Sweet 16th Birthday Gift Basket

Sweet 16 Gift Basket | 16th Birthday | New Driver Gift | First Car Gift

Today is my baby sister’s 16th birthday.  I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.  I remember screaming and dancing in the street, “I have a sister!  I have a sister!”  Sorry to my brother, but there’s just something about the bond between sisters – there’s nothing like it.  Lucy was my little baby doll from day one.  She was my little guinea pig.  She taught me how to be a mommy, before I was a mommy.  And as she’s grown up, she’s become one of my best friends.

Today my little 4 pound baby doll gets her license and a car!  How could this be?!

I want to make sure my sister’s birthday is as fun, and as special, as possible.  However, there’s also the side of me that also loves practical gifts.  So here’s what I came up with: a you’re-getting-your-license gift basket!  I tried to think of every possible thing she might need for her new car, with the addition of a couple of fun items, and this is what I came up with…

New Driver gift basket:

If time and money were no object, I could have added a new wallet, a gas station gift card, and a gift certificate for a car wash.

I also ordered flowers to have delivered to her at school.  She’ll either love them, or be totally mortified.  I may be a practical mama, but I’m also a fun sister.  I can’t wait to see her reaction. 😉

What else would you add to a 16th birthday gift?
