Top 20 Best Coffee Gift Baskets for Christmas 2016

coffee gift basket, christmas coffee gifts, gifts for coffee drinkers

When choosing Christmas gifts, sometimes the only thing you have to go on is one little piece of information about the person for whom you’re buying. Maybe you know that they’re really into cars or that they play music. Sometimes that one thing you know about them has to be good enough.

One thing you might know about a great many people is that they drink coffee. Lots of people do, and since it’s something that they tend to do often (read: literally everyday), it makes a good gift. It’s both thoughtful and practical — even coffee the recipient doesn’t prefer makes excellent back-up or emergency coffee in a pinch.

To that end, coffee gift baskets may just be the ticket. As it is, gift baskets elevate the average standalone gift by including a lovely presentation and any number of related accessories. Crucially, they are also convenient for time-pressed shoppers. It can be difficult some years to thoughfully assemble a gift for everyone on your list, so consider gift baskets to make your life easy.

Don’t forget that you can always put your own personal touch on a gift basket by adding a specially-chosen item or two to it. For a coffee gift basket, you might include a Hario Mini Coffee Mill, or a way to brew, like an Aerobie Aeropress or a Chemex. Or, perhaps, include a bottle of maple syrup, which is my favorite coffee sweetener.

For the coffee drinker on your list, we’ve put together a list of the top 20 best coffee gift baskets to give as Christmas gifts.


1. California Delicious Five Pound Gift Basket

A theme you will soon find in the coffee gift baskets available is the extensive use of Starbucks as the main attraction, especially in baskets by California Delicious. This large basket is no exception. Included in this oversized basket are three different coffee blends: House, Breakfast Blend, and French Roast. You also get several packets of salted caramel hot cocoa and a box of caramel Via instant coffee, as well as four pieces of spiced chocolate biscotti, a TCHO organic chocolate bar, and a pair of Starbucks mugs. This would be a good option to buy for the office.

Angels’ Cup is an online tasting club, based in Brooklyn. The idea is that you receive four different coffees and blindly taste them, trying to see if you can identify the coffee.

There’s a companion app you can download to record your tasting notes, and every box comes with a cheat sheet. Each week, they ship four new featured coffees to Amazon, so once the person you buy this for is hooked on the experience, they can buy future boxes to keep up with the fun. Each box contains four 2.75 ounce samples that arrive at Amazon’s warehouse within days of being roasted.

coffee gift basket, christmas coffee gifts, gifts for coffee drinkers

(Bantai Civet Coffee)

The second of the legendary coffees of the world is kopi luwak, or civet coffee, and it has a pretty strange method of coming to be a consumable beverage. The cherries of the coffee tree must be eaten by the Asian palm civet, whereupon fermentation of the beans occurs in the digestive tract. The voided beans are then collected, washed, and roasted as normal coffee, which results in a particular flavor profile some people swear by. This particular gift set features one pound of Philippine, canopy shade grown robusta beans in four hermetically sealed bags, which come in a jute gift tote bag. If you want to give a gift that’s a cut above, try this.
