The Imbiber

If your brother has a taste for the hard stuff and a do-it-yourself mentality, treat him to a personalized whiskey barrel. Handcrafted of American white oak, this 2-liter barrel will bring the traditional art of aging alcohol to his home. And with his initials and name engraved on the side, there’ll be no mistaking whose liquor is inside.

The Gourmand

A birthday happens only once a year, making it the ideal occasion to treat yourself to an indulgent meal — and, to us, nothing is more indulgent than the classic combination of seafood and steak.

Give your brother the pinnacle of fine dining on his birthday with the premium pairing of succulent lobster tail and tender filet mignon. And no birthday feast is complete without a bottle of wine to wash it all down with.

The Reluctant Decorator

Whether your brother’s office lacks décor, his home needs a little greenery, or he could just use a little good fortune, the gift of a money tree is a fantastic option. These hardy plants not only have a reputation for bringing luck, but they also add a natural visual intrigue to any space. Thanks to these plants’ long lifespans, your brother can enjoy this gift for years to come, too (though that doesn’t get you off the hook from having to buy him a present for future birthdays).


The Model

We’re not talking about having your brother strut the runway. This gift is for the brother who enjoys building models. This wooden grand prix car is self-propelled and functions like a real one. Just press the “On” button, listen to the engine roar, and watch as this sleek speed demon chews up the road. Or floor. (Warning: Do not put this car on a real road.)

All these extra treats provide the proverbial icing on the birthday cake (see what we did there?).
