If a special girl in your life is turning 16, think about ways to really mark the occasion. While a Sweet 16 party will make for plenty of memories, a keepsake that reminds her of this moment will be something she can treasure for many years to come.
Here are 3 ways to commemorate an amazing Sweet 16:
1. A 16th Birthday Josef Figurine: Something she can take with her to college or keep stored safely at home, this vintage-inspired collectible is beautifully crafted and created from an original design by artist Muriel Joseph George, who started the Josef Originals in 1945. Each Josef birthday figurine is carefully constructed with ceramics and 24K gold paint. A true keepsake!
2. A Personalized Scrapbook: Building a scrapbook can be such a fun activity and one that documents her first 16 years is sure to dazzle. She’ll look back on the memories and make more of her own in a scrapbook that includes pictures and mementos from birth to 16, with plenty of extra pages to fill with time!

3. A DaVinci Beads Bracelet: Able to be personalized with charms to match her hobbies and interests, a DaVinci beads bracelet is something she can enjoy and add to with each passing year. Just make sure to start her off with a DaVinci Beads Sweet 16 Charm!
