Birthday present help

Hey guys,

I need help with ideas for a present for my male cousin who will be turning 22 this July.

This will be the first time I will be getting a gift and also I will be missing his birthday since I am leaving to travel.

I just dont want to give him money.

bottle of liquor, itunes gift card, a t-shirt, tickets to a ball game, a concert, or some other event, .... if he's working, a tie, gift card for dinner... with no idea what yoyur cousin likes, or how much you want to spend, it's tough.

Hmm. A bottle of liquor and a box set of his favorite TV show might be a fun, laughable, yet appreciated gift.

Didn't see that coming!

Concert tickets, game tickets, favorite team's jersey, gift certificate to his favorite bike (or whatever hobby) shop? Gift for cousin? Never done it. The pocket knife idea is actually a pretty good one.
