She is 18 although not really grown up due to having Downs, all she watches is Friends on her little DVD player but she has got ALL of the episodes, therefore, I am totally stumped what to get her this year

how about a boots no 7 gift set, smellys or make up etc x x x

What other kinds of things does she like - sorry, don't know much about Downs or have any friends with kids etc, so this may be a stupid question, but are there any pastimes / hobbies that are especially enjoyed or considered good for people with this syndrome? if u know what I mean :oops:

she is happiest when she is eating! and watching Friends, thats about it really. Now she is 18 I am hoping she may take interest in some new hobbies:thumbsup:

If she is like my daughter and really enjoys her dvds, then how about a big pink fluffy dressing gown and some pink fluffy slippers
#9
If she likes eating, then what about a cookery book of really basic recipes? She will get to eat what she makes and have a sense of achievement.

How about a quick email to one of the support organisations specialising in this and asking the same question ( e.g. http://www.down-syndrome.org/ ). I know she's 18, but still, you might get some good answers...

To be honest, she is no different to anyone else, her downs doesnt make her gift choice any harder than any other child

exactly, although she is much harder to buy pressies for as she isnt into as much as other 18 year olds, ie Friends and food

Downs tend to have a child-like outlook-my o/hs auntie loves to play music-lol

I think the dressing gown and slippers sounds fab but what about this?

she may not be able to read well but my son age 6 loves a calender-she can plan things on it and mark the days off?
