18th birthday gift ideas for my sister
Keep your sister's likes and interests in mind when deciding on a gift. (gift box. Christmas gift/present image by L. Shat from Fotolia.com)

Turning 18 is a milestone that deserves to be commemorated with a special gift. The age 18 is the legal start of adulthood and can be a turning point in the lives of most young people. Give a gift that keeps the importance of the occasion in mind. Also take into account your sister's likes and interests when deciding on the perfect gift.


Giving a gift of jewellery is a perfect way to show someone you care. Charm bracelets make a sentimental gift. You can gift the bracelet complete with a charm that symbolises the milestone birthday. You and your sister can then add charms for future life events to create a heirloom.

An engraved watch or necklace would also make a personalised gift. Engrave a special sentiment to make the gift a treasured keepsake.

A locket with a picture of the family inside would be a great gift for a young lady about to embark on her adult life.

Tickets to a Concert, Show or Special Event

Give your sister tickets to a concert, show or other special event for a cool gift that will create a fun memory. The two of you can go see a favourite sports team, musical group, concert or play as a special bonding trip to celebrate your sister's 18th birthday. You could also get tickets to attend an event together such as a gallery opening, a fair, a carnival, an amusement park or for another activity you will both enjoy.

Tickets to the local movieplex to see a new release is another budget-friendly option. The tickets and the company can make it a twofold gift.

Gag Gift

Give your sister a tongue-in-cheek gift to help her celebrate her 18th birthday with a laugh. Construct a giant tombstone out of cardboard for a silly gift to illustrate the death of her childhood. Put together a scrapbook or slideshow of her beginning from a young age emphasising poor fashion choices, funny haircuts and her childhood interests. Narrate the book or video with commentary that pokes fun at her in a loving way.
