Ninja Coffee Bar and Love You a Latte Gift Basket

The holidays are in full swing and there are 4 shopping days left for you last minute shoppers!
Luckily, I have two gift ideas to help save the day and make just about everyone on your list happy!
If you love coffee like my family does, you are going to love the new Ninja Coffee Bar. 
The awesome folk at Ninja sent me a Ninja Coffee Bar to try out and of course I had to wrap it up and surprise my husband. I gave him his early Christmas present around Thanksgiving
 and I swear y'all he had tears of happiness in his eyes! 
My husband and I both love gadgets and let me tell you, the Ninja Coffee Bar does it all!
It can make classic brew, rich brew, over ice, and my personal favorite, specialty brew {dare I say better than Starbucks Frappicinos!}.
It's Auto-iQ technology draws just the right amount of water needed from the reservoir, based on the brew size (from cup to travel mug to carafe) and brew type you select.
 It has a pull out stand to hold mugs and cups so you can brew directly in them.
My husband's favorite feature? The drip stop button. You can pour a cup mid brew and no more messes.
Also included? This reusable filter and double sided scoop.
A detailed coffee cookbook came with our Ninja Coffee Bar and includes 100 recipes {with pictures!} for coffee drinks and desserts including recipes from their spokeswoman {and my husband's celeb crush} Sofia Vegara.
Hard to believe this one machine does so much! No more driving across town to a coffeehouse for a frappe or iced coffee. We can do it all at home with our Ninja Coffee Bar. 
The milk frother is another fun tool. Just heat milk, pump, and 
you've got a frothy, creamy topper for your drink. 
It's delicious on coffee but also try it on hot cocoa!
I already had a black Ninja travel cup but the Ninja Coffee Bar came with this much cooler clear insulated hot/cold cup. You can even brew coffee right in it for iced coffee! 
We use it pretty much every single day.
Note to self: buy 5 more of these awesome Ninja cups! 
Seriously, how gorgeous is this mug of coffee?!
I used cocoa powder and stencils to make the wreath on top.

Looking for a gift basket idea for the coffee lovers you know?
This "Love You a Latte" Coffee Gift Basket makes a great gift all year long.

This gift basket can be customized with just about any coffee product.
I made one for my Dad and one for my Uncle.
Here's what I added to mine:

  1. Personalized Starbucks Cup 
  2. Bag of ground Starbucks coffee
  3. Chocolate covered espresso beans or espresso bark
  4. Biscotti
  5. Travel size creamers/flavor syrups
  6. Themed coffee mug
  7. Starbucks gift card
My Dad got a kick out of this personalized Starbucks cup.
Purchased on Etsy here.

My Dad loved his birthday gift and Ashton {and I} love our new Ninja Coffee Bar.
It looks like 2016 is going to be one great tasting, caffeinated, coffee filled year!

I was sent a Ninja Coffee Bar for review. All opinions are my own.
Pin It Now!


  1. I'm always happy to receive coffee gifts!

  2. I have had my eye on this coffee bar for a couple months now!!! My hubby would love it!

  3. Wow, my husband would go CRAZY for that coffee bar!! Love the basket too!

  4. I've been dying to get one of these Ninja Coffee Bars since I first saw one last month - it's awesome! Although the coffee function is enough to make me happy, that frother is what's making me think I NEED it.

  5. Ok that Ninja Coffee Bar looks awesome! I would probably drink coffee all day long if I had one of these :)

  6. I've been seeing the commercials on TV and think the Ninja Coffee Bar looks like a great coffee maker. What a great gift item too!

  7. I've heard amazing things about that Ninja Coffee Bar brewer and I loved checking it out at BlogHerFood! Love that gift basket idea too! too cute!!

  8. I've been testing out the Ninja Coffee Bar for the last few weeks, and I have to say that I'm absolutely in love. So many cool features... especially that Specialty brew feature, which is nice when I don't feel like dealing with my very fancy (and therefore very temperamental) espresso maker. I may not be giving up my Starbucks just yet, but I think the cute barista will be seeing a lot less of me. ;)

  9. I have been hearing some amazing things about this Ninja Coffee Bar and I need to really get off my duff and go get one! My wallet will be thankful - the coffee shop, notsomuch. :)

  10. My hubby is an absolutely coffee fanatic. I could use one of these, big time. So fun to make a coffee bar, that would go over well at my house. Happy Birthday to your pops. xx

  11. Oooh a coffee bar! How cool is that? I'm more of a manual type person (I like to "hand-brew" coffee with my stove top espresso maker) but I know my hubs would absolutely love this coffee bar!

  12. I love coffee and have gone through quite a few coffee makers at home. One thing I really like about the Ninja Coffee Bar is that in the morning I can brew the coffee directly into my travel mug, grab it and run out the door.

  13. What a great idea. This would be the Christmas gift for my wife. She loves coffee.

  14. Its awesome Ninja Coffee Bar brewer. Till now I didn't use this , but as soon I want to use this. Good post. Thanks for share it.
