18th Birthday Gift Ideas For Him

18th Birthday Gift Ideas For Him

Turning 18 is one of life’s major milestones -  from finishing school to your first beer, turning 18 really is the start of the rest of your life.

Such a momentous occasion calls for a thoughtful, original gift to celebrate! So, if you’ve got a special young man in your life and you’re looking for the perfect 18th birthday gift for him, you’ve come to the right place! 

In our guide, you’ll find some of our favourite gift ideas for him and our top hampers picks from our extensive range 18th Birthday Hampers

Make his first drink a memorable one with our Premium Beer Box! It features a combination of popular Australian made beers for him to try including Stone & Wood Pacific Ale, Burleigh Brewing Co Lager, Little Creatures Pale Ale and Wild Yak Ale. 

Plus, there’s a number of sweet and savoury snacks for him to pair them with, including crispbread and chutney, chocolate macadamias and locally sourced cookies and beef jerky from Byron Bay. 


If you’re looking for a way to recognise and celebrate his newfound independence, then we’d suggest a mini-fridge

Whether he’s still at home, moving out or living in a dorm, it’s a good idea for him to have his own space to store drinks and snacks. It’s thoughtful and practical, and if you’d like to make it extra special, you could pop a few of our favourite yummy treats from Byron Bay inside!

If you’re purchasing a pressie for a young man that appreciates a unique and thoughtful gift, then our Gifts for Him Hamper is the perfect choice. 

There’s a great selection of locally sourced snacks to try, as well as Australian made socks and skin care products inside to make him feel pampered and special. We love this gift for an 18th birthday, because it's both practical and fun. 

Mennie Brand’s hand dyed socks are a great way to celebrate his entrance into the world of work or higher education and we know he’ll be truly appreciative of the quality of Sanctum’s luxurious Body Spa and Church Farm’s handmade soap. 


Bubbles & Bites Hamper


Want to be a bit more upbeat? Our Bubbles & Bites Hamper is the perfect gift to kick off an 18th birthday celebration! It’s brimming with an assortment of locally sourced goodies from Byron Bay which pair perfectly with the star of the show - a bottle of the delectable sparkling wine! 

With its wonderfully balanced dry stone fruit flavours, Wolf Blass Chardonnay Pinot Noir is easy to love. Enjoy it with a mix of sweet and salty peanuts from Byron Bay Cacao, chocolate coated macadamias and a selection of cookies! 

Yes, he’s officially an adult when he turns 18, but that doesn’t mean he’s all grown up! Help him learn the ropes to adulthood with Stephen Wildish’s funny, illustrated guide to navigating the real world. How to Adult is hilarious and filled with lots of great advice and witty insights into what it means to be a ‘real adult’. 

Give him a chance to sample some of Australia’s favourite craft beers with our Stone & Wood Beer Hamper. The Stone and Wood brewery was born and bred in Byron Bay and is well known for its delicious and approachable range of beers, ideal for a discerning 18 year old!

 Inside, we’ve also included a selection of gourmet goodies for him to munch on, including local favourites like Byron Bay cookies and coconut coated Bliss Balls, as well as premium Byron Beef Jerky, sweet & salty peanuts and Teriyaki Munchies.
