In my book, giving has always trumped receiving. And giving something that I’ve made is even more satisfying. If I put something of myself into a gift—time, labor and creative expression—I think it makes it much more meaningful than something I just went out and bought. There’s no satisfaction greater than seeing the look on someone’s face when they unwrap something I created and it gives them joy.

This month, we received so many good ideas for food-related gifts that I thought I’d share more of them than usual. The best of the bunch, we thought, was an idea for presenting a cupcake in a creative and unusual package. The receiver gets a tasty homemade treat in a reusable container that might inspire yet another gift.
