I have researched the Egyptian God Anubis quite a bit, and feel comfortable about my knowledge with him, and feel that I should make an altar dedicated to him next to my Altar, im wondering stuff to put on it, as well as offerings, I have an Egyptian book of the dead, would that be a good offering? From what Ive seen, black is the color that represents him, so maybe some black cloth to cover the table, and offerings are another thing. I know on my other post about working with Anubis Misanthropy said that Anubis likes milk. Stuff like that, but milk wouldnt work for an altar because it would go bad. I was wondering stuff like what color candles, incenses, gems, and anything else that he would like that represents him well. I just need basic info like that.

I really don't know much of the Egyptian pantheon, but since you mentioned milk, this is generally how perishable offerings work: They're placed on the altar for a period of time, then disposed of. They're not necessarily left in perpetuity. By your description, I'd guess you're looking more for items which can become permanent additions to the altar, dedicated to Anubis, rather than things (such as milk and honey) which would spoil eventually if left out.
A quick search did offer some other possibilities. Here's a direct quote from one site, which was along the lines of what I was seeking:
Considering his relationship with preservation, herbs that would most fit him are those that protect and preserve. Benzoin, Frankincense, Myrrth, Anise Star, Cloves, Cardamom, Salts, Rosemary are all herbs that would probably work well for him.
