    My friend is turning 18 and I have no idea what to get her. Getting a bottle of something seems like an easy way out, but she's never been much of a drinker before so I don't know what she'd like (she's not anti-drinking, it's just not common for her because she doesn't really go to parties)

    What do you think the best one to get her is? Or do you think it would be worth getting something else entirely? I'm so bad at getting people birthday gifts

    I'd say if you dont know what drink she likes then get her something else.

    I'd say that if you want to get her any alcohol for her 18th, champagne might be a nice gift, because its often seen as a celebratory drink. However if you don't know what she'd like, you could always get someone to slyly ask, like if she's drank before, what did she like. I'd probably say to stay away from hard drinks like vodka or rum, and get something a bit fancy, like wine or something. Otherwise if anything, just find something else to get her that she'll like for sure - you could always get her something memorable like a teddy with 18 on it etc.

    I'd advise something sweet and fruity so Midori or passoa would be the best bets other than that I'd say demi-sec champagne or a sweet white wine like a muscat or sauternes
