Our holiday shopping lists can often grow long pretty quick. In addition to people in your immediate family, there are friends, maybe a co-worker or two, the neighbors, your child’s teachers, service workers… the list goes on. Unfortunately, your budget may not be able to extend the length that your caring heart does.
Holiday Gifts in a Mug
The good news is there IS a way to give as many people on your list a gift! You simply have to budget well, and give small gifts with big meaning —or flavor in this case! Starbucks® and Lindt have partnered with Target to bring a handful of perfect pairings to us for the holidays! After all, coffee and chocolate were simply meant to be! Take a look at how simple putting together a DIY gift can be with just a few supplies.
Want to create a gift with classic flair? Purchase Starbucks Holiday Blend Packaged Coffee (or K-Cups) and Lindt LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles for the first perfect pairing. Starbucks Holiday Blend has been an annual coffee tradition since 1985 and is made rare, aged Sumatran beans. Paired with the smooth, creamy taste of milk chocolate, it’s sure to entice the taste buds of all your friends!
All about the peppermint! Bring the delicious taste of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte to your friends in a K-Cup! Paired with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles, there is sure to be a lot of peppermint to enjoy! The creaminess of real cocoa intertwined with the irresistible pizzazz of peppermint are perfectly paired to bring home a holiday favorite for your recipient.
Pep to Go
Have a friend always on-the-go? VIA Peppermint Mocha single-serve packets are excellently designed so you can enjoy them anytime, anywhere—in an instant. Pair VIA Peppermint Mocha with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles for a burst of fresh flavor! The crisp and minty taste of the VIA Peppermint Mocha brings the smooth peppermint ruffle filling out of the Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles for a rich and creamy mint-filled treat! Add a few packets of the coffee into a mug and top with a handful of White Chocolate Truffles for another easy gift idea.
Even if you have a friend that doesn’t drink coffee, we have you covered! Tazo Chai Classic Latte is an incredibly rich blend of black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and vanilla. Perfectly paired with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles, tea time take on a whole new meaning.
An affordable coffee mug, gift tags, candy canes, and the perfect pairings above make for the easiest of holiday gift ideas! Plus, to stay on budget, Target has in-store offers to help you save on both Starbucks and Lindt through the holidays:
