Gift for a "better off" family member

Hi all.

What do you buy for someone who can afford to buy themselves pretty much what they want?

I need a gift idea for someone who doesn't really have any hobbies, it needs to be ordered online as we live apart and doesn't cost too much as cash flow for our household is a bit tight at the moment. So any ideas for a male in his late 20's.

    A gift experience? Some of them have quite big discounts on at the moment. If he doesn't like what you choose it can then be exchanged.

    You need to define "doesn't cost too much" - you could be talking about anything between £5 and £50.

    Yes a voucher for what you can afford. Lots are in that situation these days - but don't rob yourself to try and impress.

    If money's tight, how about putting together your own page of "things which happened in the year you were born", printing it out and framing it? Sometimes personalised gifts are much nicer than flashy shop-bought ones!

    or you can get a reprint of the front page of a national newspaper from the day he was born for about £25

    Thank you for the replies. I didn't have the time for making a personalised gift myself but maybe next year. I went with a cinema voucher.
