@miksje130:  I was going to say a plant (maybe for her garden) but that might be difficult to transport.

Do they drink?  Perhaps some beer for the first night in their new home.  I know that when I move, I always look forward to a beer at the end of a day.

EDIT: If there’s a craft beer that’s made in your home state, that might be even more fun!

I know it’s not super creative or personal, but a gas card or Visa gift card with a short note of appreciation? Something to help her with her drive. If you know her tastes, a book on tape, music or itunes gift card for her to buy her own.

Maybe a scented candle? Or you could get her some seed packets for flowers or herbs – they could be wrapped in a tiny package to be easily transported, and she can plant them once she’s settled in.

I would agree with a gift card or something like that.  As someone who has moved several times, the less stuff I have to fit in, the better.

It might seem impersonal, but I would really value the thought that went into getting me a gift–and getting something that fit with my plans.
