Well, my best friend in the whole, wide world is moving from Oregon to North Dakota on the 17th. Other than the two people she's leaving with she won't know anybody there, and I know she'll be missing her friends and family here terribly.

She's also turning 21 a few days before the move, but she's not a big drinker so I'd prefer not to get her anything booze related.

You would think that knowing someone for so long would make it easy to pick out gifts for them. Unfortunately for me, I'm running low on ideas. So far I've got:

-Digital picture frame or collage/album of photos of friends & family, maybe each one with a message for her.

-Phone card or minutes, depending on if she will have a track phone.

-She's a musician, so maybe something related to that, i.e. guitar supplies, recording software, etc.

-A new journal, as she writes constantly.

...Yeah, that's all I got. I'm a terrible friend.

Any ideas?

Awesome idea!

How about hanging out a bunch before she leaves as well? Gifts are nice and help you remember faces, but at the end of the day memories of time spent together with your friends and loved ones are what keep you going.

I think the photo album with messages is a very nice thing. Maybe get that and the journal.

The photo album and a journal, the phone card thing's a terrible idea.

I had a feeling this was going to catch on.

how about mix your ideas into one?

a customized journal with the cover featuring a collage of pictures and music themes? ... and put the phone card inside the journal

good luck!

We will definately be hanging out. The day before she leaves we're planning a big day, then that night we're going to wander our old neighborhood until 3am cuz we used to do that all the time.

Get her South Dakota so she has something to bargain with when the native Northerners don't take kindly to her.

Not to bash on the musical instrument idea, but when I was moving I remembered hating having to pack more things because of large size/space requirements from airlines. Which is why your phone minutes idea was brilliant...

Maybe in the new journal, give each of your friends one page to write something on (their favourite memory together, maybe). Then write in and explain that the blank pages are for her new memories.

Make her a big dinner, just the two of you, candles, music, charming conversation. A tension will build up all night resulting in the best sex of your life. You'll fall madly in love and she won't leave, eliminating the need of a farewell gift. Sorted.
