I thought this 'Ice Breaker' pack was an incredible idea. If you look at University forums they are full of tips and things you 'must' bring -- so why not compile some of these ideas in to one gift pack?
Some of the items in this pack would certainly come in useful for a student -- such as a pack of cards, a shot glass and door stop. Some I find slightly confusing, such as the 5-foot high inflatable banana. But as a way to start talking it would be slightly more original than 'do you want a cup of tea?' whilst sitting awkwardly on the end of a bed, grasping for conversation starters.
Of course, it does contain one of the most useful items a student could want. A bottle opener.
