The Big 3-0

I have a friend who is turning 30 at the end of this week. She's still quite a new friend, but I really like her and I think we'll probably have quite a long-lasting friendship, and so would like to get her a thoughtful gift. The thing is, I absolutely SUCK at choosing gifts, even for my closest friends/family, and the thought of it stresses me out. Ideas?

Additional info: turning 30 is a scary thought for her, and she has also been dumped by a boyfriend recently so I would like her to feel she is still special and positive etc. She enjoys girly things (makeup, dressing up etc); she is athletic (ran a half-marathon recently), quite sentimental, a scientist by training, doesn't cook a lot but enjoys good food.
I don't think she's expecting gifts, so nothing too substantial (budget $20-30) - just something thoughtful. The easy option would be something like a personal card + chocolates/wine; are there others? What would you appreciate from a friend (who may not be your BFF) if you were turning a big age?
