Holiday Cheer, Caffeine & a Peet's Holiday Giveaway #PeetsCoffee

*We have a winner!*

You know I love coffee. LOVE! Imagine my excitement when this Peet's Holiday Blend arrived in the mail. I like Peet's coffee but especially the holiday blend. I find it bold and smooth enough for my first cup of the day but also flavorful enough to use as an iced coffee later. I was also excited because I am including the coffee in a gift basket I am making.


As you know we live in graduate student housing here at Cornell. The kids and I spend a lot of time across the street at the community center for the housing facility where we live. It is where we do the laundry, attend play group and children's activities, and grab our mail and packages. The woman who works at the front desk is retiring after twenty-five years and I thought a gift basket showcasing Peet's Holiday Blend would make the perfect gift for her.


I am usually an enthusiastic gift giver around the holidays but this year we are on a student budget so I have to be careful not to overspend. It is easy to break the budget when shopping for cute holiday items. Once I decided upon the coffee as the centerpiece of the gift all that was left was shopping for some java friendly accessories.




I know this gift is going to be a hit. Check out my Google + story for more information on my gift basket shopping trip.

Here is the best part: Peet's coffee is going to send one of you a fantastic gift set worth $75. Leave a comment below to gain an entry.
