I like spice rubs - like a North African or a chimichurri - you can make several batches at once and pop them in cute little jars.

A take home hot toddy kit...an inexpensive ($1 store) glass irish coffee mug, with a homemade hot chocolate mix and homemade marshmellow and one of those mini "airline" sized bottles of Bailey's Irish Cream...or a dried apple cider/mulled cider spice blend with a Buttershots schnapps mini...or your favorite coffee (decaf!) combo. Wrap it up in a clear cellophane bag and tie with ribbon.

Sugar or gingerbread cookies (these keep well) cut out in shapes that are holiday appropriate (eg. a dreidel, christmas tree, holly sprig, snow man, etc.) and decorated with white lemony icing and lightly sprinkled with edible silver sparkles or glitter.

My Pan de Higo, which I posted last week, can be made in muffin tins (partially filled) and then wrapped in cellophane bags. It's different, packs a flavor punch, and is a great addition to any after-dinner cheese platter. The Pan de Higo is sweet, it's true, but not sugar-sweet. I'll be posting a recipe this weekend for a "Plum Pudding Pan de Higo," with more detailed instructions and photos on adapting for gift giving. ;o)

Remember less lean times when restaurants would give you pastry and chocolates to take home at the end of the meal? I love nancy Silverton's Pastries of La Brea Bakery and in my dreams would send guests home with pastries from her book for the next morning's breakfast.
