What do you give an 18 year old for her birthday?

My daughter is going to be 18 in December and I have no idea of what to give her besides money. The only other idea I can think of is a photo shoot with my cousin who is a photographer.

  • Well I'm 19 and prago lol

    But If my mom where to get me something. I'd want something from her heart and thats creative.

    Your photoshoot idea is fun.

    Heres my idea,

    Get her a photo album that she can wright in, plus a pretty pen.

    Plus a camra. Plus the photoshoot.

    Then add in the first page a picture of her and you, when she was a little girl.

    Then wright next to it, you've grown into a beautiful young woman so fast..or something.

    Then add the camra for her to be the photographer, to contenue to add memmories into her album.

    Then the photo shoot.
    Take her and one of her friends or so and have em take really creative photos, Plus the one with you and her. Then add em to the album.

    Hope this Helps.

  • I would give her an exciting experience. Maybe a parachute jump. Maybe one flying lesson. Horse riding lessons. Does she cook for herself or the family? Then a special cooking class might be suitable. Maybe a snorkelling course. Maybe a tour as a passenger on a Harley Davidson. Does she draw or paint? Then some lessons with an established artist. Maybe an underground caving experience. Maybe white water rafting. You could organise for the experience to be taken when the weather is good, rather than on the day of her birthday.

  • Ask her. She knows what she likes, what she does like. Just talk to her about things that she'd prefer and go from there..

  • I would ask her lol. I wouldn't go with the photo shoot unless she's REALLY into things like that. Money, gift cards, laptop, iPod/mp3 player, spa day, a personalized piece of jewelry (like her name and birthstone on a necklace), concert tickets to her favorite band or singer, a short vacation to somewhere she's never been but wants to go, etc. That's all my brain can throw out right now. Good luck!
