I need to send a Gift Basket to some friends in Florida. Previously, I have ordered from Dartagnan. Does anybody have a favorite company that they like to use?

Todd,

All my recommendations are West Coast, which I'm not sure is appropriate for a gift coming from Michegan. Surely there's a cheese basket company up there?

Josh,
My friends are from Michigan. They are my neighbors and only live a couple of blocks away from me during the Summer. They also have a house in Fort Lauderdale and they are starting their HOTEL season. Between now and March, they will be hosting family and friends. Mark told me they will only have two weeks without guests between now and the end of March. I am at a loss as to what to send this year.

If they are drinkers I'd send wine. I don't have a company to suggest though.
this site might help - http://gift-baskets-review.toptenreviews.com/

I'm a big fan of teavana and David's teas if they are into that type of thing. They do great baskets in store, not sure if they do a delivery service.

As jean mentioned, I don't think you could go wrong with wine anytime.
Is there a reason you don't want to use Dartagnan again? Or are you just wanting something new.
What did you send from Dartagnan, by the way?

I've sent gift boxes of assorted olive oils and vinegars from Hare Hollow. Everyone loves them.

Well Duh. I was just there in December. I think I am going to send them a Reuben Sandwich kit.

Thanks for the great suggestion.
