If your daughter, grand daughter, family member or friend will be celebrating her “Sweet Sixteen” birthday soon, you will want to get a special gift for this very special occasion. Regardless of the amount you are able to spend, there are a number of gift ideas available that will provide good memories for years to come.
The first Sweet Sixteen birthday gift I would recommend is something that every teen will appreciate. Along with giving a more personal gift, a money tree is an exceptional gift idea. Most sixteen year olds are getting their driver’s license some time after their birthday, so the extra cash will come in handy. I’ve always used the small branch of a tree, that has several sprigs coming off of it. You can decorate it with ribbons, dried flowers, etc. You can place it in a basket , (also decorated), and attach dollar bills with scotch tape, to the tiny branches. As I stated, you would also want to provide a more personal gift, even a small one, to go along with the money tree.
The second gift idea I would recommend is the Sweet Sixteen necklace, available at Overstock.com. It is sterling silver and is available for the price of $26.00. It is described as being a silver necklace pendant that reads ‘Sweet 16’. The charm has a single white cultured pearl on it. It measures 16 inches.
Thirdly is a Sweet Sixteen sterling silver link charm bracelet. It is available at Cherishedtimesdesign.com, for the price of $25. The company also offers an assortment of charms made of silver, gemstones and Swarovski Crystal. This bracelet is simple but elegant, and you can make it unique, by adding personalized charms of the teen’s favorite things, hobbies, friends names, etc. The ladies size Small/Medium, has links for eight charms. It is approximately 7-1/2″ X 8-1/4″.
Another great gift idea is a basket full of items that might include a makeup kit, gift certificate’s for a facial, make-over, hair treatment, manicure and/or pedicure. You can also include an inexpensive pre-paid cell phone to use in case of an emergency in the basket. Small items that can be purchased at your local dollar store are great to add to it too, such as a nail file, nail polish, hair brush, mirror, etc.
A small gift that be given is a Sweet Sixteen T-shirt. One that is available at justjen.com, is also made with Swarovski crystals, spelling the words “Sweet Sixteen”. The crystals are said to be perfectly cut which accounts for the great sparkle they give. It is available for the price of $27.90. It is 100% cotton, and made in the USA.
One of the best gifts you can give your Sweet Sixteen birthday girl is a box of pictures of herself. Include photo’s from the time she was born, up until the day before the party. Also include photo’s of grand parents, cousins, aunts, uncles and any other family members. If she’s had a best friend since she was a little girl, add any pictures of the two of them together. It will make for great memories in the years to come.
