Not food, but I have sent flowers more than once from Send flowers, plants, & gifts baskets. Flower delivery from ProFlowers. and they are always lovely and they will resend if there is a problem.

I have also sent entertainment books from The 2009 Entertainment® Book - Great Savings on Dining, Shopping, Travel, Attractions, Movie Tickets & More!
They are a bit slow.

Double bonus today we got some tangerines and raw almonds from Caifornia and a smoked turkey from another friend if it's the same turkey they sent last year I'm in heaven it was so moist with just a light smoking meat pink sooo good.

The only food gifts I'm making this year are for my mother. She doesn't cook anymore so I've made/making a few of her favorites for the freezer.

I have sent lots of beautiful fruit from Gregory's Groves?

Christmas tangerines, sugar baby honeybells, honeybells, etc. A very traditional Italian Christmas present (tangerines).

Thumbs up Fruitcakes!

A friend made and gave me two fruitcakes with rum. Man, are they ever delicious.

I mailed some cookies out yesterday-I've never done that before, so I'm curious as to whether they will arrive intact or not. I think I packed them well enough.........?
Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park!!!

not too many, but for one special friend, I did send the fab frozen, ready-to-bake croissants from Williams-Sonoma. They should be there for them to enjoy on Christmas morning.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

One of my wifes clients sent her a box of fruit from Hale. It had 9 seedless nectarines and three seedless grapefruits in it. Yum, turned the nectarines into orange juice, made for a really tasty drink.
