What are some local L.A. yummies that will deliver their goods, along with a card for a nice thank-you gift? Cupcakes? Chocolates?
Two things they must do: be from L.A. and deliver/ship :)

    Valerie Confections comes to mind - and they are having some sort of open house today/tomorrow/saturday.

      What kind of open house? I've been curious about this place and haven't made it in yet. All the construction on Beverly makes me tune out some of the nice local spots.
      Are they related to L'artisan du chocolat?

        Lucygoosey-
        So sorry I didn't get back to you in time. I read on one of the myriad emails I get (daily candy, etc) that they were doing something over the weekend. I didn't go but have been before. Their toffee is delicious, beautifully wrapped but not cheap! The space is small - mostly production - with a tiny counter. But they are lovely to work with and I highly recommend them. You can also buy some of their products at Silverlake Wine, Surfas and other retailers.
        And while I am not familiar w/ L'Artisan, given the address, I'm guessing that maybe they are somehow related.

      Also, if the delivery is local, POP Candy does a great job. I just got the halloween toffee I ordered from them delivered to my house and it's adorable. They will cutomize it for you and are incredibly nice people:

              I got a thank you gift box of assorted treats a couple months ago from a company called Cookie Good - www.cookiegood.com

              No one in the office had heard of it before, but the cookies and bars were delicious - much better than most of the other deliveries we've had.

                  Cookie Casa cupcakes are the best. Chocolate cake with white icing (chocolate chips in the cake) is the most popular. Whenever our office orders them everyone goes crazy for them. Taste like homemade. They now offer mini ones too.

                    I can always depend upon Mrs. Beasley's to send a nice assortment of fresh goodies and they have lots of different packages and prices:

                    Littlejohn's English Toffee, to my surprise, is incredibly good. From the Farmer's Market at 3rd and Fairfax.

                      Oh great call SilverlakeGirl! And a heckuva lot cheaper than my original suggestion.

                      I heard about the Cookie Couture on KFI 640 AM; haven't had them myself, but they're gorgeous goodies: http://www.thecookiecouture.com/index...
