My middle son is turning 20 this Tuesday.  I am praying I will be well enough to bake his cake myself..but the even bigger deal is that for the first time ever... I am struggling to figure out what to get him. He honestly "needs" nothing.  He is not a very typical guy... very outside the box... if you know what I mean.  Any great ideas?

 How outside of the box are you talking?  My 17 year old can be described that way, too.  He likes your basic geek stuff.  The other day I got him a new flashdrive and he was so happy!  LOL!  For his birthday last year, I got him some video game inspired t-shirts.  None of his friends had them, so it was a "one of a kind" type of gift.

My husband is impossible to buy for.  My sister drew his name for Christmas and got him an Amazon gift card.....it was perfect!  He bought several books, a machete and some computer parts.  He was thrilled....she was thrilled that she actually got him something he liked.

Other thoughts....concert tickets? motocross tickets?  tickets to disney or some other place he likes?  A Southwest or other airline gift card?  Behind the scenes tour of some place he likes (brewery, etc.)?

I hope you feel better soon. Happy birthday to your son. Although I would have no idea what to get him either. My son is turning 25 on Thursday. I don't know what to get him. But he is a brat. So maybe I wont't get him anything!
