I got cup, a key, a huge wine glass, a keyring all with 21 on.

Also got money, jewellery, perfume, flowers.

It was only last year but can't remember what else!

Think a few bottles of alcohol too.

Was going to suggest a Tiffany key - think that's what we might get dd1 for her 18th (need to start saving up!). If jewellery is out, how about a 'good' leather bag?

My uncle bought me a travel bag for my 18th, many years ago. I used it for at least 10 years - great idea.

hmm travel something is a good idea

I can't remember. Money maybe.

DD1 got a watch last year. A seriously good one. It's a family tradition. But I suppose that's jewellery. hmm

We bought my Dd a Mac laptop. That's what she wanted! Actually we bought half and my parents bought the other half. She was very pleased.

Hmm..not got one of 21 yet but DD got a Pandora bracelet for her 18th so we were thinking of adding charms.

ggirl Sun 14-Oct-12 20:28:15

watch would be nice..but she's afraid of losing it

I'm having this dilemma too. We got dd1 a main present of a necklace for her 18th. Unfortunately dd2 is 18 the same week as dd1 is 21 so money is going to be tight. We have a savings account for her so I suppose this would be a good as time as any to hand it over to her but want something for her to keep as well.

Actually a ring's not a bad idea..... It could match the necklace....

I got a party <feels like Neil from Inbetweeners>

I got a flute for my 21st.

Really should dig it out more often. I bet I can only remember how to play scales and Christmas carols.

DD1 got a Tiffany necklace and bracelet and DS got an old fashioned record player ( he is very retro!!!). Both were given their savings book started when they were born.

DD2 will be lucky to see her 21st as she is driving me nuts, probably buy her a tent to encourage her to move out wink
