A girl's 16th birthday, referred to as her Sweet 16, marks an important event in her life. Often girls celebrate with special Sweet 16 parties, which are usually more elaborate than regular birthday parties. Many people consider Sweet 16 presents more important than other birthday presents and may wish to select a special gift for a friend's, daughter's or niece's Sweet 16. You have many options for great Sweet 16 gifts.


Jewellery represents a great choice for a Sweet 16 present. Birthstone jewellery or engraved jewellery can personalise a Sweet 16 gift.


Electronics always make great birthday gifts. Birthday girls can use new digital cameras to take pictures of their Sweet 16 party. MP3 players, cell phones and computer accessories also make great Sweet 16 presents.

Spa Pampering

Give the gift of relaxation by pampering your birthday girl with a spa set, including lotion, body wash, facial masks and exfoliating scrub. Or consider giving her a gift token for a massage, a pedicure or a day at the spa.

Gift Cards

Gift cards always make a great gift. Give your birthday girl a shopping spree at her favourite store, a gift card to an entire mall, a gift card to her favourite restaurant or a Visa or Discover gift card that can be used anywhere.

Event Tickets

Tickets to an event make a great Sweet 16 gift. Buy your birthday girl a couple tickets to a concert, Broadway show, sports game or other event. Pairing event tickets with a gift card to a nearby restaurant also makes a great gift.

Sweet 16 Mementos

Give your birthday girl a keepsake photo album, a scrapbooking kit or a gift token to create an online photo book so that she can preserve her Sweet 16 party memories forever. Make sure someone takes pictures throughout the preparation for the party and during the party. Online photo books can be created through several websites, including Lulu, Shutterfly and Snapfish. If you're artistic, consider making the scrapbook or album yourself, and write the birthday girl a card explaining your gift.

Signed Photo Frame

Buy a picture frame, a white photo mat and coloured permanent markers or paint pens. At the party, have the guests sign the mat and write short notes. Afterward, the birthday girl can place a picture from the party in the frame to remember her Sweet 16.
