I'm in the US, a friend in Australia is going through a really rough time after surgery... I'd like to get her something nice delivered. I was thinking a food hamper would be nice. The catch is that she can't have gluten or lactose. Does anyone know a site where I could order a gluten free gift/meal service/fruit basket?
I'm open to other non-food ideas too.

My very organic wife wants a juicer for Christmas - She likes the style
