What Are Some Good Food Gifts to Make or Buy?

Product & Shopping Questions

Q: For my birthday, my friend gave me a basket with edible gifts she made herself. Her birthday is coming up and I want to repay her generosity, but I don't have much time to handcraft. What are some good artisan treats to buy or quick homemade delights I can give her?
