Any ideas for DGS please? I want to give him an actual present as well as money. He is very excitedly anticipating his first vote as his birthday is in early June. He likes clothes as presents, loves music but but I've no idea which music. Very keen on the theatre and some films.
I'll get him a huge tub of flying saucers I think! He's the GC who has given me carefully chosen presents from holidays - a wooden buddha, a glass dolphin.

My sister has done photo-books for both her grandaughters' 18th birthday and they loved them. We did them on the computer at home and added funny captions to each picture. It only took us about 2 hours to complete and the book arrived in a few days. Really good quality too.

I bought my DGS a record player for his 18th. He was thrilled with it. I too wanted to give a present to keep rather than money

Gave my GD a day as a zoo keeper at London Zoo and a trip on an archeological dig - somethings that interested her.
