Coffee Lovers Gift Basket Guide

When it comes to putting together little presents and coffee for gift baskets, we can look for almost any reason to give it as a gift. This is why I put together some of the best coffee gift baskets that will surely work for almost any occasion.

If you’ve never made a coffee lovers gift basket before, let’s start at the beginning.

How do you make a gifted coffee basket?

To make a gifted coffee basket, start by picking out the coffee and keep these three things in mind when choosing. First, think about whether the recipient drinks caffeinated coffee or decaf. Then, do a little digging to see if they like ground coffee, or would they prefer to grind the beans themselves. Next, consider the type of roast that the person might like. Once you have those three bases covered, select a coffee.

I looked all over Amazon to find great bags of coffee at a good value. Here are caffeinated and decaffeinated ground coffees along and whole bean coffees with a variety of roasts. I even hunted down all of the above for the person on your list that loves Starbucks coffee.

What do you put in a coffee lovers gift basket?

Though you can readily assemble random gifts, I recommend selecting items that go together in some way. Thoughtfully assemble something simple such as other drinks they might like or gifts focused on relaxation. This leads us to our first step below.

First, choose a theme.

After selecting the coffee, decide what direction to go in with the other items. For instance, there are gourmet coffee gift baskets, specialty coffee gift baskets, coffee and chocolate gift baskets, etc. Use your imagination. The sky’s the limit.

Then decide what items to put in a coffee gift basket along with the coffee.

I highlight a coffee-themed basket, a farmhouse-themed one and one that focuses on Starbucks lovers.

If you’re wondering what to get someone who loves Starbucks, many of the best gifts for coffee lovers are on Amazon.

My teenage daughter is a college student, so getting her something like this serves as a great coffee break gift basket in between classes. Luckily, I found a cup you can personalize for her upcoming birthday. I pulled together some of my other favorites items to put in a coffee gift basket here.

Farmhouse Themed Gift Basket

The farmhouse theme is very popular. Consider getting some nice hand towels, a table top plague, canisters and other items to put inside the coffee gift basket

Items Under $10

Then you add in other items that you know the recipient will enjoy.

Think about the types of hobbies or interests they have. If the person likes to travel or is outdoorsy, maybe add in some of these top gifts under $30.

Or, combine the items with some of these gift of time ideas. This allows the person to have an experience gift along with some physical gifts. If you’re still not sure, I highlight 5 coffee gift baskets here, but don’t overthink it.

Get a basket to put all of the items in.

Most stores such as Michael’s or other craft shops will carry baskets. Check dollar stores like Dollar Tree too. You might be able to get a decent one for less there. Dollar Tree also has all types of containers in a vast array of vibrant colors.

Once the basket is full, attach a bow or ribbon with a card on top and your good to go.
