Birthday gift for a history buff?

My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up, and I’m a terrible gift giver. He likes history, documentaries, trivia, etc. Any ideas for something unique?

    Hmmm....  What kind of history does he like? One of my brothers is interested in history,  mostly- local history (where he was born). I found some great history Etsy stores that deal with maps. You may be able to find replica maps mounted in a frame, etc (or just order the map and have it framed yourself).  I'm attaching one link just to give you an idea : https://www.etsy.com/listing/872011332/michigan-ma...

    You can also enter in historical gifts in the search box on the Etsy homepage for more ideas.
