Nintendo Switch or PS5
If your sibling loves video games, see if he has any particular consoles or games on his wish list. The PS5 was previously sold out for months and has only just returned to stock, so this may still be on your bro’s wishlist. Consider contributing funds to a PS5 or games they can play once they get it. Maybe your brother is a PC gamer, in which case a computer monitor or LED lights for his gaming setup might be a great idea. Finally, if your gaming-loving sibling doesn’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, he’d probably love one. Even if you’re not a gaming expert yourself, the Nintendo Switch has beginner-friendly games so you can play together.
There are plenty of unique gifts for sports bros, techie bros, artsy bros, foodie bros, and everything in between. Just be sure to consider his personality and interest in finding a worthy gift for your amazing (and lovingly boring) sibling.
