Consider giving a child you know a box of "office" supplies as a gift. You can fill it with things like a stapler, tape dispenser and tape, glue, notebooks, colorful pens and pencils, scissors, erasers, paper clips, self-stick note pads, stamps and stamp pads, etc. This kind of gift can offer hours of fun playing office, store, library, and school, and may spark an interest in crafting and inventing. It will also supply items needed for homework and special school assignments. It may seem a little simple and a little unusual, but what could be more exciting than opening a big box and finding it stuffed with little treasures?

Great idea! Also a good gift for College students and older people in retirement homes.
I used to do this when my children were younger and they needed a gift for a friends birthday party. The child receiving it was always excited by it. They would ingnore the expensive gifs and keep going back to the box with all the goodies in it.
