a list of original and inexpensive birthday gifts for a girl

Thinking about what to give a girl for 18 years, first of all, you have to admit to yourself that you won’t be able to get off with a trinket. Either you are looking for a really unusual idea for a gift, or you “close” the lack of imagination with the high cost of the present. Plus, do not forget that from the age of eighteen to real adult life there is still plenty of time.

We offer several options for gifts for a girl for 18 years, which will definitely not upset the birthday girl.

Top 14 best gift ideas for a 18 year old girl

If you have recommendations and additions on the material, you can send them to the mail [email protected] . To discuss advertising cooperation, call +7 (495) 637-65-16 (on weekdays from 9:00 to 18:00).

A gift for the most beautiful girl

Your present must be beautifully packaged. It must be given without fail with a bouquet of flowers (find out in advance which birthday girl prefers) and a prepared witty speech. And the main gift can be something that emphasizes the beauty, grace and good taste of the heroine of the celebration.

1. Jewelry

It is logical that the eighteenth birthday becomes an occasion to present the first serious ring, pendant, brooch. The problem is that not all adults realize how segmented the jewelry market is now. That is, there are treasures for every age. There are few universal things that are equally suitable for representatives of different generations.

So you have to put yourself in the place of yesterday’s teenager, put aside your ideas about beauty and thoroughly understand the tastes of the birthday girl, take a closer look at her wardrobe, make-up. The worst option is to give an expensive piece of jewelry, “so that it is”, as a contribution “for a rainy day”.


Illuminated mirror

A large dressing room mirror with lamps around the perimeter will make the girl feel like a movie star. Effectively! However, LED-lit mirrors are not as ruthless in terms of power consumption, and they are often easier to fit into the interior.

3. Wrist watch

Design will be decisive when choosing a completely non-functional, but spectacular accessory. Wristwatches do not have to emphasize the status (and what kind of status is it at 18?), but they must certainly be combined with the girl’s lifestyle. Sports watches, bright and original or vintage … Perhaps, just a boring classic is the least appropriate here.

A gift for communication

At this age, a girl is surrounded by friends, life is in full swing. Classmates, former classmates, colleagues (some already earn their own living). Therefore, the birthday girl will definitely appreciate the gifts for communications.

4. Smartphone

It seems that the days when young people needed an iPhone to feel like adults are gone. But still, a smartphone for the eighteenth birthday will have to give a top-end or so. This gift is not a shame to discuss with the birthday girl in advance. After all, it is quite possible that she already has a specific model in mind.

For health

Healthy lifestyle is not just a fashion fad these days. Among the birthday gifts, there must be something for the health of the birthday girl. Don’t be stingy, choose really healthy things, not cheap protein bar sets.

5. Juicer

No matter how your relationship with a healthy diet develops by the age of eighteen, a juicer will come in handy. In a glass of fresh juice after breakfast, there is both goodness and a slight flair of aristocracy. And fresh juices are a good reason to think in an adult way about what enters our body and what are the consequences.

For travel

18 years old is the age at which a girl can completely independently decide where to go or go. So feel free to choose travel gifts for your birthday.

6. Tent

You yourself know that in life, sometimes quite suddenly there are moments when a tent is desperately needed. Especially in youth. But keep in mind that a stuffy, uncomfortable and poorly protected tent from moisture can prevent you from spending the night in camping conditions for a long time. Fortunately, there are few such copies left on the market.

7. Suitcase

A symbolic gift recognizing the girl’s right to complete freedom of movement and as if saying: «The whole world is open to you from now on.» Let the suitcase be compact — this will once again emphasize that the thing is purely personal. Secondly, he must be cute. And, of course, on wheels.

For creativity

At the age of 18, a girl can have several hobbies, usually all friends and relatives already know about them. Ask them and please the birthday girl with something that will definitely come in handy. Let your gift become a necessary, favorite thing for her.

8. SLR camera

A rare modern girl is not interested in photography, at least at the Instagram level. And 18 years old is a very suitable age to fully experience the difference between a DSLR and a smartphone camera. It would just be nice to be sure that the birthday girl is seriously passionate about this type of art. Because the cheapest DSLRs cost the equivalent of a smartphone with four cameras.

