Lemon liqueur, crunchy toffee, feather-light savory shortbreads: Whip up a batch or two of terrific edible presents
Molly Watson, Stephanie Dean, and Amy Traverso

Mason jars Traditionally used for canning, these containers keep edibles fresh and are available in a range of sizes.

Melamine plates These inexpensive decorative pieces can function as small serving platters and make the presentation of baked goods really pop.

Oversize ceramic mugs Great for presenting gourmet teas (bags or loose leaf), cocoa mix, or granola.

Small canvas bags Instead of the usual wicker basket, try a canvas bag. Seal goodies in plastic first, tuck inside the bag, and use ribbon to tie a cookie cutter ― which can double as a tree ornament ― to the handles.
