Hi all!

I am looking for some inspiration for gift ideas for my 18 year old son. He has a very well paid job and buys himself everything he wants and needs. I think I will get an experience for his main present but am looking for ideas on what I could get for him to open. He has a car but hasn't passed his test yet (on 31st Oct). He works long days, commutes in to the city, so doesn't have any hobbies. He does like socialising with friends on the weekend but other than that he is at home on his computer. Any one got any ideas?

Weekend away somewhere? You could maybe involve a friend then you could wrap some silly things for him to guess. For my sisters 18th she unwrapped a beach towel, some sunglasses then a bucket and spade with tickets in.

Open up a bank savings account

Money towards car insurance for when he passes test? (It's cripplingly expensive at their age).
