There are tons of options out there, and you're not even limited to ordering from a restaurant. The choices are endless and these snacks are great addition to gift together with bedside organiser.

Here are some great options if you want to send a neat food present to someone:

Chocolate-Dipped Fruits

Chocolate-dipped fruits are a classic. They are a very common gift because they are perfect if you want to send something that is typically associated with Valentine's and Christmas, but they could also make for fantastic gifts at any point of the year.

Strawberries and cherries are the most popular variant, but there really isn't much stopping you from trying out other fruits. You can find these in specialty stores or even make them yourself to add that extra personal touch. Get some melted chocolate or chocolate sauce and a pack of fruits, and you're good to go.

Assorted Candies

This is especially good if you know the person well enough to figure out their favorites. You can even take the time to find rare brands or ones from your recipient's childhood. The fun thing about assorted candies and chocolate bars is that the variety makes it something they can go back to snack on any time without getting bored of the flavor.

You can even make it more thoughtful by putting the assortment into a little bedside organiser that they can fit into their space. This way, they have a nice little snack and categories to pick from when they're relaxing in bed.


It's pretty safe to say that most everyone has a soft spot for cookies. The best part is that they're effortless to send and transport. You can send an assortment, and it's up to you if you're sending cookie tins or freshly baked boxes.

Another way to go about this if you're feeling creative is to send a cookie recipe with all the ingredients bagged and stored. Then, you simply pack it all together in nice packaging, and you can give them the chance to have some fun trying their hand at cookie-making. You could throw in some already-baked cookies to give them a taste of what they could make.

Spice Set

If you know someone who cooks or appreciates that extra flavor in their life, you can't really go wrong with a curated spice set. It's up to you if you want to send a set of bottled sauces or powdered spices in jars. It's a fun and exciting way to add some variety to their food.

Jam Collection

If you want something that feels classy yet festive, a collection of different jam varieties is excellent. You can mix and match as you please and immediately perk up someone's breakfast menu in the process.

Coffee and Tea Samplers

Send one or both to someone you know who loves to try out different flavors and drinks. Tea and coffee lovers will appreciate the opportunity to get specialty flavors or artisanal mixes, especially if you find a set with visually pleasing packaging.


There are many other things you can get, but the bottom line is that you can't go wrong with food. It's the ultimate gift because it's universal—everyone enjoys a decadent treat from time to time. The good thing about these options is that they can enjoy them for an extended time and store them, as opposed to ordering food that they'll have to consume right away.
