Sibling relationships can be complicated, with a mixture of love, rivalry, loyalty and independence. The factors that develop love and compromise come from living together, and in later years, the shared experience of childhood. As well as experience, siblings also share about 50 percent of the same genes.
The relationship between a brother and sister is special. Despite winding each other up and arguing, they also stick up for each other and have a unique understanding. So if you are looking for a present for your brother, you have a better insight than other friends and relatives, who are asking around for ideas. If you find it hard to breakdown the options, here are some categories to help.
Relive Outdoor Family Games
Remember when you and your brother were outdoors in the summer looking for something to do? Or maybe a family picnic where dad packed games in the car to play later? Your brother will love you to pieces if you buy him a cornhole set. The popular game keeps family and friends amused for hours. You can find customized sets from companies like cornholeworldwide.com, so you can find him a design that has personal meaning from you. And the game will last; the cornhole board is durable, so if things become a little rowdy when your brother and his buds organize a game at a party or trip to the park, the game will survive to be played another day. Some versions come with lights for an evening party ice breaker.
Something to Tickle His Funny Bone
There is unique humor that is only present between siblings. While your brother may think a funny gift from somebody else as corny, if it relates to a private joke between the two of you, it’ll be a hit. Find something that can be personalized with a witty statement, like a shirt or mug, or something loud but subtly worn, such as socks, or tie with funny print, novelty cufflinks or other accessories that highlight your shared sense of fun.
If your brother fits into the “guys and gadgets” category, then you have plenty of ideas to browse through; you may need to do some research to check that whatever the gadget, he hasn’t already bought the latest version. Anything “smart”, phones, watches, or anything for a smart home will certainly impress. “Sound” presents another area of possibilities, speakers, headsets, iPods. Power packs, docking stations and chargers are always useful since he’s so reliant on his electronics.
Something that Fits the Two F’s- Fashionable and Functional
An old saying is that the only thing you can change about a man is his wardrobe. So your brother may be comfortable in cargo shorts, a beer T-shirt and a week’s worth of stubble, but as his sister, you probably have a good chance of suggesting something more dapper. This gives you a whole range of gift ideas that people less close would get wrong. Sharp shirts and smart pants, accessories or grooming products: give him something fashionable and functional.
As a sister, when finding something for your brother, you have the advantage of a sibling bond. The present you give him is an extra layer of meaning that is more important than the gift itself.
