Employee leaving... gift ideas?

I have a coworker who is leaving in two weeks and I'd like to get her a going away gift. When you've left a job, did anyone give you a parting gift? We are friendly and have always had lunch a few days a week. I will miss her.

She's a young mother of three and is leaving to concentrate on her college courses.

I have a whole thread on this, just posted today.

Maybe something for just her? Mani/Pedi, massage, bottle of wine, gift certificate to a gourmet store.

The best "gift" I got was dinner out with all my co-workers on the last day when I left one job
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

If you had lunch that often, definitely a card saying you'll miss her, and maybe a giftcard to a coffee shop near campus, or some little ' pamper herself ' item you think she'd like.

What we usually did was getting one of those chocolate gift baskets and customized them to the likes of the person. So far every person liked it when they got one.
gift card to a store you know she likes.

when i was leaving my job at the research lab years ago, my department chipped in and i got a $100 gift card to The Bay (Cdn version of JC Penney) - best gift EVER!
