What stocking-stuffer-sized gift can I get for my boyfriend, an aspiring teacher?

My boyfriend is currently in a teaching program, and next semester he will be doing six full weeks of teaching in an elementary school (likely grades 6-7).
I'd like to get him a Christmas gift that he can use when he teaches. Since we're only exchanging stockings this year, the gift has to fit in his rather average-sized stocking. Maybe sub-$50, but there is flexibility there.
He really likes being uber-organized, but I'm not sure what that translates into for a teacher, so any ideas for practical, and physically smallish gifts are appreciated!
He's still a ways away from having his own classroom, so it's probably premature to get him gift certificates to teaching supply stores, or things like that (suggested in the previouslies). And don't worry - I'm getting him plenty of not-teacher presents too!
