I've been invited to my former sister-in-law's granddaughter's Quinceanera later this month. Since I've never been to one, I need help choosing an appropriate gift. Has anyone attended a Quinceanera? I really need help with this one.

Had to google that one:
If they have strong ties with their background then perhaps a more religious or cultural gift.
If not perhaps find out what the girl likes. Best of luck.
a cash gift is an option. She could be saving up for school, clothing, laptop or a car.
Most religious gifts are given by her Godparents or Aunt's and Uncles. If you could find out from your ex sister in law, who her patron saint is, you could get her a medallion of that saint. Jewelery like a charm bracelet or earrings is nice. Remember this party is to show that she is entering in to adulthood and the gift should be appropriate for a young lady. Meaning you wouldn't buy her a toy gift. Most Quinceanera's are as extravagant as a wedding. I hope that you enjoy it and have fun.
Thanks for all the great suggestions. This is a very special occasion for my sister-in-law, too. This young lady was named in memory of her tia, her grandmother's only daughter who died tragically in a car accident many years ago when she was 16.
I'd stick with $$ or gift cert's...
have fun and eat, eat, eat!!! the food at those things is always out of this world!!!
But are they serving margaritas? :-)
Two of my ex-husband's cousins have a small catering business specializing in Mexican food. They were featured in a Blade article a couple years back. I hope they're doing the food. In all the years I was married I never saw anyone drink a margarita at a family party. I think Anglos drink a lot more margaritas than Mexicans. We'll see.
I know that ... I was tipping my hat to SensorG and gamegrrl, who each implied in previous threads that it won't be long before someone asks about the margaritas at a Mexican food opportunity :-)
