    My best friend is going to university this year and I make her a going away box I'm making a scrapbook for her but want to put lots of little things in the box that will be useful/needed but also fun things if that makes sense. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Well, a box that can put tissue paper in case she gets a cold would be nice

    Might as well just stuff the box with tampons...

    What about little objects from inside jokes between you? Or stationary things like notepads, a fancy pen, a handmade pen pot or something? You could also buy her some photo frames and put pictures of the two of you in them or of all of her friends/family? What about one of those calendars that you can customise with your own photos so for each month you could put a different picture of things that will remind her of good times? Then she has something to remember you by but also something she can use

    I hope these help! Good Luck in finding something :')

    Door stop. So she can have her door open when she first moves in to meet all those flatmates. Most hall doors are fire-doors so will shut without a door stop.

    How about a kind of first aid kit? That way every time she doesn't feel well she'll still know you're someone she can turn to
