most people will want cash, it sounds rude to ask for it. but deep down that's what they want... they can save it that way too.
Most girls like champagne and glasses when they turn eighteen - but make sure it is legal in your area first. Music is great if you don't know the person that well. If you don't have much money, you can always make your own CD for them. Photos on a CD or a book like the ones at shutterfly give a great personal touch.
you can now get ipods with engravings in them for free if yo uorder them online , my sister loved it for her 18th
My Daughter LOVED her day spa voucher,Hair,Nails,Toes,Massage,Makeup,Champagne Lunch and a limo to dinner (surprise guests included interstate rellies) Plus we got her a diamond belly ring.. She loved it.
Something to put in her glory box, most 18yr olds have moved or are thinking about moving out of home, hopefully they would have started a glory box (A chest to put stuff in for when you move out i.e Linen, electric appliances, cutlery, tupperware). Or money, every 18 yr old girl loves money, just don't give it too her before she's about to go to the pub for the first time.
BRA IS THE BEST CHOICE A girl who turns 18 needs a sexy bra
Jewelry is a MUST, whether it's glitzy bling bling rings or chunky bracelets, they always add instant cool (er, that is, if it matches the outfit!). Nail varnish is great too. This summer, coral is THE colour to be seen wearing, and it can be in nail varnish, clothes and even makeup!
im going to be 18 i think it is a good thing to get them some thing they like and will have for a long time like ring , nicks, teddy bears i love teddy bear
I'm stuck... I am about to turn 18 in a couple of months and I'm afraid I'm not the most 'girly' girl going. I HATE the colour pink and green. I dont wear a lot of makeup, I have lots of great clothes, I got a stack of clothes for christmas. I already get a lot of the cds I want because I buy them. I don't wear a lot of jewellery, I don't want something that will be gone once you've used it. I got a new phone on a plan a month ago, I already have an ipod like appliance, I don't have a glory box and I don't really wan't to start one for my 18th...
WHAT IS THERE LEFT I COULD GET FOR MY BIRTHDAY?
Any help is appreciated, I have to think of a gift my mum and dad could get me as well as one from my long term boyfriend...
I agree with Amelia, everything you just said is true about me as well. So what else is there go get?
USe the English language properly...... it's "rite of passage" not "right of passage.
Most 18-year-olds are college-bound and moving on/near campus, so maybe something that will decorate the walls of her dorm, apartment, etc. that she will remember you by.

