Gift For A Teenage Boy

Does anyone else have a hard time coming up with gift ideas for boys? Specifically teenage boys? 

My teenage brother never helps me out much, just grunts "Dunno" whenever I ask what he wants. So this year for his birthday, I did not ask. I took Mum's advice and made him an iPod case. He is into all things farming, (when I asked his favourite colours, he said yellow and green as per John Deere farm machinery) so hubby suggested I make it out of leather. But considering I do not have the equipment, materials OR skills required to do leatherwork, I decided brown felt was the next best thing.

The "T" is a bit wonky. Oh well. I made up a new design, with a pocket for headphones (the small 'bud' kind that he uses), with the one elastic band to be used for both button closures.

I hope he likes it!
