I live across the continent from my family, and can't afford to go home this year (stupid expensive flights!).  I am, as usual, stumped as to what to get for my dad.  He owns pretty much everything he needs, and I just don't think I can send him another pair of socks this year.

However, he likes to eat!  Who doesn't?  So I'm trying to think of something edible that would survive the 3+ weeks it could take to get there and wait to be opened.  So cookies are out.  Any brilliant ideas?

Bonus if peanuts are involved.  He doesn't particularly like chocolate (sometimes I question if we are really related...) but doesn't particularly hate it either.

I think peanut brittle can last a while. I mean, I'd make sure it's in an airtight container to be safe, but I think that would work. And it's totally easy to make, and if it gets banged around a bit during shipping it won't matter! I myself have shipped it before, but not over that long a period of time.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Agree with the peanut brittle, or spiced nuts or something like that (lots of recipes on line).  Do you have access to a vacuum saver - like the Food Saver or something like that?  You may be able to keep the food fresher, and compact the package more for shipping if you vacuum seal them in the bags.
