Sporty Gifts For 15 and 16 Year Old Boys
It can be tricky trying to find a suitable birthday or Christmas gifts for a 15 or 16 year old boy. It can be difficult to come up with ideas when the boy you are buying for seems to have everything.
When I asked my 16 year old son what he wanted for a gift, I would invariably get a list of video games. I know that video games are very popular with many teenage boys, but like me, you may want to get him something different. Something to get him away from that addictive screen. Something other than just cash or a gift card (yeah, I know that's safe, but it's not very original or satisfying to give). Maybe something which will help him to be a bit more active or to get outdoors. Maybe something that will surprise him because it is something he never thought of, but he actually enjoys it.

By the age of 15 or 16, many boys have developed a particular favorite team sport they like to play. Sporting equipment relevant to their sport may be the perfect gift for them.
Other boys will be into biking, skateboarding, hunting, water sports, or snow sports and equipment for these activities will always be a well received gift option.
Still others at this age are not so much into sports and it can be quite difficult to motivate them to get active. The best way to motivate them into getting active is to find an exercise or sport that they like. There are a number of fun activities which they can either do with their friends or by themselves. Here are some fun ideas for both the sports-minded guy and the not so sports oriented.
