Ideas for gift for supportive friend

When my husband left I had a friend who helped me emotionally. She's been so great for 3.5 years.
I'd really like to do something nice for her but I don't have heaps of money. Maybe $100.
She's going overseas soon too and I thought I could also pit together a nice travel pack for when she's flying.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Cheers

If she's staying in hotels overseas you could call one and arrange some goodies for her for when she arrives. Maybe a nice bottle of wine or a voucher for room service or a massage

You know what's really useful? Small bills and coins in local currency. Disposable ear plugs for flying and a coloured or distinctive tag to pick up her luggage easily. And a lovely written message about how much you value her 😊

 Im sure a lovely written message would mean more than anything you could buy.

You could buy her a travel diary and at the front write a lovely Bon voyage type message.

 I like this idea.
Your friend woild probably keep this for years as it would have sentimental value to her.
Would cost you very much either ☺️

Getting away from the travel theme you could have a nice day together before she goes or when comes back. Check out groupon for amazing deals on places to eat or a spa day.

I have a really nice crossbody bag that has cut proof straps. Was about $85 but hard to steal for travelling.

I travelled for 3 years and I used the most- a passport/ticket holder/wallet, a pouch to put under clothes for money etc, travel guides/books, padlocks, luggage tags, a cutlery sett and stainless steel straw and little washing bags for my clothes.

A travel document holder, holds your passport, airline tickets etc..was a great present when we went overseas.
