Gift/recognition idea for bio sister nominated for award

You all often have the best ideas, so I figured I'd come here to ask this question.

My biological sister has been nominated for a business award. She is one of four nominees, and the award will be presented at a luncheon hosted by the governor.

I was wondering what is appropriate to give my sister as congratulations of being nominated? I was thinking about bringing flowers to the event, but if she doesn't win, would that be awkward?

Thoughts? (Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer!)

Perhaps some sort of "business-y" type gift? (Ie, a personalized portfolio, business card holder, etc.)

I think something business-y would be appropriate. I think a nice pen is always valued, maybe something engraved?

Flowers are always nice but I wouldn't take them with you. I'd send her flowers to be delivered to her house as a congratulations for being nominated. Then also hand carry a business-like gift. Nice pens are always great for something like that.

Staples has some executive-style, leather yet feminine portfolios. I recently got one that is very stylish and it wasn't expensive at all. i don't see it on the website but if you check your local store, i'm sure they're in stock.