9. Home recording kit

Musicians often start writing songs by the age of 18. The opportunity to record them at home is the most valuable gift for such a girl. The musical instrument is already there. Now you need an external sound card, a microphone and headphones. All of these can be purchased as a set or individually. Sound cards usually come with software, a music editor in the beginner version. The enthusiasm of youth is definitely enough to easily master the basics of working in such a program.

For sports

Movement is life, and at this time there is so much energy in girls that there is enough for dancing until the morning and for active sports. A sports gift will definitely not leave the birthday girl indifferent.

10. Exercise bike

Large Russian cities are not yet friendly enough to two-wheeled road users. But pedaling is a good habit. Especially when compulsory school physical education is a thing of the past.

The most cost-effective option in terms of space savings is an upright exercise bike, or even better, a foldable one. What is nice, expensive copies differ from the available ones mainly in additional electronic gadgets. With the main goal, burning calories, everyone copes. Only portable simulators cause distrust here.

11. Balanceboard

The board on the roller was originally intended for the training of athletes for whom balance and coordination of movements are critical. But the thing «went to the people», became fashionable and self-sufficient. We recommend giving along with skater protective ammunition.

For comfort

Show the birthday girl that you care about her health and comfort. Let your gift remind her that someone is worried about whether she is cold or wet. Just consider color preferences so that your present does not lie dead weight in her closet.

12. Original umbrella

An unusual but reliable women’s umbrella will be a great gift if the birthday girl does not expect too much from you. After all, it’s one of those things you don’t usually buy for yourself. In addition, umbrellas tend to get lost somewhere, which means there are never many of them.

For fun

The pleasures of adulthood can be hard to resist. And here the old wisdom comes to the rescue: «If you can’t win, lead.» Why not choose a symbolic adult gift as a gift for a girl?

13. A set of wine accessories

Such a set (if it includes something other than a corkscrew and a cork) will encourage a deeper acquaintance with the drink, the formation of the right consumption culture. A book that tells about the nuances of winemaking will not be superfluous at all. By the way, understanding wine is a youth trend that is only gaining momentum.

For a business girl

Emphasize your admiration for the birthday girl by listing her best business qualities. The birthday girl will definitely appreciate your speech. And a gift can be something useful for her active social activities, study or work.

How to choose a gift for an 18-year-old girl

  • By the age of majority, most teenagers are active in social networks. Perhaps the idea for a gift will be prompted by the posts of the birthday girl.
  • At the age of 18, many are captivated by stereotypes about adult life and the distribution of social roles in it. You should not confirm teenage fears with gifts and scare with dull scenarios for the future. For example, a set of crockery or kitchen utensils could be interpreted as referring to «stove seat». And it’s a completely terrible idea to give something for the coming family life.
  • Emphasize with a gift that the girl is entering a period of unprecedented freedom. That she is free to make any decisions. It may not be entirely true, but at this age you still want to believe in a fairy tale.
  • Adult skin care products, like any cosmetics that remind you of age, are a bad idea. There is no need for them, but they can sow unnecessary anxiety about the future.
  • Money is a boring gift. But we have to admit that due to the lack of good ideas, as well as in case of failure of gift intelligence, it is better to present a swollen envelope for 18 years.
  • Eighteen is a very important milestone. Formally, the girl will become an adult, but she is still waiting for a gift with vivid emotions of a teenager. A better moment to fulfill some of her big dreams may not turn up. So don’t save!

What to give a girl for 18 years — original gifts for the 18th birthday of a beloved girl from a boyfriend, parents, girlfriends

Birthday is the most personal holiday that can be. For many, and this is understandable, this is the most favorite day of the year. After all, all attention is focused on the birthday. This is the day we get older.

And at a young age, turning 18 is not just an ordinary date on the calendar. This is a certain milestone of growing up, and on this day the atmosphere is special.

Coming of age is the day when “everything is possible”. You feel that with this date you become an adult and take responsibility for your life and future. Therefore, a birthday present for a girl of 18 years old must be chosen with special attention.

