    I want to get her something special/cool that sort of reflects our time here travelling.
    problem I have noooo ideas haha!!' we have photos together but not enough to do a scrapbook or anything !

    yeah I thought of that but would be hard for her to carry around once she travels back to Europe.. thanks though maybe I can do like a mini scrapbook. such a hard thing! hoping someone has a cool idea I haven't thought of!

    I've seen some gorgeous hand made passport wallets on Facebook and thought they would make a good gift for a traveller

    What about a little passport sized album that contains photos of you both, but then also photos of stuff you did together/ enjoyed. Silly stuff - like a bagel, with a caption 'Enjoying the bagels on 11th Street', and then a pic of a show you went to together, and stuff like that. That way it's capturing the memories, but you don't need photos - you can print stuff off the internet.

    They sound awesome, can you link or tell me who does it so I can look them up?

    Opps sorry. Didn't read properly and realise she would be travelling. The photo passport wallet sounds great.

    How about a Photo Book?

    That way its still small and compact and easy to transport in luggage but you can get all your photos printed and write up some lovely blurbs but is in a cute book.

    If you google 'photo books' lots wil come up. DPs sis made one for his 40th and SIL made one for her kids. They look really good!
