Slice vanilla beans lengthwise and scrape the seeds into a bowl. Pour sugar over the seeds and whisk until you see flecks of vanilla evenly distributed throughout the sugar. Note: a food processor also works well for this step.

Place sugar and vanilla mixture in an airtight container and bury the scraped bean pods in the sugar. Seal and allow to sit for two weeks. Package in decorative containers for gift giving.
