Coolest thing to send someone for their birthday? Cookie, Donuts, etc??

My Dad is visiting the Boston area over his birthday and I would like to have something cool delivered to his hotel, which is in Chelsea. I was thinking a basket of cookies or something. Anyone have a good suggestion about something cool to send that is yummy and unique? Thanks!!

  1. I've sent Dancing Deer cookies and they've been well-received and I've sent nuts from fastaccii in watertown which are always wonderful. both are on line so you can visit their web sites and see what sounds like your Dad's cup of tea, so to speak.

    1. well, will he have a refrigerator? if it were me, I'd want some great bread or crackers, excellent cheeses, and some wine. If he wants sweets, that's a whole different category. If he's alone, he'd want a lesser amount or in a tin so he can preserve them for a bit...both suggestions below ship in tins for saving....

        1. Dancing Deer is a good suggestion. If you wanted fresh bakery goods, it looks like you can order from Flour Bakery or Kiss Ass Cupcakes via Grub Hub. I've never done that though so I can't say for sure it's a good idea. I have ordered from Dancing Deer, however, and was very pleased.

            Search this board for reviews on Kickass Cupcakes (assuming that's what is being referred to) - I would not recommend they be sent to anyone based on several bad experiences - they are the bottom of the mediocre cupcake store barrel.
