Thank you guys for all of the input. I brought the basket of goodies down to her today and it went over well. In particular, the fruit was VERY appreciated, as was the notebook, and she's excited about the nail polish. She was less excited about the chocolates, but that may be because they are currently swimming in chocolates and truffles of all kinds that people brought yesterday. Heh. I also stopped at Whole Foods on the way down and picked up lunch (chicken tikka naan sammiches), dessert (strawberry shortcake) and coffee (by request). There was much rejoicing...particularly at the strawberry shortcake and coffee. Heh. ETA: They were very surprised and thrilled with stuff, and asked a couple of times "how I knew just what to bring." Heh...I didn't let on that I had lots of help.
