…coffee, coffee, and more coffee! Now I would certainly stick with this true love if he gave me coffee for all the 12 days of Christmas – who wouldn’t? Looking at things from another perspective, YOU could give the gift of coffee this Christmas and capture the heart of that special someone. Or if you think romance is full of hot air anyway, give coffee anyway and have people in your debt forever. 😉
Seriously, though, I am thinking of giving away coffee beans this Christmas. I will just have to order a huge amount of beans from my regular supplier and then buy some nice containers and wrap them up. Perfect gift, yes?
If you do not have the time to do all that – packing and wrapping can take some time – then here is another good idea for you. How about taking a look at Theme-Gifts.com? I just found a Christmas basket dubbed “The Twelve Days of Coffee Christmas Gift Basket Whole Bean Selection.” They got me at the name, really. Who would be able to resist such a gift basket?
The site describes the basket as:
Celebrate Christmas with 12 glorious days of the finest coffees from around the world and seasonal flavors perfect for the holidays. Inside an attractive woven wood basket we have included twelve 2 oz bags of our fresh roasted whole bean gourmet coffees. The collection includes popular specialty and estate coffees from the finest growing regions of the world, specially selected by our discerning roasters based on seasonal availability. All coffees are fresh roasted from fine Arabica beans and packed in our one way valve bags to ensure optimal freshness (a rarity for 2 oz bags, but necessary for bagging fresh coffee).
More than the coffee, though, they are also throwing in special treats such as wafer cookies and chocolate covered beans. For $59.95, this is one heck of a Christmas gift.!
