What about Shrewsbury cakes? People love them, they keep awhile, they can
be flavored with different spices/extracts and decorated as you see fit
also. My lord and I received a seasoned salt as a gift from the Crown
recently. How about lavender or rose flavored sugars? A small bag of
comfits? Candied ginger, lemon or orange peel etc.(called "suckets" in
Martha Washington's Cookery)? Sugared or spiced nutmeats?  
Are hard candy suckers period?
