What to make / bring for my friend in Finland

As I mentioned in a previous thread, I am soon going to be going to Finland. I am fortunate enough to have a friend there who is going to be showing me around Turku (where she lives) for a day, and I wanted to bring her something to say thank you for taking that time. I will already be bringing some quilted placemats that my mother made (absolutely beautiful!), but I wanted to wrap something tasty in them for her, something that comes from me.

My mother suggested banana bread, but I have been trying to think of something that might be a) more unique (is in, she probably hasn't eaten it before) and b) something that won't get stale on the way there, since it will be a few days before I see her.

My initial thought was chocolate chip cookies. But I am open to thoughts.

Thanks in advance!
