Saffron from Crete? Best present ever!

My parents just got back from a trip to Greece, and my mom picked up some saffron as a present for me. (The phone conversation in which I was informed of this was apparently amusing; my boyfriend likened my reaction to a 13-year-old girl with the new Justin Bieber album.) I've never had a chance to get my hands on saffron before (it's always been out of my price range), I'm quite excited by the prospect and already have various dishes planned (starting with the lamb tagine from Around My French Table, which I've made sans saffron and loved).

Just so this post isn't only me crowing about my good fortune (which I totally am), what's the best food-related present you've ever received?
