Gifts for 22 & 23 yr old guys?

I've been saving money ever since summer for Christmas shopping. I go to college and I have barely any free time with all of the homework I have. Luckily, I do some small work for my mom's company when I'm not completely buried in school work. I'm not one of those crafty people and I'm not the best at baking, so I know I want to buy something.

My budget is 50-100 dollars for each of them. My boyfriend is the 22 year old, and my brother is the 23 year old. I could always get them a couple of nice shirts or something, but I don't think that seems genuine or well-thought out. I want this Christmas to be really special, especially because it is my first Christmas with my boyfriend. I feel like video games have been so overdone as well.

Both of them like sports, but what can I do with that? I don't feel like handing them a football and a basketball each is exciting. I think most guys have owned plenty of footballs/basketballs in their lifetime.

Can anyone give me any suggestions?! I'm not trying to be picky at all, I'm open for any ideas. They are both typical boys and I'm sure anything will work. The only thing they might not be too fond of is tools, they are lazy! hahaha!

You mention they like sports. Do they have a favorite sports team or player they like? You could get a them a team jersey or hat.

Maybe for your boyfriend a ticket to great match? I don't know how expensive that is over there, but here, you oculd easily go to a sport match for that money and get some fan-articles to make the present look more exciting! The best thing about having a boyfriend is making great memories together, so he'll be thrilled to go with you

For your brother maybe get a jersy like Christmas-A-Holic suggested...? Or maybe get him a set of great cd's, my brother is that age and he always likes to get music... maybe as they like sport some winter sports gear...? My brothers always are freezed when they get back from sporting in the winter, so i'm getting them (all 4 of them :P ) these:

it's a base layer to wear under there sporting clothes, i think i'll also get them some cd's and i'm thinking of something personal to go with it, like maybe set a date to get our picture taken with all five of us (as we don't have decent picture with all five of us)
hope i helped...

Is there a particular tv series the boys in your life like? You could get them their favorite season on DVD.
I 2nd the team jersey idea. That's a good idea.
Maybe tickets to the games?
Let us know what you end up deciding on!! This is fun!! LOL

From a guy's perspective, I don't think a nice shirt or sweater is a bad call ... If your two guys hate shopping for clothes like I do they might appreciate getting clothes. The team jersey idea is solid as well if they have a special team.

I think tickets to a sports game would be a nice idea or how about cologne for your boyfriend? If he likes wearing cologne..that was always one of my top gifts for my boyfriend (well Im married now) but my prior boyfriend always liked cologne too. You can sometimes get a gift set for cologne around the holidays for a little bit of a cheaper price. Goodluck. I am sure they will be happy with whatever you decide to get them

Thank you all!! I love the sports shirts idea. Both of them are obsessed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so I can look for a team jersey for the both of them. I love the tickets idea, too, I can see how much the prices are for that. I'm sure they'd love going to a game! I totally forgot about cologne as well. My boyfriend wears it all of the time and I myself am starting to get tired of the same one that he wears, so getting him a new one would be perfect.

Do they play paintball? If so is there a place in your area in which they could go, and play paintball? Maybe you could pay their entrance fee or give them a case of paintballs to go along with their certificate.
