Well, if you are going to help the boys show off their organized card collection, this should suffice. Look out for some funny motifs, and if possible keep it in tune with your theme.
Now, who isn’t fond of huge mugs lining the table. A fine idea is to get your theme printed on the mugs, this way it will remind them of you.

Agreed, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but so are any sort of jewelry. Get your best buddies a pair of earrings or a necklace.
For the boys, you can even think of giving them printed tees. The best option is to get plain polo necks and get them printed with your theme.
A tad bit traditional I must say, but your young friends will surely appreciate a personal diary from you. Keep writing then, you budding writers.
