Beautiful Cookies from Cake
Cookies arrive individually wrapped for freshness
When you want to send a gift that’s going to delight, a box of classic cookies–fancy but tasteful–(okay, I’ll say it) “Martha Stewart” magazine-cover style cookies, then you should definitely send cookies from Cake Sweet Food Chicago. This Chicago boutique bakery, whose fans do include Martha Stewart, Food & Wine and the New York Times, uses only top-tier ingredients, including Belgium chocolate, fresh cream and European style butter, and bakes in small batches, from scratch and by hand to ensure every sweet bite of their whimsically named but serious desserts is better than the last. Preservatives are never used and cookies and brownies are individually packaged so they remain ultra fresh. Topping it off is stunning packaging that’s sure to delight anyone lucky enough to receive a gift from CSFC!
Cake Sweet Food Chicago layered individual cake.
While you can’t go wrong ordering the cookies, Cake also offers truffles and “jarred” cakes which have come into fashion, you know, cake layered with icings or fillings in an adorable mini-preserves jar so you feel faux old-fashioned like you are enjoying dessert on the steps of a farm house while you devour the contents. A gift from Cake is, in every sense, a gift in good taste.

Organic, Raw, Shelled Walnuts from Nuts.com
How do you like your nuts? Fresh, of course. We mean after that. Do you want them in the shell, shelled, roasted, boiled, raw, organic, salted, unsalted, mixed, spiced, candied, chocolate enrobed? We could go on…
Nuts.com has just about any type of nut you can think of and so much more! Nut flours, nut butters, dried fruits, and an extensive selection of candies. But what’s really helpful is they let you completely customize a tray of nuts and other goodies like dried fruit (organic options too), and candies, so you can really tailor your gift to individual tastes. That’s genius!
For those looking for party favors or themed gifts, they list their candy options by color.
Let’s Go Shopping!
Pricing: It all depends on what you choose but in general expect $10 a pound (give or take) for nuts. Some candies begin as low as $4 a pound. For dried fruit, again, it depends on your selection. Expect $8 per pound (again, give or take).
Shipping: USPS, UPS and FedEx Ground Shipping options keep shipping costs reasonable
