so long, and thanks for all the fish

I'm leaving my job at an environmental foundation after 5 years. My last day is tomorrow, and the 15 people in the office are starting in a new office space on Monday. I'm probably going to write individual cards to a few people, but what's a good gift for the whole group? They're overstocked with chocolate, plants, and cut flowers.
