Christmas is right around the corner and when I start to think about gifts to get for people I try to think about things that they love. There’s nothing worse than getting a gift that you just won’t use.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that probably 75% of the people I need to buy gifts for love coffee. Maybe it’s more, I mean who doesn’t love coffee?
What I love to do for the coffee lovers in my life is make gift baskets full of delicious coffee,mugs, travel mugs, coffee truffles, coffee mug candles or anything that I can find that’s coffee related. It’s always a huge hit!
For this Coffee Lovers Gift Basket, we partnered with Community Coffee and included three bags of their Private Reserve Coffee along with two travel mugs, a cute pot holder and even a DIY Candle in a Coffee Mug that we made ourselves!
It’s the perfect Holiday gift to give not just because the basket is super cute but because the coffee is amazing. I had the chance to taste it myself and had the perfect morning cup of coffee! It’s delicious!
If you’ve never made DIY Candles before, it’s really easy. I wanted to share the steps with you so you can add these to your gift baskets this year too!
Things you will need:
Candle wax flakes, you will need enough flakes to fill your mug up TWICE.
Pencils or Straw
Wrap the end of your candle wick around your straw and place in the mug (see photo). Place the Candle wax in a glass bowl and melt on high in the microwave until it’s a liquid consistency. Pour into the coffee mug and let harden. This takes about two hours. Enjoy burning your candle!
These make a great gift on their own or in a gift basket! I like to find old mugs or tea cups at my local thrift shop to make these in!
