I would like to buy a DE-ENG-DE diccionary to make a Christmas gift to my nephew (17yo).
I'm not an english translator, so I urgently need your tips. Thanks.

I'm afraid that this is not specific enough. What does your nephew want to do with the dic, exactly? For example,

  • does he need a compact booklet for travelling,
  • does he need a large general dictionary for reading ambitious literature,
  • is he specialized in some subject (does he need a technical dictionary, for example),
  • does he need a tiny dictionary for cheating in examinations?

Without this information, this is equivalent to asking for recommendations for a vehicle, without specifying whether a lorry or fork lift is needed.
