Gift for my Oakland-based friend?

I'm getting gifts for my wedding party and I'm having trouble picking something for my friend who just moved to Oakland. Could y'all recommend good Oakland-based gifts for under $100? Thanks!

My friend moved to Oakland from Austin in February. She lives east of Lake Merritt near Oakland High School. I've never been to the Bay Area (although I'm heading out there next month!), so I'm stumped in terms of what would be a terrific "thank you for being in my wedding" gift. She likes food, cooking, coffee, cocktails, art (especially sculpture and photography), scifi, and bad movies. I don't know how often she goes into San Francisco so I don't know if getting her a membership to one of the art museums there is a good idea or not (or if it would be a hassle to go there enough to make the membership worth it). She does have a car. If she was in Austin I would get her a gift card to a restaurant she really loves, but I don't know that she's really had the funds/time to explore many places near her. Suggestions? Thanks so much!
