When someone is moving, the last thing they need is something else to pack, so a gift card for sure. Just be sure it's for a store they have there; it's easy to check store locators online. It's a safe bet there will be things she'll need for her new home, and I'm sure she will remember you fondly when she selects something!

There must be SOMEBODY who knows her; find out her interests & get a coordinating gift card.

Gift cards are the best! Coffee drinkers love Starbucks, shoppers love Target, and all most everyone likes eating establishments. I don't think you can go wrong with a gift card.

I second the I-Tunes gift card. Or A gift card for Crate & Barrel, so she can get things for her new apartment.

If she has an iPhone, an iPhone gift card. If not, a Starbucks gift card or some other gift card if you have heard her mention stores she likes. I think $25 is a generous amount.

Ideas I have come up with in the past for gifts:
For about $20-$30 bucks you can get a popcorn bucket, video store gift cert ($10), 2 bags of popcorn with some popcorn flavoring, bag of candy and or a couple chocolate bars! Fun night in for a couple of people!
You could get a coffee mug engraved with their name on it.
Gift card for a mall is always good for someone in their 20's
Fuel gift card! Everyone hates paying for gas :) with a goodbye card of course!
Good Luck!

Gift cards are always a safe bet... or flowers or candles.... anything vague yet useful. I recently got someone a painted martini glass from the Hallmark store and it was a big hit. Hope this helps a bit.

One of my co-workers is leaving to move to NYC.

I've only known her since Nov so I don't know her personal tastes. She's early 20s.

Any suggestions for a gift to give her as a going away present?
