IF you don't have one already: A Dremel. Perhaps the cordless one. They're kinda cheap....

I once had a PS2 die the day before warranty was up... I'm not that against them.

Personally, I think warranties can be good, b/c if the warranty is almost up you can drop it from something and get a new one! :D

Oh the Dremel .... My Arch Nemesis...lol
The first dremel i got was found in a cubboard at my school, it was dusty and never gets used so i took it home, i diddnt have a power plug or a battery so i had to hook up 2 9V batteries but it only had one drill bit so that was usless

Then two days ago i bought a nice new dremel set with 26 Accesories, it was nicely packaged in an aluminum case, i bought it, took it home, opened it ...... and it had an American wall plug...... i tried using a shaving plug adapter and a travel plug converter but neither worked and i broke the shaver socket.

so basically Dremels hate me, even so i might get this one tomorrow

You definitely should consider a dremel, but otherwise it's aways a good idea to ask for those visa gift cards you can buy at convenience stores. They're great because you can use them online to buy pretty much anything.

Your suggestion of asking for the Visa cards made me think of this. It's just an interesting read.

hehe. It's different when they ask you what you want...but I'm still not so sure about asking for gift cards/cash.

Headphones? A nice Razor mouse, (they're not just for gamers) Or as Kiteman said, vouchers. Books? programming/3D Design &c.;

You're in the UK? Get B&Q; vouchers, then you can browse the power tools to your heart's content - their own range of tools is quite good value. Make sure you go to the largest branch you can reach, though, because the range in smaller branches is quite restricted. The largest branches also have interesting stocks of raw materials - metal and plastic sheet, all sorts of tubing.
