Default Birthday gift for 18 year old boy

I'd like to get my godson something nice for his 18th birthday. He doesn't live nearby so I don't see him very often and truthfully don't have a great feel for what he'd like. I do know that he is NOT into fishing/hunting/sports, etc... He's into theater, music and such things.

Any suggestions?

Money. I know it's kind of impersonal but it really is what the kids want.

if you answered anything other than a girl, you got the questions wrong.

What kind of budget we working with? Are we talking 20 dollar hookers or 10k escorts here? But, seriously, how much are you wanting to spend?

Electric bicycles are hot around SoCal. A bit more freedom, not as scary as a motorcycle. Check out Murf bikes in San Clemente. No affiliation

Concert tickets. Good ones. Mine turned 18 and never been to a real rock show. Gave him tickets to see Maiden. Front row. He's an old rocker at heart so tailor to to taste.
