Diseased means to have a disease.

Deceased means to be dead.

Some interesting points in this thread.

Can I just point out that the word "Gift" in German translates to "poison" in English. Mere coincidence? I think not.

May I conclude, based on this information, that miss angela_ is actually trying to poison her best friend?

Back on topic; I like the idea of photos too. Always makes for a great gift! Depending on how often you see/talk to your friend, a night out with just the two of you is always a great idea :)

I know this is going to sound "old fashioned", but they are coming back into style...

What about a charm bracelet or necklace? Start with the bracelet/necklace chain and one charm that represents you or your friend. Every birthday (or Christmas too, if you exchange Christmas gifts), give her another charm for it. Or, if you have a group of friends - one gets the bracelet/necklace and the rest get a charm they feel represents their relationship with her.

I still wear mine (from high school years) and my aunt's (which is ~60 years old) that I inherited. (Not at the same time!) People give me compliments about them and consider them "retro and so cool".

The best gift I ever got was from a girlfriend. She had an expired chequebook, which she covered in wrapping paper, and wrote out all the cheques with, well, I'll leave it to your imagination.

Maybe not such a good idea for a friend though. Might strain things a bit.
