What's a super fancy thing to buy the seamstress in your life?

My partner is a seamstress with a robust sewing room. She spends much of her non-work time drafting patterns and making apparel and she's just great at it.
Last year for Christmas, I got her custom sewing tags and she loved them. For her birthday, I got an old sign from an abandoned textile mill that's now mounted to the door of her sewing room.
This year I want to get her a tool, but I don't know enough about sewing to know what's awesome to have. I want something like the best muslin fabric to buy (is that an oxymoron?) or awesome drafting tools or the classiest pins or the best scissors ever or the finest bias tape maker on the market.
