What's tough to get in Yerevan?

My mom is going to visit some distant relatives in Yerevan, Armenia. We don't know them well, and she would like to bring a nice gift for them. She's wondering what kinds of things are tough to get there - nothing overly extravagant, just things that are nice to have that might be tough to come by there. For example, the relative mentioned that it's really hard to find insulated coffee mugs for commuting and he tries to always buy one when travelling outside the country - that's something we NEVER would have considered bringing, but apparently it's a rare commodity.
If you've lived in Armenia recently or have relatives there now, we'd really appreciate any nice ideas you have.
