Thread: ideas for my brothers 16th birthday!

    Default ideas for my brothers 16th birthday!

    well my little brother (who is now 6ft 1) is turning 16 in August, and im trying to be super organised, and get his present early! or at least decide what im getting him early!

    usually i just buy him clothes - we go to the shops together and pick out something. i dont want to give him money, but i have no idea what would be a good present for him to think 'god my sis is the best!' lol

    im thinking along the lines of something he can 'do' (you know how for 21st birthdays ppl have drives in v8 supercars or on rally tracks etc)
    im not really sure whats available to 'do'

    aarrrgggg any ideas??!!??

    They can be driven at age of 16 in a V8 so they still get to go real fast, swim with sharks, hot air ballon ride, flight in an acrobatic plane.

    A watch.

    ohh really? i never thought about passenger... i might look into that one - swim with sharks wouldnt work - he would freak out! lol and the plane would make him throw up!

    excellent ideas ladies! keep them coming!

    Rach try googling Red Balloon Days dot com dot au they have lots of 'experiences'

    I too have an ubercool younger brother and struggle with his gifts. A couple of years I've looked on Ebay and got him signed poster of bands he loves. One was just a torn out guitar music signed so i had it framed.
    You can often get them really well priced.

    roughly how much do they cost? if its pricey, i might speak to mum and dad and we could get it from all of us... im liking the V8 drive - just trying to picture his reaction... i think he would really like it!!

    I did a V8 drive one birthday from my DH he thought it was great and in theory it was cool, but it was really only 5 laps for well over $300.

    Go-karts are ok for 16yr olds, as long as you go to a proper track

    I asked DD who is already 16, she said what about an ID bracelet, her BF (18) said something to do with a car since he can get his Ls then can't he? They both wanted to know about what he likes LOL

    thanks for the ideas!!

    mrsmac, he loves the wrestling (WWE etc) he loves his playstation & Wii, music (listening to, not playing instruents or anything! lol) gee, i dunno!

    this is why i thought about something he can 'do' he does have a weak stomach tho, so no real dare devil stuff!

    maybe i could look into the id bracelet.. or a nice chain or something, he doesnt have anythign like that.. hmmmmmmm
