What is your favorite food gift?

The other day my Dad gave me a strand of braided garlic that he grew and dried and it nearly moved me to tears because I know how special his garlic is to him. Its so pretty I almost don't even want to use it but I'm sure it will be gone before I even know it.

This got me thinking, what makes giving food so special? Serious eaters, what was your favorite gift of food and why?
