One of the biggest challenges I face during the holidays is finding the perfect gift for the people that I do not know well. Its easy to find the perfect gift for my girlfriends, family members or coworkers. When it comes to people like the mail carrier, the gardener, my car wash man and my children's pediatrician, it can be challenging to find the perfect gift.
Since I have such a passion for coffee, I decided to make coffee gift baskets as gifts. I wanted to do something that I knew most people would love, and be able to use during the holiday season. Peet's Coffee is my favorite coffee to drink and to serve at the holidays. I even made a coffee-bean turkey this year and stuffed it full of Peet's dark roast coffee, while serving the new Peet's holiday blend for my guests to indulge.
I went to the local Peet's coffee, and they had the best selection of items to create the perfect gift baskets. I got the new Peet's holiday blend coffee, tea, treats and coffee mugs. I was even able to enjoy a sampling of the delicious holiday blend.
Andrew is a tremendous tea lover, and he ordered a Peet's holiday blend tea while I was shopping. After he finished the tea he said, "It tastes just like Christmas."
I cannot wait to put the gift baskets together and surprise everyone with them. All I need to do now is think of a creative way to package them, making the gifts extra special.
