I've given fruit before and it's been very well received--also dried fruits and nuts. I think as long as it's nothing too exotic for the recipient it's great! There are some fantastic raw cookie and truffle recipes out there!
Here's a fudge recipe that I adore:
1 cup raw honey
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Blend all in a food processor or Vita-mix. Pour into a pan, refrigerate till firm. That's it! You can add nuts, dried fruits, coconut, or cacao nibs to it if you'd like. And heated slightly it makes an excellent fudge sauce!
EDIT: you can use agave in place of the honey if you like.
