This layered brownie-in-a-jar is a decadent treat for any gluten-free friend. The secret to making the brownies so chewy and moist? A high sugar-to-flour ratio—and a substantial amount of cocoa powder. Rice and almond flours replace traditional all-purpose, and chopped walnuts add a nice crunch. The only ingredients it needs are butter, eggs, and vanilla, which are staples your recipient likely has on hand.

This hot cocoa jar requires a bit of crafting, but the result is so cute it'll be worth the extra effort. Begin by scooping cocoa mix into each jar, followed by peppermint squares and a spoonful of mini marshmallows. Use pretty pink fabric to make the ruffled covers, then tape on a label, add candy cane hearts, and attach a mini bottle of Kahlua for a fun, boozy twist. These would be adorable for Valentine's Day, as well.
