Having a day where you have some sort of marathon viewing of something (netflix series, anime, gaming) and just vegging out together. Spending the whole day together doing unimportant things together can be therapeutic/comforting.

At least for some people. Everyone's different, obviously.

Does your friend enjoy hiking, biking, or other outdoor activities? The weather (here, at least) is wonderful and it is proven that physical activity and exposure to the sun both have positive effects on mental health.Is there anything that makes her laugh? Laughter is incredibly powerful, though if she is really depressed she may not be very responsive to things that would otherwise have normally entertained her. Other than that, just simply being there for her through this time and not giving up on her, all while walking a thin line of trying not to push her too much (it isn't easy) means a lot. Though she may not acknowledge it or even realize it now, having people with us through difficult times makes a huge difference. Good luck and best wishes.

Definitely agree with gravb0und's post.

Just hang out and do random stuff. Have a movie/anime night at someone's house or play video games all night. That would cheer me up heaps if I was in that position. I don't need to spend much money to have fun just being around with a group of people I know/trust would lift me up. But yeah it does depend on the person and their interests etc...

Be nice to them, first of all. Talk to them/ask them if they want to talk, hug them perhaps, maybe do something fun together, be a friend, be there for them.

Go to a local park for a walk. Maybe you have an ARBORETUM (tree and flower sanctuary)
Go an play frisbee, like ULTIMATE frisbee.
Go to the public library together and read some books.
Go to a coffee shop and have some drinks.
Rent a movie from Redbox and watch it.

Seriously, even if she doesn't want it I feel like asking if she needs one helps A LOT.

When my dad was having trouble before they gave him a pacemaker I was more concerned with keeping in contact with him, It was really hard because he wasn't as "sharp" as he usually is. He was really hard to talk to and it took a lot of work to keep a conversation going. He was pretty depressed. It had an effect on all of us. I noticed that if I would go and be with my folks and make an effort to communicate with my dad everyone felt better.

If you know your friend's dad you might try visiting or talking with him. People really feel better if you take an interest in the whole family....
You talked about making cookies, perfect idea!

As look at some of the other posts, most everyone has got pretty good suggestions.
Spending time with people is actually some of the best therapy you can give.

Make her food
write her a poem
sing her a song
draw her a picture
make her a [friendship] bracelet
watch movies with her- have a marathon

all of you together think of 10 nice things about said person: memories, traits, feelings you have when your friend is around. Write them all down. Make a book out of it.
Or all of the above if you want to be spectacular~
