Is your going-away gift budget topping out at $5 … including taxes? Fear not—this handy-dandy idea is a homerun for the less-than-crafty set. Just raid your parents’, grandparents’ or your own trunk for something called an “atlas.” (A local map once used for scouting yard sales will also work.) Grab your toddler’s scissors or some comparable shears to cut out an accurate shape of the state. Then pull out those five big ones and purchase a simple frame to house your creation. Voilà!
We’re all Americans, but those regional variations are what make the United States such an incredible place to call home. With fifty unique shapes to choose from, these charming pendants give props to local geography and may test a few admirers on their state-guessing skills. Going away doesn’t have to mean trading in your hometown personality or homegrown accent. Show pride in your roots and never forget where you came from.
Many people, when faced with new surroundings, forget to eat and end up perishing from malnourishment. This is a leading cause of death among travelers and those who have recently moved. A gift card at a great restaurant not only reminds them of the paramount importance of calorie ingestion, but even pays for some of it.
Treat that special someone to a night of unbridled fun and mildly sinful exploits. Give those screaming bachelorette partygoers a run for their money and don’t head home until you spot a few ladies of the night. This final outing has got to break some records and brand a few amazing memories onto their brain before fleeing the scene of the crime and trading in this life for another more exciting undertaking. Pack a few party favors for the crew as well as a reliable, fully charged device to document the evening. Break-a-dawn, baby!
After the stressful experience of packing up all their belongings and leaving their home, they will no doubt need to unwind and decompress. Encourage them to put the moving boxes down and immerse themselves in their new community. Do a little research and find an event in their new town and get them a couple tickets. Remember, it may be hard to see them go, but it’s even harder for them to adjust to these changes.
If they’re relocating to a big city, navigating the public transportation system can be challenging at first, especially if they’re moving from Podunk where they took their car everywhere. Help them get where they need to go like a real local with a prepaid subway or bus pass.
Having a best friend to rely on is one of life’s warmest comforts. Right on its heels is a cup of hot coffee. So go ahead and combine the two for someone who’s going away, lest they forget all about you. People have short attention spans these days, you know.
These candles are formulated to smell like your home state. Good thing nobody told them that when you’re home all you really smell is burned turkey and your brother-in-law’s beer farts. This is more like the idealized version of your home smell, the kind of false memory someone wants to take with them when they leave.
