What do I get for the BIL that has everything?

He has no real hobbies except art, but he has everything he needs as far as that goes. Last year everyone got him art stuff. He used to really into his truck, but after the second baby, they sold it. He doesn't read much. He kind of has the see something I like I buy it syndrome. He says "surprise me" when asked what he wants and SIL isn't any help either. Any ideas?

  • A gift card to an art store so when he does need something he can just go get it.

  • I always say to get scratch off's or lottery tickets for the one that has everything. You don't have to spend a whole lot $10-20 and usually they love them.

  • Nothing, I wouldn't buy for him. Save your money and buy for your own immediate family.

  • make him a small gift basket, with some art supplies, a gift card, and little things here and there.. whenever i have to get a gift for someone that i dont really know, or know little about as far as hobbies etc, i make a little basket... or canvas, those are always liked, cause they are kinda spendy, or an art book...

  • Hello Mom1Stepmom1,

    How are you? Since you haven't a clue as to what to get him, Patrick Dempsey from Grey's Anatomy (Mc Dreamy) has just launched a new fragrance with Avon called "Unscripted".  I'm sure he wouldn't mind smelling good.  Here's where to get it

    If he's not into fragrances, Avon has a nice variety of men's items.

  • I sell Avon, so he buys from me. I was actually really unhappy with Unscripted
