Gift Baskets

A friend of mine just had a baby and I want to send them a nice gift basket, with some nice food and maybe a few baby things. Can anyone recommend a good place that I can order from?

  1. With respect, why not DIY? Increasingly, I find gift baskets poor value: over-priced and often stuffed with iffy quality "look-alike" goodies. Since you know the friend--and presumably their likes/tastes--why not give 'em what they love. I give these to friends now even though it takes more time and requires some shopping. The time and care are always appreciated.

    1. All The Best has really nice food baskets. Maybe you can just give them some baby things to add to one of their baskets -

      1. When my friends had a baby recently, the gifts they valued most were things to help with cooking and cleaning. Consider gift certificates for personal chefs, cleaning service like Molly Maid or else order them dinner by delivery. It will make as big an impact as a gift basket.

          Superb suggestions merlot143. Very creative and practical not to mention thoughtful and personal.

          If the OP must GB, then I have to agree with the DIY suggestions.
