Your child only turns 16 once, so why not make it memorable? From simple to extravagant, there are many things you can do to celebrate this milestone occasion. While many parents give their kids flowers, chocolate, or new clothes, you can do even better. Here are some unique ideas for a truly special day.
Try Hot Air Ballooning
If you want to do something original for a 16 year-old’s special day, Nevada hot air ballooning is it. You can even arrange to have a private flight for an intimate family event or a small party for several of your child’s closest friends. Floating above the city, Las Vegas hot air ballooning gives you a chance to see iconic landmarks and the stunning Southwest scenery from a new perspective.
Make Lasting Memories
To follow up on your Nevada hot air ballooning adventure, why not create a lasting memory for your child by framing a favorite photograph from the trip? This is a special way to give your child a meaningful gift that will always remind him or her of the fun day that you shared together.
Go To A Famous Restaurant
A nice meal is something that most teenagers don’t treat themselves to, which means that it’s a nice gift as a present. If your child has always wanted to go out to eat at world-class restaurant in Las Vegas, such as the Top of the World at the Stratosphere or the Picasso at the Bellagio, this is a great chance to go!
Surprise Your Teen With Tickets
One clever way to avoid even more clutter in the house is to get your teen a special gift in the form of concert tickets. Perhaps your teen has a favorite band that’s coming to the area that he or she has always wanted to see. The surprise gift of concert tickets will be much appreciated!
Present A Family Keepsake
Younger children won’t necessarily appreciate a family heirloom, but many older children are curious about their family’s history and values. Therefore, giving the gift of a special family memento like a treasured photograph, jewelry inherited from a great grandmother, or a rug that’s been passed down for several generations makes a precious gift for a special occasion.
Give The Gift Of Learning
The gift of education is timeless. For a young curious mind, what better gift to give than a book? If you’re not sure what to get, give your teenager a book that you enjoyed reading at that age. After all, a classic novel is always appreciated, and it’s a good way to introduce your child to a new author.
From flying in a hot air balloon to giving your child a family keepsake, there are many special ways to celebrate a Sweet 16 birthday. The sky is the limit when it comes to creative ideas for a memorable present, but whatever you choose, this is a great chance to make your teenager’s day extra special.
