Looking for a gift for your dad on the occasion of Fathers Day? You just dont want to pick up something stray and make him giggle at you saying, What I will do with this? you are actually looking for something useful to your father, again not that very straightway utility without any attraction. After all its a gift, not a daily wear!

Make a shortlist of your fathers likings and area of interests. And then sketch out the utility and the essence of that thing in your fathers life. Fix it up and get the right thing from the best store. Got it?

Coffee! Your father is a coffee aficionado? Thats great. Then why are you scratching your head to select a gift for him? Get him an exquisite coffee gift basket. Thats attractive, useful, worthy and a gift he would go wow with.

Its very simple. You can easily prepare a coffee basket on your own. Take a nicely sized, well decorated basket and fill it up with the stuffs you want to gift your father related to coffee making. And add a special touch of your sentiments to make the occasion really memorable.

First and foremost you must fill it up with coffee packs. Now what type of coffee you should choose? This is vital. Actually you are not intending to give your father what he drinks daily but something rare and hardly opted by him in regular times. This rarity factor adds to the value of your gift. When you select the coffee packs, make sure that those flavors are exceptional to your father. You can try out some vanilla flavors or chocolate and cookies flavors to give him a change from his regular practice of drinking coffee. You can really feel the pleasure in his nerves when he takes the sip and breathes deep for the aroma.

You can also add some other beverages along with coffee. Your father is also fond of tea and cocoa. Though coffee takes the first position, but for health concern, he is also fond of tea. Then fill up the basket with some box of teas. You can select some rich tea packs best known worldwide. A Darjeeling tea pack for a change will go best.  

In selecting cocoa dont go for a single flavor. Try individual packs of different flavors of cocoa so that your father can try upon one everyday and finally fixes on a choice. This would be more innovative and your father will appreciate your wit. You can also provide this alteration style in the flavors of coffee. So that he can enjoy the many flavors within a short time.

What else should be the part of your coffee basket? You can add some gourmet cookies, dark chocolate cakes, caramel corn and chocolates to be taken along with the coffee. Creamers are the best accessory to match up a perfect coffee basket. You have often come across the comment that coffee should be drunk in pure for. Why add creamers and those fatty stuffs to cause harm to your health? But would your father dislike if some flavored creams are added to coffee occasionally? So pick up some good and flavored creamers in small amount to fit in the coffee basket.

How can you forget your fathers favorite honey sticks he loves to have with coffee and tea? Once you are satisfied with the side items that your father can have a bite with the sip, and then choose a coffee mug and a teaspoon to complete the list that makes a perfect coffee gift basket for your father. The coffee mug can carry a message of Fathers Day.

Finally seal the basket with a gift wrap and a satin bow with a token card stating your sincere thoughts towards your father. And wait for the clock to strike the dawn of the Fathers Day.
