I'm sure you'll get more up to date suggestions, but I posed a similar question a couple of years ago. Here are the answers: http://food52.com/hotline...

I've used Omaha Steaks a few times and got great service & products-but I'll warn you, getting off their email list list has proved difficult!

Luxardo maraschino cherries to put in a Manhattan. A teensy luxury worth every penny. Zingerman's has them. And have you looked at the excellent smoked salmon and other smoked fish things made by Ducktrap River in Maine? http://www.ducktrap.com...

Tasterie has great mail-order boxes, with options for various allergies and dietary restrictions.

VeganCuts and ConsciousBox are also great options.

Shatila.com makes lovely boxes of bakhlava and packages them nicely, and is quite affordable.

I also have sent many gifts from Zingerman's, but for artisan Italian products that are unique, though expensive, nobody beats Gustiamo.com

Speaking of pork...Benton's bacon from Madisonville,TN is to die for. It will become a family tradition.

I've given and received bacon and ham from nueskes.com in Wisconsin.
They have mostly applewood smoked bacon and hams (the bacon is still my fave) and in the last couple of years have started making cherrywood smoked bacon. Oh my!
The shipping adds quite a bit to the cost, but most if not all of their products have to ship with refrigerated packs. Outstanding products.

If the person is a foodie, the demi glacé concentrates from More Than Gourmet are a wonderful gift. They also have a vegetable concentrate in addition to beef/veal, chicken, etc.
