just knowing that you care enough to try will mean the world to her. The items you mentioned are great! Also:
Ginger tea in case she gets tummy upset
Coconut oil in a jar was the #1 go to remedy for a variety of ills in my chemo sisters group
A quilt or blanket
A big bag to carry it all in
A coloring book with crayons
A regular notebook to make notes or journal her feelings
A pair of fun earnings
There are lots of things. Just tell her you want to help and as time goes on for her to tell you how you can help. Would making a meal and bringing it over be helpful? It all depends on her situation, but just being there is great. Don't tell her to stay positive, or you know how she feels. If you aren't sure what to say, just tell her that. But that you are there for her, whatever she needs.
Good for you for being such a thoughtful, loving friend!
