While girls traditionally receive special consideration during their sixteenth birthday, boys also go through a right of passage at that age. Finding the perfect gift involves thinking about them as young men on the edge of adulthood. A number of these gifts include car accessories since they have reached legal driving age, golf clubs or their own cell phone.

Car Accessories

Once a boy hits the age of 16 the next major life event usually involves earning a driving licence. While purchasing a new or used car for the young man often busts the wallet, a few other automotive options exist. These gifts include steering wheel covers or window decals themed after their favourite sports. Another more practical gift includes a full emergency kit complete with tools and items to help fix a flat tire and other minor repairs. Another option includes purchasing a GPS system for the young man so he never gets lost or his very own AAA membership for roadside assistance when necessary.

Golf Clubs

A new set of golf clubs comes in handy if he still uses clubs meant for a boy. Gift givers wanting to add a little something extra also purchase accessories such as a golf bag to go with the clubs, new golf balls, a golf glove, golf umbrella, golf shoes, golf club head covers or new tees. Some of the major brands in golf include Titleist, Callaway, Nike Golf, Bobby Jones and Pinnacle.

Cell Phone

Another gift to symbolise the maturation towards adult for a 16 year old boy includes their very own cell phone. Parents have a number of options when purchasing a cell phone including deciding the number of minutes, texts and web access minutes for the plan. Parents also have the option in a number of plans to start a family plan, greatly reducing the price. Gift givers also have a variety of cell phone accessories from which to chose such as cell phone covers, hands-free gadgets, ring tones and cell phone car chargers. The major brands of cell phones include Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
