    I have a relative I’m close with who is celebrating his bar mitzvah soon. I’d like to get him a gift, something meaningful. The problem is anything I think of isn’t suitable. He won’t open any book I get him. Any judaica I get him will be ignored. He’s only into sports. His mom thinks I should get him a basketball kippah, but I’m not so into that, nor do I think that’s a substantial enough gift. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    As the title mentions, he’s not observant

    I believe Rav Miller Z’l once answered “buy him a shaver” (I hope this is not used as an opening by some to debate the halachic and hashkafic dos and dont of shaving).

    How about a “shafer” instead of a shaver. Also known as a shofar.

    I actually agree with the shaver idea. If you get him an expensive kosher shaver he probably won’t replace it with a non-kosher shaver. He’ll probably also be excited at the prospect of needing it.

    Get him to put on Tefilin even once.

    A Shaver is a good idea

    Shaver is brilliant. Utterly brilliant. You may be saving him from being oiver literally hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of lavin.

    Tell the kid shabbos and eating kosher are more important
