It's not all about work, include some fun too

The life of a dj may seem very exciting and to an extent it is, but the long, late hours, and constant exposure to the party life may take its toll in some ways. Your gifts don't have to be related to his work at all, he must have other interests that you can explore. It may be a fun job, but it is work and at the end of the day he may want to sometimes switch off, and will also appreciate a gift that isn't entirely related to his work.
