Gifts for a chef?

My older brother is a chef at an Italian restaurant... does it make sense to get him something food and cooking-related for a Christmas gift, or should I assume he has everything he wants or needs? (I don't see him very often, so I'm unsure of this.)

Any suggestions for a gift? Last year my family bought him the Alinea cookbook, but no idea if he uses it or references it.
