Did you know that today is National Coffee Day? Monday is the perfect day of the week to celebrate a good cup of joe. I think I’ll celebrate National Coffee Day with a friend.

In celebration of National Coffee Day, I put together a coffee gift basket for my good friend. I included a bag of my favorite coffee, a mug, and the 20th anniversary Edition of Friends The Complete First Season on DVD. I love that show! Many thanks to Eight O’Clock Coffee and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network for sponsoring today’s National Coffee Day celebration.

I love making homemade gifts for my friends and family. This simple coffee gift basket is the perfect treat for a friend who shares my love for coffee. I think she will enjoy the new Eight O’Clock Coffee Central Perk Roast as much as I do. The smooth, medium roast is wonderful. So many of the best Friends scenes were shot in the Central Perk coffee shop. I don’t think I will ever forget Phoebe’s rendition of the song Smelly Cat.
