Hey guys,

Toronto-hound in need of advice.

I'm planning on sending a good friend of mine a birthday present - he works in Redmond and I'm having it delivered to his office. I was considering a box of brownies from Zingerman's but was wondering if you had any other suggestions for baked good/other food-ish gifts I could order online and have delivered to him. Something under $50 would be ideal...I'd love to be able to order cupcakes or something but have no idea what would be good around there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Salumi has a website and does mail-order, though cured meats can travel without refrigeration.

      How about a bottle of wine. If you buy it from a shop that has a few local products, they could throw in some chocolate or cheese. You might try queso y vino, found here:

      I always send a selection of 3400 Phinney bars from Theo Chocolates as a gift. People go bonkers for the unique flavors.

        Fran's Salted Carmels are always a crowd pleaser.

          I love Trophy Cupcakes. I bet they'd be able to work out a delivery to Redmond. http://www.trophycupcakes.com/

            One of the admin assistants at work bought a large order of cup cakes from trophy and they were amazing ! We have a monthly celebrations for birthdays and we all raved about the quality and the unique variations they provided. Really excellent place :)

            surely you'd rather send him something from toronto (not exactly a culinary desert...) than something he can find locally?

              well he's from here, so he's always visiting
              I'm looking for something local since baked goods aren't something I would want to send from Toronto, there's nothing I can think of that would stand up that well to the distance
