Sweet 16 Birthday Gift Guide – Ultimate RoundUp

I can’t believe that my little girl is turning 16 today! It seems like yesterday that I was getting all the baby equipment ready to prepare for her arrival and now she is a young lady ready to celebrate her special birthday. I wanted to get her some special gifts to mark this special occasion and because I want her to know just how proud we are of her as she has grown up to be such a wonderful person.

I have been looking for gifts for her big day and have come up with my top ideas for Sweet 16 gifts, it’s a big occasion and every girl deserves to be treated on her special day I know we are planning a very special weekend for Siobhan filled with some of her favourite things to do, as well of course with some top notch gifts. If you take a look below you can see my suggestions to bring a smile to any Sweet 16 birthday.

I have been posting over the last few days about gift ideas for Siobhan’s sweet 16 and have loved choosing some perfect gifts just for her, have a look at my ideas for beauty, technology, jewellery and lots of other gift ideas which I have written about this week. 

Last year for Siobhan’s 15th birthday I made a rainbow cake and she loved it so this year I will be trying to top that and come up with something just as special, I will post about it after the party! In the mean time why not pop over and take a look at my Rainbow Cake recipe and see what you think.

All that’s left to do is get the decorations ready and I have a wonderful range of Noodoll range from My Little Day if you haven’t heard of them they are a party ware brand based on Paris with bright, vibrant and fun party items to adorn your house with for a party celebration.  The Noodoll range I love as they are cute and reminiscent of Kawaii which my teen loves so I am sure she will really like the fun designs. I can’t wait for her to see the table setting when she get’s home from school as I know she will love it!

There are so many party ideas on the My Little Day website it’s really worth taking a look if you are planning a party for any occasion, as the bright, modern and fun designs suit so many different tastes. 

I’ve had the pleasure of using My Little Day products before on Lara’s birthday and I wrote about my experience with them as well as a recipe in this post featuring Elderflower Cupcakes.  The kids loved the fun range which they coloured in themselves as well as they cupcakes which went fast!

I have a lovely competition coming up soon to win a selection of the Noodoll range which you can see in the photo below so you can try it out for yourself.

No party would be complete without some balloons and turning 16 doesn’t mean you have to dispense with the childhood favourites! A more modern grown up twist on the party essential comes from Bubblegum Balloons the Rainbow Bright Confetti Balloon Pack £15.95 are twelve confetti filled opaque balloons send flat, ready to inflate on the day with helium. They look extra special for a birthday celebration and the rainbow confetti adds to the occasion, Siobhan is going to love the look and I’m pretty sure they will end up in her bedroom after her birthday!

Siobhan doesn’t really have a favourite colour so the Bubblegum Balloons Rainbow Bright Balloon Pack £4.95 is ideal for her birthday celebration, that’s why I chose the Rainbow Birthday Cake last year as I knew it would be perfect for her. Sent for you to inflate yourself with helium these balloons will add a burst of colour to any birthday party. There are many great ideas for party balloons on the Bubblegum Balloons website and if you aren’t able to get the balloons inflated yourself, not to worry as they can either inflate them with air or helium before sending or supply a helium canister for you do do it yourself.

I will be taking photo’s today when we have a little party for Siobhan and will Post them with her birthday cake, they look amazing and this morning when she came downstairs for breakfast I had them all ready by all her gifts and she was thrilled with them!

From Party Delights you can get all the little extras for your teens birthday party, see above for a selection of party ideas I have put together for Siobhan’s birthday. I felt this year being her 16th birthday it would be good to make more of an effort and with all the great ideas from Party Delights I was spoiled for choice.  She is going to feel very special with the balloons, banner, bunting and sweet 16 hanging decoration and there is plenty more choice over on the Party Delights website.

It’s a big occasion your little girl turning 16 and why not celebrate with a bang and pull out all the stops, the lovely decorations from Party Delights were just just the job to decorate the house today and I’m sure she will love the display when she comes home from school!
