    I hate buying presents for boys as its so difficult.

    It's my brothers 28th next Friday, he likes football, beer, poker, movies, fishing.. the usual boy stuff really.

    I normally just give him cash but I feel that's a bit un-thoughtful.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    hmm, what about a TV DVD box set? I got Entourage box sets for Christmas and really enjoyed them! Then my brother got me season 1 and 2 of Mad Men for my Bday and im slowly working my way through them, and its a really good show.

    Or what about a cool Tshirt? Theres some great shops now, and websites that do really nice designs for a decent price.

    something from firebox maybe?

    alternative things
    bonsai tree
    range of alcoholic drinks to try (not usual stuff)
    fishing line/tackle etc
    get him a new movie or box set as suggested - try to widen horizons with 'different' type of movie

    Although having said that I'm 30 and to be honest if he's anything like me he won't be too bothered about lack of a present.

    The Inbetweeners season 1/2 box set.

    Great laugh and only a tenner.

    Jeez tackle...a bonsai it's wild in your house. You krazy guy, you.

    Booze is always a good stand by.

    Well personally I'd rather have a bonsai tree (a decent one is over £100 with some easily reaching over £1000) than a few pints of beer etc (ignoring I'm teetotal).

    Fishing tackle etc soon adds up you know.

    And besides, you don't have to have fun with ALL presents, sometimes something that is functional or you can get a use out of is better than something that will be gone by the end of the day ie booze.

    Personally, even though I suggested it (albeit in a try new stuff way) I see booze as a present as pretty boring and obvious, especially considering you can go and get it yourself any day of the week.

    But then again I couldn't see the point in presents once I hit 25 as most things in 'present' range I'd just go and buy it myself if I wanted it.

    Apparently that one can work off the car's cigaret lighter... not sure the availability of a cold beer while in the car is a particularly good idea!
