Food Gift Baskets--urgent

Help! I would like to send friends who just had a baby in Boston a gift basket of food. What do you recommend? Or for Boston-area food gifts that aren't baskets of food-- such as the delivery of a nice pie or other fresh foodstuff? I'd like to do this asap. Thanks.

  1. Several years ago, when my mother died, some friends sent me a nice basket from someplace called Nana's, in Winthrop. This is what I found on Google: Nana's Pantry
    64 Crest Ave
    Winthrop, MA 02152View Map
    The baked goods were really homemade, and a nice assortment. Usually, I send Edible Arrangements. They're always fresh, they deliver promptly, and people rave about them. It's so much easier than a fruit basket, and the quality is really good.

    1. It's not in Boston but Zingerman's does an excellent "midnight feeding box" which includes lots of yummy goodies for the new mom and dad and a bib.

      It's not cheap but when I send it to friends they FLIP over it. Congrats to your friend. :)

      1. You can always have something delivered from Roche Brothers or Peapod.

        1. has great product. They send a beautiful basket.

          1. I'd call Formaggio Kitchen. When friends had a baby last year, this was a life-saver. Fresh baked breads, a variety of meats and cheeses, some organic fruit, maybe some local greens, etc.
