Depending on budget, headphones or some fancy replacement pads for ones he uses , skin for performance notebook , mixer or MPC...little things but he will always remember while using it.

- Ironic sunglasses and hoodie?
- Slipmats?
- Obscure (therefore cool) T-shirts/baseball caps with obscure band/manufacturer logos.
- Right-angled USB cables (that's what I'd want :) )
- Laptop protector/sleeve
