A smoothie kit that cuts down on prep work

Daily Harvest/Facebook

Gift the Daily Harvest Smoothie Edit Box, $89.88

Online healthy food startup Daily Harvest can feed her from breakfast to dinner with its bowls, cookies, and lattes, but its smoothies are still a bonafide classic that she should try. The 12-smoothie sampler includes refreshing, healthy mixes like Acai + Cherry, Mint + Cacao, and Strawberry + Peach. All she has to do is dump the cup of ingredients into her blender.

Cereal she won't be able to stop snacking on

Magic Spoon

Gift the Magic Spoon Variety 4-Pack, $39

The favorite cereal flavors of childhoods past are back in less sugary, more nutritious, and just as delicious forms. The high-protein, gluten-free cereals from Magic Spoon leave healthy, boring "adult" brands in the dust and are perfect for the kid at heart who eats a big bowl of cereal for breakfast every day.

Tender, flavorful Wagyu beef

Snake River Farms

Gift the Snake River Farms Half Baked Harvest Gift Set, $199

The highly marbled, award-winning American Wagyu beef from Snake River Farms is drool-worthy. She'll probably have her own ideas for exactly how to make these cuts shine, but just in case, this gift set includes a cookbook from popular food blogger Tieghan Gerard so she can make Fig and Cider Pork Chops or Soy-Marinated Flank Steak with Sesame-Herb Roasted Potatoes.
