Now, if you're wondering what to do with all of those ginger related items here's a short list of uses and benefits of ginger. With a little exploration, you can find even more ways that ginger is beneficial.
Crystallized ginger can relieve symptoms of discomfort that come from over eating or eating foods that vary from your normal dietary plan. This is a common problem during the holidays. Crystallized ginger is helpful in relieving nausea related to the flu, motion sickness, or morning sickness. Pieces of ginger candy can often be used instead of crystallized ginger. It's easy to keep the candy in your purse, your desk, your travel bag, desk drawer, or various other convenient locations.
A hot ginger drink can relieve some of the discomfort associated with the typical winter cold. Ginger tea is excellent for warming you up on a cold day. You can make an excellent ginger drink with fresh ginger root, sugar and lemon.
Gingersnaps are ideal for the holiday table. They are also a delicious way to settle an upset stomach. Gingersnap cookies have been successfully used as a remedy for motion sickness for dogs. This might be a beneficial tip if you plan to travel with your pet during the holidays, or on your next vacation.
Slice some fresh ginger, add it to a pot of boiling water and it will serve as a wonderful air freshener for your home.

I have a child that's allergic to artificial fragrances. Using fresh ginger sounds like a nice alternative. Thanks for the suggestion.
Thank you for posting this. I love ginger in all it's forms. I haven't seen ginger candy, though. Where do you get it? It sounds wonderful, and easy to keep in the car for those who get car sick. Now I have to look for a recipe! Crystallized ginger is very good, so I know candy would be just great. I voted for your post.
