Sweet 16 gifts, co-ed edition:

Knowing their interests, passions and future plans is a good place to start when considering a gift to bring to the Sweet Sixteen party, but if you're still stuck for ideas, consider these expert tips and suggestions for thoughtful gifts that will surely be appreciated by 16-year-olds of either sex:

  • Clothing Gift Card - For any fashion-conscious teen (aren't they all?) let them pick out their favorite teen clothing with a gift card from their favorite store. Depending on your relationship, go with them to spend some quality time, or let 'em loose at the mall accompanied by friends to help them celebrate the day.

  • Concert tickets - Since it's almost guaranteed your special teen has a favorite music genre or band, check local summer concert listings or surf the Web to find out where and when a special music event is playing nearby. Be sure to buy two or more tickets for a special afternoon or night out with friends or family. .

  • Gift basket of goodies - You know what they like, so fill up a tote or gift basket with their favorite snacks and drinks. Tie it up in a bright ribbon and you have a custom made gift they'll really enjoy. Don't forget their favorite junk food!

  • A new laptop or iPad - If they don't have one already, a new laptop makes a great gift for any teen to let them download favorite music, update their Facebook page, or to complete homework projects. If they already have a laptop or iPad, consider peripherals or add-ons they might love including a gift certificate for iTunes, hands-free car earphones, or other cool gadgets they'll go crazy for.
