Vino de Milo
Tomato Sauce Gift Box

The fact that we would even consider giving someone a jarred tomato sauce as a gift says a lot about how special it is. In fact, it’s the best line of sauces we’ve encountered to date—we could eat them from the jar without ever making the pasta, chicken or lamb. The Italian Works 1 gift box features one jar each of the Mediterranean Pinot Grigio, Portobello Shiraz, Tuscan Merlot, a set of four wine charms and a recipe book. Read our review of Vino de Milo, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

Melissa’s World Variety Produce
Exotic Fruits & Vegetables

Harry & David is the “brand name” in fruits by mail, but Melissa’s has the really interesting goods. You’ll be fascinated just looking at the fruits and vegetables on their website, and any foodie would love to receive a box. They have their own “fruit of the month” or “vegetable of the month” club, of course. Most people have never had a regular persimmon ( the “Apple of the Orient”), much less one of these special yellow cinnamon persimmons (wonderful plain, in fruit salads and desserts, and stuffings).
