Customized/personalized sketchbooks/journals as a gift?

One of my closest friends is embarking on a little trip/adventure soon. It's totally out of her comfort zone, and I'm incredibly proud of her. She has, also, been through a lot in the past year and a half - bad relationships, eating disorders, and lots of self esteem issues. She's on an incredible (I believe permanent) upswing. She's, well, back.
Her birthday is coming up in about 3.5 weeks. I would like to get her a personalized sketchbook/journal that she can take with her, and draw as needed or write in during her trip. I don't want to just put her initials on it, but include a quote, or lyric, or something personal.
I'd like to not spend more than $40-50 (because I'm kind of a poor grad student), but there is some wiggle room.
Are there any sites do you recommend? Where should I look? Where are companies that do services like this (in this time frame)?
