    Default Xmas gift suggestion for 18-year old daughter?

    Once again, I am lost. I can't be bike related. No books either. My clothing taste is apparently pathetic, so no point going there. My wife is buying bigger ticket jewelry, so I'm looking for something smallish: $30-50. She's going to be freshly back from 1st term at university so she's going to somewhat artsy/rebellious. Help me out fellas.

    Granted she's a few years older, but I just picked up one of these for my sig. other. I believe Darren has one, or something similar, in black.

    I like the down vest but no vinyl for her. I'm the vinyl guy. I've subjected her to BTO, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, Bauhaus and the Who and she's like "meh".

    every girl likes jewelry. and if you do it right, the perfect costume jewelry will make you a hero and she'll be absolutely the only person w/it or anything like it. thats key. there's gotta be some funky consignment/whatever shops in yer area?

    ...broke my heart when my kid referred to the punk rock I'd been playing, for years, for her benefit, as "adult music".

    But, hey, last night she said she loves Leonard Cohen's voice! There's hope for her yet.

    That's perfect, now I can lose my phone and credit cards at the same time.

    Get her a gift card to someplace like Sephora. Lots of girly stuff there.

    FookinA, you too? ... Up the bucks a little and get her a chunky colorful stupid looking BabyG watch. That's what I did for my ostensibly adult's 18th a month ago. It was a hit, with her and her friends (which was probably far more important than what she actually thought of it).

    She subjects me to pure shit music on a regular basis; so I subject her to the Clash. At least she's developing a grudging appreciation for the Smiths (and I'm taking her to the Morrissey show in Denver in Feb .. we were supposed to see him on her 18th bday in November, but he postponed because his mommy in dear old England was sick. I don't have a problem with that.)

    18 year old daughters are both agony and ecstasy. Mostly one, or the other. If I don't want to murder mine, I want to hold her tight.

    Good luck.

    Take her out to dinner and give her your gift at dinner; ice cream together afterward. What you give her will matter less but let it be something that you thought of however small so long as it shows thought. She will remember the night and probably the gift too.

    Both daughters also like their babyG. The only issue is color is subjective. They both have White Series.

    She's not said meh to the vinyl, though, has she? Loads of new stuff coming out on vinyl as well..