Gift from parents

Parents often advocate practical gifts. So that there would be benefit, and, of course, also give joy. To choose something purely for the soul is already for friends and girlfriends. And in this paragraph we will consider what is sure to be useful to a girl in everyday life. What can be gift ideas for an 18 year old girl from parents:

  • Suitcase or travel bag. If a girl often goes on the road (on a trip or to study), you can choose a stylish suitcase for her or a beautiful and functional travel bag.
  • Laptop bag. In our rhythm of life, a laptop often becomes an indispensable assistant both at school and at work. If a girl often takes the device with her, a good bag for him will not hurt.
  • Women’s handbag. Here is an item, rather, for mothers and sisters. The male half of the family is unlikely to be able to choose the right color and style of the product. Every modern girl has one or even several handbags — for every day, purely for going out, for special occasions, etc.
  • Backpack. A young lady who leads an active life will certainly appreciate a quality backpack. Which style to choose — judge by the interests of your daughter. There are urban models of different sizes, including those with compartments for a laptop. There are sports models that will suit the appropriate style of clothing. After all, there are backpacks, backpacks, backpacks and other specialized accessories.
  • Mobile gadgets. See here for your needs and budget. But the most popular option among gadgets is a mobile phone, tablet or laptop. But also do not forget about e-books if a girl loves to read. Good headphones for a music lover or a stylish portable speaker are also a good gift.

Jewelery remains among the classic gifts.

For a young girl, it is better to choose delicate and neat products, without piling up details. Neat pendants, chains, bracelets and earrings are exactly what you need.

And it is important to choose the style of jewelry and the metal of manufacture individually. You can choose an angel made of gold to your taste, but a girl would appreciate a silver witch riding a broom more … In general, making the final choice of a gift for an eighteenth birthday from relatives is very important not to your taste, but to the taste of the birthday girl. Parents are often sure that they know better what will suit the child, because they raised him from the moment he was born. But it is precisely this confidence that often causes conflicts. And a quarrel at a holiday over a gift is the last thing we would like.

What to give an 18-year-old girl from a guy

From your loved one on your birthday you always expect something like that. Fulfillment of a dream, for example. Especially at such a young age. But, of course, everything depends on opportunities, including financial ones. Therefore, when analyzing what gift a girl for 18 years from a guy can choose, we will consider different options.

  • Jewelry. This is the most predictable, but no less pleasant present from a beloved man. Be careful with rings if you do not want such a gift to be taken with a hint. And so the choice is huge — popular Pandora bracelets, earrings, pendants and pendants, headsets. Choose only not the most expensive, but exactly what the birthday girl will appreciate.
  • Gloves. It is quite possible to give a girl stylish and elegant gloves for her 18th birthday. For example, you can choose automobile. They have an original cut and a very attractive design. In these gloves, your girl will definitely feel a surge of self-confidence.
  • A smartphone or other gadget that she has long wanted. You know exactly what the girl needs. But maybe it’s time to upgrade her phone.
  • An evening just for the two of you. For example, you can book a table at your favorite restaurant or arrange a romantic evening somewhere on the roof. As for the latter, now you can order the organization of a romantic dinner on the roof of one of the houses in the city, and everything will be done for you. You will only have to enjoy the atmosphere.

If you are choosing a present for your girlfriend, you probably already know her quite well. Therefore, you only need to listen to her, to her hobbies and views. And then the choice becomes much easier. If you want something original, it is better to start preparing in advance so as not to get into an uncomfortable position due to the timing of the production or delivery of the item.

Gift from girlfriends and friends

Who, if not friends and girlfriends, can make the holiday really memorable? Who will not only support the craziest plan, but even lead it? Of course, we are not talking about something illegal. It’s just that friends will be able to create the most fun and relaxed atmosphere for adulthood and beyond. What kind of gift can you come up with for an 18-year-old girl from her friends?

First, as we said, it’s the atmosphere. You can make an original congratulation from friends, and even organize a party for the birthday girl on your own. For example, rent a cafe, a limousine, a gazebo in the fresh air. On DR 18, a holiday organized by friends will be remembered for a long time. Complete all this with bright balloons of different shapes or with funny inscriptions, fun contests or games — and the image of the perfect evening is ready.

