What kind of fancy salt should I give as a gift? Recipe?

I'm getting a relative a nice salt box for Christmas and would like to supplement the gift with a bit of fancy salt. I know there are pink salts, black salts, French salts...what should I get? She cooks a lot, but isn't terribly adventurous. I thought it would be nice to also include a recipe for something using the fancy salt, but am again stuck. Anyone have a favorite? A salt that changed your life (or at least a meal)?
