Gift for the hostess who's adverse to everything?

I'm going to a murder mystery dinner party next Saturday, yay! I'd like to bring a hostess gift for the couple putting on the event. But the hostess has several major allergies/issues, which leave me stumped as to figuring out what to bring.

However, the hostess in question is on a pretty strict diet in preparation for her upcoming wedding in August, is a recovering alcoholic, and also allergic to flowers, and all nuts. They also live in a teeny two bedroom condo, so they probably don't need tons and tons of stuff?
I usually bring wine or make dessert, but both are out for obvious reasons. The hostess is a new-ish friend about 15 years older than me (early/mid 40's), and I met her and her fiance through the local nerds and geeks group. She likes World of Warcraft, board games, and hosting parties, all of which are awesome. I want to be polite and bring something, but I don't know what would be appropriate! Help me figure out what to do!
