What is the BEST NCO GIFT for Going Aways, Hail and Farewells?

I just recently changed over a change of command. My 1SG was my backbone and made me successful. I am looking for outgoing commander/1SG traditions/gift and I am unsuccessful in finding something that goes inline with some military tradition. I want to do something special and/or traditional... or I'll start one, but looking for something fun/meaningful to show my appreciation that is done from the outgoing Commander to the First Sergeant. Can someone help me out?

The Best Gift I know of is a Print Called THE BACKBONE!

I believe is the most meaningful and lasting gift that a 1SG or NCO can get.  They will hang proudly it proudly even after separation or retirement. This is a print and is also available in marble stone.

Top it off in a frame with signatures on the back and small comments from the whole unit or section/platoon, etc  and it is definitely a memory.  Here is the link to the GIPUBS.com page
