What should I get for my friend's boyfriend? It's his 19th birthday do next week, and I'm invited. I don't know him that well, but the three of us used to hang out occasionally whilst at our previous college. From what I've gathered, he likes clothes and subcultures like Mod, Indie and Skinhead. There is a book he said he wanted that I have, which I'm considering giving to him (it is in new condition) but am not sure if I should get him something else instead.
