What's a good christmas gift for a video production nut for under $250?

My parents want to know what I want for Christmas, and I have no idea. I am open to anything that would help make my video's better and/or easier to shoot. Any suggestions?

Manfrotto 3021 tripod + 501 head = ~ $300

I know, already a little bit above the $250 limit. But still a pretty good deal. B&H also has some setups like this, and sometimes even used - that could save some money too.

Wow, there are a lot of things.... how about computer accessories?

Pair of 5" studio monitor speakers
firewire drive(s) from $100 up depending on capacity
RAM upgrade for your computer
I saw a 19" widescreen LCD for $200 the other day
Wacom graphics tablet

Or for that matter, just visit B&H Photo's website and you will have no problem finding $250 worth of stuff that you want :-)

(BTW, please don't post links to vendors unless they are DVinfo sponsors)

I have a bunch of stuff...a couple drives and a Wacom pad.

I was thinking something big on the production end that I couldn't afford to buy while I'm going to school...but thanks for the imput. A new External HD might be in order. :-)
