I'm in the US, a friend in Australia is going through a really rough time after surgery... I'd like to get her something nice delivered. I was thinking a food hamper would be nice. The catch is that she can't have gluten or lactose. Does anyone know a site where I could order a gluten free gift/meal service/fruit basket?
I'm open to other non-food ideas too.

Need to gift a wine bottle to someone who enjoys red wine. I don't know what type of red.
There are so many brands to chose from so since I don't know his taste I would prefer to give something from a recognized winery. Don't want him to think I picked the cheapest red :)
Couple of brands that come to mind:
Budget: up-to $50

In a few days I will be staying with friend's family in western France, at a house they own. I will be in the UK the next few days.
Normally I would bring wine or chocolates as a thank you for the accommodation, but France does these much better and cheaper than the UK (I am told). I am Canadian. What could I bring that would still be a great gift, that I could find in London? It should be something like food or drink, and something of benefit to people on vacation. Price about $50. The friends I am visiting are French/Canadian and appreciate quality/luxury

I would like to give my parents some type of meal-delivery as a gift for Christmas. Ideally I would like to do a once a month type thing (like wine of the month or something related but with food that doesn't have to be prepared beyond popping in the oven) but everything I find is more like a diet delivery service, like Seattle Sutton, that requires a weekly commitment. Can't afford that! My parents live in the north suburbs of Chicago. thanks!!

This Christmas, I'm giving everyone the gift of delicious and healthy home-cooked meals, but I'm blanking on how to wrap and/or present them at the Christmas Eve festivities. Everything will be pre-frozen, which probably rules out putting them by the tree with the other gifts, and the only other solution I can think of is leaving them in my car and letting everyone take theirs on the way home, which is lame. There must be a better way. [more inside]

In previous years I've made a lot of cookies
to give away to friends and family around the holidays. This year I'd like to do something a little different, but still make it a gift of food. [more inside]

My mother is coming to visit me in Poland from our home in California and has asked me what foods she can bring me from Trader Joe's that are worth her bringing over. I have some ideas, but as I've been away so long (over a year), I want to make sure we land at the intersection of still-in-the-storeness, luggage space allowance, practicality and deliciousness.

Ham it up: Need recommendations for an especially delicious and good-quality mail-order ham, as a holiday gift for ham-lovers. Something that costs less than Harry & David's $100 ham would be appreciated.

Need help with a gift for my spouse. She likes to read memoirs (not biographies) focused on food and/or travel. She's mined this category heaviliy, so titles published this year are a plus.
