    :rofl: I'm assuming you were replying to my post about getting a laptop, but Sixbo posted in between saying he had a kid, and then I read your post - sounded like one day you decided to get a kid

    Was my 18th yesterday and I got some nice jewellery from my parents and grandmother. But my main present was a backpack and a few other bits for my trip this summer. But no, my parents didnt spend tons on me, though a lot more than 'usual' birthday spending is. Its not the presents that make the day special, its having your family and friends around you (thats what made my day yday so good!)

    I got a car from my parents, and a silver watch from an aunty. I can't wear the watch though, it's one of those kinetic powered ones and i don't move often enough, so it keeps stopping!

    Twas my 18th about 3 weeks ago and haven't yet had a present (off my parents) as I haven't thought of anything. Was thinking of either a new laptop or stereo system as they are both knackered, but they're probably easily fixed, so I don't really have a clue.

    Got a cool watch of my girlfriend (just as well she didn't ask what I wanted really, she'd still be waiting to find out).

    My parents got me a laptop to take to uni and it is great, really usefull and it is much better than the one I would have ended up with if I had, had to buy it myself.

    Need sum ideas because my mum asked what I would like I am thinking of asking for a laptop as this piece of crap is falling to pieces.... but its not very special for an 18th :confused:

    Cheers
    I got jewellery, I finally got my 6.5 carat cabischon double star sapphire (my family have a massive Sapphire mining business)

    and from my grandparents I got an 18 carat white gold 1 carat antique water topaz ring.

    Not at all a bad haul.

    from my folks I got access to my savings account (with just over £3k in it). Used it to pay for a holiday, a laptop and some other bits and pieces. In retrospect I wish i'd saved £1k or so of it though instead of blowing the lot.

    Good Lord. I don't remember getting anything special. I think the driving lessons for my 17th were much more expensive/useful/appreciated. Doubt my children when I have them will be getting anything in particular for their 18th either...

    ... =o oh my god this thread makes me feel like an orphan. I got 50 quid. However I do seem to be grossly irresponsible with money (I've spent over 1500 already this term), so fair enough.
