Default I Need Your Ideas, PLEASE!!!

I am counting on all you super creative SCS friends to help me with a project I want to do. My 21 year old daughter just got a huge promotion and is moving out of state. (okay, I am bragging, but I am VERY proud of her!)
I want to make her a Survival Kit in a paint can, and need ideas of things to put in it. She is going to be managing a big health club, and moving into a new apartment, so I am thinking of cute things along the line of being a "boss" and a new home AND family missing her, etc, combined. I am really excited to get started, and need all your creative karma!!
Thanks so much in advance!!

A picture of her siblings in a cool stamped frame. Disposable camera to take pictures of her new place of work and her new home. Gift card to Home Depot and/or Linens N Things for those odds and ends. Maybe stamped dishtowels (depends on if this will be her first place she has lived after leaving the nest.)

How about a pack of at least 8 "I've moved - change of address" cards?

How about a calendar with all the family birthdays, anniversaries, special events, etc...marked on it, along with an assortment of cards for her to give? Along those same lines, maybe a little address book with important family addresses and room for her to add her own?

Default Survival can ideas

One thing I love to make is address labels, you can print her out some new address labels with her new address and stamp them....
Maybe make her some stationery or cards to match the labels? Don't forget envelopes and stamps. I think food gift cards are a good idea, especially since I recently moved and remember thinking "You mean I have to try to COOK in this mess?" LOL
Good luck to her and to you (can't be easy for your grown-up baby to be moving away!)
Peace & Hugs -

Jenn, you ARE a "Stampin Angel!" Thanks for reading between the lines and realizing what I am having a hard time expressing. This is real grown-up stuff for her, and I am going to miss her so much! I am so excited for her, and this idea is really to try to send lots of "Mom-Love" with her.
Thanks again for your sweetness!
Hugs, Alicia

I'll be praying for you and your daughter, Alicia! My oldest is only 16 but I get teary eyed just thinking about him going off to college. It sounds like your daughter is very talented and a natural leader. Managing a health club at 21...come on! I was barely able to manage my laundry at that age. You must have raised her well.

God Bless,
Michelle

Who said anything about her being able to manage her laundry?!?!?!!?

She is pretty awesome, and has worked very hard to get this recognition, HOWEVER, I try not to take credit for anything great my kids do, because then I have to take the blame when they do something bad!!

Thanks for sharing in the fun with me!! Much as my husband adores her, somethings are much better shared with other Moms!!

Many hugs,
Alicia

When I moved away I received a small sewing kit. Some scissors, assorted thread, needles, safety pins. I enjoyed having it because I didn't have any family around to sew my buttons on!!! (pack a few
band-aids in there too!!!!)

An address book wouldalso be very helpful !!!!
