Holiday gifts for a seminole?

My nephew goes to FSU and I'd love to give him something useful, for example Tallahassee movie tickets, cab fare, etc. Ideas? Where are the common movie or restaurant hang-outs for which he would love a gift certificate?

    There are both AMC and Regal theaters in town, and you can buy gift cards to either. They used to sell prepaid cab dollars. Try googling. There is a Chili's and a Denny's on campus, the Denney's is open 24 hours. If he drinks Starbucks, there is a full Starbucks on campus, and an Einstein Bagels. Around campus the chains that are popular are Moe's, Yogaberry. So many guys love Taco Bell (including D's BF) and they were selling gift cards recently. Panera Bread is close. There are quite a few local hangouts, but gift cards are tougher or nonexistent.

    A little further off is Miller's Ale House and Logan's Roadhouse. For a nice meal, you can use the same gift card to Bonefish Grill and Outback Steakhouse, and the Chil's gift card can be used at Macaroni Grill, On the Border and Maggiano's.

    That's some wonderful info about local eateries/etc. Thanks!
    (And whereas I'm sure singles would always be welcomed, I'd rather package them in gift cards)
