Providence Gift Baskets Delivered

Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, was one of the first cities to be established in the U.S. In addition to being home to many of our nations “firsts,” Providence is known for its jewelry, silverware and service industries, as well as its watery surroundings, which influence its coastal cuisine. From its classic beginnings to its contemporary students, sports, and pop culture references, the city offers boatloads of inspiration for our Providence gift baskets, which include fresh-dipped berries, dried fruit, wine and cheese platters, and delicious donuts!

Providence Gift Baskets

The city of Providence has had many nicknames. Once nicknamed the "Beehive of Industry," Providence started referring to itself as the "Creative Capital" in 2009 due to its budding education and arts sector. When considering what to ship in a gift basket delivered to Providence, you can always get “creative” with the town’s former and current nicknames. Choose our bee-themed cookies and fudge-centered cake pops for a festive treat.

Or, consider that the state of Rhode Island is nicknamed “The Ocean State,” after its several large bays and inlets that amount to about 14% of its total area. The state's license plate images are of ocean waves or sailboats, and spending a day boating around the bay is a popular Providence pastime. Whether your friends or loved ones are Providence locals or simply vacationing there for the summer, send them a Providence gift basket full of sail-worthy snacks. Our summer snack and cheese board features roasted almonds, root beer, salami, cheese spread, and water crackers — sure to delight everyone onboard!

Speaking of water, much of Providence’s local cuisine is inspired by the city’s coastal location and readily available fresh seafood. Rhode Island is famous for its “snail salad,” which is traditionally prepared family style with roughly five pounds of snails and other ingredients. Additional local favorites are shellfish and quahog clam chowder. Quahog clams are often baked in their shells to form what are called “stuffies.” Steamed clams and calamari are other favorites. Rhode Island’s “clam cake” (or “clam fritter”) is a deep- fried ball of buttery dough with chopped bits of clam inside.

The quintessential Rhode Island summertime meal is chowder and clam cakes. And nothing goes better with fresh seafood than sweet white wine and succulent dried fruit. Our Providence gift basket delivery service features a harvest delight gift set that includes a bottle of Parducci, white wine with the crisp flavors of citrus and melon. Imagine sipping a glass of sparkling wine while admiring the glistening bay waters from an elegant restaurant or cozy New England home. Included in the gift set are Turkish apricots, trail mix, pistachios and mixed fruit with ruby red plums. Your loved ones can gather together and savor these snacks while watching the sunset over the ocean.

For dessert, Providence prides itself on its traditional favorites. “Johnnie cakes,” which date back to colonial times, are made with corn meal and water and resemble fried pancakes. Rhode Islanders also enjoy “dough boys,” which are disks of deep fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar (or pizza sauce). The traditional “zeppole” Italian pastries (which often have vanilla pudding or ricotta cream centers) are consumed on Saint Joseph’s Day.

And last, but perhaps most significantly, is the prevalence of Providence doughnuts. In fact, Rhode Island features both the highest number and highest density of coffee and doughnut shops per capita in the country, with almost 350 shops in the state. Dunkin Donuts alone used to have more than 225 Providence locations! If you’re searching for a perfect Providence birthday gift basket, look no further than our deluxe donuts and donut holes. Many Providence locals would prefer these soft-textured and sweet-tasting delights to a basic birthday cake any day!
