Gift ideas for 4 awesome female speech therapists in their late 20's-early 40's? They are nerdy and fun, and the budget is $50 each.

I graduated with 4 of the best friends I could ask for, and we are all speech therapists in different work positions (two are getting their phds, one is in the schools, and one is in a hospital). They are all female and young-ish (late twenties, and a very young 40).
We call ourselves "The Nerds" and get excited about speech-related stuff, and have inside jokes from grad school and technical speech terminology. We are spread over 4 states, so it's a big deal when we get to see each other. We are getting together over Thanksgiving to exchange presents for our "Nerdmas," so I have a few weeks to prepare.
I'd like to get them gift packs of something useful, fun, and unique. Price range should be about $50 each. Previous gifts amongst us have been personalized tote bags with "I heart nerds" on it, stuffed animal versions of microbes, Bananagrams games, the Threadless "Nerds 2X2 ever" shirts, and cute office supplies.
I'd like to get everyone the same general thing or collection of things, but slightly personalized for them by color or style. The best idea I have so far is a lunch container and lunch box from The Container Store, with some fun animal-shaped paperclips and some of my favorite treats from where I'm from. But, I think this seems too "momish." My friend already posted on facebook that she had purchased our gifts from ThinkGeek, so I don't want to buy anything on there. I looked over the Mental Floss store, but nothing struck me as perfect.
Ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!
