Consumable gifts convey all the traditional goodwill of classic giftature while also sprinkling in the extra-special touch that only sweet chocolate or cheek-pinching grandmothers can provide. Make a wish come true and tasty with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh-fruit bouquets and chocolate-dipped fruit at Edible Arrangements. Choose one of the following locations: Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, Portsmouth Boulevard or Sams Drive in Chesapeake, and West 21st Street or Granby Street in Norfolk.
Edible Arrangements offers up more than 50 fresh, artful fruit baskets that combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy edibility of fruit. The sweetery's designers stud the Delicious Daisy, a bouquet of sliced honeydew, pineapple, and cantaloupe, with strawberries and strings of grapes ($35) that double as a 25th-anniversary gift for a Smucker's jam heiress. Decadent, gluten-free layers of white and semisweet chocolate coat fruit in a 12-piece box of hand-dipped strawberries and bananas ($25). Customers can also put today's Groupon toward a larger centerpiece, such as the Melon Delight, a decorative spray of watermelon wedges, pineapple daisies, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, and double-dipped bananas sprouting from a watering can ($76). The preservative-free treats are all handcrafted at the apex of freshness, readying hand-dipped dainties to be hand-shoved into eagerly awaiting mouths.
