Gifts

Okay. My sister turns eighteen in a few weeks, and I have no idea what to get her. So I turn to the All-Knowing Friends-List. What is an appropriate gift to give someone turning eighteen? (Assume this is your average teenager.)

I gave all my friends jewellery, more classic than fashionable. THat's kinda unoriginal though.

Well, I gave her a locket for her 16th birthday, and a pearl necklace and earrings set for her 17th. I'm trying to think of something different for this year. :-)

There's always a bracelet ;) Erm, a nice pen maybe - you could engrave it.

When I turned eighteen, everyone just gave me money -- but I think that's mainly because none of them knew what else to get me.

*grin* That may be the default. I'd ask her, but I can never get hold of her.

I'm glad to see money is your default gift. To me it's cole, but that is just me.

Go for something personal, if you can.

You could get her a gift certificate to a music store that is enough to get two cd's and then take her out to dinner. Someplace nice that allows y'all to dress up.

If that isn't possible, I'd say a bracelet or other piece of jewelry that might match the locket you gave her for her 16th birthday. Or pearl earrings.

Ooops, I saw that you already gave her pearl earrings. Um, earings of some semi-precious stone? Her birthstone perhaps?
