Card Game: You Laugh You're Out

My oldest son thoroughly enjoys getting together with friends on a regular basis at a local soda shop to play card games and board games with friends. 

Anything that involves laughter is always the most fun.

This game is fabulous in that there's not limit to how many friends can join the fun.

Listening to music and podcasts is all the rage. 

Why not listen while in the water as well?

Dinomite is a swimmer. 

Each week he's in the pool swimming laps for hours.

He's trying to build endurance and muscle to pass his life guarding certification.

What better way to practice than with his favorite tunes.

Waterproof headphones often work best when using a swim cap to hold them in place.

When he saw this book, he just had to have it.

He's also very interested in companion book, The Art of War.

Sports Equipment: Football Gloves

Many teenagers play sports and are often in need of new equipment. 

Dinomite works with our local college team, in a variety of ways, including catching a lot of fast flying footballs.

I've been told that these gloves are the best, and a must have.

They come in a variety of colors. I was actually surprised at my son's choice of color, but excited as well.

If you're looking for other sports equipment ideas, you can never go wrong with a new ball.

Dinomite is always in need of a new football as he wears them out so quickly.

Video Games: Nintendo Switch Subnautica + Subnautica Below Zero

Our teenage boys have an Xbox and Nintendo Switch. 

Both boys are trying to build their Switch game collection since they have so many games for their Xbox.

Dinomite is all about underwater exploration and building is own habitat for survival, so this set of two games is perfect.

Sports Attire: MLB San Francisco Giants Cap

When a teen loves sports, he will have more than one favorite team. 

It can be super easy to give sports attire that correlates to each and every sport he enjoys.

Dinomite is set when it comes to football. 

He's building his basketball and hockey collection as well.

But, he has nothing to wear when it comes to baseball.

So long as you know your teen's head size, a cap is the perfect gift!

Movies: The Batman Collection

I haven't met a teen yet who doesn't love movies of some sort. 

Movies are a fabulous gift, especially if you know the interests and passions of the person you're buying for.

Batman has always been Dinomite's favorite DC Superhero. He's watched several of the Batman movies, but not all of them.

This set of Batman movies includes all he hasn't seen. 

Gift Ideas for a 16 Year Old Autistic Boy: Book

Book: Dreamer of Dune: The Biography of Frank Herbert

Books can sometimes make the best gifts for others, especially if it's for a teen who loves to read.

Dinomite absolutely loves the Dune series. He loves the first movie as well. 

But he doesn't stop there. He still wants to learn more, and so he's moving on to the biography of the author.

Vehicles: LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Solus GT & McLaren F1 LM

No one is too old for LEGO sets in our home.

Adults, teens, and children all enjoy them equally as much, so long as you find a set that matches interests and passions.

Dinomite has always loves cars.  This passion has never disappeared.

He collects LEGO race car sets and keeps them on display in his room.
