The ultimate Caribou Coffee gift guide


‘Tis the season to shop — and sip! The holidays are here and it’s time to make a list, check it twice and show your friends and family some love with thoughtful, useful gifts they’ll love.

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 wish list. 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. 

For your sister, your babysitter or your BFF: Drinkware

Take the cheer to go with tumblers and mugs all dressed up in their festive finest. We especially love the flask mugs for a little pour of holiday spirits, or the 30 or 40 oz Hydration Tumbler to keep you hydrated for all that shopping, baking and decorating. Pro tip: Tuck a gift card inside the cup so their first fill-up is on you. 

For the coffee lover: Gift sets

Your pal can’t live without their daily Caribou Coffee fix. They’ve got the app locked and loaded with their favorite drinks and locations and always have an iced coffee or latte in hand, no matter the weather. Why not give them what they really want: coffee? Our adorable gift sets are curated bundles filled with Caribou Coffee® mugs, merch and more. Oh, and there’s really nothing cuter than a mini-sized Caribou ornament hanging on the tree. 

For the busy bee: A coffee subscription

Easy does it! Keep the coffee coming with a gifted subscription for their favorite beans so they don’t have to stress when they’re running low. They’ll think of you each time they unbox and brew these flavorful hand-roasted beans and K-Cups® Pods. 

For anyone and everyone: Coffee

Our hand-roasted coffee beans are the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Know their roast preference? Great! You name it, we’ve got it; Dad’s dark roast and Aunt Lisa’s light roast are ready to find a spot under the tree. Not so sure what they like best? The classic Caribou Blend always satisfies a coffee craving; it’s a herd-pleaser for a reason.

For Secret Santa, the mail carrier, your favorite yoga teacher and more: Gift cards

Make like Santa and fill those stockings with care — and gift cards. Everyone loves great coffee, delicious bakery items and savory sandwiches. Grab a few gift cards on your next coffee run to have on hand for last-minute gifting needs, like when your neighbor shovels your sidewalk or your brother brings his brand-new girlfriend to family dinner.  Have a few faraway friends on your list this year?
