Really Nice Holiday Gift Basket in SF?

OliverB | Dec 18, 2012 08:11 AM

I'm driving up to SoCal to stay with my girlfriend's family for the holidays. I've met her parents once before, earlier this summer, but haven't really spent much time with them and don't know them very well. We aren't that close yet. I need to bring them some sort of gift for the holidays though, and I have no clude what to pick up. I'm thinking a really nice gift basket of artisanal chocolates, teas, ground coffee, confections, preserves, local olive oils or regional wine, etc. I don't want to pick up commercial grade stuff (nix on Ghiradelli or Hershey's etc); I want unique to S.F. homemade or small-batch items that are ornamentally packaged and would make for a really nice gift. Imported chocolates, candies/sweets, teas, coffees, jams, honey, and so on would also work. I'd like to spend between $50-$100 max! Is there anywhere in San Francisco offering pre-arranged gift baskets that might fit this bill? I unfortunately can't afford to spend a lot of time or effort on this, so I'm looking for something easy and convenient, yet really nice! Can anyone help me out with a holiday gift basket in the city?
