As a 20yo CS student I think I have some insight :p

  1. A nice tech orientated backpack. Perfect in the 100~ range and most people I know have old wreaked packs from like 10 years ago.
    A stylish and tech oriented packs:
    I really like their design and they also have some chargers and laptop sleeves
    My personal pack! Really simple and incredibly durable:

  2. Pokemon Sun & Moon or obviously any other video game he may have not bought already. Pokemon cause it just came out :p

  3. Smart watch. Depending on your price range you can go for the lower end Pebble Smartwatch or shell out a little more for a Moto X 360 or someother one. personally i think the Moto looks the best and mine works great

  4. Portable battery packs are always a lifesaver. I like Anker for their quality but Aukey is good too and slightly cheaper.

    Message me if you want specific recommendations cause I know pretty much everything techy :)

I'm a programmer. This is my most favorite keyboard I've ever bought. It's mechanical, but the "clickity" is perfect, and low travel (it's 69.99... and 59.99 for the one without the number pad). They list a few options, but the one's that I find great have "Kailh Latest Low Profile Blue Switches". Also the back lighting is really nice.

I don't know what language he's working with, but this book is excellent too. Many of the examples are centered around java/C#, but most concepts apply across many languages. It motivated me to explore further after reading, and to really polish up on my skill set.

Maybe look into purchasing tickets to a cooking class! Depending on where you go, prices will vary, but it could be a neat idea :)

The Gift of Nothing is such a memorable, sentimental book, and I'm sure she'd be delighted to receive it.

These Night Vision Goggles seem awesome and might feel like xbox come to life?

If he will be driving soon you could always get him an emergency kit for his car or other utility tool that might be helpful.

If he is like a lot of other 15 year olds and is glued to his phone he might like a portable cell phone charger

Another cell phone related OR music related idea would be an app store/itunes gift card for in-game purchases for phone games as well as music

You could also do some nice gaming headphones or perhaps new ear buds or headphones to use with his ipod or phone?

I second Thinkgeek. Love that place.

If you like to cook, some fun new kitchen toys? Like a vegetable spiralizer. I have one and think it's really fun. Examples:

Some of the new ceramic nonstick pots/pans? I like this little one for egg sandwiches/mcmuffins:

Coffee or tea accessories? Desk accessories? USB gadgets? (Visit a local office supply store for ideas?)

Star wars stuff? I bought this for myself:

Other Star Wars stuff that's fun:

Hey, you can create a list of things you like on Amazon, and share it with your family....

There's a whole bunch of great Harry Potter themed items out there so you should be able to find some cross-over items easily. You can check out gifts for Gamers & Geeks for starters on the Harry Potter stuff or click the Harry Potter tag for more ideas from that site.

As for fantasy books - my favorites are the Dragons of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey or the two 5 book sets, The Belgariad and The Mallorean by David Eddings.

I also fell in love with this cute soft toy at Ikea on the weekend - they have a whole range created from children's drawings so there might be something there for her too :)

Do you still need ideas, OP?

Consider Cajals butterflies of the Soul

It is an art-book that features lots of pictures from early neuroscience research. I'm not sure if that is the kind of thing she would like, but as a Neuroscience student I love it. If she is less into art and more into Academic neuroscience, how about a good neuroscience book? Kendel's Principles of Neural Science is the 1800 page bible of Neuroscience, and everyone going into the field should own a copy. But, unless she actually studies it, it might be far too in depth. It is not for people with a Passing interest.

Alternatively, depending on her particular interests and level of education in the field, something from this list-

Oh this is a fun one! The five finger death punch online merch store has non-clothing items. I’m kind of a fan of this neon light. Any neon light would be awesome for her bedroom, like this do what you love one. Or these guitars (ok, done with the neon now I promise! I love it though!). Continuing on the decor theme, wall art?

More ideas:

Adorable yet functional ffdp tote

Interesting book about the history of metal

A little pricey, but great for any music fan and budding creative

heavy metal coloring book...I couldn’t resist!

Ear plugs to protect your ears at shows but are still cool...ish

How about something to relax like this gorgeous soft throw, luxe candle, and cozy crosswords book? Or if she prefers boozing over crosswords, you can include a bottle of her favorite drink and perhaps this beautiful set of stemless glasses?

A good device for making great coffee is an Aeropress - it's really portable, doesn't need power and is about thirty bucks. If she doesn't have one, might be a good buy.

A nice desk lamp perhaps? You can get some cool, unique ones from Etsy, refurbished vintage and inventive ultra-modern ones. Something to write under into the wee small hours.

u/hyunbun · 2 pointsr/GiftIdeas

I would recommend the aeropress. It has replaced my drip coffee maker. It takes as much time and attention as a drip machine, and produces phenomenal coffee. Also super easy clean up.

Wreck This Journals

She makes a bunch of different versions. They might be more in stores but online they usually $10

Are pretty fun for all ages and genders. If you conduct an image google “wreck this journal ideas” you can see how it’s “meant to be done, “but there is no wrong way. :)

u/GuyNoirPI · 1 pointr/GiftIdeas

How about a Cricut machine? Among crafty people it's considered a pretty cool thing. You can do a ton with it, from scrapbooking to mug making, to wall hangers. Also, they've been on sale a bunch on Amazon I've noticed.

What about one of the Fujifilm cameras?

Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 - Ice Blue Instant Camera

I was given cash for my birthday and bought one for myself. I'm 20 and use it all the time. I love having a tangible photo. This would allow your boyfriend and his kids to do something together and give them something to hold onto.

Movie tickets for date nights
Bifl backpack
Book: Med School Confidential: A Complete Guide to the Medical School Experience: By Students, for Students
Cookbook or cooking class
More practical: Darn Tough Socks. These are the best socks with a guarantee.
I’d browse r/bifl for ideas

Penguins have been my favorite animal ever since I read "Mr. Popper's Penguins" in 2nd grade (circa 1992, probably).

Has he read this book? There's a Jim Carrey movie, which totally delivers as well.

Amazon link to the book

I hope the link works. This is the first thing I thought of. It’s one of those sequin pillows but when you brush it the other way it’s Nic Cage

There's a brand new Neil Gaiman book coming out this week.
