Gifts come in all shapes and sizes -- even if they're shaped like a piece of salmon or steak.
The thoughtfulness of sending flowers or chocolates is fine but those in search of something different, something unconventional and something that truly makes a statement might want to consider sending food -- yes, food, - through the mail.
And we're not talking about just any, old food or frozen, flawed entrees straight from the freezer to your dining room table, but rather a delectable array of gourmet dishes you'd find at a five-star restaurant. Above and beyond just dinners, a majority of these direct-to-door delivery services also dabble in appetizers and specialty desserts.
These meals are more than just a terrific gift idea but also serve a practical purpose as well. For example, companies such as Impromptu Meals and Gourmet Station doesn't just piece together the standard dinner for two or family style cuisine with little or not purpose behind each carefully crafted morsel of food.
Gourmet Station especially stands out as they showcase the same fine-dining you'd expect from gourmet food gifts but specifically designs meals for various occasions, such as a new baby, congratulatory sentiments, anniversaries or something as simple as thinking of you or thank you. Gourmet Station and Impromptu Meals don't simply slap together a sub-par meal but rather fancy themselves, and rightfully so, as artists. The dinner plate is a blank canvas and the preparation is equally as paramount as taste. Gourmet Station also features not only remarkable American cuisine but also dishes with a Cajun or Tuscan feel to them.
