What did you get (or what do you HOPE to get) as an 18th birthday present? Watch
Mine is too
made into a diamond necklace... one for me and one for my sister
that was nice
annd my dad got me a nice watch
my bf got a £750 watch off his parents
and £3000 off his grandparents :O
Then dad came. I got 10 silver dollars and an Irish walking stick. I thought to myself, "The silver is awesome, but WTF am I going to do with a cane? It 'supposedly' is a traditional gift for a young man in Ireland (we're Irish descended). But I turned 18, not 80."
My grandparents sent some money ($50 US). They were wintering in Florida. They normally live in New York, but each year miss my birthday.
I suppose Christmas was a make-up. I received a musket that cost $500 US. I then spent another $125 on gun powder, musket balls, and miscellaneous accessories for shooting. When I bring that to the range...boy does it turn heads.
But my God....I am a little jealous of those of you who got $2000 or more (I am doing the currency conversions).
Although, my grandfather does let me play with money he gave me at birth...
Got 200GBP off by uncle & 100 GBP off my brother
My sisters and I had a great birthday because it had snowed so hard the night before that the local schools were all closed!
My parents also got me a Radley purse and the Jungle Book Special Edition DVD.
My sister & brother in law got me this gorgeous necklace and watch.
I was so happy with my presents! I didn't get any money cos all my other family live in South Africa but tbh I hate getting money cos I never know what to do with it.
I hope I get a nice piece of Jewellery from someone, or some nice perfume.
But some people at my college got ridiculous amounts for their 18th. One girl got;
- Brand new black mini - she hasn't even passed her theory test even though she's taken it 6 times
- £5000 of Tiffany's Jewellery
- £1000 of Burberry clothing
- Designer handbag (I forget which)
- £10,000 cash
- Birthday party at a really cool club - with £1000 tab behind the bar
I also know another guy who got £100,000 for his 21st ;___;
gold ring and necklace from grandma
gold kara and bangles from nani and nanaji (mums mum and dad)
a new ipod (which i've lost now )
