There are plenty of books full of useful and wholesome tips for life that you could give someone for their 21st birthday. That’s easy to find. And a little boring; let’s be honest. This book is different. It might not come in quite as handy, but it’s a lot more fun.

Social media is everywhere. It’s where we get our news, our gossip and how we stay in touch with friends. It also plays host to some of our best memories and golden moments. Pick your friend’s best 140 characters of the year, whether it’s hilarious or embarrassingly awful, and get it framed for them to remember forever. It’s even better than going viral.
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.
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!
21 years is old enough to have matured and mellowed out enough to drink easily from the glass, without the harshness or burn of younger liquors. It is also not too old to be too expensive or too precious to drink. Plus, a 21 year old bottle for a 21st birthday gift is ridiculously perfect, don’t you think?
