In two weeks it is my sibling's 30th birthday. He lives in Japan. I live in Western Europe. What can I get him? Inspire me!

My older brother turns thirty in two weeks. He lives in Tokyo, I live in Amsterdam. We are both British. I can't think of anything suitable to get him. Inspire me, mefites.
He likes: art (ranging from Rembrandt to Dali, not Hirst), socialising (food, drink), and film (Kubrick, Kawasawa). I'm equally as happy buying an experience as an object. My budget is around €100 ($125, ¥10000), but can easily be stretched for the correct present (doubled, etc.).
Original thoughts include: meal voucher(s) for him and his girlfriend at a nice restaurant, an annual/quarterly museum or gallery pass, an iPad for better communication with me and family back home.
