How do you put an entire 18th birthday celebration into a matchbox? Follow these simple instructions to find out…

Open up this pretty 'Happy 18th Birthday' matchbox to reveal a freshwater pearl and the inspirational message 'The world is your oyster' which is displayed over an insert decorated with (yes, you guessed it!) a map of the world. 'We want more!' I hear you shout - well, lift up the insert to reveal an essential item no 18th birthday can do without - a birthday candle. For quite literally, the icing on the cake, turn the matchbox over and place the birthday candle in the candle holder and light it. All that's left for you to do is blow out the candle and make a wish - now that's what we call an 18th birthday celebration in a matchbox!

Of course, at the tender age of 18 all sorts of wishes will come to mind so the matchbox also contains a leaflet with a wish list and a few pearls of wisdom to guide the recipient through life. As an added little bonus the genuine 5mm pearl has a hole drilled through it so it can be threaded onto a chain and worn as a keepsake. If you're looking for a sentimental, fun and quirky coming of age present, this 'Happy 18th' birthday gift is sure to tick all the right (match) boxes!


Unsurprisingly the box is the size of a standard matchbox. For those who like technical information that equates to 5.5cm x 3.6cm x 1.6cm.
