When he goes to college, will he be living on campus? Or at least away from home near campus?

Does he already have a laptop? If not you can find some really good deals online. If he has an ipod or something, a docking speaker might be nice. You can always pick a gift and throw in a safeway card. Also see if he needs plates or pots and pans.

But my best suggestion is pick something that you two have shared interest in. Think back and go for something personal, I know that when I left for college I wanted to bring some things that reminded me of home and the people there.

I agree with MW. Something to remind him of home will be appreciated when he's homesick. And also get him things he will need. Even though it's not very personal, a gift card to ikea or target will go a long way for someone who needs to furnish a dorm/apartment. A gift card, along with something personal that he can cherish would be the way I would go.

If he is a relative, or you know someone really close to him, you can get some if his old t-shirts and make him a quilt with them. Or just a homemade cut and tie blanket in his favorite colors, or his new college colors.

That's a really cool idea with the t-shirts.

I love making cut and tie blankets. I made one for my boyfriend for his birthday in November. He liked it so much that he brought it from our bed to the couch to the office. So I made another one for "home" for Christmas. And I made one for my mom for Christmas.
Noneya, there are so many fleece pattern options available now. You'll be able to find something that strikes a chord with him. JoAnn Fabrics always has lots of fleece, and lots of coupons!
