I'm totally stumped about what to give my brother for his birthday. He's my only sibling, so I do like to send him something. Normally it's not this hard, but I'm totally drawing a blank.

I think I'm going to frame a picture of DS (his first nephew) for his desk at work. But then I'm not sure what else to do for him.

In the past we've given him tickets to sporting events (they live in NYC, so we've done Mets tix before and concert tix, etc.) But his travel schedule for work has been crazy so I don't want to risk that. And I'm not sure I could find any good deals on that stuff right now either, since I haven't been paying attention online. I've also sent clothes - casual shirts, mostly. He hates to shop for himself because he doesn't want to spend the money on stuff, but he loves getting that stuff and always wears it. But I really don't have time to shop and really would rather not order stuff online sight unseen. He won't use gift cards for clothes, either. Hmm...

DO you have any go-to gifts for guys?

My go to are giftcards:
Newegg.com, Amazon, Itunes, MLB.com, Ticketmaster, or a local favorite restaurant.

No good ideas here, I always struggle when it comes time to buy guy presents. I find that they usually buy everything they want for themselves.

If he likes movies or music, maybe gift cards for iTunes or NetFlix? Or maybe a Nook or Kindle, if he likes to read (they would also be good for a traveler).

Ya, guys are really hard. :oops: e do Land's End gift cards for clothes but since he won't use that, that is no good lol.

Glad the newegg will work - that is a great idea, I will have to remember that!
