    Default not a debate - question for the Canadians

    Hello fellow Canadians. (Although I'm in NY.)

    I want to ship a basket to my family for the day before Christmas, out in BC. I was going to send a New York breakfast basket from Zabar's here but they don't ship to Canada.

    Do you know of a place IN Canada that does baskets like this? I'm not looking for sweets, I want something more breakfast/brunchy -- ideally bagels, cream cheese, lox, but could be bagels, cheese, bread, anything like that.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Do they have a safeway in their town? I know they make baskets like that (I think you can request what you want in them), but I'm not sure if they deliver or not. Might be worth calling them to find out.

    Sadly, no. Although I could definitely try just calling around locally to see who does what. That's a great idea! And I found ONE place that will deliver to Canada for an extra $10, which isn't bad at all. The hard part is finding something breakfasty vs. desserty.

    Thank you.

    Do they have a Thrifty's Foods? They make some really nice baskets. They have deli, fruit or desserty type things.

    I will check. The local idea is so smart. I will try it!

    Ooh! Hickory Farms!!
    Holiday Gift Baskets, Food Gift Baskets, Corporate Gifts Online from Hickory Farms Canada
    And, in Canada

    eta - does it have to be kosher? You can just forget Hickory Farms if it does! But, there's lots of gift basket companies that do kosher baskets. I think I used one once called Gift With A Basket or something like that.

    Depending on where they live, there might be an Edible Arrangements near them....

    I looked at Edible Arrangements but they don't have a bakery breakfast basket. I'm just trying to save my mom some work by providing some breakfasty foods.....but thanks! Hickory Farms, same thing: sort of a limited selection meant to be easily shippable.

    I think the local idea is best because it will be very fresh.
