Sweet 16 Beauty Birthday Gift Guide Ideas

Sweet 16 Beauty Gift Guide

My little girl is turning 16 next week and I can’t quite believe it! I have put together a lovely hamper of beauty goodies for her to unwrap on her big day and I am sure she is going to love them. She is not an overly ‘girly’ girl so she didn’t want any make-up or anything too flashy but I wanted to get her some beauty gifts that were a little more grown up and all very useable too. 

She loves products which have memorable fragrances and all the beauty goodies I selected (that have a scent) do tick that box as they smell amazing, I think she will especially like to have a soak in the bath with the heavenly scented Olverum. I will be sharing some more gift ideas over the week as I am excited that her big day is drawing near, it’s hard not to get carried away with gifts but it’s a special occasion and she is very deserving of some lovely treats.

Beauty Gift Ideas For Sweet 16

Every girl loves to have a bit of a pampering and my teen is no exception, and the natural range from Amie Skincare adorns many teenage bathroom cabinets for it’s value for money and gentle yet effective results. It’s no wonder that Amie in French means ‘Friend’ as the range of natural skincare products really are a girls skincare friend! Suitable for the most sensitive skin and free from any product nasties to keep the skin clean and balanced. A  gift of a collection of facial wipes, facial mask and moisturiser would be perfect for teenage skin and would look so pretty presented in a gift basket. With prices starting from £4.95 you can get a great selection at very good value. 
Once the skin is cleansed the next step is to exfoliate, the Barefaced! London Cleansing Brush from Magnitone is the ideal device to slough away any dead skin cells. What’s more it only takes one minute and I know that this feature is ideal for Siobhan as she has teenage impatience!  With three gorgeous colours to choose from this makes for a perfect beauty gift for a teenage girl to keep her skin clean and clear and something she can use again and again, a real investment for the skin. At £70.00 this is a gift that while a little higher in price will become such an integral part of a teen’s skincare regime it will be quite indispensable,  a lovely gift with plenty of longevity.  For a more detailed review read my Magnitone Barefaced! post for all the information you need. 
From Lou Lou Belle a trio of products to balance combination teenage skin which are natural and light and perfectly sized for a weekend away – I know Siobhan is really looking forward to going away on her birthday weekend so this skincare pack is ideal! All housed in a gift presentation box the cleanser, toner and moisturiser from Lou Lou Belle have natural essential oils and a beautiful fragrance of lavender, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin and geranium to balance and protect naturally. Priced at £14.95 these thoughtful gift sets make a lovely gift for a special teen, available from the Make The Most Of website.
The luxury of an uninterrupted bath is something my teen loves, with some music and beautiful bath products she is happy to have a long soak. Step in the stunning bath oil from Olverum a luxury bath product and perfect for a special birthday gift. A 16th birthday deserves some thoughtful gifts and the bath oil from Olverum is ideal, packed full of natural essential oils and fills the bathroom with gorgeous scents when running a relaxing bath to soak in. A little goes a long way and the stylish bottle of Olverum Bath Oil will make any teen happy to adorn their bathroom shelves. With pine, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, juniper and rosemary the all natural bath oil can also be applied directly onto the skin for a very relaxing massage. Available from the Olverum website for £23.50 for 125ml this makes a gorgeous gift idea for any teen. 
Perfume is an great gift idea and Woman from Christina Aguilera is a modern, pretty fragrance with scents from blackcurrant and vanilla and at £19.95 you can get this lovely gift from The Fragrance Shop website. My teen is just appreciating having some select fragrances and this is a fruity lasting scent which I know she will love. 

Last on my beauty list is the vibrant Colour Paints set from OPI with rich long lasting shades this set will give instant bold colour to the nails with no formaldehyde and a quick dry time this is a great set for teens. Priced at £19.95 and available from the Just My Look website these nail polishes will inspire any teen to get creative as you can blend the colours together in a fantastic new formulation. 
All that’s left to do is wrap them all up and wait until next week, I can’t wait to see what she thinks of all the gifts!

    I was never into beauty when I was younger so wouldn't have thought of any of these things for a 16 year old. I would love a Magnitone myself though 😉 x

    My son turns sixteen this year and he loves his smellies, but this post has been great for when my little sister turns sixteen next year 🙂 She loves her beauty bits and bobs, and is very girly! I'm taking her to London to get her hair done and then we're going to see a show (saving up already!) but these on your post would make terrific gifts, thanks! x
