Gifting foods - or how to send a long-distance hug

My sister and brother-in-law have had a rough couple of weeks. She had a melanoma removed and skin grafts (all is well but she is sore) and he just had a close encounter with a car while riding his motorcycle - he is okay too, but really, really sore.

If they were close by, I'd be making meals, taking over beer and wine, etc. But I am in Texas and they are in Florida.

Does anyone have ideas on good food gifts to send long distance? I am game to make something or to order something online. I am just not sure what would be good. He is going to be fairly inactive for a while until he heals enough to start therapy, and she's working full time (at Williams Sonoma) so I think a little food contribution would be appreciated.
