My nephew is graduating high school and is headed to Washington DC for college! What would be a unique and useful gift to give him?

I can afford to drop about $50 on this - I remember when I moved away to go to college, I didn't want much because I wasn't moving too far from home (and could easily go back to get what I needed), but he'll be far away from family.
He wants to get into politics someday (and I believe is pursuing a PolySci degree initially) - a course I claim to have partially influenced through some strategically-purchased Christmas gifts/books. But I've only been to DC twice and don't know what a hip uncle would give him that will be a memorable and useful gift!
