  • A Day on the Farms – Cheese Beyond Cow Milk

    We got to see baby Water Buffalo! That may not be enough reason for you to get up in the early morning fog and hop on a van that promises to take you to three farmstead creameries, but that was enough incentive for me. Luckily Wally, my partner in adventure and my husband of 35 years, will jump on any bus that holds the promise of fresh Water Buffalo Mozzarella.

  • Creamy Delicious American Goat Cheese

    I can’t believe I ever hated goat cheese. Seems impossible, as I will gladly slice a piece of Central Coast Goat Gouda, looking forward to its rich nuttiness and creamy texture. I had the same arguments many of my clients post when coming to our shop, “it’s too earthy, too goaty, tastes weird.”

    Why Gift Baskets?

    At Fancifull we realize that you send a gift basket to tell someone that you appreciate them and that they are important to you. You celebrate with them when a baby is born or a wedding or birthday occurs. You feel for them when there is an illness or a passing. You congratulate them on a triumph. You thank them for things they have done for you or with you.
    Our job is to impress them with your thoughtfulness. So what's in the gift basket has to be good. Really good.
    Our policy on food and wine is this: If we won't take it home and put it on our table, it doesn't come in the store. We've traveled far and wide searching out fine wines and food. In Italy and France this is ridiculously easy! Currently we're very glad to be finding equally excellent products from artisan producers in the US! We hold to the same standards for the baby items and bath products we carry.
    Also, your gift has to arrive on time - often in a hurry. Our service record is second to none. And because we are a real store and your gift baskets are made here we can get things done quickly for you, including same day delivery in the Los Angeles area.
    Details on some of our more popular gift basket categories are in the column to the right.

  • Our Mission

    Our commitment to quality and personalized service stands alone in an era of mass production:

    Creating artisan baskets filled with real food and unusual finds.

    Assuring quality by trying every wine, cheese, cookie, and edible product we sell so you know you are sending the best.

    Searching continually-sometimes across the globe-to bring you new and exciting products. We refuse to carry products you can find on every supermarket shelf. What is the fun in that?

    Participating in Slow Food USA and subscribing to their belief in food that is good, clean, and fair.

    Going green in our business practices and the items we carry by including more all natural and organic foods, baby items, bath products, and gifts.

    Quickly and reliably delivering your gifts down the street or around the world.

    Cultivating our relationship with you through in-store tastings and events, so together, we all can learn more about, and share our passion for, the good things in life.

  • Baby Gift Baskets

    Radio Flyer Bundle of Joy Baby Gift Basket

    What a joyous gift occasion - welcoming a new life to the world! We try to include useful and safe items that will have lasting use for the family. We only use organic bath products and many of the baby outfits, towels and blankets are also made from organic materials. The Radio Flyer Wagon pictured here is one of our most popular baby gift baskets.

    • Wine Gift Baskets

      Warm Wishes Wine Gift Basket

      We taste a lot of wines here at Fancifull - over a hundred wines a year - and visit many of the wineries we are interested in. We recently visited a wine maker in Barolo, Italy, whose wines are here in our store. Our job is to bring you the best values we can find. Most of these are from small family vineyards and reflect the care and passion that goes into making them. You aren't going to find these on any supermarket shelf, but you will love drinking them as will those who receive our wine gift baskets.

    • Custom Gift Baskets

      Disaronno promotional Gift Basket

      Something we're especially good at is creating custom gift baskets. They may be for promoting a new product, promoting a new use for an already known brand (like the Disaronno used-as-mixer with Moet & Chandon example shown here), or for showing your company's logo inside of a gorgeous gift for a charity auction or any other purpose. Send us your logo items for your gift baskets - we'll make you look good!
