Gifts for a new New Yorker

A friend of mine is moving to New York next year. I'd like some ideas for a going away present that will be useful in her new life.

We're in Canada now, but she's Korean and has lived in the US before. She's in her thirties, quiet and nature-loving and not much into partying/nightlife, and has found a permanent job at a museum in New York. She'll be getting a guidebook to the city herself, but I'd like ideas for anything else that might be of use to her as she settles in. I've been thinking along the lines of books on its history, or on flora/fauna of the surrounding area, but maybe someone here who's moved there might have better ideas.
