Holiday Coffee Blend, and Easy DIY Gift
Dress your homemade coffee blend in a pretty bow with a spoon for a hostess gift!

I like to think of myself as pretty crafty. I enjoy making gifts for family, friends and neighbors during the holidays. There is nothing I like better, though, than a quick-to-come-together gift that everyone loves.

My friend, Karen, is a star at the holidays, because she puts together a coffee blend that everyone looks forward to. Holiday Spice Coffee is a great gift to have on hand, because it takes only minutes to stir up. Put it in some coffee bags, tie it with a big bow, and attach a tablespoon, and you have a gift that will thrill every coffee drinker r on your list!

You probably will want to keep a bag for yourself, too!

Holiday Spice Coffee

These are the proportions for a pot of coffee   Make as much as you want to gift, but keep these proportions.


  • 10 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick (Ground cinnamon will clog your pot.)

  1. Mix all ingredients together, and bag up in a sealed coffee bag.
Happy Cooking!
