What do you think is a good gift for my son going off to Stanford?

I just want to give him something that is good but useful. He is going3 3,000 miles away to school. So I am not thinking of things that are necessities. Some thing for him to think of us or home or fun.

  • A rechargable gidt card. Of all the things my son used and needed the most was the rechargable gift card.

  • laptop, iphone, mp3 player, giftcards are good too. send him monthly care packages. I remember my first year in college...I loved getting packages from my parents.

  • I love all the things mentioned already and most of what I'd think of is already listed, if you want to add to it any, you can send him off with a digital picture frame chalked full of all kinds of happy moments he's had growing up with you guys. The previous posters have given many great answers though :)

  • monthly care packages are the best things that you can send to your son. He knows that you are constantly thinking of him when he gets those packages every month (even though are always thinking of him anyway).
