San Francisco centric, useful, relatively non-perishable gift ideas for a friend moving to Singapore?

A dear friend is moving to Singapore for work for at least two years. I'm looking for ideas to compliment the sappy/sentimental part of her going-away gift. The catch is that I'm looking for things that are hard to get outside of or are unique to the Bay Area. Having lived here for so long I don't have a good concept of what you can and cannot get elsewhere. So far my best idea is some Bicycle coffee (her favorite) but I'm looking for more. Can you even bring coffee into Singapore?
Weight/space isn't a big concern, although bulky is not ideal. Her company is paying to ship a container and she doesn't have nearly enough stuff to even begin to fill it. I'd like to try and stay away from making a gift full of food.
