Back in 2020, amid the most locked-down of locked-down-months, a package arrived at my house. My family had sent a pie from a local bakery where they live on the East Coast all the way to my house in Los Angeles using the online food-shipping platform Goldbelly. I wasn’t that familiar with the site before hand, but that parcel was a fun little virtual ‘hug’ from afar that was perfect for the moment – and being able to ship special and regional foods to online shoppers turned out to be a boon to restaurants struggling amid the pandemic downturn, too.

This week, Goldbelly announced a big collaboration with celebrity chef and internet sweetheart Ina Garten, offering a way to ship sweet treats from the Barefoot Contessa’s kitchens to your loved ones. That got me thinking: What are the best plant-based offerings on Goldbelly? A few clicks later, it turned out there are a lot of tasty options, from cookies and sweets to entire holiday dinner packages. Below, find my picks for food gifts to send (or receive!) this holiday season.
