Difficult Brother

My brother is incredibly difficult to buy for. However we don't give cash as a present in my family.

He's turning 23. I've got him some ties off of eBay, and a Mario hat, that he'll laugh at then never wear. :p
He's getting into jobs at banks, he has a car but doesn't really care about it, I don't know if I can buy clothes for him without him being there. He likes computer games, but downloads or borrows most things. He works at a movie place so has 50 billion dvds and blurays. He's living at home so doesn't need 'house' stuff. He 'likes' to cook but then almost never does. :p He'll show off making hot chocolates with a milk steamer he bought, for example. You only very rarely see him make dinner. He doesn't read. He likes gaming, but doesn't like 'stuff' to do with gaming like figurines of characters.
He hangs out with friends a lot. Drinks sometimes. Likes Disney things sometimes. Recently took up tennis but his girlfriend gave him a racquet and he's only doing it casually.
He's so. so. difficult.
Help meee.

Maybe buy him a certificate from RedBalloon? (trimmed down to Adelaide because of your userinfo, I'm not stalking you I promise) Is he the type to like Skirmish? Could you and a few more family members put in for a larger gift like a winery tour or different types of driving tours. There's one on there for cufflinks, too, if he's getting into that kind of top-level business stuff.

A whole bunch of those teeny tiny alcohol bottles with like one drink worth in each done up like a flower arrangement.

They're pretty good ideas, thanks!
