Not your usual gift card, book, or trinket, this was an especially fun gift from relatives who live in another city: "Try something new and delicious." Each box included all ingredients and directions to prepare 2dozen cookies, each recipe had a different (seasonal) theme. They were nicely packaged, offered tips for "the perfect cookie," and came with exact amount of each ingredient individually packaged. The directions were easy to follow and included color pictures. The only thing that would have made this gift even better is if the actual recipe has been included (so it could be duplicated later if we really loved it).
