Original Gift Present Ideas Brother

Let’s face it; siblings don’t always get along. Whether you have a close and peaceful relationship with your brother based on mutual respect and love, or whether you’re at each others throats at every encounter, it’s needless to say that he deserves a good gift from time to time. Here are a few ideas you may not have thought of.

Something Destructive

If your brother seems to have a lot of pent up aggression, why not consider a gift that will help him channel it away from you or the family pets and onto something vaguely constructive?

Inflatable Boxing Gloves

These giant novelty boxing gloves are a lot of fun and will look hilarious, especially if your brother is particularly small or skinny. Simply blow them up, slip them on your fists and let loose on the nearest source of your frustration. Thanks to the inflatable padding they should not cause any injuries but caution is always advised before mercilessly pummelling people. A pair is very good value for money too and you can even buy two pairs for less than £30. So if your brother sees himself as a bit of pugilist, give these oversized face-pounders a go. They should go down a storm.

Breakboard Challenge

We’ve all seen the videos of karate masters chopping through 4 inch blocks of wood with nothing more than their bare hands and some well harnessed energy. So if your brother fancies himself as the next Karate Kid, this is a must have gift. Reusable wooden blocks are connected together with smaller plywood chips – the more chips you use, the harder it is to break. Hours of fun can be had, and no bones should be broken in the process.

Something Jovial

You should have a good sense of humour when dealing with your brother, even if it does mostly involve winding him up. Here are a few gifts that will help you do just that.


The joke ASBO comes as a certificate complete with envelope. This means it will look like an innocent gift voucher as your brother opens it, already enthusiastically planning what he will spend his newfound wealth on. There are a range of different certificates to choose from including ones for ‘stinking of booze, ‘farting’ and being a ‘clever dick’.

Personalised Joke Newspaper Article

These make fantastic gifts, especially if there’s some particular embarrassing incident you would like to remind your brother of. There is a long list of template joke articles to choose from or if you’re feeling creative you can write the entire thing yourself. It will be delivered looking like a genuine newspaper front page, complete with a photograph of your choice. An extremely versatile and highly amusing gift.

Something Cool

If your brother is lacking a little in the cool department, then it is your duty as a loving sibling to do something about it. Here is a gift that should do the trick.

The Book of Cool

This package should be just the thing he needs in order to help him work on feeling smooth and looking suave. The book comes with a 3 DVD box set containing instructions that will enable him to learn hundreds of skills and tricks designed to impress people, from flashy trick-shots in pool to risky skateboard and BMX maneuvers. With over 9 hours of footage and 320 full colour pages, he should be able to find at least one thing that will take his interest and help him on his way to being a cooler individual.
