Great mail order food gifts you give

StrawbrryF | Dec 1, 200902:10 PM     109

Chow editors posted their top 10 mail-order food gifts (here: http://www.chow.com/stories/11964 ) and I started a comment thread on other great food gifts to give which has proven to be a treasure trove.

People had some great suggestions:

Many recommended Harry & David (http://www.harryanddavid.com/gifts/st... )

HillJ suggested Bella Viva (www.bellaviva.com )

Raedia sends apples from http://www.honeycrispvermont.com

amazinc's pays dividends in the spring: asparagus (http://www.misterspear.com/ct_asparag... )

Cooder had a whole list of local Texas products
"CollinsStreetBakery.com for cakes, cheesecakes and pecan pie
NBSmokehouse.com for ham, bacon, sausage
LammesCandies.com for chocolate pralines
PittmanDavis.com for fruit
SanSaba pecans and Austin nuts"

and bellywizard went DIY with sourdough starter kits (http://www.sourdo.com )

I think these are all amazing ideas and I never would have heard of them were it not for amazing Chowhounds. I've already ordered asparagus and a bunch of apples.

So, what do you send? I think we can create a great, eater-approved mail order directory for all kinds of items.
