I'm eighteen in August and family keeps pestering me as to what I want for presents for it. It's sort of annoying, you're meant to get something special when you're eighteen but I have absolutely no idea what I want (barring a car, which no one will want to get for me!)

Same and same, however I won't need a car that close to uni. Completely random place to post this though!!

I got a camera, my party and a bracelet they bought for me when I was a baby.

The camera is a nice generic idea. Or maybe they could buy you a photo-shoot makeover session with friends. Um... then there's the obvious clothes, jewellery, perfume etc. Completely thinking of random things now... a scrapbook to document your time at uni? A weekend break somewhere with a friend?

It's pretty hard to judge what you would want. Depends a lot on the budget as well obviously. Sort of covered all angles with my suggestions...

I'm not 18 yet but I know what I'm getting:
a) a trip to Stonehenge, Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, Uffington White Horse, Wayland's Smithy and some other places. That's my actual birthday celebration. (I don't drink.)
b) 20-something days this summer in Africa and all the kit I need (including a camera). 4 days trekking in Zambia, 8 days building mud houses in Zambia, 2 day at Victoria Falls in Zambia, 4 days on safari in Botswana and the rest of the days are made up of travelling and time spent in Lusaka.
and c) driving lessons.
Although b and c are xmas/birthday combined presents. B is actually the past two Xmas, my 17th and probably every Xmas and birthday up until I'm 21.

If I wasn't getting that I would probably ask for things I would need for uni, some spending money (hopefully in the form of Waterstones vouchers... yes I'm sad) and a trip away with my friends. Although I did go to London with my friends for my 17th.... Damn I'm spoilt :rolleyes:

Ho hum... ideas? Ummm... camera? Laptop? Driving lessons unless you've already had them? Trip away with friends? Jewellery?

I got a nice watch (as in, a £70ish one, not a ridiculously expensive one or anything, but more than I'd choose to spend myself on a watch), and my parents paid for most of my laptop. They also paid for drinks and food to have a sleepover at my house with about ten of my friends.

This year, I got a load of stuff for uni. I'm on a gap year though, so had I gone to uni when my friends did, I probably would have asked for these things for my 18th, and just asked for one slightly bigger present. So I got things like expensive books I'll need, cooking equipment, room decorations etc.

It sucks turning 18 with regards to presents. It's a landmark birthday, so people want to get you something special, but most things you want that aren't ridiculously OTT you can buy yourself if you have a job.

Half a dozen STIs and a hooker, guess which order I got them in. Seriosuly though, I can't remember, might have been just some money I think, couldn't think of anything that I wanted.
