  • Aside form a nice dinner you could take her to a day spa, or spend a girls day with her and do lunch and pedicures. If she isn't into the whole feminine pampering then there's always the beach/park/lakebotanical gardens, or a nice picnic.

    Granted I had my 23rd birthday at the roller rink because I hadn't been in close to 8 years, it was a so much fun!

    My cousin is still living at home at 28, I offered to send her a security deposit for he own place and she didn't see the humor in it... (Obviously not all adult children living at home are hopeless moochers that are lazy, I know that alot of students and young adults just can't afford to live alone in this economy)

  • We stopped birthday parties when the kids were about 12. My kids are adults now. All the relatives get together for dinner when someone has a birthday now. No big party thing when they are grown up,in other words.

  • The last few years my adult daughter, who is now 25, enjoys for me to take her and two of her best friends out of town about 3 hrs. away...stay in a condo, shop, and eat out...just have girls' time. We have done this about 6 yrs. now and we always have such a great time. I am grateful she still chooses for mom to go along! :)

  • I'd say a moving out party would be in order. Then, a dinner at a nice restaurant with the family or a b-day cake at your house... but I pray my kids (still teens) aren't living with me when they are 25. good luck.
