My spoiled younger brother is home for Christmas and I've got nothing.  I've got like no money and well for him money is no option.  There's some song lyric he's all about, "If it ain't Gucci it don't look good on me."  And he means it. 

What's worse is his only hobbies are college boy hobbies, drinking and women!  He is into his car, working out, I thought maybe etched beer mugs, but I'm blanking on what to etch!  He likes to watch movie with his friend.  So I was thinking of a movie in a box sort of thing.  But I need another gift also because, Christmas day is also his birthday!

I can knit and figure just about anything else out.  I'm not a good machine sewer, sewing machines despise me.

You could give him a coupon for a car wash (so you'll wash his car someday), or you could make him a bag to carry his workout clothes, or knit him a scarf (even if it's not Gucci, scarves are pretty much useful and cool anyway), or you could buy a tequila-shot glass and decorate it on the outside (with leather, fabric, paint...).

I saw this idea in a different thread, and thought it was a great idea.

You could etch the glasses, or paint them ...

Put that quote on a shirt or a journal or something for him.

Wow, such good ideas!  I am going to give him that tic tack toe shot glass thing!  That's awesome.  Anyone know where to get plain shotglasses?  Last year I gave him a car wash kit.  He LOVES detailing his car.  And I wish I could put a quote on something for him, but literally he only owns designer clothing.  The only thing he wears that isn't designer is a shirt our mom gave him last year for christmas.  It's from Jackass beer or something and it says, "That's MR. Jackass to you!"  He has a Victorinox workout bag.
