Admittedly, the appropriateness of coffee presents in general varies in accordance with the recipient. What a perfect coffee gift is for one person might not be the same for the next, which we understand and acknowledge.
However, when it comes to giving the kinds of coffee gifts that simply cannot go wrong, coffee gift baskets take some beating. The reason being that when you give coffee gift baskets, you technically give a whole bunch of coffee presents bundled into one presentable parcel.
Which, when you think about it, is just about as good as it gets for the discerning coffee connoisseur.
With this in mind, here’s a brief rundown of just a few of the things we believe all good coffee gift baskets should contain:
Most obviously of all, the greatest coffee gift is often the gift of seriously premium and exclusive coffee. Opt for a pack or two of small-batch artisan beans - something they’re unlikely to have tried before and that’s available in short supply. The more premium, sophisticated and exclusive the beans, the better - trust us on that one!
Some say nothing can ruin a good cup of coffee quite like additional syrups, flavorings and added extras. By contrast, others believe the exact opposite. In any case, it’s always worth adding one or two natural syrups or flavorings to your coffee gift basket. All the better if you already know the tastes and preferences of the recipient.
Speaking of which, egift cards are a 100% bulletproof option, if you’re not entirely sure what the recipient is into. Alongside a few bits and pieces you know they’ll appreciate, you could also include an egift card for them to pick up something special with. Our egift cards are available in a wide variety of denominations and can be redeemed against anything in the Hayman Coffee catalogue. All without having to leave the comfort of home.
No coffee gift basket is complete without something edible to enjoy alongside the coffee you include. The sky really is the limit in this instance, but there’s no need to over-complicate things. Simply include some biscuits, some chocolates or anything else you know the recipient is into.
It’s also worth including something for them to drink their new favorite coffee out of, and be reminded of the generous giver at the same time. Splash out on an elegant and sophisticated coffee mug - an essential component of all good coffee gift baskets.
Last but not least, don’t get so caught up in the process of picking the perfect coffee gifts that you forget to include a meaningful personalised greeting. Whether it’s a case of having your greeting/message included in the package by the seller or picking up a separate card, this is where much of the sentiment of the whole thing lies.
