Hi everyone, I am looking for inspiration!!!! ph34r.gif

Our nephew will be 18 next month but he is a kid who has had a very privelaged life, private schools, new car for Christmas etc etc etc blink.gif unsure.gif

We of course are the poor side of the family sad.gif tongue.gif so I am at a bit of a loss.

When I was 18 (many moons ago), a friend gave me a large card with 18 "essential" items in eg a needle and thread, a penny for the toilets, a plaster. rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif

I was wondering if I could do something like this, but an 18 year old these days has a very different outlook on life.

So for all of you out there could I have your thoughts and help huh.gif unsure.gif

Thanks

Caroline

I know from experience $$money$$ in a birthday card.
That way you don't waste yours buying something they don't want or like.
Works every time and everyone is happy. biggrin.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif

huh.gif A hard ask, Caroline . . . . ! Definitely things have changed since we were 18 !!

Does he have a hobby or collect anything?

Are you arty or crafty and can make him something so it's special to him?

Otherwise, a very difficult ask !! What about a interactive DVD game? cool.gif

I had a thought yesterday, what if I make something like a book with things that have happened on his birthday every year since he was born.

Then of course I would need to know how to access archives - does anyone know if Newspapers have this facility on the web????
