  • A nice wine basket? A plant? If she's in a new town you could do a basket with the local pizza, chinese, etc. menus and some gift certificates for those places? Something for outside maybe...a bird feeder or bird bath or decorative outdoor thermometer for their deck or patio? You could go super green and get them a nice tree to plant, it will grow with their family...maybe a weeping cherry or something pretty...

  • Anything "kitchen"! does she cook? buy a kitchen gadjet. Does she read books? buy her a lamp for her bedside table. A throw blanket, a rug, a front door mat, candles, vases, picture frames. A pretty bowl to put fruit in.

  • Pck a favorite recipe of hers, maybe from when she was a kid. Get all the non-perishable ingredients and put them in a basket or appropriate cooking dish with the recipe. She will have to get the perishables and cook it, but she won't have to worry about the first meal in her new house.
