Attention gift givers! With peppermint lattes and cooler weather on the horizon, it’s time to finalize your holiday shopping plans. Whether you’re putting together a care package for a friend, sourcing presents for family members, or having a treat-yourself moment, we’ve made a list of our favorite options for spreading cheer this holiday season.
BREWING AT HOME
Is there a coffee lover in your family? (There must be, or you probably wouldn’t be reading this!) Give the gift of tasty coffee brewed at home with a classic brewing device or some single origin beans from a few of our favorite producing partners.
This classic glass brewer gives you a clean, complex cup of coffee. As an all-in-one pour over and decanter, coffee enthusiasts can brew a tasty batch of hot or iced coffee and serve directly from the vessel. With its timeless design, we’re confident it will look great on your counter too.
Nicaragua Duo Box
Coffee nerds will love tasting the duo coffees side by side and getting a sense of the diverse tasting experiences one can enjoy with coffees from Nicaragua.
Bonus: They’ll also get to reuse the cute and colorful box!
Cooler weather means frosty mornings, brisk hikes, and poetic landscapes. Whether you’re planning a picnic on the porch or a multi-day backpacking journey, this gear packs light and will help you keep the caffeinated (or non-caffeinated, we won’t judge) drinks coming.
Stainless Steel Straws
Single-use, non-biodegradable plastic straws hit our landfills and oceans by the millions each year. Do your part by going reusable. Each pouch comes with two stainless steel straws and makes a great gift for coworkers, teammates, or neighbors.
When it comes to sipping on the go, you need a trusty, temperature stable mug. This Miir Tumbler keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. The vacuum-sealed, stainless steel construction means you get a great looking vessel without having to worry about breakage.
The AeroPress® Coffee Maker
The AeroPress® Coffee Maker has a loyal following for a reason. Lightweight and durable, this brewer allows users to prepare a delicious cup in two minutes or less and clean up even faster! Add a lot of coffee and a little water for an espresso-style beverage, or brew a full mug for a more mellow sipping experience.
This brewer comes with a pack of 350 filters, a scoop, stirrer, and nylon tote bag for travel.
Hanging out with your COVID-safe pod this holiday season? Prove that you’re everyone’s favorite guest by bringing some sweet treats and coffee to share. All house-made treats are available at our cafes in Durham and Chapel Hill and can be ordered here.
This cranberry raspberry jam makes a great addition to appetizer plates or alongside fresh biscuits or scones. Or use it to make a very elevated peanut butter and jelly sandwich (joking but also definitely not joking).
Cookies and Loaves
Surviving the holiday hustle and bustle requires scheduled self-care. That includes taking breaks to go outside, move your body, read a book… or eat cookies.
We have a variety of goodies from the Joe Van Gogh Kitchen – shortbread, drop cookies, and mini pumpkin loaves. And for those of you who can’t pass up a classic tin of holiday snacks, check out the Finger Licking Dutch Stroopwafels. All are guaranteed to go great with hot drinks.
Flavored latte lovers rejoice! You can now bring some of our ginger molasses, vanilla, or vanilla mint syrup home with you. Add some to your coffee, tea, chocolate, or adult beverage for a special treat.
Did you really think we would forget the coffee?
Whatever you’re celebrating this season, show friends and neighbors that you’re thinking of them with these small tokens of appreciation.
Fool’s Gold Espresso Honey
Produced in Lewisville, NC, Fool’s Gold Espresso Honey blends ethically sourced espresso beans with Southern Wildflower Honey. It will add sweetness to your hot beverages, nuance to your baked goods, and flair to your cheese plates.
6oz Holiday Blend Coffee Bags
Good things come in small packages. We’re offering our Home for the Holidays Blend in stocking-sized 6oz. bags during the holiday season. With notes of chocolate, spices, and berries, this coffee will go well with all your favorite holiday eats.

Who doesn’t love butterflies and bees!? These wildflower seeds are sure to create a refuge for local pollinators in your yard. Each packet contains enough seeds to cover thirty square feet with sun-loving plants.
