Does anyone have any ideas for a bday present for a 19 yo, works full time, left home last year and has since returned. Lives with mum.

Im not sure what the norm is, these days...or is it just a card (as its not 18 or 21!)

If its not someone really close, iTunes or Amazong vouchers/card is usually appreciated! With a nice card.

If you don't want to do vouchers, try dvds or something like a T-shirt. TKMaxx do relatively affordable designer t-shirts. Or aftershave (can be expensive though). What is he interested in? You could get something sport related, for example.

I think as it is your dh's son he should get some sort of a present hmm. I'm 49 and my mum still buys me a token grin.

Think it will be a good (brand) tee shirt shopping tomorrow!

Thank you for the ideas all...

Might be an idea to consider a ten quid Amazon gift card as well, if poss, so even if the T-shirt is of mild interest, the gift can go towards a personally chosen item in any category available (and they seem to cater for most tastes).

If he goes to the cinema could give him a gift card with money on for a couple of screenings and popcorn maybe? Well if they do them our local one does.

Usually get a update a week or so down the line that they went to see x film and it was 'bloody awesome'

Krispy kreme donuts do gift vouchers. I'd love one of those! Also all the coffee places.
I agree though with tk maxx as being great for designer stuff.
They do nice pants, wallets, belts etc too.

Some money in a card saying 'beer vouchers'?
