Countdown to the Ten Most Fabulous Sweet 16 Gift Ideas for Girls
If your daughter, sister, girlfriend, friend or niece is turning sixteen, invest some extra thought into the gift you're going to get her. After all, turning sixteen deserves a special gift just like the ones we’ve shortlisted for you.

Pampering bliss: Buy a spa basket with loads of goodies including body lotion, face/eye mask, bath salts, body soufflé and mineral mud. You can even buy her a spa package at her favourite salon and complete it with a relaxing mani-pedi!

Gadget girl: Choose from neon coloured MP3 players, digital cameras, video game consoles, tablet PCs, travel speakers, cool headphones, laptops, digital key chains, affordable cell phones, and trendy USB flash drives.

For her room: If your girl is room-proud, gift her something that is totally her! Picture frames, digital or regular, bean bags/gaming chairs in bright colours, funky lampshades, accent candles/holders, unconventional bookshelves, colourful rugs and wall art.

Getting the look: Consider cosmetic gift hampers from MAC, Bobbi Brown and Rimmel or even organic make up items from Caversham. If she loves shopping for clothes, shoes, and accessories, buy her a sweet sixteen gift card.

DVDs/magazines: If she is a huge fan of the movies or TV shows, you can’t go wrong with getting her a DVD collection of TV shows and movies she loves. Also, depending on her preferences, an annual subscription for her favourite magazine(s) will thrill your girl.

Sporty chic: If your gift is for a sporty or adventurous 16 year old, consider getting her camping and outdoor gear (backpacks, tents, tools, apparel etc.) or sports and fitness related gifts like gym memberships and exercise machines.

Bring on the music: A collection of music CDs from her favourite artistes is bound to be a hit. Even better, buy her concert tickets so she can catch her favourite singer/musician live in action.


Keep things crafty: Depending on her hobbies, equipment for painting, candle-making, jewellery making, pottery, tapestry, and wood crafting will be hugely appreciated as sweet sixteen gifts.

Antique and collectables: For a special girl on her special birthday, an antique/collectable gift would be quite apt. Choose from figurines (glass, wood porcelain), vintage clothing, watches, jewellery, and African tribal art.

Birthstone jewellery: Immortalise your special one’s sweet sixteen by buying her personalised or monogrammed birthstone jewellery (opal, topaz, sapphire, etc.). Heart-shaped diamond/crystal pendants, charm bracelets made of semi-precious stones, or a bejewelled watch engraved with a special message make for great ideas.

Trust us, she’ll love any of these gift suggestions for her sixteenth birthday and will remember how you made it special for a long time to come. Go ahead, make her day!
