Basketball Shoes

Boys at these age are into sports and exercising. A right pair of shoes for the sport is necessary for their growing bodies. We got him the Addidas Adipure Crazyquick shoes. These are meant to help those with flatfeet which is a very common condition often without any pain.

FYI : If your child complains often about aches around his ankles, calves and knees check him for flatfeet.

Laptops For Teens

By this time 15 and 16 years olds are in high school and have a lot to do. Besides keeping up with their studies, they have to participate in extra curricular activities which are important for college admission. A 13" laptop is easy to carry and will let him catch up on his work when he has free study period in school.

Give Gift Cards When You Are Not Sure

If you have hard time deciding what to buy for a fifteen or sixteen year old boy, consider giving him a gift card.

You have three ways to send these; mail, print at home or email. The Print at home or email options allow you to use your own photos to make it personal. You can choose your own denominations as well.

 

Portable GPS

A reliable GPS will make a practical gift for a teen boy or girl learning to drive. We got one for our daughter but only after she was quite familiar with the roads and highways. Look for ones that have a speed limit indicator to warn drivers when they are driving above the posted speed and those that give directions early on regarding what lanes to take when approaching a turn.

      My son's ideas for gifts are usually the very things we don't want him to have more of - computer games. I like the fact that you have squeezed out a slightly wider choice. Great work!
