The holidays come with many familiar aromas and tastes. Cookies, a fresh Christmas tree and (in my house) a multitude of seasonal coffee smells.
Recently, Peet’s Coffee & Tea sent me two bags of their bold and flavorful Holiday Blend coffee. The minute I opened the box I could smell the roasted goodness. I must admit, I fired up my brewer before I even got the bags out of the box. The aroma filled the house and I knew it was time to share Peet’s with someone else. My husband, good sport that he is, was introduced to Peet’s in a surprise attack switch not long ago; this time I’m going to skip the shock and wrap up a tasty gift basket for a good friend of mine. She loves coffee and I think she’ll love Peet’s.
Holiday Blend is a limited edition seasonal flavor you can only find at Peet’s Coffee. It is complex and full bodied with hints of bittersweet chocolate, a floral aroma and a smooth, creamy finish. It goes great with the holidays or any season.
You can find a wide variety of Holiday Blend gifts from Peet’s – or, use a bag of fresh ground to create your own holiday spirit!
It was time to head out and gather some goodies to add to our gift basket, and I knew just where to go: our local Dollar Tree. You can get so many cute and tasty things there and all for $1. I wanted to create a basket for my friend that gave her a tasteful and aromatic escape while she sipped her Peet’s coffee. You can watch a slideshow of our shopping trip HERE.
I picked out what I thought my friend would enjoy most: chocolate, crunchy candy and I made sure to find just the right mug that would hold plenty of coffee and blend in with her kitchen decor.
An easy to use basket gift bag and matching red bow finishes off the gift – and it’s ready to go! I know she’ll dig into the Peet’s Holiday Blend first; she loves coffee as much as I do. I can’t wait to let her know how many other great flavors there are to choose from.
And one of my readers will get $75 to start their own tasting tour of Peet’s coffee!
