Mark, it would probably mean a lot more to him if you were to carve one yourself. you can get a starter set of carving tools pretty cheap. The hardest part is just getting started. Do a search for something you like, and try to use that to inspire yours. You may find you have a hidden talent yet to be discovered in yourself.
I did my first carving back around 1965, so I know it isn't rocket science. If that dumb kid,,,,,,,, me,,,,, could do it, anybody reading this can, ;>)
