The scent of cinnamon is a powerful olfactory force for conjuring up holiday memories. Here's an easy gift idea: fill boxes made from the naturally fragrant bark of the cinnamon tree (Cassia) with sugar, tea, or coffee and tie with natural twine or a colorful ribbon.

Above: Round Cinnamon Boxes from Nom Express; a set of three is £19.99 (also available individually). In the US, similar boxes are available from Ten Thousand Villages for $10 each.
