I want to make my niece money lei ($30) and add her favorite candy as a gift since she's having a luau party but I remember her mom made a remark about what can the kids buy from $25 since everything is expensive. Another gift I was thinking about is a gift basket but I don't really know what she like beside Coach, Express, iTunes, & Forever21. I wish I could give more but sucks I got laid off.

What do you think? If money is tight, how much money or what would you give a 16 year old girl for her birthday?

Thanks. I like it too because I like homemade gifts but that's just me.

I thought the lei was a great idea! And I think $30 is a nice amount. There's a lot she could buy with that.

I think that's a great idea! Or a gift card to forever 21 since it's inexpensive to shop there =)

I think so too and better than nothing. Her mom should understand that we're tight on money.

Forever21 is my 3rd option.

I think the money lei is a good idea.  I'm sure your family will understand that you were just laid off and can't afford much.
