Ideas for gift for my VERY CRUNCHY friend - help!

I really want to do something special for my friend. She moved far away from me and I miss her. I want to send her a package of some clothes for her kids and something nice for her.

But, she is SUPER crunchy. Like she eats ONLY organic, ONLY grass-fed, ONLY herbal/natural remedies when ill, super special filtration system on her water, will not ever drink water that has not been through her filtration treatment, etc., etc. etc. She does not compromise, ever. Not for anything. Not even Ben and Jerry's, or Starbucks. ... she's quite the inspiration. I WISH I could be like her!

Anyway, what are some things I could get for her? I am not as schooled about chemicals and what's free of garbage and what's not. I don't want her to get something she will never use. I've tried looking around but I have no clue what I am looking for or at.

I'm open to suggestions. Even WAHM stuff. I just need something pure and natural with nothing icky in it that I can give to her that she will love and this is DA BOMB.

TIA mamas!

Earth mama angel baby has great stuff, and any crunchy mama I know would be thrilled to receive some! They have a really low great score on the cosmetics data base so that should fly with her. How about moving this to the green forum, you might more of the answers that you're looking for.

I really like this website:
http://www.ewg.org/

I think something that scores a 1 on there would be okay with even the crunchiest of crunchy.
