A Book You'll Gift To Someone Turning 18

Post by Wasp Vigilante »

I have a friend who's turning 18 next month, and I am thinking of gifting her a book. But I don't have a lot of ideas as to what to give her.

I am currently weighing whether I would like to give her something that will entertain her, or something that will advise her on adult life.

There is a book called "Whar I Wish To Know When I Was 20" by Tina Seelig. I just don't know if it'll be good. I am open to more recommendations.

I know that my friend loves wattpad, but I am not sure if that's something I'm going to give. She is a cozy kind of person, who also loves novels and cute creatures (no, I am not givinf her a children's book). If you can find me somethinf that feels like summer or the spring, that would be good.

I hope you guys can give me some good recommendations. Wish you all a nice day!

I would give an 18 year old 'My Vision ‚ÄĒ Challenges in the Race for Excellence'. This is a book co-authored by Mohammed Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and Vice- President of the United Arab Emirates. This is the greatest leadership book I have read.

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig ! Makes you think a lot about how you're spending your life, really. Also, if you want to go the self-help route for your friend, Atomic Habits by James Clear is by far the most helpful one I've read.

I'm wondering if one of the classics might be good -- such as "How to Win Friends and Influence People", or some type of really timeless classic that has great advice for a young adult. Perhaps that's too "old school" but it's nice to share some really timeless wisdom as well.
