    Well, it's that time again. [​IMG]

    My dad was remarried about three or four years ago (I wasn't invited to the wedding, so I don't remember [​IMG] ) to a woman with two kids of her own. A boy a little older than me, and a girl four years younger.
    My stepmom and stepsister I have gotten to know fairly well, but my stepbrother seems to want nothing to do with me. Therefore, I don't know his interests, likes/dislikes, et cetera.
    Now, I know some of you are going to say, "Gifts are to show affection. You feel little affection for him, so don't get him anything."
    And I wouldn't, except that I'm giving something to everybody else, and it would a) slight him, which I don't want to do, and b) look awful. [​IMG]

    So does anybody have any surefire (or close) gift ideas for an incredibly anti-social teenage boy? [​IMG]
    Thank you!

    Itunes gift card? Gift card to whatever games teenage boys play - xbox?

    Quote:iTunes would be a good idea. I think he has a working iPod right now, though that's never a for-sure thing. His iPods like to die. [​IMG]

    Do you know any places that he likes to eat or hang out? Maybe a gift card to that place. With a nice hand written card?

    I agree with the iTunes card. People can do wonders with an iTunes card [​IMG] (Although most people I know nowadays download songs off Youtube [​IMG])
    How about a T-shirt? You can get some nice (and cheap) guy's T-shirts with funny messages on them at most department stores... my dad loves the darn things even though he's way past the... ahem, bloom of his youth... [​IMG]

    Yep, some kind of gift card would be the best bet in this case.
