Not female, sorry.
But did she make some sort of list or did she just let you decide?

If it's the second, get her a giftcard and tell her you didn't know what to get her, if it's the first quickly order something and tell her it's still on the way.

Also, be honest to her about the situation.

Does she drink alcohol? If so, how about a bottle of wine?

If you know a restaurant or something that she likes or has wanted to try, then a gift card for that specific place would be nice.

Big NOT--jewelry or clothes.

Does she like boardgames? If so, maybe give her a game that she can play with friends or with her family. She'll probably have some time with the holidays coming up.

Some of my favorites: Hanabi, Love Letter, Dominion, Telestrations (this is wonderful with kids! And a lot of fun without them, too :P), or even Werewolves of Miller's Hollow if she has a big family or a large group of friends (or, if she would like it but usually can't play with a large group: Avalon)

Otherwise, what about a book? If you have similar tastes, why not give her your favorite book? Or give her The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, everyone I introduce that book to seem to love it. You can add some wine or tea to make it like a relaxing-over-the-holidays-present.

Good luck!

Candles? Maybe a gift card? To target or somewhere she can use for herself.

Great ideas so far, thanks guys. Think of going to bath and body works and picking up some bath stuff. Shes not much of a reader, and J'm notallowed to buy alcohol and bring it to work. Giftcard is sounding really good too.
