Gourmet Foods For Christmas Gift Baskets?

I've decided to make treat boxes for all of my boss, colleagues and friends this Christmas.
I'm not going to do any cooking or baking this year because my kitchen is in the process of being remodeled.
I need your help some help with great ideas: Does anyone have any suggestions for yummy and unique treats to put in the boxes (beyond sugar cookies) that can be ordered online or bought in stores (I commute between Chicago and Seattle)? I'm planning on spending around $50 - $60 on each basket.
Any ideas for delicious treats are appreciated!

  1. I'm a huge fan of the Stollen Sterntaler Bakery makes ( Super yummy with loads of raisins, fruit, almonds and marzipan. They make Baby Christmas Stollen which would make a nice fit for a Gift Basket.
    Oh, and the Stollen are also being sold at the Metropolitan Market in Seattle. I just saw them there last weekend.
