Lasting memories for milestone birthdays...

When we turn 18 what are most people’s first thoughts? That they’re finally a fully-fledged adult and it’s time to buckle down, get a job and become a serious individual? No, definitely not.

Drinking, sensibly, of course, is on the agenda for most so, while enjoying the odd beverage is still a novelty, a personalised bottle of their favourite sauce makes for a great celebratory birthday gift. If a nice beer gets their taste buds tingling then we have Personalised Beer for a fun 18th birthday gift, with labels waiting to have their name and a message printed on them.

Perhaps they are a wine connoisseur and love to knock back a good red, white or rosé of an evening? Then give them something to sip stylishly from in the form of one of our personalised wine glasses. There’s something to suit all tastes, not forgetting, of course, everyone’s favourite liquid export from that region of France… Champagne!

For the girls, you can mark their 18th birthday with a piece of jewellery engraved with a personal message. Our Engraved Heart Pendant or Engraved Toggle Necklace will be sure to make them feel very special and can be something they can take anywhere with them as a reminder.

Perhaps they like to be pampered, in which case, why not opt for an experience day? Afternoon Tea with Bubbly for Two, a Health Club Day Pass for Two or even a London Eye and Lunch Cruise would certainly be something meaningful for her to share with a loved one. Or if you’re looking for something simpler, our Retro Sweet Jars come packed with delicious treats and a label ready to be personalised with a name and message. As do our creamy chocolate bars.

And for an 18th birthday gift idea for boys, how about an adrenaline-fuelled day out Dumper Racing for Two, a Segway Rally Race Experience, or European Supercar Challenge to welcome in his adult years? Make his wish come true, of signing for his beloved football team, when you personalise a magazine cover, with his name realistically incorporated into the headlines.

For the fashion-conscious type, you can make him feel sharp for potential interviews or university shindigs with a pair of his very own cufflinks personalised with his name, initials or a meaningful date.

A great selection of wonderful keepsakes and gifts that will be sure to remind that special someone of an important time, GettingPersonal are on-hand to make any 18th birthday unforgettable…
