Have you ever seen the great show Undeclared? It was a short lived but well loved show by Judd Apatow with all of your favorite actors in it, including Jason Segel. In one episode he makes his girlfriend/ex girlfriend a pillow case with his face on it to win her back.
When Ben moved to DC, I thought I'd do the same. Only mind isn't as elaborate:
Real me on the left, pillow me on the right, real ben hiding in pillow me.
In conclusion, if you ever need a gift, esp. if your significant other is going to be away from you for a while, this will be a sure fire hit.
