Coolbox Smart Toolbox
If the 21 year old you know is a maker or tinkerer, they surely already have a toolbox. What they need though, is a Coolbox. This modern evolution of the toolbox has come a long way from being just a place to store tools. It has built-in power strips and an internal battery, a clock, wheels, bluetooth audio, an LED lamp, a whiteboard, and even a bottle opener.
Go hit some clubs in another city, state, or even country. Book the tickets, make reservations, plan the itinerary, rent the car, and put everything into an envelope for them to open on their special day. Watch their eyes light up as they realize what you just handed them. That moment will be as much fun as the trip.
Everyone who grew up during the golden age of game shows dreamed of one day standing atop the glorious Plinko board, dropping metal biscuits and watching them bounce earthward in the direction of a richer destiny. But since few will ever experience that magnificent moment, we have a smaller, more realistic version for the drinkers of the world. This is Plinko for the people, and we call it Drinko. Because if they can’t end up richer at the end of the day, at least they can end up drunker.
21 year-olds don’t need fancy furniture. They move around a lot, they’re messy, they don’t have much money, and they like to party, so furniture can be a liability. Help them embrace that lifestyle in comfort with this giant beanbag chair. It’s the perfect place to crash.
Sure, it will be strange when you have to get that cheek swab from them without them knowing what you’re up to, but it will all make sense when you reveal this birthday portrait that showcases their unique DNA. Or you could just give them the DNA collection kit as the gift if that’s easier. Or just swab your dog. They’ll never know the difference.
Twenty-one is old enough to drown the sorrow of losing it all in the stock market with a bottle of cheap booze. Get them started on the path to rock bottom, not by buying them the bottle, but by giving them their first shares of stock, and thereby setting them off down the path of inevitable financial ruin that comes from gambling hard earned money on stocks.
After a hard day of playing video games and dreaming about what to do with their lives, planning dinner can seem like a real chore to many 21 year olds. With a click of your mouse, you can take away that problem for weeks on end. They’ll enjoy the flavors of the world and discover new recipes without the hassle of decision-making.
Mixing cocktails is both an art and a science. This 21st birthday gift idea embraces that fact and throws some random chance in just to keep it interesting. Roll the dice to get a combination of ingredients, then use the included book to get the right ratios to avoid crapping out.
Sometimes 21 year olds haven’t really developed a refined appreciation for art yet. That’s why so many people that age do things like hang beer ads and rock band posters on their walls. This 21st birthday gift idea allows them explore the world of art and change the display on demand. They might just learn something and it will make their room look much classier than that neon PBR light.
