This is a special age: 18 years is boundary between childhood and adolescence. This is especially true for girls. Once they reach majority age, they become adults literally overnight. They feel some kind of independence and responsibility. On the one hand, a gift for 18th birthday for teenage girl should be useful and underline her maturity; and on the other hand, it should be pleasant to show her that childhood is still there.
18th Birthday Gifts For Girlfriend From Boyfriend
Many modern girls of 18 years already have serious relationship. Or there is a guy who likes her, cares for her and gives her gifts even on regular days. And, of course, he wants to give his girlfriend something special on her birthday. This will make him stand out the rest of her friends and peers.
* A huge teddy bear. No matter how serious and modest an 18 years old girl looks, she is still a child at heart and will be glad to a gift like that. It can be a white or a brown bear, but not a pink one. Pink is considered bad taste here.
* Perfume. This gift will make her understand that you treat her like a real woman. The main thing is to choose the right fragrance. It is better not to experiment, and buy the same perfume, which she uses daily. The bottle should not be too big because perfumes are easy to get bored of. It is better to add a bouquet of flowers as well.
*Jewelry. You should only give jewelry to 18 years old girl if you have a serious relationship with her. Otherwise, it will make her feel obliged, and she may not be ready for that. Fashion jewelry is fine, but it is hard to please a young girl’s taste. If you are sure you have found the bracelet or earrings of her dreams, and then go for it!
* Phone, Tablet, E-Book. Such a serious gift will show how serious, attentive and caring the guy is. She will see that he chose the gift responsively and even remembered that she just broke her tablet. And it’s also quite an unusual approach, because most girls expect their boyfriends will give them flowers, candy, toys and perfumes.
* Cozy pajamas, bathrobe or a warm blanket. It will brighten your evenings when you’re not around. Girls love all things soft and fluffy to the touch, so she would be happy to sleep in pajamas you gave her, wrap up in a bathrobe after a shower and review your couple photos, covered with a blanket.
A guy should never give the girl something that will hint at the negative aspects. Anti acne lotion, anti dandruff shampoo, or “How to Lose Weight in 11 Days” book – these are all are bad gifts.
