He is that guy who you grew up with and shared many memories with. He can make you laugh, cry or mad. He can be the guy who drives you nuts. But above all, no matter what, he is the guy you absolutely love.
After all these years of knowing him, sometimes you still get stumped on what to get him during special occasions. And if the gift is not the right one, you'll probably never get the end of it. So, how do you solve this? Try these gift ideas that just might work for your dear brother. Best of all, these items are inexpensive so it will not break your budget.
Usually, start with knowing your brother's interests. Some of his interest can vary from time to time so it is best to be updated with his current ones. Trends in the market may also interest your sibling so bear that in mind.
If your brother is a rabid sports fan, make sure you know his favorite team and get busy searching for a gift with his team's insignia. Examples are the coffee mug, key holder or even bike plates. Make the gift even more personal by putting his name or initials on it. He will surely love your thoughtfulness and maybe spare you some ribbings for an indefinite time.
Another sports fan favorite is the hooded sweat shirt or more commonly known as the hoodie. This gift is ideal for your teenage brother, who will definitely love wearing it over and over again. Having his team on his sweater will show his love for the game.
If, however, your brother is now more of the corporate dresser, sports team cufflinks might be more to his liking. Increase the bar of his sophistication by giving him a cufflink capturing his team logo in sterling silver. He is not only sending a message that he is a big fan of a sports team, he is also making an elegant fashion statement! And he has to thank you for making him look clever in a suit.
If your brother is more of a techie, he will surely love to receive computer accessories. A mouse pad is simple but useful. Make it more interesting by having his name on it. A USB bracelet is also a practical gift especially if it is still a student. A laptop accessory kit can also be handy for your techie brother.
If he is more of a gamer, a game certificate might work for him. You do not need to choose the game for him, he can choose it himself. Or a headphone might be more to his liking, and yours as well. A headphone will muffle out the sounds of his game so that you can have more peace and quiet at home.
If he is a movie buff, a lot of collector's items can easily be availed. From t-shirts to action figures to clock radios, these items capture your brother's favorite movie. It would make an interesting memorabilia for him.
Your brother will love your gift when he knows you took your time to find a fitting gift for him.
