Sweet 16 Birthday Gift Ideas

Girls turning 16 tend to be right on the pulse of what is cool, so giving her jewelry, like earrings, bangle bracelets, or a friendship necklace to be shared with her BFF will score you major points. Sixteeners will also go gaga for music or movie gift cards, designer perfume, and makeup kits.


Seek Outside Counsel

Once you’ve gathered all your intel and with knowledge in hand, have fun shopping for that Sweet 16 birthday gift. We’re sure even the coolest chick will love it.
