In search of a thoughtful gift

[Gift Filter] I have been scratching my head for weeks in search of a thoughtful birthday gift for my husband. He is about to turn 29 on Tuesday and I still have not come up with anything.
More about him: He is athletic and loves playing & watching sports. He likes to travel and loves trying new restaurants and cuisines. He dresses well, likes reading the New Yorker, and is not interested in home goods/furnishings.
I have already bought him a portable phone charger as a practical gift since he will be traveling more often in the new year. I would really like to find a gift that is more fun to receive. I have thought about experiential gifts such as cooking classes or event tickets but I could not find anything appealing in Philly. I was also considering some alternative-fitness courses but could only think of rock climbing.
My budget is approximately $100. In previous years I have gotten him gifts such as a nice shaving kit, a fountain pen, cashmere sweaters, ticket to a basketball game, and an iPod. I have also looked through this previous question
for inspiration. I am posting anonymously to cover my tracks!
