One of the most important milestones in a person’s life is when one turns 18. And, to celebrate this important birthday, you have to come up with a unique 18th birthday gift for your loved one. When choosing a birthday present for an 18-year-old, it is important that you choose age-appropriate gift. You should also ensure that the gift is suitable for a male or female, depending on the sex of the recipient. It is also important to consider the interests and personality of the recipient when finding the right gift. Following are some great gift ideas for an 18-year-old:
- In most countries, 18 is considered a legal age. It would be nice and helpful to give a ‘Welcome to Adulthood’ gift such as a book that includes tips and advises to enjoy adult life. You can also include vanity kits to give the recipient an idea of what to keep on their personal essentials.
- 18 is also the age of exploration, curiosity and enjoyment. You can be of great help to a person turning 18 by treating him/her to a spa, makeup for the girls, and gym for the boys. These places are considered a good hangout for 18-year-olds – pure fun and enjoyment.
- Another fun and unique gift for someone who lives in a dormitory or apartment is a garden kit, which includes small colorful pots that can be easily placed on a table, floor or windowsill. This is the perfect eco-friendly gift for someone who prefers green gifts over other types of gifts.
- For girls who love particular music artist or singer or whoever, you can give them their idols paper doll complete with their whacky costumes and outfits. This may seem childish to some people so make sure that the recipient is really a huge fan of the artist.
- When you turn 18, you will surely get invited to different events such as concerts, fund raisings and parties. This is why a ticket stub diary can also be a great gift especially for someone who has a very active social life. They can keep their tickets in this diary so that they will not forget these special events in their college life.
- You can also give a framed photo with fun effects like Andy Warhol effect or Leonardo pop art style. You can get the picture from the recipient or you can check your own photo albums if you have a photo of the recipient that you can use for this purpose.
- The mustache design is very popular these days. You can join the bandwagon by giving mustache themed gifts such as a mug printed with mustache, mustache rings and necklaces, or mustache vinyl decals.
Finding a perfect gift for an 18-year old has never been this fun! You can use these unique 18th birthday gift ideas or you can come up with your own. Remember that there is no right or wrong gift as long as the gift is well thought out and comes from the heart.
