Make their sweet 16 one to remember and find the ideal present for a 16-year-old. Whether it is your son or daughter, grandchild or friend’s birthday there will be a wonderful gift for you to buy for their 16th birthday.

What are 16-year-olds into? Obviously, this won’t be the same for all 16-year-olds. Maybe they are into sports a footy fan or rugby maybe playing or do they support a team? You could treat them to their teams kit or tickets to watch a match or if they play how about the latest fashion in boots.

A 16th birthday can be seen as a milestone birthday for some with large celebrations and extravagant gifts. For others, it isn’t celebrated in the same way as an 18th  or 21st. You need to gauge whether the recipient is celebrating their 16th as a “special birthday” or just another teen birthday.

Either way, you need to find the perfect gift for your teen turning 16. If you want a special gift to mark the occasion there are plenty of ideas out there from special jewellery, picture frames etc. Although these days teenagers can often be seen to have it all and they aren’t so interested in the sentimental gifts and would much prefer the latest technology gadgets and the branded clothes. Find out what they like or need and treat them to something they may find hard to afford ordinarily. Maybe an expensive pair of trainers to you but it could make their year if that is what they really want.

A lovely piece of jewellery is bound to go down well with a teenage girl maybe a necklace or a charm bracelet that you can add to over the years or a special watch for a 16-year-old boy. Or how about a jewellery box to store their treasured jewellery.

Knowing what your teenager is into is going to be a massive help in finding an appropriate gift for the occasion. Maybe you have a teen boy who loves rugby or gaming then the ideal gift could be something to help with their hobbies. Maybe they are into photography so a decent camera could be a great gift so they can capture memories for themselves.

Some teens may love an experience day to mark their sweet 16th. There are plenty to choose from whether they would choose to do something exhilarating or something relaxing it’s your call. An experience gift is sure to give them something to remember for their special birthday and look back on with happy memories.

Personalised gifts are great for marking a special birthday and there are all sorts of things available for a range of budgets, for example, the 16th birthday personalised jar of sweets is a lovely token gift for a friend who is turning 16.

A lot of 16 year olds like their music so you could buy them an album from their favourite band or speakers to play their tunes. Or how about the ultimate treat for a music loving teen you could get them tickets to see their favourite band and how about looking into the possibility or backstage passes to meet their idols.

For girls, you can always go to the old faithful gift of jewellery. You could get a beautiful locket necklace or a special bracelet or pair of earrings maybe with their birthstone in to make them extra special. Boys may not want jewellery although some do like it, but if not a watch is often a good choice and can be engraved with a birthday message.

Something a bit different can be a young driver experience. They may be looking forward to learning to drive when they get to 17, but you can do young driver experiences at younger ages so this can help them when they are old enough to drive and gives them a taste of what it is like to drive a real car.

Or how about some sweets for their sweet 16? You can buy personalised sweet jars which make a great present especially if they have a sweet tooth and you know what their favourite sweets are.

Lots of 16-year-olds like their brands they are expensive, but a good treat for a birthday gift. You could get them so trendy trainers or a jacket to keep them looking cool. Make sure you find out which brands your teen is likely to wear and be happy with.

Gadgets always go down well with teens and 16-year-olds are no different. They are bound to be chuffed with a new phone, iPod or a games console if they are into gaming. If they already have a games console you could get them a new game or two.
