Every year I get together with my girlfriends and we do an ornament gift exchange. It’s the perfect time to sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company.

This year I opted to host and had the girls over for a delicious cup of coffee and some berry scones and biscotti. I also had a surprise for them…

Thanks to Keurig I would also be able to gift a brand new Keurig 2.0 to one lucky friend. How awesome is that? Plus, I put together some cute mug gifts for each friend to take home.

Coffee Gift Ideas with Keurig 2.0 and K-Cup packs

The new Keurig 2.0 features Keurig 2.0 Brewing Technology™, which reads each lid to deliver a perfect beverage every time. See – what did I tell you? Perfection!

Not only will they be able to enjoy the perfect cup of coffee every morning but with the new K-carafe packs they can also entertain guests and brew a 4-cup pot of coffee to share!

And when one has coffee to share, you need something to pair it with. I whipped up some of my favorite berry scones and grabbed a few boxes of biscotti from the store to serve alongside our delicious coffee choices.

Berry Scones Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 4
 

This recipe makes about 12-15 mini scones or 6 large scones.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 6 tablespoons regular butter
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup 1% milk

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and pulse 2-3 times to mix. Add the butter and pulse 7-8 times just until the mixture forms large, coarse crumbs the size of peas. Scatter the cranberries into the dough and pulse until just moist.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured countertop or work space and press it together gently until the dough forms a ball. Using a spoon, grab a heaping scoop of dough and drop onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing scones about 1 inch apart.
  4. Bake until golden brown, 13-17 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly and serve warm.

 

Coffee Gift Ideas with Keurig 2.0 for friends

At each table setting I included a mug, two different kinds of biscotti, and k-cup packs for each guest to take home and enjoy. I also included a little candy cane (perfect for stirring) with a cute poem about the legend of the candy cane.

Coffee Gift Ideas with Keurig K-Cup packs and Biscotti

Once we enjoyed the coffee, scones, and some extra biscotti it was time to exchange gifts. When we were finished opening up the ornaments it was time to draw a name for the Keurig 2.0 I was gifting away.

Now there may or may not have been a little friendly competition from my friends but I assure you that no biscotti or scones were harmed when choosing a winner.

The Keurig 2.0 brewer makes a great holiday gift for anyone on your list. You can purchase a Keurig 2.0 K300 like the one I gifted for one of your friends at Walmart. I highly suggest grabbing a box or two of k-cup packs or k-carafe packs to go along with your gift.

Who would you gift a Keurig 2.0 to?

  1. Oh wow! I’ve heard of the new 2.0 but hadn’t seen it in action yet.. I want to gift it to MYSELF! 🙂 Or I could gift it to my husband, since we both share! Ha! That Cafe Mocha looks delicious!

  2. Those scones look delish! I’m a big fan…although I like mine smothered in clotted cream and jam! 🙂 I’ll definitely have to give these a try this holiday.

  3. Such a great party! I’m glad you had a nice time. What a lucky friend too! I have a 2.0 and I love it!

  4. Hmmm…I have no idea who I would gift a Keurig, too! There are so many people who would love this…especially now that it’s the middle of winter in upstate New York. The thought of a cup of coffee (or tea…or cocoa…) at the touch of a button sounds really appealing. Thanks for sharing! #client

  6. Those few minutes I spend calmly sipping my coffee each day are some of my favorite. The berry scones would make it an even more joyful experience.

  8. We picked up a 2.0 earlier this year and have been completely amazed at the variety of flavors available already. It’s our first Keurig and now we’re wondering why we didn’t get one sooner!
