what to get the 'hard to buy for/no sense of humour' computer geek brother in law

24
Posted 16th Dec 2019
Any ideas? Basically as cheap as possible. He has loads of money so doesn't really 'need' anything. He's a lovely guy but has very little sense of humour so 'funny' things won't really work. He doesn't drink either so alcohol (my usual go-to gift) isn't applicable either.

Any ideas?

well if he’s only a brother in law surely your other half or if he’s married to your sister they would have a better idea than random strangers on a bargain site...

He's really fussy with food too so I wouldn't really know where to start
Get him a funny shirt off of red bubble related to work.

Does he like anything like Star Wars, Marvel or DC characters, Game of Thrones, etc?

A white hat; a black hat and a grey hat? (Sort of computer security related humour-ey)

My partner is really poorly in hospital at the moment so I'm trying to do all the shopping myself whilst juggling two teens and a new baby. The internet is my friend.

Actually that might not be a bad idea as he cycles everywhere. Thanks
Any of the 'Dilbert' books. It's all pretty much 'anti-office' humour that anyone in an office will appreciate. I know you say he hasn't got a sense of humour, but in reality he probably just has a different sense of humour to you.
A life?
All relatives guaranteed to like this, very cheap for what it is, especially for banking

Get him a No Place Like 127.0.01 T-shirt.
The complimentary concept to : "what to get the 'hard to buy for/no sense of humour'

is, in reverse gifting, your brother-in-law could be asking about you:-

"What deal to get the unimaginative/lack-of-posting-deals ungeeked brother-in-law
box of ferrero on the deal section. everyone likes sweets
Get him a Rubik's cube
A gift card. One4All covers many bases.

Thats the easiest gift to get when you are struggling, or just cant be bothered to make an effort.
