Nifty automotive-themed gifts for a special teen that’s turning 16

You knew all along that you were going to surprise your firstborn with a car for their 16th birthday, and, with a lot of hemming and hawing, you finally decided upon a fire-engine red midsized beauty that you know they will simply love. There is so much that goes into gifting your child a car, from a safety inspection to new tires to insurance – the list goes on and on. 

We have put together a collection of supplies that will help make their (and your) transition from training wheels all the way up to car keys a little less worrisome and a lot more fun! Congratulations to you both on this incredible milestone!

As hard as it is to realize that your baby is growing up, sharing the experience of their first car will be a time in life that you both remember forever. With the right preparations, a few special supplies, and a whole lot of faith, this time in life is truly a joyous occasion. While these supplies can help your teen to keep their car a little cleaner and a bit safer, there’s really nothing that can prepare you for the feeling you’ll have watching them drive away for the first time on their own. Maybe we should’ve included a box of tissues on the list!
