18th got some jewellery, and 21st going to get some money towards travelling for after Uni

I can never think of what presents i want Though i agree with those who have said get something they *will* like, nothing worse than getting a 'standard' present, it's the thought that counts

Over the past few years, I just can't think of what I want for these birthday and Christmas', and so for my 18th and special occasions since, instead of presents, got a hell of a lot of money, along with the usual bits and bobs. And using given money, I have purchases things such as Digi cams, PSPs, holidays, XBox360, etc, etc...

And can't answer the 21st birthday one, as I have 9 months to go till that...

18th - My brother got money towards PPL (Private Pilot License) and I got a car.
21st - My brother is getting a Breitling watch. I'll get a watch too, haven't decided where from though

I always think jewellery is nice, or a watch, or something fairly sentimental for 18th/21st. Something they'll keep forever.

I think I got a coat for my 18th. My dad gave me £1000 for reaching 18 without starting smoking, though.

18th - a cello (because before then I'd only ever used a school one, and I needed one of my own for once I'd left school).

21st - a digital camera

I would say an experience, such as maybe a fun spa day, helicopter flight, or trip is always more memorable than something like jewlery because you put more thought into it!

Nothing... I was at boarding school for my 18th birthday... and presents are stopping this year for christmases too. I never got much after about 10 though, just stuff I needed like a new coat. My 14th birthday and christmas present was a laptop though, since i was about to go to school.

My parents got me a new TV for my 21st. Everything else was either in the form of money, champagne or those keys in a box.

Oh, and someone got me an umbrella.
