I have two Step D's who are 18 & 22 and am struggling to think of what to buy them. We usually buy toiletries, jewellery, perfume etc. I am interested to know what others buy their Children who are young adults and how much you spend.

My step S, 23, has been dropping hints about a new iphone, so would phone/computer items go down well? And of course CDs/DVDs/computer games...

Alternately, vouchers linked to a small present, to make them more interesting and fun to unwrap ie Blockbuster vouchers wrapped up with chocolate/popcorn/wine, or shopping vouchers with a wallet/bag.
Hope that helps!
