Good present to buy a lady on getting her Majority

I'm looking for ideas for a suitable present to buy a lady to celebrate her Majority. I got her a pearl ring to celebrate passing out of Sandhurst (completed the earrings and necklace ladies wear in mess dress).

Of course I could just get her a present but I'd like to get something that seems relevant.

If she doesn't already have them; a Mont Blank pen set? Perhaps in a relevant regimental colour?

Beige list was out in Dec 09 and those selected don't wear it until July, so you're either a bit late in asking this question or planning well ahead!

An engagement ring? As the statistics are against her being married.

Get her the female Apache pilot book book so she knows the standard that all lady officers should meet in the view from behind stakes!!

She gets acting on appt to a post in April and substantive in October. (at least I thought it was Oct but you may be right and its July).

I like the pen idea.

(BTB - she is married)

Why not a little crown? ......... ;-)

More seriously, nice dress watch or a nifty ink pen package.

In which case I hope she is either your wife, daugter, niece, sister, cousin or goddaughter, or else I would suggest that a present as personal as those described might not be appropriate.

Female Majors are something of an unknown quantity to me, but if she's anything at all like a significant proportion of her male peers, a course of preemptive psychiatric counselling woudn't go amiss.
Other than that, a decent watch or pen set (suitably engraved) seems appropriate.

A really nice pushchair. Within months she will be looking to have babies and the retiring as soon as the pension is secured! :x

Sorry, just bitter and twisted. :oops:

Has she got her own sword? Now that is a quality present.

Crown? She could strollt about her unit saying "Who's Queen?" a la Miranda Richardson's Elizabeth.

I had an SA80 combination tool silver plated for my best man's gift (we were both on the shooting team).

Of course, if she is your wife, nothing less than Agent Provocateur.
Now that I really like - although perhaps not on this occasion.

There is a jewellers called J M Bickerton - used to advertise in Soldier Mag. Back in my strawberry days I sold them a domain name - www.regimentalbrooches.com and they sell be-jewelled or gold versions of capbadges as brooches - I got my missus a R SIGNALS brooch for some occasion and this was very well received..

Why not get her unit's badge, so when in civvies she can show a subtle allegiance?
