Best Mail Order Holiday Gifts

Please help me find some ideas for great food gifts that I can have delivered to customers for the holiday season.
I've done Florida Fruit, Wines, jams & jellies among others in the past and was hoping to find something a little different this year.
Thanks,
Mark

  1. Try Dean & Deluca (if you can afford it).

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of a HarryandDavid fruit of the month subscription I received as a gift. Thought it would be lame...but it was great. (Just the fruit, not necessarily the candy/confections).

    1. Balducci's- www.balduccis.com

      Godiva chocolate. Their chocolate doesn't live up to the reputation, but the gift looks impressive.

      Gus Gallucci's market- www.tasteitaly.com

      West Point Market- gourmet grocery with very nice gift baskets

      Harry London candies.

      1. How about Bacon-of-the-month? David Rosengarten has a fresh olive oil club.

        1. It is NOT cheap but:

          1) zingermans.com - they have a BREAD CLUB which is great and tasty along with tons of other gift packages. All delish and all well received.

          2) stonewallkitchen.com - they have nice baskets/gifts and the day after Turkey Day they did a free shipping thing last year, fyi.

          3) burdicks chocolate - the chocolate mice and penguins are a big hit and very tasty. My clients love getting them.

          1. A Southern Season, an awesome gourmet store from Chapel Hill, nC has some gorgeous gifts http://www.southernseason.com/, I've always had good luck with them (and note, not everything is "Southern"

            )

            also

            If you are sending it to an office situation, one of our clients used to send us these awesome brownies from Fairytale Brownies--they were awesome & individually wrapped, but classy.
