What flavors go well with lemon?

I am the Secret Santa for a gal at work. She's a really nice person and I want to have fun over the next few weeks and give her some gifts she'll really enjoy. In her questionnaire, she wrote that she really likes lemon. I had a bag of lemons hanging around that I needed to use up and I'd always wanted to make lemon curd. It turned out quite well. I used this recipe. I put some in a pretty little glass jar for her, but I'm wondering what I can pair with it... using it as a condiment, not in a cake, for example. I thought about a sweet scone mix or even to bake the scones myself. What do you think? Thanks!!

I should have done a search first. I did find another thread regarding lemon curd. Still, a suggestion of flavors that pair well with lemon would be nice for future reference. Thanks!

Lime, orange, pineapple, vanilla, champagne (as in champagne flavored jello).

a simple pound cake, scone or muffin. Let the lemon stand by itself.

Grate some peel, dry it a bit in a low heat oven, and package ala spice jar. Maybe candied slices in same oven. As for flavor pairings, shoot, lemons goes with everything; it's one of the few perishables that my pantry is never without. Anything with fats is well complimented by lemon's acidity (like a dollop of whipped cream on a curd).

Good fun. Make sure she never guesses right who her secret santa is!
