When in doubt about what a person on your gift list would like, it's easy to pick up the phone and send flowers. But not a rack of lamb for two, potatoes au gratin in a smooth bechamel sauce, a freshly baked loaf of rosemary bread, white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, and fresh roasted coffee - all neatly packaged in an attractive, sealed cooler - sound good?
For about what you would pay for a nice flower arrangement, Atlanta-based GourmetStation will ship gourmet fare anywhere in the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii overnight. For a Christmas Eve feast to arrive just in time, be sure to order by 3 p.m. December 23.
The meal warms in a 400-degree oven for 20 minutes. A disposable meat thermometer is included so you can't miss.
Prices include delivery and range from $70 in the Southeast to $105 for delivery on the West Coast. Details: www.gourmetstation.com; 1-888-944-9794.
