A really special gift that may be time consuming but definitely worth it is a family recipe book. Throughout the year gather recipes from each family member, especially your Mom's holiday ones or your sister's famous mashed potatoes for example. Each recipe can be told with a story behind the recipe if desired and a picture of the food itself, the ingredients to make it, or the person that shared the recipe. Compile them all and you can easily print them out and put it in a binder, or publish it professionally into a book. Then give them out to your family as Christmas presents, or your new sister-in-law at her bridal shower. You can have additional "volumes" as you continue to gather recipes throughout the years. A great website to publish your cookbook on is LuLu.com.
