Box of Chocolates
My caretaker had a stroke recently, and was told he has diabetes (or something), and to cut back on the sugar. That meant I couldn't bake him cookies for Christmas. (Not that I've had time to bake cookies.) I found some sugar-free chocolates at Scoop N Weigh that looked tasty, so I made a box for them, and gave him that for Christmas instead.
I passed on the warning that the owner's husband gave to me.
