I would say this was probably only an hour or two of work for her, depending on her experiance. I would say a bottle of a nice wine would be suitable.

I agree with the nice bottle of wine. If she’s experienced, than I’m sure she didn’t spend hours or days on end coming up with this invite. Which is lovely by the way. A bottle of wine would be great as a gift.

i like the idea of the nice whine. maybe do a gift basket of the bottle of wine and maybe some cheese and bread/meats that sort of thing.

Although I’m not a pro, I do things like this for friends. Keep in mind most graphic designers charge a pretty penny for complete custom designs. There is also a process of planning out the product, doing it, refining, and finalizing that takes time and effort. I second the gift basket with wine, a couple of nice cheeses, smoked meat, bread, etc.

Does she like wine? What about a giftcard to itunes or starbucks or something?

I would also throw in some good quality chocolates with that wine.

@Au Jardin: A thank you card and a gift card for a nice dinner.

Did she design any other pieces for you like rsvps, directions, thank yous, place cards, menus, programs, etc?  If she designed multiple pieces of your wedding stationery, or if you’d like her to help out with other wedding paper things, I would gift her much more than a bottle of wine. Is she printing these for you or just designing them?  If she’s just designing the invite only, I would gift her a nice bottle of wine and at least a $25 gift card.  If she designed multiple pieces, I would suggest a $50+ gift card.  If she’s designing and printing for you, you should be getting her a very very thoughtful gift.  When I worked doing invitation design, even a few hours of my time resulted in hundreds of dollars of finished product.
