What's the perfect small Christmas gift for a co-worker (from the U.S.) who's spending 5 months working/traveling in New Zealand.

A well-liked colleague is headed to New Zealand and I'd like to get her a perfect holiday/going away present for her trip.
Ideally, it would be light, easy to pack, incredibly useful and/or fun and under $50. I was thinking of a set of SmartWool socks but I think it will summer when she gets there (late January), so they might not be that useful. I'm sure she'll be doing lots of sightseeing but not any serious long-term backpacking since she'll have a job.
This previous Askme
seemed to mostly focus on backpacking items. Also, I figure her close friends and family will set her up with guide books and standard travel stuff this Christmas, so it needs to be something somewhat out of the ordinary to make sure it's not a duplicate. Thanks!
