Gift Ideas: DIY Tea Gift Box and Coffee Box Sets

When it comes to office gifts I love doing more personal touches such as DIY gift. Not only is it more personal to do a DIY gift but cost effective too. These past couple of years I did little gift sets for my co-workers; a Hot Chocolate Mason Jar Kit (see here) and S'more Kit (see here). This year I decided to put together some tea and coffee gift box sets. This was super fun to do and easy to get all the supplies

Tea Gift Box Set:

What You'll Need
- Christmas gift box (from Lot For Less can also find in Target. find here)
- Tea Mug (from Lot For Less, Target has really cheap and cute ones. Find here)
- Mix box of teas (bought two boxes of Twinnings mix boxes 20ct)
- Cookies or Biscottis 
- Paper shreds (bought at Paper Source find shredded paper)
- Saran Wrap
- Seasonal Twine (bought at Paper Source find here)
- Christmas Tags (bought at Paper Source find here)

Step 1. Fill bottom of the box with paper shreds.
Step 2. Arrange your mug and teas into box.
Step 3. Wrap your cookies and biscottis in saran wrap to keep them fresh. I had did two of each kind of cookies. 
Step 4. Place cookies into box.
Step 5. Close the lip. Instead of using the twin to go all the way over the box twice I made it long enough to go over the box once and then over the top to tie the Christmas tag in place. Then I was able to tape the twine to the bottom of the box.

This the perfect little gift to give someone that you know is a tea drinker. You can personalize it with candy that you know they like or even a funny little mug that they will appreciate. You can even do loose teas and put in a tea infuser. Since I was making multiple ones of these I found it easier to just keep it simple.

Know a coffee drinker? This is perfect for the caffeine addicted. If you know they use K-Cups buy a variety pack or if you know their favorite coffee buy them a bag of that. You can even add in a french press or a giftcard to Starbucks (or any other coffee shop that they like). 

Are you doing any DIY Christmas gifts this year?
