Sixteen-year-old boys have pretty much outgrown the desire for toys and moved on to wanting gifts that have to do with their hobbies or collections. Many also like gifts that will allow them time with their friends. The trick in learning what, exactly, your teenage son likes is in listening to him.

Depending on what your teenage son likes, you may want to give him items that he can use for his hobby. A power saw and woodworking plans are an option for a teenager who is into woodworking.
A new fishing rod would work for a boy who fishes, or a rack for the poles he already has. A hunter would appreciate a gun and bullets, or a cabinet for his firearms. A license for fishing or hunting also would be appreciated.
If photography is your son's hobby, then a digital camera with a carrying case would work. Extra memory cards will be necessary if he takes a lot of photographs.
Cards and Tickets
Gift cards to your teenage boy's favourite stores in the mall make a nice gift, as well as one to a restaurant that he particularly enjoys. Movie tickets and money for food also are nice. These types of gifts allow a teenager to hang out with his friends or his girlfriend.
Many teenage boys like technology. A new laptop in his favourite colour, complete with case and printer, may be just what he is wanting. Don't forget the ink and paper for the printer. A flash drive will come in handy for him if he needs to save documents or other types of information.
Most teens want a cell phone. Keep in mind that many will want to be able to text as much as they can, while others would rather call and talk to people. Many also want to be able to use the web on their phones. Find out which features are the most important to your son before purchasing a phone and a plan.
