My bestest good friend of 20 years is pregnant! YAY! I'd like to get her something simple but awesome to commemorate this. What should I send?

I have been the best of friends (seriously, she's my not really a sister but totally a sister) with a gal for 20 years. I introduced her to one of my good dude friends years ago and they're married now. I actually performed their ceremony! Anyway, they've been trying for a baby and I got the call today. SHE'S PREGNANT!
I'm so excited I can hardly stand it for I love these two people greatly. They've both, separately and together, been by my side for years and I'd like to send along a little something for them. She's just 4 weeks along so they're not telling people yet and they don't know the sex yet so it would need to be something either gender neutral or geared towards them as parents. I'll be mailing this to them so that may color the suggestions.
Can you think of something I could send along, as a small but thoughtful congratulations? I've been wracking my brain for hours now and can't really think of much. I'm a parent too (and also, they love my son and have always insisted on being incredibly generous and wonderful to him and he views them as basically his aunt and uncle) but I'm still at a loss. Both aren't really flower people and besides, I want to send something more thoughtful than that. I'm open to personalized somethings as a suggestion, I just can't think of what exactly...
