Any ideas for Daniel, he's 18 in JUly, he doesn't know what he'd like, he doesn't wear a watch. He's hopefully off to university in September. Boys are so hard to buy for :thumbsdown:


Any ideas for a family party would be gratefully recieved too :happybounce:

Whew. Anything that might be useful for his next stage in life? Electronic equipment? Upgrading what he currently has? Special event he'd like to attend? Tickets for that event?

Family party? Hmmm...what have you done in the past? I'm pretty hopeless at party planning. My idea of a party is fabulous food, nice wine and a pool. :lol:

iPod Nano (http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/ipod_nano) and a watch band strap (http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_ipod/ipod_accessories/cases) for it. :unsure:

That way he can have his tunes AND a watch.

Tom (:macwave:... just sayin...)

I'm going for all that *stuff* and then a great watch anyway (or pen set or SOMETHING).

At 18 I didn't care much about sentimental bits and pieces. I'm a bit older now and those special items are incredibly cherished and valuable to me. We were talking about this only the other day in work and several other people said the same.

i was thinking maybe a St Christopher necklace, to keep him safe on his travels:unsure:

and maybe some shares/lump sum in the bank that he can't fritter away until he's finished University.

But he won't be able to pull the horse trailer for his pony if I buy him a Ferrari!

Ipad/iphone etc all great because you can get them engraved at time of purchase but bad because technology doesn't last :( I think an 18th pressie needs to be able to be saved and looked at 40 yrs down the line

I agree Keith, Caitlin will be easy, she already wants a necklace from Tiffany's!



If I do get the st Christopher I want to get it engraved, any ideas on what to write?


I await Dawn's essay :tongue:

right just ordered, we've put amor parentis absolutus est on the St Christopher and as he is a Liverpool supporter we have also put YNWA (you'll never walk alone)
