  • A luau! We had my daughter's sweet 16 in august, you can do it pretty cheap! I made fruit kabobs, ordered Hawaiian pizzas. You can get really creative with really fun things for them to do at the party. If your interested in ideas, send me a message, i can give you sooo many ideas for a" tight budget!" My daughter and her friends had a blast!

  • One of my friends ordered the M&M's you can have customized. She had them print her daughter's name & birthday and bagged them w/ some pastel Hershey's Kisses in cellophane bags. It was adorable, & while the M&M's aren't super cheap, the way she did it made it affordable.

  • Costume jewelry, overnight bags (buy the canvas bags at a craft store and create a personalized iron on on the computer to commemorate the event). Mani/Pedi kits (baskets w/ polish, buffers, toe wedges, cuticle sticks, etc think dollar tree)

  • At 16, it will really depend on what her friends like. You could have a group of girls that can be girls and like the medi-ped kits. You could have a group of girls that are more eco-friendly and don't want things to harm the environment which you could get worms in earth for their garden and groups of seed (I saw it happen, not fibbin). You could have a group of nerds that all ways note pads and pencils that are geeky or you could have a group of artists that want art supplies (mini pain sets are cheap and fun). Or (here I shudder in fear) they could be movie fans and all of them want Twilight (or something equally odd) pictures, magnets and candies.
    Sweet sixteen can be sooo important for a girl. Make sure to ask what her friends are interested in before you go buying stuff. Especially if it ends up meaning that every teen ends up with a different set of favors. It'll all be worth the frustration in the end.
