I've got a jar of dirt, and guess whats inside it!

Ahem...

So my friend moved out of my sh!tty little dirt road mountain town at the end of summer because her house was being remodeled and moved into some stupid townhouse in suburbia out in the plains. She really misses seeing this place and is having a hard time dealing with a number of issues. School, certain people, parents, the season. She's been really depressed lately.

So for Christmas I got the idea of giving her a glass mason jar full of dirt from our town. I really want to make her feel better in at least some way, and maybe having part of the town that she grew up in with her might help her through these times a little bit.

Would this make her feel better, or is she gonna think I'm a cheap dick for not getting her a real gift?

When I went on vacation and couldn't take my girlfriend I did the same thing (along with other gifts).

Edit: It's not really the same situation, but in my case it went over spectacularly. You have nothing to worry about TS.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

You should possibly give her another present, but that's probably one of the best presents you can give her under those circumstances. Great idea. There should be more friends like you.

the dirt is a good idea, but to be safe get another gift as well, or at least a really nice card with candy

I was hoping for a picture of a jar of dirt

But, honestly, that's actually a really great idea unless she is an idiot.

You should put a note in the dirt that says something like "Thinking of you" or "I miss you" or something that she will see one day when she is moving it around. She'll pull it out and it will be cool...

or not. Thats a great gift idea on its own.

I was thinking "I love you". I see her every day at school, so I miss you wouldn't make sense. Then again, we don't hang out as much any more due to all her IB class homework (part of the reason she's down. Man, **** school).

Or just a heart on a piece of scrap paper.

That's a lot of sentiment points. I would appreciate something like that so go for it.

I haven't seen you around much man, where have you been?
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Ahh that sucks man. I've been doing a lot of the same, but high school leaves more time for UG than college.
