18th Birthday Gift Ideas

18th birthday gifts

Coming of age – whether the starting of the teenage years or a sixtieth is a time when you look back over the years, picturing your journey up to this point. You can turn every past year of their lives into unique birthday gifts to help them celebrate the major milestone that is the 18th birthday.

The Big 18th Birthday

Birthday parties and the highly anticipated personalised 18th birthday gifts seem to be the most important to teenagers coming of age. Maybe it’s because every year you turn a year older you feel more mature and ready to conquer the world. The 18th birthday is perhaps the most important of them all so birthday gifts for the 18-year-old are crucial. The 18th birthday is the day a young person lands real responsibility for the first time. Voting, driving and going out is all part of becoming an adult and the 18th birthday marks a milestone in a young person’s life.

Not only do you give them a great gift in itself, like a laptop case, for example, but you also give them a gift covered in their favourite photos of them and their friends. The gift itself all depends on the 18-year-old in question. Is he a gadget expert? Shop personalised 18th birthday gifts for him and give him an iPad or Kindle case. Is she a beauty queen? Then shop 18th birthday ideas for girls and give her a make-up bag or handbag. Does she love decorating her room? Then give her home gifts such as photo cushions and photo canvas prints! Whichever item you choose the gift can be covered in photos.

Gifts For Your 18-Year-Old Daughter

Another perfect 18th birthday gift for young women are personalised bags such as the handbag, make-up bag and shopper bag. It might not the Louis Vuitton they always go on about but this shopper bag will feature something even better than a designer logo – her and her friends! 18-year old girls love taking photos of them and their friends on nights out so why not make her a stunning shopper bag with one of those photos? Or even turn several photos into a photo montage which can go on a shopper bag.

Gifts For Your 18-Year-Old Son

A gift for him could be a stunningly sophisticated photo filmstrip montage. This could show them in a timeline, from early teenage years until now. It could maybe be of them doing something exciting or maybe one defining moment on a photo canvas. His favourite film icon on a photo canvas print? If he is on the verge of a new job, or about to start university, a photo laptop case or phone case would be a great 18th birthday present for a young man.

Photo deckchairs with a photo montage are superb birthday gifts for an 18-year old man. You can select some of their favourite pictures: baby pictures mixed with more recent ones, and added text with his name. Your son is bound to be impressed and most likely his mates will be too! Great for lounging in the garden on a hot summer day.
