Suggestions/Recommendations for Holiday Gift baskets to order to be Shipped?

Looking for recommendations/suggestionss for gifts (not necessarily food items) to be sent out of state for the holidays.  I'm not looking to package and mail myself, but rather companies who you purchase from and send with possibly free shipping. 

 

Last year, I purchase some of Costco's gift baskets and they included shipping to whomever you chose and a scheduled date as well. 

 

Looking for other options like this that you might have personally used and can recommend.

I've used Harry & David the past few years to send a basket to my bro and SIL.  They seemed to enjoy what they received!!  They are cheese and fruit lovers so that is what I order.

If I had a choice between the brand Costco sells, I think it may be Wine Country (?) or Harry & David I would go with Harry & David.

My Mom and I lived in different states for 20 years and out of all of those the best gift basket she ever sent me was Harry & David.  That pepper and onion relish is to just die for!!
