My SIL gave me a Kindle with a gift card, and it was great! I'm no longer on bedrest, but I'm still addicted to it. What about word puzzles or sudoku books? Even if she's not crafty, she might want to learn to crochet just to make a blanket or hat. There are tons of books and even Web sites to learn from. More than anything, just giving her someone to talk to is probably the most helpful thing you can do - even if it's just a phone call. Being on bedrest really stinks...
