A gift

What is a good travel gift?

I have a friend that is going to teach English in Kenya for 3 months. She is having a going away party and I would like to ask if anyone has any suggestions of an inexpensive bon voyage gift I can get her. So any ideas? Reply to this

funky travel journal
small photo album with pictures of your city, her, etc that she can use to show people when teaching English.
a travel toiletry bag packed with goodies including travel-sized toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.
gift certificate to your local bookstore so she can buy a Lonely Planet/other guidebook if she hasn't already.
small gift bag of her favorite food items - hard candy, certain soft drink, that she can bring with her if possible, that she would miss while gone.
a better money belt (if she doesn't have one already, or if she has one that is bulky and awkward).
travel gadgets: inflatable neck pillow, travel clothesline, motion-sickness bracelets

Why not set her up her own Travelblog site? You decide on the name and put up a picture and an intro. Then, a few days before she goes, take her to a computer and show her her new Travelblog!
