A Guide To Your 18th Birthday Party Weekend

We know every birthday is special, but an 18th marks the start of many milestones to come. We love any excuse for a celebration, but an 18th birthday experience is extra worthy because the freedom tastes pretty good and this is their first chance to bite down properly.

Navigate The Confidence Cloak

Although your loved one might still be a baby in your eyes, they probably see themselves as a boss with life all sussed out. Luckily, you get to have a laugh as you watch the confidence cloak begin to lift and life-panic ensue. But, for now, it's probably best to live their fantasy with them and plan an 18th birthday with the sophistication they feel in mind. Think pamper, spa, 3-course meals or afternoon tea.

Don't Forget...

Unless you're planning a late-summer trip, make sure to check everyone in the group has a valid ID before booking anything with an 18+ limit. We state age limits or any other conditions on all of our activities, so just have a quick double-check (or ask us!).

Trump Tradition

The experience gift is where it's at. On the 18th birthday gift Googling quest, you might come across classics like jewellery, watches, maybe even a car or other material presents, but giving the gift of an experience day or getaway makes for memories that'll last way longer than any of these. Time for a new tradition, we think.

Kids At Heart

Novelty ideas aren't to be sniffed at when it comes to organising an 18th birthday trip. Inflatable Games, School Sports Day and Bubble Football are all examples of activities that will score highly on the desirability scale. Best to make the most of these retro experiences whilst the group's young enough to bounce back from inflatable carnage.

Get Personal

Nothing will impress your loved one more than receiving an experience gift that shows you really know them. Think back on their childhood; is there something they've always dreamed of doing? Or somewhere they've always dreamed of going? This is the time to tailor a trip to your individual almost-adult.
