    Coffee Gift Basket - more ideas, please! 11th Oct 07 at 10:57 AM
    Hello everyone - I'm a long time lurker who's really enjoying reading this site and am bowled over by how many excellent and creative ideas you all seem to come up with!

    Inspired by all the wonderful hamper threads, I've decided to put together a coffee themed gift basket for my hard-to-please-and-often-a-bit-grumpy father in law - he's notoriously difficult to buy for, bless, but he *does* like trying new types of coffee. He's gone through various phases - in the past we've bought him filter coffee makers, electric grinders, those plunger style glass coffee makers, and last Christmas my husband and I bought him the Senseo pod as he'd been eyeing one up longingly. I think he used it for about a week before he got bored with it!

    So anyway .... it's a safe bet that he'll like anything coffee-related. I bought a lovely brown leather high-sided tray (10 in Tesco last weekend!) and thought I'd fill it with a variety of small packs of different coffees (Whittards, maybe??), and perhaps add some home made coffee fudge or coffee/walnut biscuits wrapped in cellophane bags. Has anyone got any other good ideas for what else to add?

    You can be sure that my FIL didn't appreciate it though, or bother to say thank you. He's always been a very grumpy man