cash cash cash or a car lol
Take a beauiful photo of her and Frame.................and give ...
Like I would Tell You
ummmm anything but what's on this website, who buys people BRA STRAPS for an 18th?????
A voucher for a paid romantic meal for 2 (her and boyfriend if she has one)!
concert tickets for a band
My daughter wants to sky dive... which scares me somewhat... but its what she has wanted since she was little, and she has never waivered from the idea... so that is what she is getting... she's a girly tomboy ;)
Keepsakes ALWAYS make the best 18th (and 21st) birthday pressies.
My brother recieved a sterling silver guitar pick with his name engraved in it, he loved it. Anyone who plays guitar would apriciate this gift.
A charm braclet was the best thing I recieved for my 18th. My sister got me the braclet with a couple of charms already on, and she filled my family and friends in on what she had bought, so everyone else who was stuck for ideas also bought me a charm which resembled me. E.G, a mobile phone charm, a horse charm because I love riding, an 18 key charm. This is also a great idea as for milestone birthdays to come, like a 21st, you could buy her a 21st charm to add to it!
a blackberry wood b wondaful n mayb a trip to da barhamas n gucci high heels...well i wood love a day at da spa n a day ful ov pamperin n to finaliz da day a nite clubin wiv ma fwends!!!
i was thinking like a pocket mirror, cuz shes like a girly girl and always lookin n the mirror. i also wanted to get her a bag, cuz what girl doesnt want a new bag or tote?!lol
A "basket of fun" is always a great way to go! You just get a cute basket and fill it with random fun stuff like their favorite magazine, book, makeup, giftcards, nailpolish, etc...it's just always fun
I think you should go on a fun vaction with a group of your friends, because I am planing on going with my friend in about 3 years from now and we are maybe planing on going to Hawaii or DisneyLand FYI( for your information) both of those places are so much fun I have a 6 year old sister and we wen't to DisneyLand for her 6th birthday and when we had to leave (hahaha lol) beacuse her boyfriend lived there and she did not to leave at all.:)
Laria im pretty sure most people know what fyi means and please use proper english if your going to speak it "and when we had to leave(hahaha lol) because her boyfriend lived there and she did not to leave at all." This is not proper
Buttercup, if YOU'RE going to insult someone's English, at least spell the words correctly
Yes... Buttercuup, when you're using the word "I'm" make sure to capitalize the "I" AND put an apostrophe there. ALSO, "your". Are you seriously going to correct someone else's grammar on this website by using the wrong form? ARE YOU 3?!?! I'm not one to correct people's grammar, but if you're going to call someone out, you've GOT to know English yourself...
I am goin to be 18 in 5 weeks and people keep asking what i want... but i dont know what! lol. i would <3 a car but i know it wont happen. i would like something to keep safe and cherish and pass on to my children when i am older and they are 18 themselves. i have hinted to my mum about goin to Adam ants new tour but she doesnt like him so wont take me :( oh well.... i will just have to wait for the suprise! x
Ok im stuck just reading everything, my daughter has her own car we got her personalized plates for her 16th, she has just bought her i phone, Shes unsure of what direction she wants in life,(work wise), she has done a dipolma in makeup,shes happy with her jewllery, my husband is in Europe and we have asked her many times what she would like for her 18 th in 3 months and her answer is " something cool" well please tell me what to buy a girl that has everything ? she cant wait as she works 2 jobs and buys everything her self,..HELP ME PLEASE
I'm turning 18 soon and I am so torn on what to ask for, however, I have come to the conclusion I'm going to insist on no presents and I'm saving up for a beautiful 24ct gold necklace that I've had my eyes on since I was 16 or so!
Omg so many critics I love it! Pathetic!!!! Ahahah!!!!
so many sad people on this site, OMGAWD GRAMMAR CUM @ MEH BRO
I have no idea what to get my friend.. I am screwed!!
i hab be bestest grammar in the whuuurlldddd!!! mwahahahahahaha! akxbslvcilsgcuawvx :)
Wat is this grammer u speek of
Yes everyone wants presents on their birthday, including me, but i'm just reading some peoples comments and we're all sounding really materialistic. What happend to "the best things in life are free"? Do something special for the birthday boy/girl rather than buy them something. Or maybe make them something or take them somewhere. I don't know just something is wrong here to me. (P.S. If anyone feels the need to correct my grammar...seriously get a life!)
a personalised name necklace, or initial jewellery too
Maybe a nice writing set. I know it may sound old fashioned but it's a cute way to stay in touch with a good friend :)
When I turned 18 I asked for a big photo frame that fits about 20 photos in it to hang in my room. It's great, because I've got pictures of holidays, parties, any memories I want to see up on my wall. It a great present, because the birthday girl can choose the photos, and might even be able to decorate the frame (depending on what it's made of how creative she is)
That is so lame. I am a teenager and I can tell you those ideas are sooo out-dated and DORKKKYYY!!!
"A sweater, polo knit, footless tights, t shirt, stretchy sports pants or top, padded jacket, vest "
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

i am nothing idea
I turned 18 a few months ago and from friends and extended family I was given a charm bracelet, CDs, a jewellery tree, a few nice cook books, other jewellery, photo frames, a beautiful tea and saucer set and a beautiful book on fashion with stunning pictures...
I hope this helps :)
Great idea Mads I like that! Thank you!
Pandora bracelet is always nice or if they already have one the charms for it
a fun thing that i've done for my friends who have turned 18 is to get 18 boxes, each one a bit larger than the other. You put a few cute things in each box and then either stack them up on top of eachother or you can put a box ix a box ina box...etc. In the largest box, you put something like candy, or random toys you can find at a dollar store, then in other boxes you can put: sunglasses, frisbee (if they like the park/athletic activities), pool toys, under wear, itunes gift cars, pictures of you and them, condoms/pregnancy test-as a joke, ramen noodles-its a joke we all have because when you go to college you are on a low budget so we always say we'll only be eating ramen noodles till we graduate, a cupcake-usually put this in the 2nd smallest box-make sure they dont shake it around, and in the smallest box you put in $18 and maybe a cute pic of them as a kid and another one as a young adult.

