Siblings can be hard people to shop for sometimes, especially brothers. While sometimes it can be easy to pick out a gift for your sister, selecting the perfect present for your brother is easier said than done. After all, after everything you and your brother have been through together — backyard antics, vacations, super special late-night hangs and the occasional fight — you want to find the perfect gift that sums up how you really feel about him. In other words, you want to show him how thankful you are to have him by your side (even though you still find it slightly annoying when he drags on about how he is mom and dad’s favorite kid). So whether you’re shopping for your big or little brother, or someone worthy of the title, consider one of these unique gifts for brothers to remind him just how much you love him.
Need some ideas? Opt for a personalized gift if your brother hit a big milestone this year (a new job, perhaps?), a funny gift if he has a killer sense of humor or lean into the unknown (a video game controller holder, for example) if he’s the guy who has everything. Just in case you and your siblings are teaming up for a joint gift this year, we’ve included a few more expensive (well, splurge-worthy) ideas that he’ll love. Plus, if you left your shopping to the last minute, most of these gift ideas ship in two days or less, thanks to everyone’s old pal Amazon Prime.
