If you have to leave someone whom you love most in the world, what would be the best gift for him/her?
A letter telling them how you feel about them and what makes them special, or if time allows a journal of your time spent together with photos and writing about your life together.
I agree with 2uesdays letter idea, as this is a constant reminder to your special person about how you feel about them. Equally, I think some material signs of affection could also be relevent. Even if it isn't valentines day, roses are the most symbolic sign of love. The issue with these is that they will eventuall die, so a more suitable option may be to give them a long term possession e.g.a special ornement
A clear, unambiguous statement of your intent to leave. Preferably a polite one that doesn't cause unnecessary pain, but sometimes that's not always possible...
Seriously. Anything like a gift or a message saying how special they are will only confuse them ("if he/she thinks I'm so special then why is he/she leaving? Maybe he/she doesn't really mean it. Maybe he/she's just testing me." Etc. Etc.)
I just read the OP again.
Personal question: if you still love them, why are you leaving?
I thought the same thing. Is this departure voluntary or involuntary? If it's voluntary (leaving because of incompatibility), I would give nothing. What's the point? If, however, it's involuntary (such as leaving for military service or a job assignment that's far away), then I'd offer something like a locket, ring, an endearing photo, etc.
A journal with my most recent thoughts as a keepsake to remember me by.
My gift will be the time which is more precious from any of the gift and on that time we will recall all of our remarkable moments which we spend together in past.
If, for example, you're my lover and are hurting me by leaving, the best thing you can give me is something I can tear up into a gazillion pieces when I move from grief to anger. Because if I am still in love with you and you are leaving me, the last thing I need is anything that will give me hope or keep me from falling out of love with you.
If you can't just leave, leave an apology for the way things ended.
If you are leaving because of work or war or weeks/months of treatment in a distant hospital, then anything that recalls special moments you enjoyed together would be nice. A photo album with your comments, memories, words of love, etc. - that kind of thing would be my preference.
