Okay, they are leaving, whether you like it or not.

A brand new MacBook Air is what they want - tiny, fast and sleek. And, you know you don't want your child going out late at night to print that paper they wrote at the very last minute (you know you procrastinated, too), so here's the Canon All-In-One printer/scanner/copier/fax machine, enabling you to sleep at night and them to get that paper in on-time. Your student will be ready for those all-nighters in the library with a pair of Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise Cancelling Headphones, and they'll be able to stay awake with all the coffee and tea they'll be able to brew in an instant on their Keurig Mini Single Serve. No time to make coffee? No problem! They can use the $25 Gift Card to Starbucks. It's going to be sad watching all of their stuff leave your house, but at least you can help them organize and settle in to their new space with this $50 Gift Card to Container Store. Before you know it, they'll be on their way home for break with a $200 Gift Card for Southwest Airlines!
