You can use a traditional holiday basket, a tote bag, or find a container that can be used over and over.
Hot cocoa or spiced apple cider mix.
Flavored teas and coffees.

Anthologies and short story collections put together by different authors are great! Especially if you aren't sure what genre your recipient reads.

And "Catch Her in The Rye" and you can find it here;
And then if they like romance :-)
"The Good Dr. Grant" is a sweet, sexy, fun, and flirty romance!
