Introduction:I wanted to put together a coffee gift basket but wanted to add more the average dollar store items you may find in coffee gift baskets at a warehouse store. Here are a few things I did to spice up the regular
Get away from Folgers, (well unless that's all they will drink)buy some special gourmet coffee for your coffee basket. Think flavored or special roasted. Pay special attention to the packaging to make sure the coffee will stay fresh until you give your gift.
If you got whole beans a coffee grinder would be a great compliment to your coffee gift basket. A coffee grinder can be picked up cheap and found in many styles. If you know what color your gift receiver's kitchen is you can coordinate colors. I bought a white coffee grounder for a friend who had a cow themed kitchen and painted cow spots on it. She loved it and ten years later she still has it in her kitchen and uses it every day.
Coffee can have many flavors. It is easy to make a cup of coffee special with a little added flavor, like Amaretto, blueberry or chocolate raspberry.
You can personalize the coffee cup by buying painting a picture on a plain coffee mug or you get a photo added to a coffee cup. On of my grandmas favorite things is her coffee cup with a picture of her grand kids on it. You can also buy a mug with a theme that you know the receiver likes, like cows for a cow collector, dogs for a dog lover or a teacher's mug for a teacher.
A homemade pamphlet of favorite coffee flavored recipes is a great and cheap way to add flair to a coffee gift basket. If your short on time or ideas to make a coffee recipe book you can always buy one. I once received a cookbook of recipes of dishes you can add coffee too, not just desserts or regular coffee tasting side dishes.
There are many ways to add flair to a coffee gift basket. What idea do you have to make a coffee gift basket extra special?
