What can I do/send/recommend for my long-distance, recent post-amputation friend to combat boredom?

I know this sounds... dramatic. One of my close friends was in a bad accident and, unfortunately, lost her leg. After being in the hospital for over a month, she's out and re-learning how to do basically everything.
She had to give up her apartment in Mid-Size Southern City and to move back with her parents in Southern 'Burbs to heal, get her new leg, and take her PT/OT. She obviously has many other issues to overcome in the next coming months and years, but she's identified one that I might (?) be able to help with: Boredom in the suburbs.
Details: She's 27, vivacious, a bartender, super social, and loves biking and the outdoors. All things she won't be able to do for a while.
I live in NYC. Any ideas on what I can do to help her keep her boredom at bay, from far away? Other than gifting her Netflix or DVDs?
Any other ideas in ways to be supportive from afar also appreciated.
