Help - need to send a fruit basket (delivered) froms somewhere in London ASAP [moved from Home Cooking]
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?
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.
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....
Wright's Send a Basket is first place I'd go, since they've been doing it the longest in London, and have a good reputation:
There is an edible arrangements place in Hyde Park, if you want to send a fruit bouquet.
Remark has great gift baskets (the one I received was in the $80-$100 range), but they don't have a website as far as I know. They probably would deliver one, if you call & ask. For foodie items, Remark's basket would probably be a little more deluxe than a Wright's basket.
Here is Remark's contact info: http://www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Ontario...
I wasn't that impressed by Sunripe the last time I was there.
