What can I get for my son who just got into Harvard and Stanford?

My son really does not care about stuff, he has a watch, ipod and laptop computer. I just want to give him something special to commemorate this achievement.
Tell me something that you have gotten as a really memorable gift. Or some ideas that you think would be good.

    Special dinner to celebrate, frame acceptance letters, buy a sweatshirt from the school store and give it to him?

  • Gift cards that he can use while at school for supplies, clothes, etc I like the idea of framing his acceptance letter. A cell phone if he doesn't already have one, then he can talk to you whenever he wants to.

  • Maybe a small HDTV & Xbox 360(so much more than just a game machine) with a year sub to Netflix.. Than he can get whatever movie he wants/needs when ever he wants. With the XBox he can watch the Neflix instantly on the TV

    A Visa giftcard
