Below we've assembled some awesome Valentine's Day coffee gift ideas that your loved one will be sure to thank you for.
This Valentine's Day, give the gift that keeps on giving with a coffee subscription. Have gourmet coffee sent to his or her home every month. The good thing about coffee subscriptions is that you can customize them to specific preferences, or just be pleasantly surprised each month. Either way, it's a Valentine's Day gift idea that's a sure-fire win. There are many high quality gourmet coffee subscriptions to choose from. We've had the pleasure of sampling some of them and have a few recommendations below:

Coffee Gift Baskets
Next on the list for Valentine's Day coffee gift ideas are coffee gift baskets. They say variety is the spice of life, and coffee gift baskets provide just that. The idea behind these coffee gifts is that you can give your loved one a wide assortment of coffee flavors to choose from. Whether your he or she prefers light, medium, or dark roast coffee, there's a coffee gift basket out there to meet the need. Coffee gift baskets usually come with accessories to make for an even more enjoyable social evening. From mugs to truffles, they come with everything you need to make your Valentine's Day a memorable one. If you haven't had the chance to try Door County Coffee, well-known for their exquisite gourmet coffee, we recommend their ultimate Door County Coffee Gift Basket. It comes with a whopping 31 different blends and two travel mugs.
Similar to the coffee gift basket, variety packs offer a mix of coffee blends and flavors that are sure to excite the taste buds of your coffee-drinking friend or lover. K cups® and single serve coffee pods are a widely popular coffee delivery form that is quick and convenient. You can find K Cup variety packs that are purely light, medium, or dark roast but I tend to favor the ones that combine all three. One excellent option is Maud's Coffee Variety Pack which contains 12 of their most popular blends. Maud's Coffee Pods are also 100% recyclable which is a huge plus.
