When it comes to milestone birthdays like the 18th, the entire day is special, not just the present. Presents can come and go, but your time and "presence" is more important. Making a memory earns the highest rating of the special gifts received. Begin with a special place to spend time with the birthday guy or girl in and build from there. After giving your complete attention and presence, your presents will surely be hits.

Prepare breakfast to start the birthday morning off right. If the birthday girl's favourite breakfast food is chocolate chip pancakes, serve it up with extra chocolate chips and maybe some chocolate kisses on top for good measure. Chocolate is never turned down as a birthday present, even in the morning.
Give gifts that offer an adventure by purchasing activities for birthday guys to do, that can't be wrapped in a box, such as a scuba diving course, golfing lessons, guitar lessons or a father-and-son driving experience. For example, the father-and-son driving experience offered by Days to Amaze allows parent and child to drive an Aston Martin or Ferrari 360.
Pamper the 18-year-old princess by indulging her in a spa facial treatment, a foot and back massage or a toe and fingernail French manicure. Purchasing her bath sea aromatherapy salts, moisturising soaps and glistening body sprays will definitely make her day. Follow up on these types of presents by purchasing a special lock for the bathroom door just for her. No more will she have to worry about the little brothers walking in on her. She can indulge herself in her luxurious bath foams in peace.
Consider other ideas for the 18-year-old that matches his individuality. Antique books, journals, planting a special tree or flower are other ideas that can successfully be implemented within the birthday celebration. Bury a time capsule to be dug up during the next milestone birthday, at the age of 21, and allow all of the loved ones of the birthday guy to write a special sealed note to him to place within the capsule. Get a little sentimental at the 18th birthday. There's only one of them, after all.
Decorate the cake to fit the personality of the person having the birthday. Gone are the days of birthday themes and clowns. Concentrate on a delicious cake that looks pleasing. Don't forget the candles.
