May sound silly but depending on what she likes to eat maybe something easy to snack on or prepare that she can open/make with one hand?  Or a cute but comfy shirt to wear with the sling?

My sister had shoulder surgery a while back.  She had to wear strapless bras & those little cami type tank tops- she couldn’t get straps over her arm or her arm into any t-shirt sleeves.  I brought her some snacks (and maybe a casserole?  I don’t remember) since she wouldn’t be doing much cooking with only one arm.  If you have to mail something I’d send nonperishable snacks like cookies, trail mix, granola, crackers, sweets- stuff that will ship well and can be eaten with little to no preperation.

I had a friend who had to have a leg amputated.  I gave her a big Barnes & Noble giftcard because I knew she was going to be stuck at home for a while.  She looked really appreciative.
