Gift baskets - Clementine's, Joan's, where else?

Queequeg Nov 28, 2008 11:51 AM

Hi all - I posted a similar topic earlier, but it was removed to the general board because, I think, my request wasn't specific enough. Sorry moderators!

I'm looking to pick up a gift basket for a good friend of mine, from anywhere on the westside to silverlake. I've received one from Clementine's before, and it was lovely; I've heard good things about the baskets from Joan's on Third as well. Any other recommendations from gift-receiving and gift-giving Hounds?

Oh, and my friend is not a picky eater at all; as long as it's good, she'll devour it.

        I stopped in Urth Caffe recently, and they handed me a little card advertising their holiday gift baskets. From memory, it was all(?) baked goods. Urth's baked items are quite delicious-- but still that might be a little one-dimensional.

          Susina can make baskets, just let them know the kind of stuff you'd like to be included.

            I LOVE Clementine's! You might also check out Jamaica's Cakes on Pico -- she does a really nice job with presentation of her baked goods and would probably put together a great gift basket.

              Yesterday, we received a lovely gift basket from Beverly Hills Cheese Store. It had 3 types of cheese, homemade tapenade, honey, chocolate truffles & crackers. We devoured it!!

              I'm sure they can make to your specifications as most places can for gift baskets.

                I use Beverly Hills Cheese Store for everything.
                I've received several baskets from them and have shipped out of the state and everywhere in the country using their products.
                Without a doubt....fabulous and a lovely wine selection.
