Food gift basket recommendations?

sfwork May 18, 2011 02:59 PM

Let me start by saying: I am not interested in an Edible Arrangement fruit basket with cantaloupes and strawberries arranged like flowers. I would like to send my niece (she's a teenager) a nice birthday gift that she can share with her friends at her birthday sleepover. Any suggestions?

    Wine Country Gift Baskets seem to have a lot of non-alcoholic gift baskets. I know they have chocolate and cookie baskets without wine.

      Draeger's does great custom gift baskets at a variety of prices.

        I was looking for a Thank you gift recently and I came across


        If you want a specifically SF themed basket.

        I think anything with chocolate and cookies would be a big hit for the birthday sleepover.

        If it doesn't need to be specific to SF, there is always the old standby of Harry and David, they have lots of options with chocolate, cookies, cheesecake, etc. and they deliver quickly anywhere.

          Market Hall in Rockridge offers that service

            As does Bi Rite and I believe Canyon Market.

            I suggest checking out http://www.foodzie.com. A good # of Bay Area proprietors on there. I bet the shipment could be amazing.

            I have no ties to them at all. Just a fan :)

                It does without the period at the end. And you can choose something local to either sender or recipient, including, for example, La Cocina's great baskets.
