  • Think of what a student can use: pens, a day planner or Palm device, a stapler, a calculator, a package of cool Post-it notes.

  • Choose things that you know he or she will use, such as a prepaid phone card, stamps, an address book, address labels and bookmarks.

  • Look for things that are fun like a Slinky, Pez dispenser, yo-yo, and gift certificates for CDs.

  • Consider items that will be handy, but aren't necessarily school-related: a pocketknife, a journal, a coffee mug warmer, a new wallet.

  • Go with a theme. Try several small picture frames, a camera and film. Or choose hair accessories, makeup brushes and perfume.

  • Try movie passes, video-rental coupons or gift certificates to online and offline merchants.

  • Find a magazine that is in the student's field of study and order a subscription.

  • Remember that video games are still an option - if you can afford it, get the student a new Sony Playstation 2 and he or she will have the most popular room in the dorm.

  • Stick a note in his or her stocking offering a night out on you.

  • Keep in mind that cash is always handy.
