    For those saying I should just ask I sent him a WhatsApp 2 days ago and he didn’t reply (pretty standard according to my brother!).

    At the moment I’m thinking about sticking an iTunes voucher in a card and getting some sweets to unwrap. If his own parents don’t even know why to get…

    Would he ignore a phone call?

    If he can't be bothered to respond to someone asking what gift he'd like, I'd be inclined to just stick some money in his birthday card and let him do what he wants with it.

    I always wonder why relatives can't ask parents or the birthday boy himself about what he expects to get? Don't tell me that it ruins the surprise. It's always better to get the thing you expect so much instead of a useless game or another gift adults consider good for you.
    In this case that's what the OP did.
    Parents didn't have a clue and nephew ignored a WhatsApp message.
    His birthday was at the end of last year.
