You can’t believe your little girl is almost 16. While this is not a birthday you have ever longed for, it’s something she hasn’t stopped talking about for the past two years! So now that the day is almost upon you, what should you get her that will be special for this day? You want something that will make a statement that she is no longer a little girl, but something that will be in keeping with your Catholic faith. Here are some ideas you may want to consider.

While some girls at this age look as though they want to be much older, your daughter still has the youthful charm that you want to preserve as long as possible. Why not check out a few kinds of religious jewelry that won’t be overly large or expressive? You might want to consider a silver heart charm bracelet, dangle “My Angel” silver earrings, or perhaps a hearts or stars charm bracelet to which she can add charms for other holidays and birthdays to come. Then there are half hoop fish earrings that aren’t overly expressive of her faith but symbolic, nonetheless. There is always something that hints at what she believes and that would make the perfect Sweet 16 jewelry gift you could find.
Selfie Tripod Post
Although your daughter may not be active on social media, this is something that will come in handy once she is ready to apply for college. Can you believe it’s only two years away and she will be off to the beginning of life as an adult? Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday you were taking turns waking up for those 2 AM feedings? Today, many college applicants prepare for their admissions presentation to the college of their dreams. This will give her what she needs to practice so that she can nail it without a flaw, and it will go nicely with that smartphone she got for Christmas from Grandma. Yes, she might start an Instagram or TikTok account, but at least you know she’ll have one of the tools she’ll need for those college applications.
Designer Duffle Bag
Beginning this year, your daughter will be going on out-of-town field trips with her sophomore class at school. A designer duffle bag would be just the thing for her to pack for an overnight trip with her classmates. It’s nothing too loud or too big, but just right for a weekend retreat with the girls. This is something required of all Catholic High School students in their formation years, but it’s not a chore for her. She loves spending time with her friends from school and what better way to impress them than with a designer bag?
It won’t be long before you’ll be shopping for a graduation gift, so take the time to look at all your options now! This will give you two years to prepare yourself for launching your daughter into a whole new era of her life. However, for today, she’s still your ‘little girl’ and it’s only her Sweet 16th, so you can be happy with that!
