When they have everything and don't "need" anything, I love gift cards to their favorite store or mall.

I say if there isn't anything you can think of that he needs--or anything practical that he wants then gift certificates are always a good gift.

You might also try getting them to reach out to the community at this point in time. If they have everything they want or need, how about a membership to a zoo or science center or let them become a zoo parent and sponsor their favorite animal. My son loved this when he was about 10 or 11. He gets mail from the zoo with updates about his animal (a rhino) and gets Parent invitations during the year. Now that my dd is 10, she has hers also, she is a dolphin parent. This way, they are getting something, but it also benefits a better place and lets them feel they are helping out the community.

There are also magazine subscriptions, maybe there is a mag on a subject he loves! That way the gift comes all year round, not just once!

Sorry for the hat!
