Sometimes you just want to think outside of the standard flower delivery and gift someone you love something truly sweet and decadent. After all, the perfect gift is both practical, Instagrammable and hopefully edible, right? Despite what you might think, it’s not impossible. These days you can get just about everything delivered, so if your giftee has a sweet tooth, you’ve come to the right place. In fact, the best places to buy desserts online are actually pretty affordable. Unlike flower deliveries, it won’t cost you a hundred dollars or more to give someone the gift of sugary confections.

You also don’t need to be celebrating a birthday to send these gifts. Many of the options below are customizable, so you can make really any occasion a holiday by sending them. If your long-distance friend, family member or partner recently got a new job, new apartment, or has a birthday coming up, of course those are all great reasons to send something. But if someone you know is going through something tough like a breakup, job loss or anything going on in their life, sending a sweet treat is a great way to let them know you’re thinking of them. I love sending gifts to friends when they least expect it, so deliveries don’t have to be limited to birthdays.

Below is our curated list of the best desserts online that actually deliver. And don’t worry, this list is so much more than cookies — did you know you can actually ship someone a whole pie? Happy shopping!
