My eldest daughter (known here as Kinetic Jr.) is turning 21 this month and I want to get her a memorable present.
What would have been the BEST GIFT EVER when you turned 21?

Kinetic Jr.: works full-time as a veterinary surgical assistant, goes to college full-time, owns her own horse and ives with her girlfriend outside of Cambridge, MA. She's into yoga, running, and taking care of herself and others around her. She's into music, Arrested Development, classic TV comedies (think I Love Lucy), beaches and yes, partying.
For her actual birthday, she's been saving her money for months and is treating her friends and family to a dinner at Redbones (she is an absolute sweetheart), with wild bar-hopping in Cambridge and Somerville to follow.
Let's assume the best idea I've had so far is to give her $2,100. I hate this idea. I want to give her something really amazing; something she'll remember forever (I've already put together the Kinetic, Jr. birth-to-today photo album, but...).
When she turned 18, she got some heirloom-quality jewelry and a new Mac. Jewelry isn't really her thing (but she could use a new computer).
Help me, hive mind!
