I am visiting a friend this weekend and I would like to arrive with a gift for her and her husband as they are putting us up for the evening. They both enjoy eating so i was thinking that a food basket(less perishable items perhaps as we have a 2.5 hour drive) would be an idea. I work and live in Manhattan. Friend lives in Albany. I was thinking of heading over to Chelsea Market and purchasing some items from the Italian store there (snacks, oil, cheese, prosciutto) but i'm not too sure that i'll have the time to do that before i leave on Friday.
Does anyone have any recommendations of things that would go nicely in such a gift basket?