Secondly, let’s not miss more material presents:

  • A cool T-shirt or other item of clothing with an original print (this is both a memorable gift and inexpensive),
  • Set of make-up or care cosmetics,
  • Handmade cosmetics (smelling soaps, scrubs, bath bombs, etc.),
  • Sweets from individual confectioners — with individual decoration and expensive ingredients,
  • Gift matching her hobby,
  • Home appliances, if the girl already lives on her own,
  • Stylish accessories — umbrellas, scarves, scarves, gloves, belts, wallets.
  • Gadgets — from headphones and portable speakers to power banks and original lamps.

Remember, perhaps not so long ago, the girl herself told you that she would like to purchase this or that thing. But the most beautiful thing in a gift is when it fulfills the desire of the recipient.

Emotions as a gift

But giving is not only about things. Impressions are no less valuable present. And what impressions can be given to a young girl? It all depends on her tastes and preferences, temperament and level of adventurism. For our part, we will offer versatile options for every taste:

  • Hot air balloon flight. This is a chic memorable present from a young man. Such impressions will remain at least until the next birthday. Just make sure the girl isn’t afraid of heights. This is an expensive gift in terms of value, but it is really worth it.
  • Skydiving or bridge/pipe jump. If a girl is a fan of adrenaline and extreme sports, then she will definitely like such a gift. By the way, you can also give joint impressions by jumping together. This is an idea for a young man, and for a girlfriend or friend.
  • Photo shoot. What girl doesn’t dream of a professional photoshoot where you can dress up, put on a chic make-up and, as a result, get photos that you can admire endlessly? It can be just a studio photo shoot with portrait photography, or a themed, fantasy outdoor photo shoot. Here already decide what the hero of the occasion would want. Here you can also add a certificate to the make-up artist and hairdresser to create the perfect look.
  • Dance master class for two. A very romantic gift for couples in love. If you both like dancing, of course. It is better to choose a simple direction and contact. A good option is social dancing, where you can feel the connection with each other. This is definitely a creative gift.
  • Riding lesson. Does the girl like horses? Then what could be better than riding this noble animal. If possible, you can add a photo session as a gift.
  • Lesson in driving a car, motorcycle or ATV. For an active girl who loves technology, you can pick up such a gift. Especially if she had long dreamed of learning to drive.

In addition, you can give travel — from an unforgettable weekend to a week-long trip to a place where she has long dreamed of going. By the way, such a gift can be both from a loved one and from parents. Yes, and with a friend to go on a fun trip will also be great. But in order for the surprise to really succeed, you need to guess so as not to violate any important plans. It is ideal to choose an option with an open date, which can be adjusted already to the circumstances.

Certificates: practical and useful

On the one hand, money is always a practical gift. The birthday girl will be able to buy what she needs. On the other hand, there are no surprises, everything is somehow quite ordinary. But 18 years is not an ordinary date. For many, this is a transitional stage into adulthood. And here certificates for various goods and services come to the rescue.

What can be selected and presented in the form of certificates:

  • Make-up artist and stylist services,
  • Spa session or massage course (e.g. facials),
  • Perfume or jewelry shop,
  • Hobby Store,
  • Accessories store,
  • Cosmetics shop,
  • Lingerie or clothing boutique,
  • Sportswear shop for fitness (if the girl is actively involved in sports),
  • Electronics and gadgets store (for example, she can pick up headphones or a power bank there).

If you don’t know exactly what to give a girl for 18 years, give a certificate — and the risk of making a mistake will be minimal. If you know a person at least a little, you can easily choose in which area a certificate is worth acquiring.

Which bouquet should be given for 18 years

What holiday can a girl do without a bouquet? This is a great addition to any presentation option. True, today there is a choice — you can give a bouquet of flowers, or you can give an original one from various goodies. But about everything in order.

First, let’s discuss what flowers to give a girl for 18 years. In fact, there can be no universal answer here. First, all people are different. Some like only roses, others will be the cutest of all a bunch of wild flowers, others will be delighted with strict lilies. In general, it is worth focusing, first of all, on the tastes of the birthday girl herself.

And if you want to make an original gift for an 18-year-old girl, order a bouquet of sweets or exotic fruits. It will definitely cheer you up, and you will provide the hero of the occasion with a supply of goodies for a long time.

In this article, we thought about what parents, friends and a loved one give girls for 18 years. But there is no strict distribution, as you understand. If you want an unusual gift, try not to get too original, so as not to overdo it and get surprise instead of joy.
