1. Assorted Dried Fruit and Nut on Bamboo Board

Dry Fruit on Tray Golden StateArtfully arranged dried fruit and nuts can be presented on innovative trays. There are a couple of great options online with a bonus: the tray can work as a keepsake after the dried fruit and nut has been all eaten up.

Nuts-on-tray gift sets from my wishlist: Golden State Fruit Pear-Shaped Serving Tray and Vacaville Wooden Cheese Platter.


2. Gourmet Coffee Gift Box

Coffee SamplerCoffee conoisseurs will love these combo packs of fresh artisanal roasts from Seattle. You could pick from Bean Box’s basic Gourmet Coffee Sampler to more exotic sets such as the Coffee + Chocolate Tasting Box. In the Coffee + Chocolate Tasting Box, eight types of coffee are paired with eight types of chocolates, with tasting notes for each pairing.

Prefer biscotti over chocolate? There’s something for you as well: a Coffee  + Biscotti Tasting Box.


3. Preserves Collection
