Here are some ideas others shared with us
mobile phone if she has'nt got one already
Girls this age are always expecting to get a new car. At least, I was when I turned sixteen two weeks ago. I unfortunatley didn't but I did recieve a WELL NEEDED alarm clock, Backpack, shoes, money, and Dinner to a place of my choice. I was very happy and had so much fun.
Mine's coming up and I'm not doing anything. In fact, my family won't even be here, they'll be across the country. Haha. :) My mom asked me what I want to do when she gets back, and I don't want to do anything or get anything that will cost her money... I just need her to sign a little piece of paper, for her to accompany me to the piercer, and let me pay for my own piercing. I'm not expecting a car because I get my brother's, but I really don't want a gift from her, because she's going to pay a bunch of money for my driving school and my car insurance. That's how I'm thinking of it anyway.
btw i'm from australia =] for my friends 16th i made her an iMovie on my iMac of all our memories caught on tape, a slideshow of pictures with her and my other friends with forever young in the background =] I also made her a two disc song playlist for her iPod, I brought a big pinboard painted the outside pink and purple and the inside yellow with glitter and collaged pictures of me and her because i knew she was getting her room redone!!! she loved all her gifts from me and she was almost crying!!! i felt soo good giving it to her and the look on her face!!!
For my Sweet 16 I would like a piece of jewelry with my birthstone in it. Maybe a cute necklace or bracelet in silver.
Or a gift voucher at the stores I shop most at. I like Myers, Sunny girl, Splish Splash Swimwear and Surf Stores.
Gift packs/boxs are popular as you get many presents in one. You can add cute hair clips, headbands, notepads, pens, lollies, lip balm, nail polish, moisturising lotion and anything else.
A few other items i would personally like would be Sunglasses, Gossip Girl 2, a new handbag and anything beachy eg. Dry shampoo, salt spray for hair, jumpsuit for over bikinis, nice smelling sunscreen, water bottle, beach bag etc.
well my sister is simple and she turned sixteen over summer, and what she really wanted was a camera (her other one broke) so a camera would be a good idea so they can take pictures with friends and always hav the most up to date pictures on there facebook :)

for my friends bday i made a book of like each year...the year she was born until now. and it had a bunch of stuff that happened that year. i also got her a movie night out basket that's always easy: $5 movies from Best Buy and like a bag of popcorn and a magazine. maybe some candy
I'm turning 16 in april, and even though it's far away, my dad doesn't want me getting hooked on the idea of having a "sweet sixteen". I guess he thinks if i think of it as a "sweet sixteen" party I will have EXTREMELY high expectations for a good turnout and then it would be more likely that i end up disappointed. so... for my 16th b-day me and A FEW of my closest friends are going to go out for lunch and my mom will rent a limo to pick us up from the restaurant and take us to the mall (since i rarely get to go shopping). then she'll give us each some cash and I will get more, however, because i will be the birthday girl. and we'll have fun in the mall for a couple hours then take the limo back home and watch movies in our jammies and stuff like we have for all my other b-days.
I know a lot of 16, 17, and 18 year olds who absolutely love to read, so a gift card to Barnes and Noble, Borders or a favourite local book shop couldn't be a bad idea. Anything that includes jewelry, handbags, clothes, shoes, makeup and accessories would be a good place to start. Look into her interests; if she likes cooking, maybe take a cooking class with her. It would be a great way to connect with her and her passions. Language learning is also important and a fun way to connect (for high school and college to come), so having some background in language learning is fun and a great way to jump start a healthy life. Its a jungle out there, so I would also suggest insurance. Donating to a charity of her choice would be fun, and thanks to the digital age, getting her a laptop, mp3 player, and/or cell phone would be great gift ideas.

My group of best freinds (5 of us) all are really close&do everything together, so when one of us turned sixteen we got a scrap book&made a scrapbook with pictures of us all&her hair is bright red, so we made everything bright red, and then we each wrote her like, 2 page note about how much she means to us all&gave it to her last at her party signed by all of us. she loved it so much she teared up a bit(but then again, weve been through alot together). hope this helps!
