bikes? cars? watches? whats the budget

Difficult to get a "nice"= luxury watch on that price. Probably more into electronics (ps5 or similar).
Experiences are more into the budget an its possible to do them from time to time.
Narrow list:
Electronics
Some very good shoes
Middle to low price watches
Adventure experiences:
Skydiving
Piloting a plane
Driving/karting courses

Need a budget!

Edited!

Does he golf? Voucher a round or two for a nice course in your area.

How about fancy chocolates or an article of clothing from a brand he really likes that's pricy?

Get some nice clothes + tailoring. Best thing I got myself recently was a pair of jeans and got them tailored to fit exactly right.

Opal Nugget Ice Maker. Makes sonic ice in the comfort of your home kitchen.

Does he cook? A really nice American made chefs knife would be cool.

Premium pair of noise canceling headphones, which can also be a placeholder for a future vacation, and a small sanctuary when it’s his turn to sleep when it’s your baby shift.

For watches: Hamilton khaki filed or a Seiko Presage would be good picks!

Does he play pc/video games and uses a chair while playing? My way of relaxing from work is to play games with buddies. My fiancée got me a gaming chair and I wanted to propose to her all over again.

An instrument!

Fancy kitchen (sushi grade) knife.
Inlaid cutting board.

So my 18yo daughter who just started college texted me that she wants to do solo Europe travel in December and mom (my ex wife approved it). My daughter has traveled extensively in the US and abroad with me. However, she has never traveled even to a neighboring town in the US solo and is just learning what it means to live by herself as a freshman. I'm very concerned for her safety but if I put my foot down, my daughter will detest me.

Has anyone here been able to successfully manage being a fully involved mother (attending all children’s events, working on their homework with them, making them home cooked meals) and a lawyer? I’m thinking if it’s not possible then just leaving the legal field.

I personally want to raise my own kids.
