This post probably isn't about what you think it's about. Oh well.
My niece/nephew is about a year away from going to college (well, I hope, we hope!) and has a birthday coming up. And it's really hard to think of things for a birthday for this kid. To be honest, that's great, because hir parents have enough money to provide the necessary stuff and more, and do.
So I'm thinking, what should a soon-to-be college student get for hir birthday?
I, too, have a summer birthday. And between high school graduation and my summer birthday, I got some really great stuff for going away to college:
electric typewriter! (Yeah, not so much now, but it was helpful then.)
stapler (I still have it and use it in my home office.)
pencil sharpener (still have it, but mostly use mechanical pencils these days.)
luggage (well, a big steamer trunk. My sibling got regular luggage, though.)
dictionary (again, still have it, and still works well for most dictionary tasks.)
Help with ideas, please!
