Actual meals, shipped to the other coast, for new parents?

I would like to send actual _meals_ to a friend who is about to have a baby. Problem: I'm East Coast, she's West Coast, and most of the "welcome new baby gift baskets" I've found online seem to be fairly lame? (Though I'm not a parent, so am I wrong?) Help please! [more inside]

Gifts for out-of-state new parents.

My boss lives several states away (we both telecommute). His wife will have their second child in a few weeks. I'd like to gift them with some useful goodies that can help them get through those tough early days, but are relatively easy to mail and/or order. Any suggestions?
