that will real­ly facil­i­tate the choice of gifts for guests and reduce the search time. In this case, spe­cial atten­tion should be paid to the birth­day man’s hob­bies, his atti­tude to ani­mals, his pas­sion for cre­ativ­i­ty, sci­ence or music, and sports.

Obvi­ous­ly, the hob­bies of the birth­day boy give the widest oppor­tu­ni­ties for choos­ing a gift, and this is exact­ly what you need to build on, giv­en your finan­cial sit­u­a­tion.

Gift Options

Eigh­teen is the moment when a boy turns into a man. At the same time, oth­ers have a ques­tion about what to give an adult son, nephew, god­son, grand­son or your soul­mate. In any of these options, it is worth start­ing from the inter­ests of the young man and being cre­ative in order to make the great­est impres­sion on the birth­day man.

There­fore, it is rec­om­mend­ed to under­stand what a young man would like to receive specif­i­cal­ly from you from those things that you can afford.

From a girl

The girl of an eigh­teen-year-old guy is the one who knows much more about him than his friends or par­ents. There­fore, her task is to make such a gift to her beloved, so that it is both mem­o­rable and prac­ti­cal, and in line with his inter­ests.

The most com­mon gifts from a girl.

  • Gift for two. A trip to the coun­try­side, excur­sions, tick­ets to an amuse­ment park, the­ater, con­cert or trav­el.
  • Coupon for an inter­est­ing quest for a group of friends, for spa treat­ments, for a pool, for a dis­count in a restau­rant or shop.
  • cre­ative gift, rang­ing from songs and poems to dance and embroi­dery.
  • Per­son­al item. Sater, foot­ball kit, shoes, wal­let, belt, bacweack or bag.
  • Food. Din­ner just for him or a roman­tic din­ner for two pre­pared by a girl. Often this is resort­ed to by girls who remem­ber that the way to a man’s heart lies through the stom­ach.

Tips for choos­ing a gift for a young man:

  • Remem­ber that the pri­or­i­ty in this sit­u­a­tion is the inter­ests of your soul­mate, not yours. There­fore, when choos­ing a gift for your loved one, think about whether it would be a good option for you or for him.
  • It is high­ly like­ly that the guy with you has already men­tioned more than once what he would like to receive as a gift. There­fore, do not be lazy and remem­ber what he was talk­ing about, and try to make him this sur­prise.
  • Think about what your young man real­ly likes, but what he can­not afford. Such a gift will real­ly please the birth­day boy.
  • Do not be afraid to do some­thing new and make your loved one a mem­o­rable video, col­lage, write a poem or draw a por­trait.
  • An expen­sive gift in the form of tech­nol­o­gy will be ll received in any case. It can be a car radio, tablet, Playsta­tion, phone, lap­top and oth­er options. It is impor­tant to under­stand in advance the need for such costs — does your young man want to receive from you on a hol­i­day some­thing of the pro­posed.

A gift from a girl on her 18th birth­day is often the most antic­i­pat­ed, so this issue must be approached thor­ough­ly. Do not dll on banal options. It is bet­ter to give some­thing that no one else will def­i­nite­ly present to him.

And must not for­get — you should not just give a gift, but make it inter­est­ing, pleas­ant­ly sur­pris­ing your soul­mate.

From parents

The ques­tion of a birth­day present for a son is espe­cial­ly acute for every moth­er. It can be dif­fi­cult to guess what a child wants by the age of 18, because his inter­ests, activ­i­ties and hob­bies change. Some­times you can count on close com­mu­ni­ca­tion beten father and son — in this case, it will be eas­i­er to make a gift, because the father is aware of the child’s pref­er­ences, but this is not typ­i­cal of all fam­i­lies. There­fore, often par­ents make some kind of uni­ver­sal sur­prise: mon­ey, watch­es or toi­let water. At the same time, gifts from par­ents always depend on finan­cial capa­bil­i­ties, so they can be divid­ed into bud­get and expen­sive ones.

Bud­get gifts from par­ents:

  • per­fumes or shor acces­sories;
  • inex­pen­sive watch­es;
  • clothes;
  • a gift in accor­dance with hob­bies (ball, box­ing gloves, club, etc.);
  • leather goods.

Expen­sive gifts from par­ents:

  • Lap­top or com­put­er;
  • tablet;
  • tele­phone;
  • smart watch;
  • trav­el;
  • cer­tifi­cate.

From par­ents, the birth­day boy is wait­ing for a valu­able gift with mean­ing and some kind of mes­sage.

It can be both a nec­es­sary expen­sive gift, and some­thing sin­cere: an album with child­hood pho­tographs of the birth­day per­son, a fam­i­ly heir­loom or some kind of mem­o­ra­bil­ia such as his first toy.

From friends

Gifts from friends are usu­al­ly some­thing fun­ny, fun and easy. Friends usu­al­ly know what will def­i­nite­ly please the birth­day boy. More­over, if a gift requires a lot of mon­ey, friends most often chip off and joint­ly acquire the nec­es­sary present.

The most com­mon gifts from friends:

  • mon­ey;
  • print­ed clothes;
  • hookah;
  • board games;
  • mug with print;
  • portable speak­er;
  • acces­so­ry for a per­son­al com­put­er, lap­top or set-top box;
  • cer­tifi­cates for extreme sports.

Tips for choos­ing gifts from friends.

