Prior to Christmas I corresponded with other parents looking for ideas on what to give our Mids inasmuch as they cannot take much back. I believe my husband & I came up with a great gift and our son really appreciated it. We gave him an overnight stay in a balcony suite (large room) at our local ski resort, along with a gift card for a lift pass and food. Needless to say, he was able to take several friends with him and they had a great time. Hope this helps future gift givers as you may have a local "fun place". Just remember that if you Mid is not 21 yrs. old, you may have to actually go and do the "registration" and get the heck out of the way.
