  • Help needed on birthday present for 22 year old

    Suggestions required for birthday presents for my niece - age 22, into going out with mates and clubbing, has low paid job but works really hard, in relationship but no kids, not in own accom. We're going to send her money for her main present but would like to send a few fun/useful things for her to unwrap on the day, probably spending around £20-£30, lightweight would be good as we have to post them this year.

    Any ideas much appreciated, thankyou (cos it's a while since I was 22!)

    Molton Brown Stuff - its so lovely i'm sure most people would appreciate it.

    Or some kind of expensive makeup/perfume
    DrPirate is technically my little brother apparently - even though hes like a bazillion foot taller than me (OK 6 inches)

      Blimey, 22 and still getting presents from aunty & uncle!
      I'd suggest buying something she wouldnt normally buy for herself but would probably like. For example (and depending what kind of girl she is), expensive lipgloss from a good apothecary, or, some makeup from mac, maybe even some flowers..?

        I'll be 22 this year........I think I'd like things that are classed as luxury items that I can't buy unless I have spare cash.

        I'd personally be chuffed with decent makeup, perfume, gift vouchers for clothes, CD's and DVD's.

        Iím the sum total of my ancestors
        I carry their DNA
        We are representatives of a long line of people
        And we carried them around everywhere
        This long line of people
        That goes back to the beginning of time
        And when we meet, they meet other lines of people
        And we say bring together the lines of me

          I'm 21 and someone got me flowers for my birthday, I was over the moon!

          Wasn't a massive bouquet or anything like that, but just the kind of thing I'd never have got otherwise. Made my accom look amazing for a fortnight as well.

                Nothing wrong with that! People can buy gifts for whoever they like.

                    MAC is a makeup brand. Google MAC cosmetics and something should come up

                    Personally I love Wyetry's suggestion - I'm 22 and if someone bought me something from Molten Brown I'd be thrilled, but then again I'm not really a make-up kind of girl and it's hard to choose that for someone else.

                      Probably www.maccosmetics.co.uk .

                        You could also consider an experience based gift

                        - Cinema Vouchers
                        - Dinner
                        - Theatre, etc

                          I think the above is a good idea. Theatre tickets or tickets to a theme park.

                            benefit makeup would probably go down a treat too
