There’s no pick-up or driving needed from your or the happy recipient. Not to mention, deliveries are perfect for surprising loved ones who are, unfortunately, not living nearby.

Below you’ll find huge surprises and small treats, all sure to brighten up a close friend or family member’s day and let them know you’re thinking about them. Let’s get started! 

Magical Holiday Popcorn Pail from The Popcorn Factory: First up is the sweetest holiday delivery we received from The Popcorn Factory this month, a tin stuffed with a generous amount of magical popcorn. As I describe in my more in-depth review of the item, the Magical Holiday Popcorn Pail’s decor can be easily removed so the recipient can keep.

The popcorn flavor is Holiday Cookie Dough, which can be detected in an aftertaste, but, before that, it’s just a sweet and satisfying taste. This is perfect for those who have a sweet tooth. Find it at The Popcorn Factory HERE, the 15.2oz tin is priced at $32.99.

Harry & David Hanukkah Cookie Box: Who said we only had Christmas gifts to share? Harry & David has gifts for everyone! Counting down the days until Hanukkah just got more delicious! Or, since this is a last-minute gift, enjoy it all in one sitting (just be sure to share to avoid a massive sugar rush).

Inside this beautifully decorated box are 12 bite-size shortbread cookies and 6 Hanukkah-decorated cookies. The bite-size cookies are my favorite as I can’t resist a good shortbread cookie. This is also an elegant gift to bring to the host of a party. Find it HERE, priced at $34.99 a box.

Llama Cookie Tin

Fa La La La Llama Cookie Tin from Cheryl’s Cookies: In my review, I called this the perfect cookie sampler from Cheryl’s Cookies! If this is your first time ordering from the brand, you’re in for a treat! The Fa La La La Llama Cookie Tin has a nice variety of some of the best cookies Cheryl’s Cookies has to offer. I also love the fun (and easily removable) llama wrap. One tin is priced at $24.99, find it HERE.

Tree and Truck pails of popcorn: If you enjoyed learning about the sampler tin from Cheryl’s Cookies, you’ll love this gift from The Popcorn Factory! The Tree Pail of Popcorn (also available in Truck Pail of Popcorn) includes the brand’s three most popular popcorn flavors — butter, cheese, and caramel. All three bags are included in a holiday decorated pail the recipient can keep to add to their Christmas decor. At $19.99, this is another budget-friendly gift under $30. Find it HERE.

Miss Grace Mini Bundt Cake Sampler from Cheryl’s Cookies: I recommended this product to have at your Thanksgiving table. If you didn’t listen, you missed out! This bundt cake sampler from Cheryl’s Cookies is delicious! And hey, you can still enjoy one at an upcoming holiday party.

The assortment includes 5 mini cakes: Lemon, chocolate fudge, confetti, and two lemon cranberry. From these, the lemon cranberry and chocolate fudge are my two favorites! Send to a loved one and you’ll be providing them with 5 generous desserts. Find them HERE, priced at $39.99.

Don’t forget, the above brands are always offering special discounts and sales, especially for the holidays! Keep an eye out to save even more. Which of the above treats will you be sending a loved one this holiday season?
