Every day, for decades, preserve and store some perishable goods. Eventually, start selling them as birthday gifts that were provably prepared on the day someone was born.
Why?
  • Cool birthday gifts that were created on the day someone was born.
  • An investment where people buy insignificant things on a daily basis that become worth a lot more as time goes on.
  • Long-term store of value.
  • A retirement pension for someone who spends decades preparing gifts and selling them in their older years.
How it works
Every day, you buy a few pieces of perishable goods that are not expected to last for more than a few days. Depending on what the goods are, you freeze-dry, vacuum seal, or otherwise preserve them so that they will last for decades.
You store a receipt alongside every piece. It serves as a sort of certificate of age. Can we come up with additional proof of age that sets you apart from anyone trying to sell fakes when this becomes a lucrative business?
For the first 17 years, you make no money. You patiently wait for your goods to turn 18. From the 18th birthday onwards it begins to make sense to give someone a birthday gift that was created on the day they were born.
What are some perishable goods that cold be preserved for decades and serve as gifts?
  • Newspapers
  • Canned food
  • Freshly baked goods, freeze dried and vacuum sealed
  • Big mac or other popular junk food
  • freeze dried flowers enclosed in glass
  • fresh flowers enclosed in blocks of epoxy
  • what else?

To prove the creation time, take a polaroid photo of the person while they are preparing the goods. Have the front page of a local daily newspaper visible in the background and have the person sign their name and date on the background.
If someone wanted to verify authenticity, the person could theoretically be looked up decades later (dead or alive).
Pack the photo and the product receipt alongside the product.

Someone would take a photo of your mother eating something the day she went into labor to give birth to you. They take a piece of the food and preserve it (freeze-dry + vacuum seal or encase in epoxy resin).
You would have received some of that food through the placenta and later through breastfeeding. That would be your first meal in this world.
Many years later you receive an actual piece of it as a birthday gift.

If you ever get incarcerated on death row, you can request that to be your final meal. Making it go full circle. Some dark humor I couldn't resist:)

Some platforms let you advertise to people who have birthdays on specific days. You could figure out a way to advertise such birthdays products to family and friends of the person whose birthday you have a gift for.

Significant risk accompanies this project. You'd have to store it for 18 years, possibly move it to a different location if you resettle. Then, you'd be selling to someone whom you know, probably family and friends.
Before that, you'd need proof that a certain item can last 18 years or longer before even attempting this.

Goran Radanovic There are proper ways of preserving food that makes it easily last for decades.
The idea is not solely for family members. The entire warehouse could be offered for sale to gift shops, or sold via eBay and similar.
