My Favorite Things Today are all of the edible sort. This time of year, even moreso than most, I love giving beautifully presented/packaged food as gifts. I know how much we like receiving such things, as well. Reaching into the fridge and finding a jam that was given to us as a gift, is a sweet reminder of the giver. Or pulling out of the pantry a box of cookies that can be used in a pinch for a quick dessert. The shop shelves are filled to the brim with such options. Here are a few things that caught my eye as I walked around straightening up displays yesterday after a busy day of holiday shoppers and wrap, wrap, wrapping.
