Exclamation Brother turning 18 tommorow, help! - February 20th 2009, 02:31 PM

So my brother is turning the big 18 tomorrow and I totally forgot! I want to get him something really special but he refuses to say what he wants, he's just like "surprise me". So i was think of maybe the usual like clothes or something but I want to make something or get something really original as you only turn 18 once! It's also his last few months at home as he is moving away to study.. so ahhh i'm really stuck! I have a budget as i'm only 16 with a sucky part time job so i was thinking maybe 50 max.. i'm buying with my sister who is putting in about 20. Please help! x


Remember those walls I built?
Well baby they're tumbling down...
and they didn't even put up a fight,
they didn't even make a sound...

Maybe buy him a watch? I usually like to buy people something they can keep for special birthdays.




Live on love.

an item of jewellery like a necklace with a special message? Or you could make a CD of his favourite music for him to listen to. You could even buy him clohes and customise them a little if your the artsy type

Thanks for your really quick replies! I like the engraved jewellery idea! Hadn't thought of a watch either. :] x

You could get him an engraved watch. I knew someone who did that once. They put a message inside that only they knew the meaning of. It was really sweet.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Hey guys thankyou all for your replies. I got him a few bits and pieces and then as the "touchy" bit of the present I got him one of those 5 places photo frame with pictures of our family in it and a poem about turning 18 and being legal I wrote myself. :] This can be closed if wanted.
