I'm half-doomed and you're semi-sweet

Well, I've just found out that one of my friends and her twin sister (who I'm not as well acquainted with) are leaving for college on Friday, and is having a going-away party on Wednesday.

I want to get them each a going-away gift, like they did for me last year. I know I should have some amazing insight on the things college students need, since I went away myself last year, but I'm drawing a total blank. I don't want to get any of the essentials that they will have already bought on their own. If all else fails, I may just try to knit something nice and speedy up for each of them.

So, what are some ideas for nice gifts for college-bound girls? If it's something I can knit or make myself, that's a big bonus.

Also, most of the other attendees at the party will be girls who have also just graduated high school, some of whom I know fairly well, and some I barely know. There's at least one other girl there who I'd like to give something to, but who I most likely won't see again before she leaves for college. Is it rude to give gifts to only a few of the guests, or should I just give gifts to the girls hosting the party?
