The Perfect Coffee Basket for College Back to School

by Lynn Lilly, Aug 26 2016

Summer is wrapping up and college is almost back in session. Before we know it, football will be kicking off and the leaves will be falling. As you pack up the college student in your life, send them packing with a gift that will keep on giving! I have been a long time Keurig® fan so I was thrilled to partner with them and share ideas for practical and creative gifts for college students. The Keurig® K250 Brewer is the perfect compact and sleek brewer that comes in bright colorful colors. The brewer design is slim, which is the perfect caffeinated solution for small dorm rooms. With the Keurig® K250 Brewer the possibilities are endless, from quality Green Mountain Coffee® blends to creative recipes, the college student in your life can enjoy delicious drinks from morning to night. Wrap the perfect gift together with customized colorful watercolor mugs, a handmade K-Cup® pod holder and a printable recipe card for a deliciously sweet Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream Coffee Jive brewed with Green Mountain Coffee® Dark Magic coffee. Dark Magic is an extra bold dark roast that contains more coffee than regular K-Cup® pods, which we’re sure students will love brewing before early morning classes or late night studying.

Watercolor Coffee Mugs are the perfect solution to prevent mug mix ups with roommates. You are not going to believe how simple these are...
  • Plain Coffee Mug
  • Nail Polish
  • Disposable Tupperware (it will get stained)
  • Toothpick or Wooden Skewer
  • Parchment Paper
  1. Fill disposable tupperware with cool water
  2. Pour a small amount of nail polish on top of the water slowly
  3. Use the toothpick to shift the nail polish and create a design. Do this quickly because the nail polish dries fast.
  4. Dip the mug into the water and lift straight up. Do not let nail polish get on the rim of the mug or inside the mug. 
  5. Place mug on the parchment paper for 1 hour to dry.

Now that you have the perfect mugs to gift make sure to include this free printable recipe card with a box of Green Mountain Coffee® K-Cup® pods. Want to make sure your college student never runs out of coffee?  Sign up for auto delivery and K-Cup® pods will be delivered to your college student every month! 

Finally keep your college student organized with this simple do it yourself K-Cup® holder. Using super glue attach both ends of a wooden candle stick to a cake pan. Let the project set for 2-3 hours and then fill it with a variety of Green Mountain Coffee®.

Wrap the essentials up in a cute and simple gift basket that is easy transport!
