I ordered a key chain that said 'just keep swimming' her name, and graduation year. Also monogrammed towels are nice. These are my standard go to items

 When my sister went away I made her a dorm gift basket, anything she might need for dorm living. It included a laundry basket, a sewing kit, flip flops for the shower, extension cords, an umbrella, a flashlight, a roll of quarters for laundry, laundry soap pods, a new fluffy blanket, a dorm room sheet set, because apparently 90 percent of dorm rooms use twin xl, air fresheners, a microwave cookbook and cleaning supplies with a little tote to put them in. There were some other odds and ends also like stamps. She loved it!

Scrapbook full of pics and momentous they shared together and on the last page a note saying call me anytime with her phone number.

You could get her a really nice picture frame and have it engraved with their names. You know, like a "friends" frame and then put a picture of them in it and engrave their names on it?
