Alright... on 10th of February 2008, my brother turns 14. Thats this Sunday. Problem is I have NO idea what to get him. I know there are 13/14 year old guys here, and older guys maybe help with what you'd like at that age?

His interests are: Halo, dragons, martial arts, and Halo.

:( Anyone have any idea what a good gift idea would be?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send?
And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

Probably a Case for his Ipod, if he has one.

No, he doesn't have an iPod, and I don't even know what ITunes is... I doubt he does :(

As far as martial arts go, does he have any specific interest (i.e. does he practice a specific art, are there certain weapons he favors, etc)?

If a gift in that direction is looking like a possibility, I know that Century is a fairly good supplier.

Buy him a Halo 3 t-shirt from Hot Topic. xD. That's what my friends did. Lol. Or, any other first-person shooter game for whatever consoles you have. That's what I always get my younger brother [he's 12]. It's the safest way to go, and if he doesn't like it, we just give him the gift receipt to bring back to the store and exchange it for a game he does want :D.

Perhaps a gift card for a local video game retailer?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send?
And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

I was hoping for a thing... not like a gift card or money :(

Like an idea in that direction....

An inexpensive belt display might not be a bad way to go - you should be able to find one that isn't too shoddy for somewhere between $20 and $40 with a bit of effort. It'd be meaningful, (fairly) inexpensive, and something he'd use (or at least see) on a daily basis.

You should get him an interesting book. Go to Borders and find one on a really odd/interesting subject.

Clever idea, if this 14-yr-old is that type of intellectual person.
If I got my brother a book for his birthday, I think he'd smack me. Lol.

Buy him a DVD, CD, shirt, or video game. You can find DVDs and CDs for $20 and under at places like Best Buy. Nice stores even carry shirts for $20 or less. I'm not sure how expensive video games are, since I'm a girl, 21, and don't play them. ;) Does he have a favorite restaurant? Get him a gift certificate for that, if he does. Of course, when all else fails, just give him money and let him pick something out. :)
"Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that."
--Ephesians 5:1-2 (The Message)
