That is the dilemma facing his wife Barbara every year as she tries to figure out what to give the legendary San Francisco 49ers' quarterback for his birthday.
Steve Young's better half organized a flash mob for her husband that included about a hundred strangers performing a spontaneous dance.
It started with a "fan" asking for an autograph and that spun into a dance number with dozens of extras.
Barbara not only organized the event, she was in the front row with the dancers.
Young's birthday is today, but the surprise happened a week back at the Stanford Shopping Mall (outside Bloomingdales).
TMZ posted a clip last week, but the one below is edited and supplies the entire story.
Happy Birthday Steve!
Young took in the scene with two of his children in his arms.
