"I try to give things that get consumed, because I don't want to add to anyone's clutter—a true gift doesn't burden the recipient."

My favorite thing to give is cash. These little red Chinese envelopes let me present it with the honor that money deserves.

2. Stacking Up

Not only does this boxed set look pretty; its contents (pears, baklava, mixed nuts, aged Cheddar, smoked sausage, raspberry galettes, and two kinds of chocolates) taste amazing, too.

Because all my royalties from this book go to the Avon Foundation for Women, this isn't just one gift—it's empowerment for those who read it and a boost for women's issues.

6. Let Her Rip!

While a space-saving crosscut shredder may seem like a strange gift, I love that it helps protect those close to me.
