Specialty olives as a gift

TimTamGirl | Dec 8, 2012 10:40 PM

My girlfriend is olive-mad and I was wondering where I could find particularly good/rare/otherwise special olives for her for Christmas. We're in Somerville, but I'll travel to anywhere T-accessible. Her tastes are pretty broad, but she much prefers olives with pits to stuffed olives. I'd also welcome suggestions of an olive-of-the-month club, an olive tasting class, or anything else like that. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Addendum: While I said 'as a gift', I don't need them to be in a jar or other packaging for presentation or long-term storage purposes (though it would be fine if they happened to come that way); odds are it would only be a matter of seconds before they were opened and devoured anyway. As long as they're good-quality, I don't care what they come in.
