Drive a Race Car
Speed is dangerous, but some kinds are more dangerous than others. This one is mostly just fun. But be careful: once they’ve experienced the feeling of flying around the track, the engine roaring like a wild beast, the smell of smoldering rubber in the air, they may never quite be the same.
Traditional shot glasses are durable and convenient, but you can’t eat them. That’s just a fact. Don’t try it; many people have, and they’re all dead. This machine breaks the mold by replacing glass with cookies (the best ideas are always stupid obvious). Jello shots are no longer the undisputed champion of the alcohol kingdom.
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.
It’s true – a bottle of their favorite wine will last a few hours, at best (and they may not even remember drinking it!), but the memory of that crazy day spent white water rafting or skydiving will last a lifetime – even if they did have their eyes closed and were screaming for most of it!
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.
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.
There are a lot of books out there that TELL you how to do things, but this book SHOWS you as well. With hundreds of easy-to-follow illustrations, Show Me How: 500 Things You Should Know - Instructions for Life from the Everyday to the Exotic is a gift they’ll treasure for years to come.
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.
By age 21 a person will hopefully have read enough to have a treasured favorite book. In our digital era, however, books have become more disposable than ever, which is why a lovely first edition copy can be so special. Bonus points if the book is actually good.
