The Ultimate Gift Guide For Everyone In Your Life (Warning: It’s All Chai)
Let’s be honest, holiday shopping is usually an extreme sport. Between the long lines, wild Karens and non-functional price scanners, it can get pretty hectic. However, this year is a little different. With most of us being grounded by the pandemic (also known to some as a “panoramic”), our focus has shifted to how many gifts we can grab by not leaving our couch. Fair enough.
But then comes the hard part, what do you actually get the people you care about? Especially those people that don’t need any more “things” in their life. The simple answer here is, chai. Yes, it’s in our self interest to say that but there’s no way to go wrong by giving someone something that’s sweet, spicy and easy to make right before the winter hits. Regardless if they’re a pro or completely new to chai, we’re confident that your gift will be the one they keep coming back to.
We’ve created the Ultimate Gift Guide to get you through these last few days of holiday shopping until you can finally spike your eggnog and binge watch “Queen’s Gambit”. Just saying.
1. What to Get Your Parents
Scientifically speaking, immigrant parents are the hardest people to find the perfect gift for.* Mostly because they don’t like anything that involves spending money. Unless it’s the gift of chai, a mug, some biscuits and a handwritten card. Because if they don’t like this, that would contradict everything they’ve been doing for the past five decades. Welp, thanks science.
*We are “science”.
2. What To Get The Excessive Coffee Drinker (aka Your Older Sibling)
Is your older sibling all about the “hustle”? Ingesting copious amounts of coffee to power through their virtual workouts and Zoom meetings? Avoid the afternoon crash, beloved. With the new year around the corner, this is the perfect time to get them to switch to chai and be nicer to their body. Since they won’t listen to you when you say it, the next best thing is to make them feel obligated with a gift. Guilt trip, but make it ~healthy~.

3. What To Get Your Adventurous / High Maintenance / Chai Connoisseur Friend
Did you know that a pound of saffron is worth more than a pound of gold? For that super adventurous person in your life (also sometimes referred to as your roommate), consider our exclusive Saffron Variety Pack. This bad boy comes with 3 individual packs of chai -- 1 signature masala chai, 1 saffron chai and 1 rose chai -- and is one of the most popular items in our store. There’s no way they can get bored with this one.
Also, this is really good for that one friend that claims to know everything about chai. Bet you’ve never had it like dis before.
