need some ideas for a thank you gift

Okay so i need to get my girlfriend's parents a thank you gift. They're in florida and i'm in new york so it has to be mail order, and I'm looking for something delicious (either solid or liquid) that I can send for around $50 total. Basically I'm looking for any suggesstions. I wanted to do a beer of the month thing but those seem like theyre a minimum of $80 (as 3 months is required), but like I said I'm open to anything whether food or beverage. I just don't want anything typical! thanks!
