Need help with a baby gift, but there's a catch...

Years ago, my parents hosted a foreign exchange student from Norway. He's now married and a first-time father with a three-month-old baby girl. He's traveling to the States to surprise my mom, and I wanted to make sure that my mom had a baby gift ready for them when they arrive.
Of course, we're buying that gift to give to my mom to give to the Norwegians, so as not to ruin the surprise. Here's what we'd like:
<>$50 or so price tag
<>Something that is small enough to pack in their luggage for the trip home
<>Something that is small enough to wrap nicely and subtly hide until we give it to my mom to give to them
<>Something nice, classy and readily available at retail stores (it's too late to order something online)
<>Michigan-centric would be nice, but not at all important
The family is significantly upper-middle class in Norway, and not in need of staples (so "money for diapers" and such isn't what I'm looking for). Any suggestions?>>>>>
