Ideas For Food to Mail to New Parents?

Good Questions

Q: My boyfriend's sister-in-law is having her first baby soon. I want to send over some sort of food gift, but we live hundreds of miles away. I would love to hear suggestions for meals that travel well via overnight delivery. Any ideas?

Another possibility is using an organic delivery service, if anyone has any recommendations for one that serves the Prospect Park area of Brooklyn. They don't have any dietary restrictions, they just prefer eating organic.
