The ultimate Caribou Coffee gift guide


‘Tis the season to shop – and sip! The holidays are here and if you’re anything like us, you’re making a list and checking it twice, ready to show your friends and family some love with gifts they’ll adore. We may be biased, but nothing spreads wonder and joy like a great cup of coffee, made with care by a BOUrista or at home.  

All that shopping can be stressful, though, especially if you have hard-to-shop-for folks on your list this year. (Hello, dad?) We’ve compiled a handy gift guide packed with our go-to ideas for giving if you’re looking for holiday gift inspiration…or a few ideas for your own wishlist. We won’t tell if you keep some of these for yourself; coffee is the perfect present, after all. 


Gift it to: your favorite coworker, your carpool buddy, your friend that’s always on the go
