Help - need to send a fruit basket (delivered) froms somewhere in London ASAP [moved from Home Cooking]

  • 7

Just found out a family member was seriously ill this past weekend and hospitalized. Want to send a foodie basket, or a nice fruit basket, but I live out of town.
Where can I send one that they will deliver?
Remark?Sunripe?

  1. Fortnum & Mason does very nice gift baskets, but I'm not sure about fruit. I would imagine they do. I usually get one from relatives in America, and they are quite posh.I think the same would be true of Harvey Nichols, Selfridge's etc.

    1. Try Riverford (http://www.riverford.co.uk/) lovely organic fruit, and they do a fruit only box as well as veg boxes. Marks & Spencer also do fruit baskets (http://bit.ly/aTWZSG) as do Interflora (http://bit.ly/dxFjHp)

      1. I would send something from a food hall like harrods, selfridges or fortnums - I've had a daughter in hospital and most places have an m&s very near to the hosp - so great to send things that are nice on toast, decent tea bags or coffee, or a delicious slice of pork pie or game pie or something for a snack. Or at least if you're sending fruit, make sure it's interesting fruit! I ate TONS of grapes and bananas....

          1. Edible Arrangements would probably have a London ON location:

            Otherwise just googling "London Ontario gift basket" got tons of hits:

            etc.
