Birthday ideas - 16 yo lad

We are struggling with what to get our lad for his 16th Birthday this June.

He keeps saying he doesn't want anything (he has most things like phone, tablet etc....)

For our older son, when he was 16, he got early learner driving lessons and loved them. This one has no interest in driving at all. He seems to have no interest at all!

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

CBT and moped? Flying lesson?
Some sort of day out at his favourite place? Do you know any parents of his friends you could ask?

How about a parachute jump for charity? It will take the emphasis off of him (since he wants nothing) and focus his mind to raise as much as possible for a charity of his choice giving him a sense of decision making. Have it filmed and stick it on Youtube. He'll be a hit with his mates for doing the jump and have something for prosperity that he can always look back at in years to come and say "I did that!"

If it's a local charity, arrange to take him to their headquarters say just before Christmas to see the difference the money he raised made. I think he will be quite humbled and have learnt a valuable life lesson about caring for others and be well on his way to becoming a fine upstanding young man.


Failing that, a strip club!:laugh:

Best of luck :)

Liking the strip club although I need to vet it first ;)
 
He's got his eyes on one already!

Give him some money so he can take her shopping. Then tell him to mention to her that he loves shoe shopping, talking about his feelings and what she thinks about absolutely everything.

He'll be grinning like a Cheshire cat in no time.

Get him exactly what he wants...nothing :D

My Dad that with me when I was a kid. I opened my birthday present to find an empty Action Man Artic Solider box. My dad said .. "he must have deserted".
