Lets see if this will help. My two older sisters showed up to school, and interrupted my math class with a big birthday cake, they sang "Happy Birthday" out loud and really off key. They gave me a pretend razor, some shaving cream, a match box car, and fisher price keys to the pretend car. It was great.
I agree with AmayaEkio help him create memories. The other stuff just ends up broken but memories last a life time.
Take him to do something with his friends...help him create memories. :)
Lots of good answers here...is there a band coming to your area in the not too distant future that he loves? A ticket to that show would be nice.
eg, it's so hard with boys isn't it? Books are something you can always keep. A St Christopher's medal or a watch, maybe with something engraved on it? Honestly, right now I can't think what I gave my son on his 16th. My daughter I know got a small diamond pendant. Why do boys have to be so difficult? lol
EG, you said he loves music. What about concert tickets? If he's not one of those kids who is completely mortified to be seen in public with his mother, maybe you could go with him and you two could create a nice shared memory.
Is he thinking of his Driver's Licence yet?
How about a Proper lesson in Defence ful Driving?
( Braking in Wet Weather,avoiding accidents etc!)
I gave mine an iPod....he loved it
But I do agree with the other posts, create memories.
buy him a laptop and im sure he is going to love it..
A boot for you to shove up his *** so he doesn't turn out like me.
get him some tickets to see a good movie with his friends! :) [i just turned 16 today too!]
Hmmm... Games maybe he's wanted, movies, electronic "cool" toys like those very small and light flying helicopters, I hear guys like socks, a new bike, clothing, shoes-as presents?
I agree with some users here, making pleasant happy memories is always the best present.
Take him camping before they close the parks.
