Ok, so we have been invited to a 21st birthday. He is the son of one of OH's workmates, so we don't know him at all, but seems all his mothers work mates have been invited.

So, what to give him ????
Don't want it to be alcohol in any way, shape or form and not too expensive either.

So, any suggestions gratefully received.

An Itunes voucher - I'll bet you a hundred bucks he has an ipod of some description and an itunes voucher will allow him to download music to the value of the coupon you give him!

Is he a car guy? A reasonable toolset/socket set would suit a car guy, esp if your hubby can pump his dad as to what holes his current toolset has and you can fill a hole in it.

Couldn't OH ask the mother what he might like?

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

My standard 21st present is a hip-flask.
Pocket knives, chilly bins, clothing vouchers and cuff-links have all figured largely at the 21sts I've been to over the last few years.

But if you don't know him then maybe cash in a birthday card would be the way to go?

Strange how much you've got to know, Before you know how little you know.

My standard 21st present - male or female is "Edmonds food for flatters". Incredibly well received and if he isn't already flatting, he will probably leave home at some stage. 200 recipies for small budgets, small spaces and big ideas. Maybe he is a secret foodie. Grin. P.S. I have used heaps of recipies out of it for myself and they are great.

Yes, I do, but from what little I know about the family, it would not be an appropriate gift.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Will get OH to try and get some further info on the lad, but I am leaning towards the cook book idea at present.

I am still not sure why we have even been invited, and OH is not really sure he wants to go, but it sounds like all his work mates will be there, so we may yet go. Have to rsvp this week.
