For sweet treats as gifts I do shortbread, rum balls, apricot balls, baileys balls and for savoury gifts I make pesto, lavosh bread, dukkah and marinated fetta.

This is my post from another thread(think I've done it a few times now!):
I am making homemade baileys and possibly homemade limonchello (sp?). I am also making 'snowman soup' and putting it in a mug with homemade sugar cubes. (wet sugar, press into mini moulds then pop out when dry). I am also making some of these treats-not sure which ones yet:
marshmallow reindeers (made from royal biscuits)
chocolate peanut clusters (use salted peanuts and mix with melted choc. sounds yucky but tastes awesome)
chocolate dipped pretzel sticks
peppermint choc bark made in snowflake silicone moulds
merangue (sp) kisses
mocha fudge or baileys fudge
rum balls with assorted coatings
marshmallows dipped half in chocolate and sprinkles
I am also going to make 'cookies in a jar' where you layer ingredients for biscuits in a jar, and the recipient just needs to add the wet ingredients. The one I did last year had craisins in it, and I'm pretty sure it is on the taste website. It looked really good
Homemade vanilla extract-vanilla beans and vodka in a bottle. I bought vanilla beans off ebay. Cheaper than from the shop and much fresher.

I'm going to make these cherry truffles (thanks coles!)
(If you CBF'd clicking the link, it's basically choc ripple biscuit, condensed milk and glace cherries, covered in chocolate and dusted with cocoa- feel like clicking the link now? )
And def going to make some of my famous choc vanilla biscuits- just a basic shortbread biscuit I guess but I make 1/2 of the batter chocolate and then put it together in a fancy design with the vanilla portion- they look REALLY impressive when baked, and people think I'm really clever when in all honesty it's just something I learnt in yr 8 home ec!
I will make my dad some choc fudge sauce too- yum!
And for my IL's I usually do biscuits in a jar- my gosh they look so impressive!
