"Premium bonds are a nice idea but you might as…"
Premium bonds are a nice idea but you might as well just hand over some cash. Unless you are going to invest a considerable sum, the chances of 'winning' and therefore getting any return on the money is very low. It would be a much wiser invstment to put some money into an account which will gain interest, however little as over 18 year this will add up. Even better, ask the parents which trust fund they will be setting up to make use of the government voucher and add to that instead!Read moreLess
