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.
Congratulatory gifts are perhaps the most fun to shop for. The opportunity to tangibly express joy in the success and good fortune of others is a real treat. Life is full of occasions that call for congratulations gifts -- like a wedding, a new baby, or anniversary celebration. Taking the time to pick out a lovely gift and then envisioning how much the recipient will appreciate it allows us to share in the excitement of their accomplishments. The most common congratulations flowers are bouquets of white lilies. The lily flower symbolizes purity and refined beauty and is popular at weddings and as a present for new mothers. Our white lily bouquet is an elegant arrangement of oriental lilies, Bells of Ireland and eucalyptus, delivered fresh and blooming in a glass vase. We fill our congratulations gift baskets with a wide assortment of gourmet delights. For an indulgent celebration with a few guests, the Crater Lake Gift Basket Deluxe will leave everyone satisfied. It contains a collection of some of our favorite treats, including Royal Riviera® Pears, Moose Munch® Popcorn, cheddar cheese, crackers, cookies, pepper and onion relish, chocolate cherries, chocolate truffles and mints. In our large selection of congratulations gift baskets you’ll find a basket overflowing with nine different types of bakery fresh cookies, a gift featuring over eight pounds of exotic premium fresh fruit, an elegantly wrapped box of liquor-flavored chocolate truffles and several congratulations gifts containing exquisite wines. Once you’ve picked out the perfect congratulatory gift, we’ll ensure it arrives on time and in perfect condition, guaranteed.
