21st present ideas please (Female)
« on: May 14, 2012, 02:46:11 pm »
Help!! My son's beautiful lady is turning 21 this week and I have no idea what to get her ... buying for girls/ladies hasn't been high on my priorities for the past 21 years lol (I fuss make that 16 before DD arrived!!)

They have been dating for just over 12 months and it seems to be a serious relationship. We love her to bits so would be grateful of some suggestions.

p.s. she has been no help to anyone for suggestions lol  :-)) :-))

You can't go wrong with jewellery Kathryn.  Either a nice bracelet, necklace or earrings.  Check to see if she wears silver or gold and select accordingly.

I did think of a pandora JD and was hoping DS might get her one and I could get her a nice charm or 2 ... seems he has seen another bracelet that he likes but needs to get her to try it on as she is sooo petite.

Might need to talk him into a pandora lol  :D

Not very girly Kathryn but I got a Swiss army knife and a picnic blanket as some of my 21st gifts that I still have today.

I received a beautiful jewelery box for my 21st that I still have.  Another present which I used alot was a leather overnight bag.  Other ideas photo frames (digital??), nice clutch purse for evenings.  Does she have any hobbies?

Meagan  swiss army knife it a great  present. I was given one years ago and still have it but maybe not for a 21st.

I like the idea of jewellery but a jewellery box is a really wonderful idea as it is something to treasure  everyday and a promise of things to come, however they can be very expensive.

I hate Pandora. I like the Swarovski crystal . It could be the beginning of a collection for her.  They have a champagne bottle,  grand piano, shoes, etc. Eventually there  is a baby bottle, dummy, well you get the idea.


Let us know what you decide.

Oh my goodness I take that back. I was just looking at the  Swarovski crystal figurines and the prices are now astro.  Beautiful but  yikes. Stick with some simple jewellery.  I am gobsmacked .

A thermomix LOL.

The jewellery box is a good idea. You can get nice silver ones and have it engraved.

How about a voucher for a pedicure, manicure, facial or body massage (or all of them to really spoil her), a clothes voucher on her favourite store or a nice watch. If she is sporty, a voucher on a sport's store perhaps and of course, the mandatory flowers to go with the voucher.
