The holiday season is around the corner, which means parties and more parties, shopping trips, and trips back home for the holidays. In the midst of festive cheer, you can’t help but secretly strategize on ways to avoid your crazy uncle or conquer other challenges big and small, like the lukewarm coffee that awaits you at your in-laws’ or parents’ house.

Don’t fret! Peet’s is here to make your holidays brighter with a “Peet’s Coffee Survival Guide” to help make the most of any situation where coffee is involved (think of it as the selfish gift for yourself) whether you’re at home or on the go, along with the return of its holiday menu and new spin on 12 Days of Peet’s.

Peet’s Coffee Survival Guide

  • The Gift of Great Coffee: This holiday season, be the coffee hero and treat your favorite coffee person to a Peet’s holiday gift set, available at a store near you or on our website. Because let’s be honest, life is too short for bad coffee, and nobody wants to be on the naughty list for serving subpar brews. So, spread the cheer, not the fear of lackluster coffee, and watch your loved ones perk up with joy!
  • Java on the Go: Always have K-Cups and capsules with you as backup. When you’re faced with a less-than-ideal cup of coffee at your holiday destinations, you’ll be prepared to whip up a delicious brew with the quality Peet’s is famous for.
  • Travel with Your Tumbler: The holiday hustle and bustle often requires a java jolt on the move. So, bring your trusty tumbler along. It’s not just a cup; it’s your holiday accessory, keeping your coffee hot and your spirits high.
  • Gift a Curated Coffee Bundle to your Holiday Host: To make sure their coffee isn’t ho-ho-horrible, a perfectly curated set of Peet’s most popular coffees is the way to go and let’s be real, it’s secretly a gift for your own taste buds, too!
  • Stocking Stuffers: While Peet’s offers plenty of java joy, you can also find non-coffee related stocking stuffers at ranging from milk chocolate covered cherries, beanies, e-gift cards and more!
  • At Home (Or Your Home Away From Home): Roasted with the finest beans of the year, Peet’s Holiday Blend brims with holiday cheer and offers notes of Guatemalan chocolate, smooth Kenyan blackcurrant, and Ethiopian candied peel with a full Sumatra finish. Enjoy this year’s blend in coffeebars, or purchasing online and at retailers nationwide. Holiday Blend is also available in Decaf and K-Cup pods.
  • Know Your Nearest Peet’s: Wherever you roam this holiday season, make sure you’re never far from your favorite Peet’s Coffee. Our “Find a Peet’s Near You” map on the Peet’s website will be your holiday lifesaver, helping you locate the closest Peet’s to keep your coffee cravings in check.

“We think of the holidays as peak Peet’s,” says Jessica Buttimer, VP Brand, Peet’s Coffee. “Every year, we go to great lengths to make sure coffee people are never without a great cup of coffee all season long, from roasting our best of year Holiday Blend to creating instant on-the-go classics like our new Iced Peppermint Mocha Black Tie.”
