I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for McCafé packaged coffee. I received product samples as well as a monetary promotional incentive to thank me for my participation.

I love this time of year! Not only do I enjoy the holiday decorations and music, but I also enjoy shopping for, putting together, and giving gifts to those I care about. I don’t know about you, but I love both giving and receiving gift baskets! One such gift is a Holiday Coffee Gift Basket, complete with McCafé packaged coffee!

How to Create a Holiday Coffee Gift Basket

1 – Choose a basket. You can choose a gift bag, a gift basket or holiday-themed container to hold your goodies in.

2 – Choose a food to pair with coffee. When I drink coffee, I love to pair it with shortbread cookies. I included a box of my favorite shortbread cookies in the gift basket.

3 – Include holiday candy. In my mind, no holiday gift basket is complete without some holiday candy. I included candy canes and chocolate Santas.

4 – Choose a variety of coffees. In my gift basket, I included both the packaged coffee and the K-Cups with different flavors of the McCafé packaged coffee.
