A couple years ago I made my friend a Misfits stocking out of felt.  I'm not sure where it is on here but I posted it in the seasonal section.  Maybe you could stencil band logos on a messenger bag or if you can knit, knit him a little punk icon.

boy, oh, boy. i used to run with a crew of punk boys when i was in high school and i don't know if some of my ideas are going to be universal, but here's what i made them all one year: punk rock sock. i bought a plain santa stocking at the dollar store (but, if you are crafty enough, you can obviously DIY - no pattern really even required, and you can pick up a good classic plaid or leopard print fabric. another fabric idea would be to do bleach spots - have you seen those pants before, where you basically take your jeans out onto the driveway, put on a black flag tape and go mad throwing chlorine around? something like these: http://skinmarvin.co.uk/discussion/sboots13.jpg, we used to call em 'cow pants' because we did it on black jeans often..)

ok so, you got your stocking made or bought. now COVER it with pins, patches and the like. good source is AYP (www.angryyoungandpoor.com) you can search by band and most pins and patches are between $1-$3. don't sew the patches on though, just use safety pins so that he can take them off the sock after the holiday and put em on his pants, backpack, jacket, whatever. you can do the same thing with studs or spikes, buy them in bulk from AYP or even hot topic i think, and attach them to the sock loosely so they can be used later.

inside the sock i put stuff like a mix tape, box of (more!) safety pins, a few sharpies and blank canvas for making your own patches, whatever candy the boys liked, stickers, guitar picks, lighters, small roll of duct tape. if i'd been legal then, would have been brilliant to throw in a mini bottle of booze or cigarettes for those who indulge in them.

depending on how he does his hair, you could also make him a mohawk emergency care kit. i kept one around for my then-boyfriend in a lunchbox of some sort and it had hairspray, glue, mirror and comb in it. you could buy an old lunchbox and turn it into a hair care kit. sounds kind of girly but i'm sure you've seen how much time he puts into doing his hair up. just make sure you buy whatever kind of hairspray he regularly uses, some people are really specifically loyal to aqua net or rave or what have you.

hope this helped!

I know this is slightly irrelevant, but "Professional" hairspray at Wal Mart for about $2 a can is amazing stuff....I used it for my first mohawk and it took 2 days to wash out.

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

Oh, sorry I missed this! My boyfriend is the same, and his taste is incredible so I really have to pay attention. What about a wallet or a pillow made out of some vintage golf pants? A box for his vinyl lps covered in old shelf wrap? Or a bracelet from a cool old tie? A scarf knitted from vintage Kmart green yarn from the thrift store?
Whatever you did must have been great, you put a lot of thought into it.

i ended up just customising t shirts but he said he needed some so *shurgs*

one was free machined (germ free adolecent) and the other was bleached (real punks can't back comb) but i might do that hair cair kit for his Birthday (feb!)
