I just put together a gift bag for a unisex shower tomorrow - for $120 I got a digital thermometer, white socks, picture book, eye mask for mum, a little toy, some nursing tea, some nappy sacks, some condoms!! - and then all the girls are doing an "IOU". I've just packaged it all up and am delighted with it - cant wait to give it to her tomorrow!!
I shopped at the pharmacy, Coles and the $2 shop

It's only a small gift but I loved having a CD of 50 Nursery Rhymes from the ABC shop. I often played it in the car with a crying DD and I re-learnt all the songs I'd forgotten about. I think it's about $15.

As a few people have said, it's all the little things you appreciate most. I asked for no clothes or blankets (my MIL and grandmother-in-law had already given me about 80 thousand blankets), just consumables like nappies, wipes, lotions etc. I've got a tub of stuff which I think will last through 3 children! It's great!
If she's planning to breastfeed then there's a world of helpful nipple care things available. Nipple cream and healing gel pads for cracked nipples were fantastic gifts I received. Also, I have saved SO much money with washable re-usable breast pads. You can buy them off Ebay for very reasonable prices.
Depending how close you are to your friend you can also get her maternity pads, she will definitely go through plenty of those! Also, I got slippers for hospital, sounds silly but they were handy!
Hope I was helpful. Oh one last thing, teething toys and any kind of plastic containers/feeding bowls I got given I have used!

I'm also a fan of an 'emergency' helper - baby panadol, baby Nurofen, fess little noses, infants friend, coloxyl drops... All the stuff you don't think off, costs $$$ and generally when you need it, you need it now.
Another good idea is a room vapouriser.
