I love to give and receive homemade holiday treats! We love receiving our friends Mary and Dan Daniels special shortbread every holiday.

Please share your favorite gifts from the kitchen.

I love making edible gifts! This year I plan to make ginger cookies, orange and thyme shortbread cookies, and some spiced nuts. All three are awesome recipes. In the past I've made Robert Linxe's truffles (plain and spiked), French-style nougat, and candied citrus peel—if I had unlimited time and $, which I don't, I'd make all of these things again.

I made raspberry vinegar this summer, which was delicious (although it was more like jam than syrup for me), and I think it would make a nice gift. I like the idea of making apple butter, but it seems difficult to make a large enough quantity to give as gifts. And sometime I'd like to give out marrons glacés, although I'm still experimenting with the method (my first attempts have been decent but not perfect).
