It all started back in 1934, when two brothers traveled to New York and San Francisco to sell their incredibly sweet and juicy Royal Riviera® Pears to business executives. These two brothers were our founders, Harry and David Holmes, and the Royal Riviera® Pears were an instant hit. It's been almost 80 years since then and our range of high quality gifts has expanded to include the best fresh fruit gifts around, a variety of gourmet chocolate gifts, cookie gifts, cheesecakes and much more.
Today, our specialty chocolates and sweets are delicious treats to enjoy at any occasion. From gourmet truffles and hand-dipped chocolate fruit to cookies, pies and cakes. It's all made with the finest ingredients to ensure you're choosing true quality with a gourmet food gift from Harry & David.
Everyone loves receiving presents. Especially surprise birthday gift baskets filled with gourmet treats delivered directly to their door. For generations, our food gifts have been widely appreciated as birthday gifts. The highlight of most birthday celebrations is the cake. We can send a birthday cake from our bakery directly to your party. Choose from decadent chocolate or classic white birthday cakes. Our bakers use premium ingredients, including rich dark chocolate, real butter, vanilla and a creamy chocolate cream cheese frosting to craft an incredibly rich chocolate birthday cake. The white birthday cake is a vanilla double layer with a blend of white chocolate, cream cheese and butter for the filling and frosting. Both cakes feature festive colored confetti decorations. Our birthday cake delivery service makes party planning a breeze. Our perfectly wrapped boxes, bow-tied baskets of savory snacks, sweet treats and premium fruit are all great gift ideas as well as party pleasers. Since everyone enjoys delicious gourmet food gifts, you're certain to find birthday gift baskets to match your gift list. Royal Riviera® Pears are exceptional birthday gifts for her.
