I need help picking out a gift for someone very special to me
Okay, my friend Tracy and I have known each other since college. When we first met we hated each other, then one day (We're both reporters) covered a story together and have ben great friends since.
After college she and I moved to respective small towns to begin our careers. I always used to stop in her town on the way to mine and we'd go for dinner and stuff. We became very close. Then I got a job in a town just 45 minutes from her town (on her reference). And we got to hang out even more.
She eventually got a job in a bigger city not too much further away and we still saw each other, just not as often... but then a couple months later she tipped me off about a gig in radio (I'd been looking to break into it) in that town. I got that gig.
We ended up getting a place together with another reporter and after that reporter left her boyfriend moved in. It has been a great year and we've become even closer and I respect and admire her more than she'll ever know.
Well, I just got a new gig and will be moving to Vancouver while she stays here with her boyfriend.
I really want to get her something meaningful to give to her when I leave, but I can't think of what.
Any ideas?

1. If you have any photos & silly mementos from your daze together

a comprehensive scrapbook or framed collage would be a treasure.
Shadowboxes are great, too.
