Please Help The Bread Baker's Apprentice Learn Gifting

Let's say I've resolved to give my family home-baked bread for Christmas this year. Which of your bread recipes will produce something that says "I've made this for you because I love you and not (just) because I desperately hate shopping"?

My criteria for a perfect gift of bread:
- Is beautiful in its own right
- Improves with age (maximum of three weeks), or at least keeps well enough that it will happily survive two days in shipping
- OMG TASTY
I've thought of stollen, but I'm not sure how well it keeps, and it doesn't quite have that visual "ooh" factor (unless I'm just overlooking some creative shaping possibilities).
Please help, MeFi bread bakers!
