30. The Iron Man Cycling Jersey
What’s the best way to let your twenty-something year-old bike-loving boyfriend know you think he’s a superhero? We believe it’s with this rather awesome Iron Man Cycling Jersey from Fixgear. It’s got a back pocket, in which he can store all his personal effects, and which can even accommodate a water bottle. The fabric is light weight, absorbs moisture and dries quickly. What is more, the design has been especially thought up with flexibility and mobility in mind. The seller carries all sizes, from S to 3XL. The jersey is also easy to remove, since it’s equipped with an elegantly concealed front zipper. PS: You can also buy the matching Iron Man cycling shorts here. The Iron Man cycling jersey is on our list of gifts for twenty somethings as an awesome present for a biker guy in his early, mid, or late 20s.
29. Black Light Make-Up
In case you were wondering, yes, black light parties are still all the rage among twenty-somethings. This is why we just couldn’t leave out the FLUO Night black light make-up pigment from our list of gifts for twenty somethings. The range of pigments comes in eight vibrant colors, which include fuchsia, blue, green, and yellow. They’re easy to apply. Twenty-something men and women can safely apply them throughout body, since they are made from natural ingredients. The colors are also visible in natural lighting. However, they only truly come alive when the normal lights are off and the black light fun comes on! The perfect gift for 20-something girls and guys who love parties!
28. The Wearable Sleeping Bags
Got a 20-something year old friend who loves camping? Go ahead and buy them the Wearable Sleeping Bags from Selk’bag. You can choose from a wide range of colors and types of fabric. Some are more light weight for leisurely camping in a warm climate, while others will withstand even the lowest mountain top temperatures in a freezing blizzard. Use them outdoors, indoors, carry them easily in your trekking backpack, and stand out in the rain as much as you want to: all variants are water-proof. Extra bonus: the newer models are fitted with a quick release hand closure system, which bypasses the relative nuisance of having to zip the suit up and down all the time. This is a thoughtful gift for both birthday and Christmas.
27. The Rotating Floor iPad Stand
Yes, iPads are great, but – you can’t really do anything else with your hands while using them. You can’t read a book or watch a movie in bed properly on them, for one thing. You can’t really use them comfortably for recipes while you cook. And if you do use them in bed, you risk getting what users refer to as ‘iPad lip’ – a fat lip from dropping the device and allowing it to hit you. Trust us, your hip twenty-somethings all know what we’re talking about. Luckily, the TaoTronics Floor stand for the iPad can help them avoid all this from now on. It’s fully swiveling, made in high-grade aluminum. It’s also compatible with all iPads from the 3rd generation onward, as well as with other tablet PC brands. This gadget makes one of the best gift ideas for a 20-something who has everything.
26. The Magic Wand TV Remote Control
A magic wand to change the channel! One of the cutest birthday ideas for 20-something year-old gifts we found on this great big Internet. After all, let’s face it: twenty-somethings do still spend a whole lot of time in front of the magic picture box, even though they’ve got far cooler gadgets to entertain themselves with these days. So why not use a magic wand to operate the magic box magically, from afar? This wizard wand look-alike comes with 13 functions, and is compatible with most brands of remote-controlled devices. That’s right, it’s not just for TVs, you can ‘teach it’ to operate just about anything that comes with remote control.
25. The World’s Largest Glowing Moonlight Sticker
Yes, we’ve all seen wall decals before, but Clair de Lune is the largest glow in the dark sticker of the moon. It’s made in Seoul, South Korea, but ships all over the world. In plain light it’s dark grey, just like the actual moon. With a 100 centimeter diameter, it is so large that we don’t actually recommend it for bedroom, unless you know you can sleep with a strong light source around. It’s perfect for your twenty-something ‘romantic soul’ friends, and will definitely create a striking atmosphere inside their home. Just think about it: you can enjoy a moonlit dinner with them, irrespective of how cloudy the sky might be, or of the season. It makes a creative gift for romantic 20-something couples.
24. The Ring Clock
Is it a ring? Is it a clock? It’s actually both! More than that, it comes equipped with LED lights, which make it usable in the dark. The Ring Clock was designed in the UK, all thanks to an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign. The campaign was successfully completed, and the rings are now available for sale. The ring clock is fairly accurate, and a great conversation starter! It is on our list of gifts for twenty somethings as a wonderful present for both young men and women.
23. The Growing Jewelry Grass Ring
Where to Buy: HAF
Icelandic designer Hafsteinn Juliusson may have hit a gold mine with this ring, even though it’s designed in sterling silver. It plays upon the increasingly popular eco-friendly trend, to which a large part of Generation Y subscribes. And what could be more environmentally friendly that a green, living ring? The grass ring above is part of the Growing Jewelry collection, and actually comes ‘planted’ with moss. In order to survive for as long as 8 to 12 months, the moss needs to be watered every 5 weeks, or, alternatively, the ring can be deep-frozen. The wearer should also take care not to water it excessively. Once the initial moss expires, it can always be replaced with a fresh batch.
22. The Razor Drifting Go Kart
Trust us, millennials love go-karting, as there are few other outdoor activities that remind them more of their childhood. Besides, the Razor Drift Crazy Cart isn’t your grandma’s carting experience! It’s a pretty intense type of cart, which allows you to back-end drifts, run it in crazy mode, go in reverse, drive sideways, pivot in place, take crazy turns, and even reach a speed of 12 mph. The vehicle, though small on first glance, can hold a weight of up to 132 lbs. Let the fun begin – and watch as your seemingly adult friends morph right back into kids again with this drifting go-kart! The Crazy cart is on our list of gifts for twenty somethings as one of the most awesome birthday ideas for 20 year old male friends.
21. The Dual Temperature Mattress
Twenty-something year-olds are at that point in their lives when they first start sharing living (and sleeping) arrangements with their significant others. While some dread the move, others revel in it. However, sharing a home might give rise to all sorts of problems. From negotiating toilet seat arrangements to the temperature in the bedroom, it’s all up for grabs and discussions. But now in comes the Dual Temperature Mattress, which literally allows you to set one temperature for the left side of the bed and a wholly different one for the right side. Pretty nifty, we think. What a great gift for young 20-something couples!
