Good going-away gifts include personalized items, such as hanging signs, door mats, keychains and other small trinkets. Homemade items make another great gift for someone going away or moving.

Homemade gifts include scrapbooks, photo albums, or even other photo gifts. A scrapbook is a way for someone to make a memorable storybook because it is up to the creator to decide which photos or memories will be included in the book.

There are a number of online services that can create personalized keychains, blankets, paper weights and scrapbooks to give as a going-away present. Various photo websites, including Walgreen's, Shutterfly, New York Photo, Walmart, Target and Snapfish are good sources to create these items.
