definitely go for something that means something to you both... I would not advise going for the typical jewellery/flowers or whatever... lovely as recieving soemthing like that is, for her 18th I think that it would be really nice if you instead of spenindg lots of money on her... spend lots of time and thought on what you get her.... even better make her something / get a personalised something... I don't know... (and please don't automatically think of a CD!!)

and don't worry lol all of of my friends with 18 year old partners didn't have a clue what to get them... and some of them were pretty serious... I guess it's probably because it's kinda big, and they worried about not getitng something goood enough I don't know

A beautiful but simple necklace that she will always wear and remember because a) you got it for her 18th and b) it was you who got it for her.

I got a necklace for my 18th, and it's the only one of it's kind, which is kinda special From rocklobster apparantly, the website can be found here: http://www.rocklobsterjewellery.com/. It's not ridiculously expensive, mine cost around £75, which isn't bad for a one off piece.

get her something personal. like, something related to a favourite band or something like that... what i mean is a present that is specific to your girlfriend's personality and interests.

Unless you can think of something in particular that she'd really like, always go for jewellery! Most people adore getting jewellery as a present, I know I do! Probably best to go for something silver or gold rather than costume jewellery - I got a lot of costume jewellery for my 18th which I loved, but I think silver or gold is more universally accepted as an 18th present. It doesn't need to be from an expensive jewellers', it just needs to look pretty and classy. Go for a nice necklace - matching earrings and maybe a bracelet are also always good. Or you could get her a charm bracelet and buy a couple of charms that are particularly significant - then every birthday or Christmas you can buy her another charm to add to the bracelet, making it a very personal and cute present!

something magical like a trip away somewhere, a weekend at a spa.

you might also consider something like a Hot air balloon ride, it needs to be something magical and special which will be treasured and a one off experience.

alternatively an item of jewlery which looks stunning but doesn't cost teh earth might be something. For one of my very close friends 18th i got a bittle of champagne, but had a custom label added to it which said happy 18th birthday ... ( i had exactly the same done for my mum's 40th birthday [as shown below])



what ever you do I'm sure she will appreciate it and will be grateful.

well this idea depends on how long you have been together.

iv been with my bf for three years and for his 18th im puttin together a scrap book full of pictures and bits.

u can buy leather scrap books for about 15-20 at craft shops, got mine from Hobbycraft. then u can get loadsa lil sticker things to put in it.

iv found loads of old pictures and tickets from days out, holiday tickets and all lil bits like that. anythign that is special to the both of you.

she can then add to it year after year and add more pages and keep it forever!!

My boyfriend gave me a beautiful Mont Blanc fountain pen as I love to write poetry and hand write my letters. It was the most thoughtful gift I've ever received.

a charm bracelet is also dead nice.

because you can add charms to it which mean something to the 2 of you, as well her being able to keep it forever!

look at the Thomas Sabo collection, its gorgeous.

flowers are always sweet as well.

go for the rule of 3...flowers, something you made like a cd or picture album and then something sparkly etc.!

It might help if you told us a bit about her - presents should be personal and women aren't generic!
