That's Bigs for you. <The Case of the Spooky Sleepover>

Bigs Maloney said he hoped it would rain. That's Bigs for you. He's a stomping-in-puddles kind of guy.

What is the "for you" for in "That's Bigs for you."? Isn't it simply "That's Bigs.", which means "Bigs is that kind of kid."
What I know about "for" is...
- This is a present for you.
- I bought it for you.
> Here, "for you" means the same stuff. I guess the meaning is different in the sentence I don't understand?
