I'd like to send some fun treats and useful things to my 17 y/o nephew who is just about to start A-levels.

I thought I'd get some crazy sweets. Any other ideas?

Put them in a clear pencil case smile

Mug, hot chocolate sachets, chewing gum, pens, highlighters, a see-through pencil case (do they have to have one of those where you are for state exams?).

Asked DD what she'd want in one, and her reply was;
Mark schemes for all papers grin
I'm guessing things to make them comfortable, pens, clear pencil case, mints, stress ball etc.
Made DD one in yr 10 and shoved a large jumper & a pair of leggings in there for her to lounge about in while revising and to make her feel more comfortable

thanks Maybe, voice of recent experience there. Not sure my 6ft2 Dnephew would wear leggings...

^ he might

A digital watch, if he doesn't already have one

Pen grips to make writing for hours and hours more comfortable

Also definitely a digital (or analogue) watch
DD has refused to get one but she'll regret it when she's squinting at the clock in the hall

If you are feeling generous, my teenager loves his noise cancelling headphones. Great for when younger siblings are being noisy and he's trying to revise.
