I bought mine a shotgun for his, but hey it may not be for everyone.
Does he like music, how about a nano ipod. amazing music and videos.
A new mobile phone, flashy one.
A new laptop
Does he have any hobbies? perhaps something related to one of those.
If all else fails just do what I do, put a couple of hundred quid in a card and say happy birthday.
Good luck

I think driving lessons are a good idea.

Ooh Lynn, they're not easy at that age. I remember what our Jamie was like. I think the driving lessons are an excellent idea as you need this ability in Cyprus so it doubles up as a practical present. We took Jamie skiing on his 18th but we were in the UK and the Alps were just a bunny hopper away. Not so easy in Cyprus tho' is it? Nah...stick with the driving....but next he'll want a car for his 21st!!! :lol:

You can get credit /email gift vouchers put on Amazon which you pay for then get it emailed to the birthday recipients email address, which then tells them They have 'n' number of pounds to spend freely with Amazon. Amazon sells so much nowadays inc clothes and shoes. My eldest has asked for this more than once since being a teenager and at 30yrs old has just asked again for Christmas! Might seem a copout but he loves doing it as he picks all he wants online. I also sent him a huge tin of Cadburys Roses to make himself sick with while ordering!

How about one of those vouchers to do something exciting for the day like 1.Having a pilots lesson for light aircraft. 2 Balloon trip. You will have seen the sort of thing and may be something different. The driving lessons would be an excellent choice I think. Or what about a trip for the weekend for him and a pal. Tickets to a Pop concert of football match that he would enjoy plus some cash?

Wow everyone, thank you for all the ideas, all are excellent. Just got to ask him now and hope he chooses one, will let you know the outcome. Thanks :D :D

I think the Driving lessons When our Daughter was 17 , i had applied for her provisanol licence to start on the day of her Birthday, Also Booked Her a Driving lesson for that day ...Bought one of those cards that you do your own message , so when she opened it wished her happy Birthday and told her , part of her pressie would be outside at 11 am a lesson you could do the same for His 18 th Then like Tina says they wont a car ...........buy him a Bike (pedal) :lol: Dawn

Hi Dawn Thanks, yes he would like the driving lessons as it is something that he would never pay for himself, there would always be something else that he wanted more urgently. As for the car - do they still make those cars with pedals - the ones for toddlers :lol: Thanks Lynne
