With the holidays right around the corner, it's time to think about shopping. A few weeks ago, it seemed a little too early to be seeing holiday decorations about. And Christmas music? Too soon! But with a chill in the air, and with Thanksgiving almost here, we are fast approaching Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Hanukah, and Christmas!
And whether you're a punctilious planner or a procrastinator who frantically handles holiday chores on December 24, we've got you covered. This holiday season, we've debuted some items that are sure to make the coffee lover in your life smile.
First, no matter where your coffee-drinking friend or loved one lives, you can give them the gift of Kaldi's. We offer two types of gift cards, and both are "on sale!"
Our Retail Gift Card can be used at our 13 Missouri cafes and our Schnuck's retail partner cafes. We'll mail you or your gift recipient a physical card, and can include a gift message. For every retail gift card purchase, we'll add 20% to the value of the card for free! A $25 expenditure gets you a $30 gift card, a $50 buy gets you a $60 gift card, and so on. If you or a loved one are regulars at one of our cafes, this is a can't-miss gift! (Note that this gift card is not redeemable on our website.)
And we're offering the same deal on our Virtual Gift Card. This gift card is perfect for those who want to shop online (note: this one works only on our website, and not in-cafe). We'll deliver your Virtual Gift Card via email, and we can include a gift message for you. We have the same holiday special running here: a $25 expenditure gets you a $30 gift card, a $50 buy gets you a $60 gift card, and so on.
Last year we started a new tradition with our Holiday coffee, combining two very different and complex coffees from Sumatra and Ethiopia. With this year's Tis The Season Roast, we again carefully selected two of the finest coffees Sumatra and Ethiopia have to offer. These coffees were chosen to highlight both body and acidity, to warm the heart, stir the soul, and accompany the spirit of the season! And for the second year in a row, we have Firecracker Press to thank for the beautiful packaging. Bring some of this limited edition roast into your home before it's gone.
This year, we created two Kaldi's Holiday gift box options. The one on the left is our "Tis The Season" gift box, and includes a 12 oz bag of our Tis The Season roast, and two 2014-edition Holiday mugs. On the right is our Coffee Sampler gift box, with an 8 oz bag of a single origin coffee, a 5 oz bag of Cafe Kaldi, and a 5 oz bag of Decaf Cafe Kaldi. Both options come in a decorative Kaldi's box, ready to gift. And if you're shipping directly to a loved one, we can insert a personalized note for you.
Designed by one of our baristas at Kayak's Cafe, this year's Holiday Mug features a cranberry red and gold print on a classic 9oz C-handled diner mug.
Finally, our adult zip hoodie is a distressed Alternative Apparel hoodie, and has the Kaldi's name on the front and our goat on the back. This thing is soft, comfortable, and is flying off the shelves. We apologize for stock outs on this - it's been quite popular!
These items are available on our website, and in our 13 Kaldi's cafe locations. We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
