His Grace Gunthar suggested a few things NOT to give as gifts (ie: not  
meant to be handed on) to Crowns:
<<< Anything with the Kingdom Arms on it. That makes it Kingdom
Regalia and they don't get to keep it. >>>

Oh! I hadn't thought of that. What if the item had both the Kingdom  
arms and their personal arms on it? I could see something like that  
meant as a rememberance of their time as the Crown.

<<< Animals unless you know they REALLY want it. >>>

Are you talking about live animals or stuffed animals? or both?

As far as items to be used as largess to be passed on, I can think of  
several brewers in my kingdom, who I'd love to get bottle of their  
stuff. I do think such a gift should be well labelled. Here is a good  
Florilegium file that mentions that concern, but also gives some good  
ideas on how to make a good label.
