I'm thinking of things in the do-it-yourself category for hobbies. A collection of modern art sounds good-its something that's not duplicated up in the attic, like a collection of snuffboxes or whatever. Collecting coins or stamps(ARE there still stamps?) might be a bit narcissistic. So many of them will have his picture. The only thing is, with an art collection, I doubt he can go out cruising galleries and openings or attending auctions. He'd have to do his looking or bidding online, from his desk. A messy sort of hobby would at least get him out of the office, even if the workroom is just in another wing of the residence.
