Default Gift ideas

Alright guys my brothers birthday is in a couple of days and I need some ideas on what to get him. He is a senior in high school and has a sailboat he uses whenever he can. Im not looking to get him anything real big but something like nice pliers or fish grips ( he has both). Any help is appreciated.

Spend a day with him, enjoy each other.

Do something that he wants to do.

I’ve gifted some of the Connelly pliers recently and they were a big hit. Maybe a Boga Grip.

A West Marine gift card. He can also redeem it online. How big is the boat? What is your budget? Can get a hand held VHF or a fixed mount VHF ~ $100.00. Pair of binoculors? Rigging knife with shackle key and marlinspike. Tide clock or tide watch. Clinometer is also helpful and under $50.00.

This! My brother got me a nice benchmade knife a while back. It was a great gift for a guy who has everything. So I bought my nephew one a few months ago after he graduated boot camp. He's thanked me several times since then.

Hookers and blow.

Take him to dinner and bond, dream of the future and what great things you'll do together.

(Then skip out on the bill)

Step it up just a bit. Good dinner and drinks is gonna be 100.00.
Get him a SPOT safety system. Like 150.00.
That way when he is sailing he is covered.

Ok, Don't do the hooker thing. Get arrested, Get an STD, Get robbed.

* Do you have a shooting range where you can both try out different guns.
* Do you have a race track to get him a lap or two at 150mph.
* Paint ball / Adult Air Soft is always a blast.
* Both go on one of those sling-shot rides then dinner.
* Late night comedy show, tell the "GM" ahead of time, each comedian will bring him up on stage and destroy him....only if he has a good sense of humor.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I think Ive found some large lures that he want so he can troll more. (Yes from his sailboat)
Also Im thinking Ill help work on his boat and our old bass boat this week when we drag them in.

As much as I would like to get him a call girl I think Ill stay away.
1.His girlfriend would beat his azz if she found out
2. I myself am a bit young to get him a call girl.

Id love to take him to get some drinks and talk but both of us are underage and wouldnt want to do anything illegal

Knives would be nice but he already carries a Kershaw and a leather man. He also has 2 or 3nice Damascus knives.
