Help a Mom: Graduation gift ideas

This question actually comes from the sister of a graduating senior, but it's a question that plenty of moms are wondering about too.

Graduation season will be here before you know it and one sister is on the ball.

Here's what she wrote:

This gift is really for my sister, who is graduating from high school, but I thought other moms might have or want insight. My sister has a lot of things (computer, iPhone, digital camera, car...) so she doesn't need a whole lot for college that she won't get from our parents. I was hoping someone might have a suggestion for a meaningful gift that an 18-year-old would appreciate. I might do a photo collage, but other ideas would be helpful!
I had one idea: I featured Julianne Walther, owner of Patchwork Memories, a couple of months ago. She makes T-shirt quilts which are popular graduation gifts. I'd love to hear other suggestions.
