The holidays are officially here and I’ve already started putting together holiday gift guides for friends and family. With the boyfriend moving to San Francisco earlier this year, it was a rough year but also a year that I’ve connected with people who are now my close friends and, even met my neighbors. Embarrassing right? Working for myself for the past two years has meant a lot of time working alone, head down, and just work, work, and work. Thankfully, the year has slowed down and I’ve been conscious of making more time for friends and more importantly, myself.
This year, the holidays mean a lot to me and putting together gifts has been very special. I’ve partnered up with Starbucks® and Lindt Chocolate to share some festive holiday gift pairings! ‘Tis the season for holiday gifting!
Start your morning with the TAZO Chai Classic Latte & Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles.
The TAZO Chai Classic Latte concentrate is a rich blend of black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and vanilla, which makes it super cozy for the winter season. It’s super easy – just add milk or your favorite milk substitute! I like to heat mine over the stove and whisk in milk to create a frothy tea latte. Your home will be filled with the smell of cinnamon, ginger, and cardamon!
Who says you can’t have dessert first? I believe in starting the morning off on a sweet note with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles. They’re only available during the holiday season so I always stock up on a couple of extra bags. Pick up 2 for $8 at Target stores from November 27 to December 24!
Holiday mugs with Starbucks® VIA Peppermint Mocha & Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles.
I love that Target releases new mugs every season and the winter mugs are adorable! My favorites are the snowman mug, sweater mug, let it snow mug, and warm and cozy mugs. They’re all under $6 at Target.
You can easily put together a holiday gift with a winter mug, Starbucks® VIA Peppermint Mocha (comes with 5 packets per box), Lindt LINDOR Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles, and old-fashioned peppermint candy cane. The perfect gift for neighbors, friends and family. I have a couple of these set aside for those last minute holiday party invitations and unexpected gifts.
Holiday crates with Lindt LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles & Starbucks® Holiday Blend.
I found these beer crates at Target to create a festive holiday crate gift with Starbucks® Holiday Blend Packaged Coffee, Lindt LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles, and homemade gingerbread cookies. The Starbucks® Holiday Blend is 100% Arabica coffee with aged Sumatran beans that make it smooth and balanced with sweet maple notes. Paired with the Lindt LINDOR Christmas Milk Chocolate Truffles that melt in your mouth, who wouldn’t love to receive this during the holidays?!
Baking gingerbread cookies is something I do every year around the holidays and wanted to add a personal touch by including them in the holiday crate. Plus, freshly baked cookies always make the house smell really good.
From November 27 – December 31, Target has the following in-store deals:
- Buy 3 different Starbucks® products (VIA: $4.30 each, Roast and Ground Coffee: $5.99 11 or 12oz) and save $6.
- $9.99 for 20oz K-CUP
- $9.99 9 and 16-ct Starbucks and Tazo
