Yay for your thoughtfulness! She is going to be beyond thrilled in receiving it, for sure. The things that come to my mind are:
Nutritional yeast - it adds a cheese-like flavor to many dishes
Kala Namak Indian Black Salt (that isn't really black) - it adds an egg-like flavor to tofu scrambles/eggless vegg salad, etc.
Smoked Paprika - adds a deep rich smokey flavor to many dishes
Bragg's Liquid Amino (soy sauce replacement)
If she bakes, and is also mindful of her gluten consumption, grab her some gluten-free flours (Bob's Red Mill offers a large selection)/agar agar powder (I use it to make sliceable vegan cheeses)/tapioca starch/organic cocoa powder/g/f cornbread mix/flax meal (to make egg replacements - or buy the powdered egg replacements/ground ginger/cinnamon/any spices that you know she really likes, as they can often be pretty pricey).
Chia seeds - can make overnight refrigerator puddings etc. (I also do that with g/f oatmeal)
English walnuts - can make taco "meat" and bake with them
Raw cashews - can make vegan cheeses, add to curry dishes, stir-frys, etc.)
Raw sunflower seeds - I use these to make vegan cheeses and vegan parmesan cheese
Brazil nuts - a good source of selenium - I use this for vegan parmesan cheese, too, or just to snack on
Dairy-free chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand is my favorite)
Canned full fat coconut milk - can be added to soups/curries/can also be refrigerated and whipped into dairy-free whip cream
The box versions of her favorite plant-based milk
Bulk herbs for infusions (I use a lot of stinging nettle/red clover/burdock root/etc.),or boxed tea blends.
Jars of tahini - ground sesame seeds used in making hummus/pasta sauces/etc.
Her favorite pastas - I really enjoy the mung bean thread noodles
You rock! Thanks for helping to enrich the life of a fellow vegan consumer.
Most of those things are affordable and available at the grocery store, except for Kala Namak. The only thing gift-worthy I see on this list besides that are the nuts.
