I mean, what's a better gift than a log of butter? This is one of those gifts that people will be talking about for years to come. Herbs and lemon zest make this butter sing with flavor. It's perfect for steak, chicken, or a piece of salmon. You can also spread it on crusty homemade bread or on your favorite potatoes.
