If there is still time to do a DIY gift idea this one is a surprisingly simple candidate. Herbs and spices, probably already sitting in the cupboard, are poured into test tubes and placed in their accompanying rack. A cork popped on top and that's it. All of these things can be found in most craft/hobby stores or the craft or toy section of bigger stores where school project sets are usually plum for things such as this. Otherwise find them here and here online.
