Gifts for brother to surprise him in a different way

Having a brother means having a partner in crime, a sort of best friend who knows you better than anyone else, who is going to be painfully honest with you and say the things you don’t want to hear but that you might be grateful for later.

With your brother you will share an endless list of anecdotes (some of the kind that will embarrass you in front of your friends), a lot of inside jokes and a connection of the kind you cannot share with anybody else.

So, when his birthday or any other special date arises, it is time you show him you truly care with a non-generic gift that shows you have spent some time and dedication to surprise him and make him happy.
