Ideas for a quality birthday gift.

After a recent move and seeing the amount of "junk" we had accumulated together we are making an effort to buy quality over quantity. Help me find him a budget friendly birthday gift.

Some examples include a recently purchased pair of Chippewa boots that he thoroughly researched before buying. The important things to him were the craftsmanship and history associated with the brand. We are slowly accumulating crystal bar glasses. He aspires to some day own a high end piece of furniture, with an Eames Lounge Chair being the Holy Grail.
His birthday is coming up. In the past I would have stocked up on kitschy items from Think Geek and Perpetual Kid, but that isn't our trajectory anymore. My budget ($100-$150) doesn't really offer the opportunity to buy him most of the things he currently covets.
What are some things, in my price range, that are classic, quality, heritage items? Anything from clothing to furniture will do. Antiques/used items are no problem.
