Gift suggestions for Florentine Males, age 28 and 32

I am leaving for Italy in 3 days and need some help on choosing a small gift for some friends there.

There are two sons in the family and one is 28 and the other 32. I need something small and very easy to pack. I have known the family for 11 years and always bring a small gift for each of them but I am having a hard time this year.

Any input - especially from anyone in this age group and / or living in Italy - is much appreciated. I am running out of time and am totally out of ideas.

Thanks and all ideas are appreciated! My budget is under $50 each if that helps.

Anything leather - belt or keyholder. Or a nice tie. As you know well, you can find loads of differently priced items within that range.

Have a great time in Italy!

You can't get a GPS within your budget I suppose . . . ? No young Italian fellow can be without one . . . or two or three.

I cannot get a decent GPS for less than 2.5 x my budget unfortunately.

Are ipod Shuffles popular there? I know they are new and exciting here but wonder if that would be an appropriate gift for that age range?

I don't know any Italian males of that age who don't already have an Ipod. Is it useful to have two?

The Shuffle is a bit different and brand new. It does not need to be charged at the wall, just plugs into a USB.

I am not sure how different it really is but is very popular here - I have a ipod NANO and have never used the thing so I am out of my depth here. I hate having anything in my ears.

Any more suggestions are gratefully received!

One should be able to find a famished adolescent who will be delirously happy to get a hand me down ipod after the elder relative gets a shuffle - if need be.
