Of course! I think it is the mannerly thing to do. You can say that you never get any when you go away so therefore you would not buy them one but just because your friends have no manners does not mean you should not. It is a very thoughtful thing to do.
Also, would you not want a gift that when you looked at it made you think of them? Do to them as you would like to be done to you.
It does not have to be expensive but it should be something that they would know came from you when they looked at it 20 years down the road and had found memories when they did look at it.
