What to Give That Rascal Brother of Yours, Sister

You and your brother are opposites in many ways. There's the obvious point (he's a boy and you're a girl.) Then there's how he’s into camping, and you love glamping. He loves a good steak, and you splurge on a coconut kale smoothie. What’s the trick when you're searching out gifts for someone who's not a whole lot like you? Focus on what makes him different! Here are gifts for your bro that are just in line with what he likes.
