Wrapping it Up
The lemons, spice, and rich green olive oil provide about all the good looks any small gift needs. But a great looking label and a few recipes would complete this gift nicely. If you have good computer skills, you might consider creating a booklet of recipes (you can search online or in any Mediterranean or Middle Eastern cookbook) to accompany the lemons. You should include a note with storage instructions, too: The lemons can be stored at room temperature, but as they are used, the jar should be replenished with olive oil to keep the remaining lemons covered and fresh. See Resources for information on free downloadable labels.
