Help me with suggestions for special or unusual recipes for gluten and wheat free portable lunches?

I want to surprise someone with a good lunch, but she can't have gluten/wheat - and she's vegetarian. I need ideas for lunches/meals that will travel and store well, so they'll survive being made the night before and transported.
I'm not really looking for utilitarian, easy idea - I can manage basics like a salad or something just fine - and I'd imagine she eats a lot of it.
I'm more looking for extra awesomeness, deliciousness and nutritiousness. This is a gift, not just a meal, but it still needs to be portable and utilitarian enough to be enjoyed on a short lunch break without being too complicated to eat. However, prep time on my end is no big deal.
Allowed: Fruits, veggies, nuts, rice. I'm assuming chickpea is ok. Yogurt is ok, so I'm assuming cheese is, too, but I'm not sure.
Also, bonus points if you have tips on making rice bread that doesn't suck, or suggestions on gluten-free bread alternatives.