I gave my daughter a trip to the bars in mexico, in hopes of her being abducted by those disgusting animals that live next to US! So I could use her college fund to buy a boat.
I'm turning 18 in two weeks time, and I have asked for a designer watch - like guess or dolce and gabbana. It's something I can keep for a long time and won't necessarily go out of fashion.
Travel vouchers are also a good idea, as many 18yo's like to go on trips once they graduate from school etc.
A night in a fancy hotel in the nearest city is a lovely idea too. My Mum is giving me two tickets to a musical, dinner paid for and a night in Melbourne for my 18th.
I already have a car so this was off my list, but my Mum is also starting a glory box for me - with towels, sheets, kitchenware etc for when i move out of home.
Just some ideas and thoughts :)
I gave my daughter a dildo as all 18 year olds if not ALL girls need some pleasure
is give her my heart... but she's not my girl :(
is give her my heart... but she's not my girl :(
A suitcase for her to use in the future. For travelling or just moving out!
actually m confused!
ok...let me think

We probably dont realise the beauty of growing up in tune with our age: 18 is coming of age a time between the innocence of childhood and getting into the mysterious but agonisingly tempting youth-adulthood
My wish list for my daughter who becomes 18 a week ahead:
1. A personalised (self made) card - putting in all the stories of her childhood till date - with some pictures of her we (me and my wife) cherish - as many pages you like - make it a book if you want
2. A birthday cake with her favourite characters including Poo - she loves Poo and Barbie, the Powerpuff girls etc
3. Teddy Bear - she loves them; we thought of giving her a per Lhasa Apso - but realise she would leave him behind for us as she goes to college
4. A mobile phone to keep in touch with a good music paly mechanism (as she loves music)
5. A Gold Key Pendent with 18 and a heart on it (heart on top of key with 18 towards the end of the key) - my wife feels we should rather give this at 21
6. A make up kit with as much of colours to describe the colourful life ahead
7. A specially designed terracotta (feeling of earthiness) Gandhi 3 monkeys - sitting back to each other on a 'wheel of truth' telling her life begins for you now - dont forget - hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil
8. A book by her favourite author or probably a Linda GOldman book on sun signs
9. A classical music CD - she loves music
10. A dinner to a stylish restaurant with the family
11. A Poloroid pair of sunglasses
12. A Cross Pen
13. A set of bamboo stems for good Luck as per Feng Shui
14. A Bank account with her own ATM / debit card with fixed (agreed) monthly allowance credited every month (no questions asked)
15. A music mixer CD / software to synch her mike with karaoke system to create her own CDs
16. A yoga / gym membership / CD for her to do-it-herself
17. Her first clutch bag
18. Her first Credit Card (with limits set for purchase)
First of all no no no!! Why bra straps? Give her something that she will remember!! Throw a surprise party for her!! After all you only have one 18th birthday party in your life!!
I don't get why people care about grammar on here when we know what each of us are talking about. Its not like its confusing and its impossible to understand.
~i asked for Wen shampoo and conditioner (LOVE that stuff)

Hi. My name is arketa and, i will be turning 16 years old on september 19th 2013. And i do not know what to get for my 16th birthday. I need help on this please!!!!!!!!!!
Just saying, bras are a terrible gift, do not give lingerie EVER, that's just plain weird, i'm turning 18 and that'd just be awkward, we buy our own underwear, thanks, if you really feel the need for this, do a gift card to la senza or give cash
My sister gave her teen granddaughter a 2-month membership in an indoor Rock Climbing Gym - includes free guest once/month!!! Great idea - she loved it!!!
I gave my Jamie-girl a sterling silver Tiffany diamond key with sterling chain -- so she knew she has the key to my heart. She seemed to be thrilled with it. I also gave her
a Tiffany jewelry case for traveling--she took that back to the store - hmmm, forgot
to ask what she got instead!!
a constitution of india so that she knows her rights and duties
