Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box Review

Posted on Nov 14 2013 - 11:29am by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free as part of a review for 1-800 Baskets. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

I will freely admit, I am a coffee addict. If there isn’t coffee in the house, my husband knows it’s going to be a very interesting day. For this reason, coffee gift cards are very common in my household. I mean, really, I came from a long line of coffee addicts, all of whom know that when we have a family gathering, there better be a full pot of coffee. That being said, I always struggle to find the perfect gift set to give to members of my family. Finding something that makes everyone happy is a challenge, meaning I have to find a high quality gift set. During my search for finding unique gifts for my gift guide, I was approached by 1-800 Baskets, who introduced me to their Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box. When I was asked if I wanted to review their box, I happily accepted, knowing this was one review that could very well make gift giving much easier for me!

Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box: What is It

Looking for a gift set that will make any coffee lover perk? If so, you will love the Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box. This unique gift set features two types of premium French roast coffees, a yummy French vanilla, a decadent chocolate dessert coffee, and a canned cappuccino that is perfect for anyone who is constantly on the go. Top that off with dark chocolate rolled wafers and rock candy-style swizzle sticks to make the perfect gift set for any coffee and chocolate lover.

Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box: Quality

From what I have seen previously, gift sets are usually very hit or miss. Its hard making everyone happy, especially since everyone has different tastes. Usually there is a mix of well known companies and some unknown ones in gift sets, hoping to get some small business some extra exposure during the holidays. I can say that 1-800 Baskets did a superb job putting together this gift box. Everything in the Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box seems to complement the other products well, from the coffees to the cute rock candy sticks. I have never seen a gift set that was presented so beautifully, especially with such simple products. Everything really looks amazing and all the products are high quality, making me amazed that the gift set is really so inexpensive. I know I personally wouldn’t be embarrassed giving this as a gift to any member of my family or friends.

Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box: Taste

Having received quite a few coffee gift sets over the years, I’ve grown used to loving some coffees and hating others in gift sets. It seems to go with the territory. A few good coffees and then some no name coffees that you wished never existed. Bad coffee is like fruitcake – no one wants it but have to smile when they get it. It was actually quite surprising when it wasn’t the case with the Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box. Every coffee in this set tasted amazing – even the Chocolate Mudslide! My biggest concern is that I fell in love with some of the coffees and now have to find them again! Each of these coffees are full of flavor and have an amazing aroma, making waking up in the morning even better!

Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box: Overall

Okay, this gift set was a little piece of heaven for me. Every one of the coffees were amazing! The only thing I haven’t tried yet out of this gift set is the canned coffee, which I’m saving for our next marathon driving session. If you have a friend or relative who loves coffee, don’t walk – run to get this gift set! It really is the perfect spoiling session for any coffee drinker. Based on my own experience with this gift set, I am happy to give the Wake Up Call! Coffee Market Box an A+ rating!

    It seems like box gift sets are all the rage. I love them! This one sounds like something I could give my very difficult to shop for Brother-in-law. Thanks for the review!

    I would love to wake up to that at my doorstep! What a wonderful gift box. I'm a huge coffee fan myself and so is the rest of my family so this would make a great Christmas present for most of them.

    I admit I was very skeptical until the price came up in review. I thought it was going to be at least 69.99$. Wow pretty reasonable for a nice gift

      its one of the reasons I love 1-800 Baskets. They also own 1-800 Flowers which does the same thing. They keep their prices low by not taking care of shipping themselves but working with mom and pop businesses in your area. 🙂
