Umm, it might be a little too obvious, but what about a travel theme? You could pick up some old suitcases and use them for decor or put snacks in them (inside of bowls of course, lol). If you’re super crafty, you could make wineglass charms out of paper in the shape of luggage tags.

or what about using the city she’s moving to as a theme?  that way the gifts could be like passes to the museum or movies or cool things to do in the city!

Where is she moving to?  Maybe you could make her new city the theme.  Or, are you all in Memphis?  Maybe it could be a Memphis theme.  Or a general Southern theme with Jack Daniels and Southern food.  Is there a certain sport she really likes?  Maybe you could make the theme the team of her new city?

You could use her new city  or state as your theme.If either of you, or anyone close to you has an AAA membership, go to the nearest office and see what they can give you -they have trip planning for members for free.

Otherwise, look up the city or state online and make banners with the state colors, birds, flowers etc or just hang maps on the wall.

 Ask each guest to go online ( as they really don’t have time for anything else) and find a website, an attraction or an activity that they think she would like. Print the page and after she has opened them all, place them in a binder you have purchased for her.

If you are doing gifts, they can also purchase a gift card from many coffee shops, restaurants , attractions in the area etc and print out the confirmation.

Ask each guest to bring a postcard with a message addresed to her saying what they have appreciated about her or why they will miss her when she moves away.

If that doesn’t grab you, does she have a hobby or special interest? Is she interested in music, sports, theater? Use that for your theme.

If you don’t pick Chattanooga as your theme and choose one of her interests instead, the guests can easily dress in that theme.

If you do pick Chattanooga, they could dress to reflect something from Chattanooga’s history-the first Coca Cola plant in the US, Glen Miller’s song “Chattanooga Choo Choo, a business or attraction in Chattanooga.

Failing that, they could also come dessed in a generic travel theme- tacky tourist, plane travel, hobo, cruise wear.
