The Top 4 Sweet 16 Gifts Every Girl Will Love

Teens celebrating important milestones can definitely be picky when it comes to things they like and dislike, and girls can be even more difficult to shop for than boys. If you are looking forward to celebrating a Sweet 16, you may be at a loss when it comes to what would make the perfect gift for such a momentous occasion, but the list below should help you narrow down your options and help you pick the gift your recipient will love.
For the High-Tech Girl

For girls who like to stay on top of the latest gadgets and pieces of technology to remain connected to the world around them and have access to information at their fingertips all day every day, search for the latest iPhone, Android phone, or iPad. Parents who surprise their daughters with these gifts are sure to win huge hugs and gratitude in return.

For the Girl With Fashion Sense

For girls who absolutely love fashion and staying on top of the latest trends within the fashion world in order to look their best all the time, a gift card to the mall could be a welcomed surprise that will leave them waiting in anticipation for their next shopping spree. Head over to your favorite mall, purchase a gift card, and simply let her shop at the many stores available, where she can update her wardrobe, purchase shoes and purses, and then grab a bite to eat to recharge before shopping some more.
For the Girl Who Loves Makeup
Teenage girls can't live without their makeup. So for the birthday girl who enjoys changing up her look and her style, why not get her a large makeup kit that will give her the many options she craves? This is also the perfect gift for the aspiring makeup artist. Check out stores like Sephora and Ulta, where you can find myriad makeup brands, purchase gift cards, and even snag great deals on products like Sephora's Makeup Academy Blockbuster, which contains 130 different colors for the lips, eyes, and face.  
For the Girl Who Adorns Herself in Jewelry
Many teenagers enjoy wearing jewelry not only to express themselves but also to make themselves feel older, more sophisticated, and more beautiful. Therefore, an affordable piece of jewelry—whether it's a ring, a bracelet, a necklace, or a pair of earrings—is a great option for any Sweet 16 gift. Look up the birthstone for your special birthday girl and then purchase jewelry whose design has been infused with the birthstone. Including a small note that describes the significance of the birthstone is a nice little added touch.
If you can't find any lovely pieces of jewelry with the recipient's birthstone, or if you know she won't like that kind of jewelry, you can also look forcustom monogram necklaces for girls, which are extremely popular today. This is a completely unique piece of jewelry because it features the recipient's initials, so it's perfect for the girl who likes to stand out from the crowd.
