Houston Quinceanera Gift Ideas
Remember this isn’t just any birthday—it is her quinceanera! She’s leaving childhood behind on her way to adulthood and it is the most important birthday of her life. What do you give the Quinceanera on this special day?
Rather than stress over the perfect gift, why not let the quinceanera herself do the shopping? In a city as big as Houston, gift cards can be the perfect gift. That way she can go and pick out something that suits her new, more grown-up style. Perhaps something like a new dress? And gift cards are better than cash because they show a little more thought because you are choosing one of her favorite stores. Cash cards are very cool nowadays. With cash cards, it's like having a debit card so it also creates a sense of financial awareness and of being a grown-up.
Twenty dollars is an acceptable amount to give a quinceanera. If you're giving a group gift, one person can collect cash from other givers and make it a card of higher value. Imagine the look on her face when she sees a $100 value on the card! She will be at that store the very next day! You can select a store where she can buy makeup (Ulta and Sephora are popular) or clothing. Department stores such as Target are also great ideas because she can find almost anything here. Music stores, book stores, and electronics stores are also good ideas.
To make your gift card even more thoughtful, personalize it with a special greeting card that has sincere thoughts and some quality life advice. Some suggestions for personalizing your card are:
HAPPY 15TH BIRTHDAY!

or ... When life is difficult, always remember the love and support that you have. With love and support, you can get through anything.