Mostly they want a car to drive around in and show off! thats the main gift!
my friend is turning 16 soon and i am going to make a canvas with all our photes on it and write her name in big letters at the top say her name :)
i really want a puppy for my 16th birthday but i dont think it will happen
I like random stuff from friends.
Has anyone ever been to Paper Source? Here's the link: http://www.paper-source.com/
They have a bunch of little random thing's that I'm ion love with and awesome wrapping paper. It's under Gifts, and then select "quirky humor."
-DVD's and TV Series on DVD
-Books (Give one of your favorites to the girl and maybe another that you thought they could enjoy)
-Urban Outfitters giftcards/iTunes/H&M/Victoria's Secret
Recently i have seen one gift searching app for all occasions. by using this "www.elgifto.com" we can find nice gifts and also we can buy a gift with ease.
I downloaded used this app and I could quickly found a nice gift for my friend, but was not able to make a buy. I then went to <a href="www.elgifto.com">Best gift suggestions </a> and I was able to buy it with ease.
If you have inside jokes with your friend the get the something to do with that, like my best friend taela and i have a joke about orangeade , so i got her loads of that and also she LOVES dark chocolate, so i also got her that, similarly we also throw chat up lines to each other so i found a card with a picture of some bread on saying " nice baps " on , aha i know she will like that one :) so personal things are alwals lovely :)
I'm planning my own party and it's over two days long!
I'm making special invitations for my V.I.P guests. It will be on DVD and be only my lips talking.
The day of my birthday (friday) we will rush home from school. Get a lift into town.
We're going to check into our hotel (my V.I.P's don't know anything about what we're going to be doing) drop our bags off.
Then go to a spa for a Perfect Pamper package which is 2 hours 30 mins for only £100 per person!
Then go back to our hotel (Jurys Inn) have a takeaway :P then bed.
Breakfast then home get ready for the night (formal)
Boyfriend comes round and him and my V.I.P's get a black limo to Venue
A black Starlit L.E.D Dance floor with DJ (ukdancefloorhire.co.uk)
All my school friends are there. As a sent invites for them before hand ( just a normal card)
Cut my cake (Black and white with gold flowers all down the side)
My top present would be the latest Apple I-thing or a Lulu Bag.
I know its sounds like I'm a spoilt little rich girl
But I'm not!
I've never had a party before so this is a special one!
Hope this helps! :)
A scrap book filled with all of your inside jokes would be a very personal and fun gift to give.
A designer hired to make a perfect dress especially for her
Since all girls are different, it is definitely hard to come up with a nice gift. It is only a 16th, so don't go over the top or get too worried, unless it is a best friend and you are willing to spend a bit more money.
For my birthday i was given heaps of different things from friends such as clothing vouchers, books, CD's, kilo of gumballs, dvd, clothings, perfume and money.
Can gift a swt coffee cup, a stuff toy/teddy n a big lovely card wid her fav. choclates......
-spa giftcard for mom and daughter
-basket filled with favorite things
-memory foam pillow
hope this helps..im turning 16 in december and kinda want all this
ummm.... WHat my friend is doing for me, is he is takeing me out for a day, and he is taking me shopping, then we are going to go to this fancy resteraunt, eat there, and at night it turns into a nightclub (Coco's bistro and nightlife). Im 16 in 40 days.
For my 16th birthday it was supposed to be a suprise in may but I found out because I just had knee surgery and it might be a no go but since where I live you get your liscense at 16 a lot of people will be able to drive so there will be about 30 kids (guys and girls) and we are driving down to a camp site and spending 2 nights there. Everyone is bringing $20 to help pay my parents for the food/tents and anything else and then from my boyfriend I asked for a necklace and from my parents they are getting me a tattoo to support my mom (:
Marc Jacobs Designer Bag ;)
