I recently shared some Sweet 16 Party Ideas with you, as we are counting down the days to my daughter’s big day in October. She wanted to take a couple friends to an Worlds of Fun so that’s we are going to do, along with an overnight stay in cabin to relax.
With her birthday around the corner, I partnered with UncommonGoods.com to let her do a little shopping. She found some great stuff that make fantastic uncommon sweet 16 gift ideas!
(This post contains affiliate links.)
UncommonGoods.com provided her with a gift card and she did all the shopping herself. There were so many neat items that I think it took her about an hour to decide what she really wanted.
Each one of these items are something my sixteen year old daughter picked out all on her own, and I hope they give you some great gift ideas for your child’s birthday as well!
Uncommon Sweet 16 Gift Ideas
Mason Jar Indoor Flower Garden
No matter what size your room is, if you have a window this Mason Jar Indoor Flower Garden will grow! Everything is included in this flower mason jar kit except the water kit and it needs little attention.
They will grow year-round in a sunny spot and the reusable, vintage-inspired lavender jar is equipped with a passive hydroponic “wicking” system that brings water and nutrients up to the plant’s roots! My daughter really loved this part since they made hydroponic system for the garden at school last year!
Bag of Cheer
Another great Sweet 16 gift ideas is a Bag of Cheer! You can spread joy with even the smallest gesture and this bag of cheer features charms to brighten up someone’s day.
My daughter loves to spread smiles and is drawn to people who need a lift in their spirit so I can see why she picked this gift. Inside of a little nylon organza bag are tiny lead-free pewter pocket charms including a pineapple for hospitality and friendship, a clover for luck, a heart for love, an angel to watch over you and a dove for peace and new beginnings.
Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet
About a year ago my daughter fell in love with reed diffusers. Her bedroom smells amazing because of it, and when she spotted this Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet she had to have it.
Great smelling and stylish, this bracelet gives you a daily dose of aromatherapy. With elegant beads and lava stones, this essential oils bracelet just needs a drop of your favorite essential oil added to the lava rocks.
Loofah Scrubber 3-Piece Soap Set
I don’t recall ever buying a loofah so I was surprised to see the Loofah Scrubber 3-Piece Soap Set among my daughter’s Sweet 16 gift ideas. That said, she’s been using them since they arrived and LOVES them!
This handmade soap and loofah set is colorful and smells pretty gosh darn good. These particular loofah scrubbers are made by KaKayung Cho, a Brooklyn-based artist who uses Japan’s popular Benbu spring minerals to create the color and marble her soaps. I’m not sure what those minerals are too be honest, but the smooth skin afterwards is noticeable!
Solar Powered Mason Jar
Obviously my daughter likes things made out of mason jars because she always chose this cool Solar Powered Mason Jar! With the ability to create 12 hours of cord-free clean-energy lighting, this solar powered mason jar is a decoration and useful! I say decoration because you can fill the jar with things like colored marbles or rocks.
Growing Wishes Seed Kit
Finishing off these Uncommon Sweet 16 Gift Ideas is the adorable Growing Wishes Seed Kit! This kit includes six different types of seeds that each have a special meaning, as well as stakes and pencils for marking plants.
Simply plant in sunlight, water, and watch those wishes bloom! The flowers are Sweet Pea (Friendship), Pinks (Strength), Forget Me Not (Love), Daisy (Clarity), Lavender (Happiness), and Baby’s Breath (Joy).
Uncommon Goods carries all these gift ideas, and lots more. Plus tons of unique home decorations for you kitchen and bar if you’re shopping for a stylish conversation starter!
