Alternatives to sending flowers?

Chris VR | Sep 10, 2002 10:19 AM

When a special occasion comes up (birthday, engagement, baby birth), I like to be unique and not send the cliched flower arrangement.

I'm looking for suggestions for interesting (preferably food oriented) flower arrangement-like things that can be sent through the mail with a minumum of effort on my part (order by phone or web, give credit card, arrangement shows up within 2 days with no further effort on my part.) Gift baskets are nice, but I prefer things that mimic flower arrangements.

One of my standbys has been cookie bouquets (at link below), and I've recently found out about a place that makes fresh fruit bouquets (http://www.ediblearrangements.com). Any other suggestions along these lines? Preferably costing about the same as the flowers: $40-$60, with delivery fees.