  • Some­times it’s eas­i­er to coop­er­ate and buy a cool joint gift.
  • It should be remem­bered that mem­o­rable gifts are often giv­en by a girl and par­ents. Friends tend to give some­thing enter­tain­ing to dis­tract and have fun.
  • An orig­i­nal gift will be best received (a bot­tle of cham­pagne with the sig­na­tures of all friends, a foot­ball uni­form with the name of the birth­day boy and his favorite num­ber, a sat­shirt with a print asso­ci­at­ed with the hero of the occa­sion).

A sur­prise for a friend implies prac­ti­cal­i­ty and sim­plic­i­ty. By joint efforts, friends usu­al­ly delight not only with gifts, but also with some kind of cre­ative pro­gram. Some­times they come up with con­tests specif­i­cal­ly for the birth­day boy or a quest for his own apart­ment.

They record a video with con­grat­u­la­tions from all his friends, includ­ing those who have left, and present it on his birth­day.

From sister

The sis­ter’s gift depends on the degree of inti­ma­cy with the broth­er. The bet­ter they know each oth­er, the more per­son­al the gift will be. If the sis­ter is the youngest, then it can be some kind of draw­ing, an old broth­er’s toy, or some­thing hand­made. But if the sis­ter is the eldest and she and her broth­er are quite close, then com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent options are pos­si­ble.

Quite often, a sis­ter gives her broth­er some kind of neu­tral gift, but do not for­get that broth­er and sis­ter are one of the clos­est peo­ple to each oth­er. There­fore, a gift from a sis­ter should car­ry an impor­tant mes­sage — it is some­thing secret or real­ly very nec­es­sary.

From grandma

Grand­moth­er is an amaz­ing per­son, because she will not for­get about her grand­son’s birth­day, even if they have not com­mu­ni­cat­ed for a very long time. A gift from grand­ma is usu­al­ly gen­er­ous She will not only give advice, say warm words, sin­cere­ly and whole­heart­ed­ly con­grat­u­late, but also give some­thing nec­es­sary.

Hov­er, grand­moth­ers often do not under­stand what exact­ly their grand­son wants, and trust this choice direct­ly to him.

The most com­mon gifts from grand­ma are:

  • mon­ey;
  • Knit­ten things;
  • fam­i­ly val­ue;
  • any equip­ment (play­er, smart watch, portable charg­er).

For a grand­moth­er, mon­ey is not that impor­tant when it comes to a gift for her grand­son, so this is often a gen­er­ous sur­prise.

Some­times the grand­moth­er, togeth­er with the par­ents of the birth­day man, give an expen­sive com­mon gift — the birth­day man will def­i­nite­ly like such a sur­prise.

What can be done with your own hands?

It’s no secret that the best gift is a hand­made gift. When a per­son spends a lot of time cre­at­ing a gift, care­ful­ly look­ing for top­ics and devel­op­ing a plan for how to present every­thing, then the birth­day per­son receives much more emo­tions than from a reg­u­lar present.

At the same time, hand­made gifts can be divid­ed into sev­er­al cat­e­gories.

  • Mem­o­rable. A video film, a pho­to album, a poem, a col­lage, a scrap­book­ing card, a print­ed T‑shirt or sat­shirt, an arti­cle in a real news­pa­per or on a bsite, and so on.
  • Use­ful. Knit­ted sater or scarf, ren­o­va­tion in his room.
  • Unusu­al. A board game about a birth­day boy, an appli­ca­tion, a wall news­pa­per, a mosa­ic based on a pho­to of a birth­day boy.
  • com­ic. A fun­ny post­card, a pho­to book with fun­ny pho­tos of the birth­day boy, a song about a fun­ny inci­dent from the life of the hero of the occa­sion, many small gifts con­nect­ed with a play­ful poem that explains what thing and what it can come in handy for.

Any of these options implies the man­i­fes­ta­tion of inge­nu­ity and cre­ative think­ing.

But from such a sur­prise, the birth­day per­son will real­ly have a lot of emo­tions, so it’s worth tak­ing the time to sur­prise a loved one.

original ideas

A great option to save mon­ey and real­ly sur­prise the hero of the occa­sion is to pre­pare an orig­i­nal gift. It is real­ly worth spend­ing time on such a present, because such sur­pris­es are usu­al­ly the coolest and cause the most emo­tions not only for the one who receives them, but also for the guests.

At the same time, both the gift itself and its pre­sen­ta­tion can be orig­i­nal.

  • You can come up with some­thing indi­vid­ual for an adult young man. For exam­ple, inflate heli­um bal­loons with the face of a birth­day boy — 18 pieces. Each of the guests inhales heli­um and says his con­grat­u­la­tions, and the birth­day boy at the end thanks for the con­grat­u­la­tions, per­form­ing the same actions.
  • You can write a let­terwhich will describe the most inter­est­ing cas­es from the life of the birth­day man and send it by mail, send a telegram as if from the past, or record a con­grat­u­la­tion on an audio cas­sette and turn it on to the birth­day man on the play­er.
  • Come up with a quest around the city for the hero of the occa­sion. Lay out clues and send him in search or give out papers with words to the friends of the birth­day boy, which the hero of the occa­sion should receive in ran­dom order. Then he must col­lect from them some phrase that will lead him to a gift. You can also buy the birth­day boy’s favorite board game and write your own rules for it exclu­sive­ly for the hero of the occa­sion.

An orig­i­nal con­grat­u­la­tion should be accom­pa­nied by the gift itself, so that the birth­day per­son receives not only emo­tions, but also some­thing valu­able and desired.
