    olive oil would probably be used more so than the vanilla. Plus, if your guests don’t use the olive oil, at least it will look pretty with herbs!

    It would take me years to go through a bottle of vanilla extract, whereas my husband cooks with olive oil all the time.

    marymary123:  Looks like I’m in the minority here but I’d love the vanilla. I use it all the time in my baking & ice creams plus quality vanilla is expensive!

    marymary123:  I would use either. I do a lot of baking so I could use that. My husband and I also use olive oil to cook with so that would be equally as useful. I think people would choose olive oil though because it has more uses than vanilla, even though vanilla would last longer.

    Edited to add that if someone already has vanilla, chances are they don’t need another one just because a bottle lasts forever. Oil would be much handier to have more of!

    If I was flying in I would not take it because my liquids bag is always already stuffed to the brim. So if you have a lot of people traveling I probably wouldn’t do these favors.

    We would be more likely to use the olive oil than the vanilla extract.

    marymary123:  My mom makes me a bottle of herbed olive oil every year with her garden herbs and I love it. It’s yummy. I voted for oil!

    Love baking and cooking, so I would definitely use either…but I’d probably be more excited about the vanilla!

    We did homemade vanilla and it was a huge hit. I still get comments about it.

    I love the idea of the vanilla! That’s my vote 🙂
