Father's Day: Gifts for a Coffee Lover

Simeon and I have been travelling around Iceland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands over the past month; arriving back in South Africa just in time for my first semester university exams. We're slowly getting back into the routine of home again.

I thought I'd share the gift we put together for my Dad - a real liker of quality coffee and milk chocolate!

1 - Take an empty tissue box...

2 - Sim used a carpet knife to cut the top off...

3 - Insert a brown paper bag...

4 - Fold the edges of the paper bag down until it covers the box...

5 - Pick out some lovely flavoured chocolates...

6 - And some great quality coffee...

7 - Tie string around the gift box, attach a card & insert tissue paper into the box...

8 - Put the jars of coffee in first & arrange the chocolate around them...

9 - Happy Father's Day!

Cute, nice reuse of a tissue box

Travelling - that's awesome. Hope you had the best time.

And nice job on the present.

Sidebar - I'd love to try the almond slab. Sounds delish.

Iceland!? It's at the top of my wish list right now :) What a lovely trip! Too bad you had exams waiting for you when you got back. I missed this post before Father's Day but its worth bookmarking because this would be great for loads of gifts!
