If you purchase X-Plane 10 as a digital download from the X-Plane website, we will email a receipt to you with your product code (which you will need to install the simulator). You could print that out as a voucher to wrap.
If you have any concerns about how well it will run on your laptop or how well your son will like this sim, you could start with the free demo. Here is a link to an image file or another image of the DVD that might be appropriate to print in place of a voucher.
