Low-risk foodie basket - Edmonton

I'm work in Calgary and need to send a gift basket to one of our managers in Edmonton. I'd like to send one that is relatively "low-risk"--i.e. not too exotic foods, consistent quality, won't spoil if left at room temperature for a day, won't be crushed easily, etc.

Any suggestions for a high-quality foodie store that puts together gift baskets and delivers them to business addresses? We're looking to spend ~$100 on the basket, including wrap and contents (delivery and tax can be extra).

Wine is okay, as long as it's not the only thing in the basket. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. Sunterra makes tasty looking foodie type baskets, that fit your criteria - at least they do during Christmas time.

    Not sure about delivery though.

    Couple of locations in Edmonton and Calgary.

      My favorite wine shop is Fine Wines by Liquor Select, they may do things other than wine in their gift baskets.

      Paddy's Cheese does baskets....don't know about delivery

    2. Thanks, boxitup and cleopatra, for your suggestions. I think I am going to try Transcend Coffee as I think the manager likes coffee (will need to verify with my colleague tomorrow). I let you know how it goes!
