Brilliant!

Does he need any tools? Does he mechanic or wood work? If he does I wouldn't choose the tools for him, I would get a gift card and let him choose. I know some people think that is just a way out, but many guys are picky when it comes to tools and you would want him to actually use them.

I also like Zardoz's idea

Am I the only Trekie that also likes tools? I always browse the tool section when I am at any store, just in case I see something that could come in handy one day.

I agree, the best thing you could get him is probably some "close time."

After that... power tools.
