Do you love someone who loves coffee so much that they might just put it above you? Don’t take it too personally, but rather show them that you can speak their love language with a thoughtfully crafted coffee gift basket! Gourmet coffee gift baskets are also an amazing idea for the holiday season!
How to Build a Better Basket
A great gift basket comes from the heart, so building the perfect coffee-inspired gift is all about sharing a few of your personal cafe favorites with style. Some basics will make your heartfelt gift shine brighter. Follow these tips to help you assemble the best coffee basket around!
- Start with the Basket – Building a better basket begins with the basket itself! Choose a real wicker or woven basket, or go less traditional with a rustic metal basket or useful kitchen storage bin.
- Choose a Theme – Theming can make shopping so simple! Whether your basket motif is coffee-infused foods or home bar essentials, having a general theme can help you whittle down the choices to make one really nice gift.
- Have Fun – A great gift is about sharing, so try to enjoy the process! Consider ordering doubles of some items so you can try the basket offerings yourself or include a few tried and true coffee favorites. That way you’re sharing a little of yourself with your truly special gift.
