Sweet 16 Gifts from Mother to Daughter for Her Birthday

by WriterArtist

Every girl cherishes the Sweet 16 gifts from her mother. They are a token of love from her dearest mother.

Sweet 16, a major event in a girl’s life is keenly awaited by the girl and her mother. She is of course waiting for ages till she could turn sixteen, appreciate and take pleasure in those presents. This landmark event is commemorated always by gifts from mother to the daughter. It is an excitement time for both. A tough job for the mother is in selecting a gift that is unique and creative. The doting mother would go to great lengths to choose the gift and wrap it with all her love.

This is the age of electronic gadgets. Today’s generation takes to gadgets as a fish takes to water. Electronic geeks and enthusiasts are lapping up every new gadget to hit the market. My daughter like everyone of her generation is tech savvy to the hilt and has a great taste for gizmos and gadgets. At sweet 16, she is as knowledgeable as a computer wizard if not more. She loves playing computer games and is marvelous at computer programming.

With so many gadgets in the market there is a long list of “could be gifts” for her. It is not easy to fathom the mind of a 16 year old girl on the threshold of adulthood learning to face new life gracefully and adeptly. She loves gadgets, outdoors, music, books. Even though she has outgrown her little dolls, she still loves to have the life size American girl doll who has vivid eyes, who never complains and is always ready to accompany her.

Birthday Ideas for Daughter


Describing your daughter will go a long way to help decide the cherished gift.

How do you describe your daughter?

She is a lovely person and very cheerful but selective about her friends. Her friends have to be compassionate and understanding. Though she is not an introvert, she is very particular about the friendship, which means she roams only with the selected few who have the same frequency and taste. So do the gifts. My advice go for gifts that are personalize

How about her wardrobe?

She is not fussy about the dresses that you select for her but they have to be comfy and modern. She does not prefer beaded and embroidered clothes but would rather choose plain outfits with a trendy style. She loves soft shades like mauve, light blue and peacock green. My advice would be to go for trendy T shirts, skirts and jackets that match her hair and look nice on her complexion.

Does she love jewellery?

She loves brilliance of gold and the bright sparkling of diamonds and pearls. My suggestion would be to go for authentic designs in platinum and gold.

She loves plain designs in jewelry, simple enough to match with her clothes, no heavy and bulky stuff but light colored gems with a blue or pink hue will do. If she is not very selective in jewelry, you can still go for gemstones and sterling silver designs.

Sweet 16 Birthday Gifts

Is she an outdoor person?

She loves swimming and it will be really good if you can get her some great swim wear and gear.

I would recommend you to buy a higher and stronger SPF cream that protects her from the harmful UV rays of sun and a subtle nourishing moisturizer and lotion that keeps her skin soft, natural and glowing.


Is she a gadget freak?

She loves the IPad that she received on her present and would love to get an upgraded one with more memory and improved performance and speed. She loves her mobile handset, which is her constant companion wherever she goes.

My advice would be to buy her an improved IPad that has more memory and is sleek in design. You can also buy a handset from Motorola or Nokia, they are less expensive compared to Blackberry.


Does she have a selective music repertoire?

She loves to hear music on IPad that she has downloaded which is of course a great selection from her favourite music bands and singers.

Maybe you should buy her a good mobile phone that has cool features and is affordable too. If you have heard her collection of songs, go for those sound tracks that are pretty cool, good for relaxing and having fun. Buy “Rock and Roll”, jazz, hip-hop or an orchestra based on her liking.

In particular, I appreciate the very first image of the porcelain mother and daughter on the sofa with the feline sentient mother and daughter and the ginger jar and the porcelain music boxes.

Wouldn't it be quite fetching for the open pages of the book that the mother and the daughter enjoy to allow affixing real photos?

These are some nice ideas. I like the music box and the charm bracelet best. Pinning (note that the music box is currently unavailable on Amazon). (The one you chose for your thumbnail is also very cute:). Pinning)

It is high time since I had bought tickets to some festive occasions. The music festival tickets seem like a great idea for "sweet 16" b'day.

My daughter wanted tickets to a music festival... I got them for her, and a set for her brother who turned 18... they had a wonderful time together
