Searching for a non-alcoholic bitters recipe

I know! I know! Sacrilege!

I'm wondering if it is possible to make homemade bitters that are non-alcoholic. I want to get started on making Christmas gifts, and some are for non-drinkers who are into making fancy drinks, sans booze.

Fee Brothers make glycerine-based bitters, so I'm wondering if anyone has a recipe similar to theirs. I've been searching online and I'm coming up with nothing. If the recipe is more like a bitter simple syrup, that's okay. (And, before anyone says it, I know that traditional bitters include a tiny amount of alcohol, but for some would-be recipients, even that little bit counts.)

Thanks!
