How sweet of you!  I think the movies are a good idea – maybe also books on tape (if he doesn’t read, he still might like to listen).  Depending on what kind of surgery he had, his diet might be restricted – maybe a fruit basket?  Does he have a laptop computer or tablet?  Maybe he might like a computer game.  Good luck!

You don’t say the kind of surgery, but if he will have trouble bending over after he is mobile again, one of those ‘reacher/grabber’ things is great (i found that out the first time after surgery that i dropped the tv remote on the floor and had absolutely no way to pick it up).  If he uses a smartphone or tablet, mabe a gift certificate to buy some fun apps?  If he does puzzles, there are a lot of online games like words with friends, scrabble, etc. If he is older, they still sell paper versions of suduko, crosswords, etc.
