Idea #1 Vanilla sugar with a pound of your favorite coffee. This can be wrapped in cellophane or just nestled in a gift bag.
Idea #2 Vanilla sugar in a mug with a small sample of coffee and some chocolates. I decided on a neutral mug (to match anyones decor) that I got from my local department store. I also used a smaller container of sugar. I wrapped it in cellophane that I got from the grocery store, and included a tag on how to make additional vanilla sugar.
Idea #3 A larger container of vanilla sugar with a recipe for sugar cookies attached. I used a simple jar and applied a rub on transfer to add a little design to the jar. I wrapped this one in tissue and nestled it in a gift bag with a label that says "From the Kitchen of....".
Idea #4 Bake a batch of snicker doodle muffins, topped with vanilla cinnamon sugar, and give a small jar of sugar. The recipient can use it with coffee or tea while enjoying the muffins. I put the muffins on a holiday tray.
