A little more info would be helpful here
How old is he?
What's his style?
Should it be utilitarian or fun?
etc...?

Agree with perfume but I find that whilst Diesel Green comes in a cool weed-killer style bottle it also smells like weed-killer. Much prefer Gucci Rush and YSL Opium Homme.

Maybe a nice wallet... ?

Or some expensive cufflinks?

I would get a groming kit, for a guy friend. Guys need to take more care of their skin..
