18th Birthday Gifts

Turning 18 is certainly one of the biggest birthdays you will celebrate in your life. It’s when you finally break free from the yoke of childhood and gain your full independence. You are finally able to live out your biggest childhood dreams and make major life decisions all on your own, such as getting a tattoo, figuring out where you’re going to live and who you’re going to vote for. 

Such a major event in a young person’s life deserves something extra special to commemorate it. Thankfully at Shiels, we’ve got you covered for birthday gifts with some pretty epic 18th birthday gifts to spoil the newly-crowned young adult in your life with. 

Read on for Shiels’ complete 18th birthday gift guide.

18th Birthday Gifts Overview:

Yellow Gold Diamond Pendant

The recipient of this gift can even pass it down to their own child when they turn 18 one day. Simple and timeless, this piece can be worn with anything from a plain t-shirt to a fashionable v-neck blouse. 

Daniel Wellington Classic Leather Watch

Whether it's a wedding, graduation or a milestone birthday such as an 18th, watches are often the go-to gift to commemorate these special occasions, and it's not hard to see why. They are so grown up and the perfect everyday piece that will never go out of style. If well looked after, a good-quality watch also has the potential to become an heirloom that is passed down for generations to come. This Daniel Wellington watch oozes sophistication and is guaranteed to bring a high level of class to just about any outfit.

White Gold Diamond Stud Earrings

Every girl needs a pair of classic diamond stud earrings, and this pair certainly takes the cake. Made from 9-carat white gold and a ¼ carat's worth of diamonds, this pair of studs is the perfect way to bring a little sparkle to your everyday wardrobe. The wearer can rock them individually or bring a little edge to their everyday style by wearing them alongside a pair of hoop earrings if they have more than one piercing. Diamond jewellery is a girl's best friend right?
