The Sky’s The Limit (Over $100)

Sometimes money is no object. In this “I’ve seen it all and have everything” world, some gifts show just how much you’re trying to spoil that special someone. Shower them with cheese. (Seriously, who doesn’t like cheese?) And I don’t mean the prepackaged stuff in the dairy aisle at the grocery store. The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club will send the lucky giftee a scrumptious assortment of fine cheeses from around the world every month for a year.

Start a “RAWvolution.” This raw food delivery service makes meal time easy and delicious for the truly health conscious. The Box is a prepared, raw meal package made with all organic ingredients. Soups, salads, entrees and desserts for four are included.

What ex-pat New Yorker, New Yorker wannabee or just plain old foodie wouldn’t want a taste of the City at holiday time? Zabar’s is Manhattan institution, and their specialty foods are beyond compare. Treat someone to an extra special New York Breakfast Basket, and they will keep treating you in the special way they did to deserve it in the first place.

Want to completely blow someone’s mind with luxurious high-end chocolates, and lots of them? The Passion Tower from Recchiuti Confections is the way to go. They will definitely NOT find a Kit Kat in this box. What they will find is chocolatey bliss.

Fortunately for Spanish food aficionados, jamón serrano — Italian prosciutto’s sexier cousin — became legal to import a few years back. La Tienda will ship Spain’s version of a country ham from the homeland to your favorite meat lover. And then they can invite you over for Christmas dinner.

    Great article. I would like to add a website that actually has over 30 different gourmet gift clubs ranging from salsa, tea, olive oil and BBQ sauce of the month clubs to clubs like soda of the month and Ketchup of the Month. Take a look at to get a true look at a of the Month club website.

    It’d MAYBE be worth the price if it was no more than $15 but almost $40!?!? No way. That was a isputd purchase on my behalf. The largest box on the bottom is the size of my hand and, obviously, it gets smaller as it goes to the top. And, because of the box sizes, there wasn’t much in the plastic bags inside each one. They stuff some of the boxes with shredded tissue to make it look like there’s more too. The pro’s about it are that it’s definitely asthetically pleasing with the gold boxes and red bow, and the treats inside were very good, though very few. My suggestion would be to skip this product and find something that isn’t such a huge rip-off.
