Birthday present!?

Hello
Since next week is my nephew's birthday I would like to buy him a telescope as a present. He is into this stuff and I thought it would make him happy... The only problem is I don't know a thing about telescopes. I've researched a bit and found some useful information here https://devices4home.com/best-telescope/ but I still can't decide which one to buy. So I wanted to ask you for some advice, can you tell me what a telescope must have and can you recommend some good models.
Thank you!

So my two cents. This will remove the element of surprise, but you could build that in. Take him shopping, make him part of the experience and pick the one he thinks suits his needs best. Either way, this is a nice thing your doing for him, good on you.
