How to Select a Gift for Your Brother


Instead of the usual polo shirt or new tie, use your imagination to choose a gift your brother will really appreciate.

Things You'll Need

  • Bookstore/music Gift Certificates
  • Golf Lessons
  • Greeting Cards
  • Magazine Subscriptions
  • Concert Tickets
  • Health Club Memberships
  • Sporting-event Tickets
  • Theater Tickets
  • Power Tools
  • Theater tickets
  • Ask what he would like. If he has ideas, it will save you a lot of guesswork, not to mention shopping.

  • Buy your brother a new tool or a gift certificate to a home-improvement store if he's a handyman.

  • Give him a round of golf at his favorite course. Pay for a twosome.

  • Pay for a series of golf lessons.

  • Buy tickets to sporting events, Broadway plays, amusement parks or concerts, depending on his taste.

  • Give a year's membership to a museum or other nearby attraction.

  • Wrap up a year's subscription to his favorite magazine or a new one he would be interested in receiving.

  • Give a gift certificate to a bookstore, software store, golf or fishing outlet, or upscale clothing store, online or otherwise.

  • Buy a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant.

  • Hire a landscaping service to do his yard work for several months.

  • Pay for an initial gym membership - if you know that he's already thinking about joining one.

  • Choose a gift-of-the-month club. Each month for a year he can receive microbrew beer, software, fruit, cigars, wine or other goodies.

  • Give something personal. Collect information about your family history and have it put into a book, or copy and organize old family photographs to put into an album.

  • Make something. Use whatever skills you have to bake, knit, paint, sculpt, draw or craft a gift.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try to avoid gag gifts that will never be used. These items usually end up being sold at garage sales or tossed in the trash.
