10 Top Gifts for Membership Lovers

These are some really fun gifts for your friend that loves a year around experience.

Bonsai Boy of New York

My addiction started early in life. Some were cute; some were plain. Some were large and some were small. There were those that would flower and those that would bear fruit ----- it made no difference to me. I was hooked !

As I look back over the years, I can recall with certainty the actual event that kept me riveted to my hobby and down the path of personal fulfillment. I signed up for my first series of hands-on bonsai classes and later joined my first bonsai club. It was there that I could engross myself in the techniques of the ancient art of bonsai. Before too long, I was teaching the craft to my family and friends and becoming more and more immersed in bonsai activities. Then I joined a second bonsai club. By this time, my small collection had become a large collection, and then a huge collection. My wife and I knew, cared for, and named each and everyone of our trees ---- they became our fun family.

As time passed, we took our hobby of personally growing and training bonsai to another level. We took the show "on the road" to street fairs, craft and flower shows and finally to malls. You can imagine how difficult it was lugging around 5000 lbs. of trees, setting up and breaking down our display, being away from home for days on end. Like our trees, we too grew older and realized that in order to remain active in bonsai, we needed a better way to market our products. In 1993, well before the average person heard of cyberspace, we created a website which has expanded over the years to meet the needs of our customers. Today our internet business has grown to the point where our cyber customers are our primary focus and we no longer do shows.

We keep our prices low by hiring no outside help. As a highly successful family operated business, we take great pride in providing special attention to each and every order. Our customers appreciate the care and effort that we put into selecting and shipping their trees. By utilizing the latest packaging and shipping techniques, we also add to the impressiveness of each gift.

Wine Club

In 1990 we discovered that small family wineries were the most passionate in the wine world and their wines the hidden gems of wine country.

These small wineries handcraft extraordinary wine, but in quantities too limited to be distributed outside their local area. Since 1990 it has been our wine club's mission to help these artisan wineries introduce their wines to the world.

How Do We Pick Wines?

We taste. A lot. Hundreds of wines are rejected each year. We are a small business with one goal: ensure the wines we send are ones our members will love. Our promise has always been that we will only feature wines we would proudly serve to our friends and family in our homes, and we mean it.

Where do the Wines Come From?

We log many miles exploring wine country looking for small, artisan wineries. When we find them, we ask: “What is your best wine? What is the best representation of what you do? Which wine is YOUR favorite?” Those are the interesting, labor-of-love wines made with personal pride that they want to share, and those are the wines we really want our members to experience.

Today, we proudly offer five different wine of the month club levels. Whether for yourself (just pay as you go) or as a gift (just pay for the number of months you want to send) our wine club is unmatched for quality wine and impeccable service.

Hawaii Coffee Company

In Hawaii, Ohana means family, including the extended sense. We are Ohana; a family of sister companies. Together by choice, working with one shared purpose; to delight you with our exquisite coffee and tea...

1864... HELLO, LION COFFEE!
One of America's oldest major coffee companies, LION Coffee roared into life in 1864 in Toledo, Ohio. In 1979, LION moved to Hawaii to focus on the only beans grown in America. That was the year Hawaii officially became LION Coffee Country!

LION's regal standards demand the finest beans, fancy roasting, freshness, and an abundance of cheer! Today, our cheery red bags emblazoned with "the cup that cheers!" are shipped to coffee lovers around the world.

When you drink LION Coffee, you are enjoying over a century of wisdom in every roast.

1968... ALOHA ROYAL KONA COFFEE!
Royal Kona Coffee has a rich history dating back to the days before the world knew about Kona. The dream was to market the little-known bean from Kona Hawaii to International fame so coffee drinkers of the world could know of its Aloha flavor.

Royal Kona Coffee started with a commitment and a promise to Kona Coffee farmers, that we could (and would!) sell all the Kona Coffee beans they could grow. One by one, they came to our door bearing 100 pound bags of green Kona and smiles as wide as the day is long.

When you drink Royal Kona Coffee, you are drinking the first, the original Kona Coffee.

2000... THE OHANA BEGINS
In 2000, Lion Coffee and Royal Kona Coffee formed a partnership. To work together, and help each other grow. The new "family" was called Hawaii Coffee Company.

2004... HI TEA!
Hawaiian Islands Tea was born in 1995, right here in Hawaii, with a mission to produce the world’s most fragrant and flavorful tropical teas. Exotic tropical fruit flavors, blended with premium tea leaves to create fragrant and flavorful tropical tea.

Growing a company was crazy hard before there was the Internet or websites. So when this little sister arrived at our doorstep in 2004, we opened our arms and welcomed her to the family.

We blend, flavor and package all our teas by hand, right here in Hawaii.

2013... ROYAL HAWAIIAN
Chef Alan Wong is considered one of the godfathers of Hawaiian cuisine. He's appeared on the television show Top Chef, cooked a luau at the White House for President Obama (at the annual White House Congressional picnic) -- and has won more awards than we could list here.

When Chef Wong was looking for a top notch roaster to produce his own line of coffees, which would be served exclusively in his award winning restaurants, we were over-the-moon happy to welcome him to the family.

Royal Hawaiian Coffees are developed and endorsed by world-renowned Chef Alan Wong.

Craft Beer Club

You already know that Craft Beers have exploded in popularity over the past decade. What you don't know, there are thousands of awesome craft beers being produced by these new microbreweries. They are all clamoring for your attention, hoping to become your next favorite brewery. One of the best ways to sample these unique beers is by letting The Original Craft Beer Club do the legwork and tasting to bring you the best beer discoveries in the country.

Not just any beer will do. As the number of craft breweries rapidly increased, the range of beer styles and quality also grew. Unfortunately, not every craft brewery uses the best ingredients, or has meticulously tested and perfected their recipes. So, why be disappointed by a beer you're not sure about? We take away the worry and wasted expense by delving wide and deep into the thousands of craft beers out there and select only the beers worthy of your attention.

There are a crazy number of beer styles to enjoy. Trying to sample all of the endless beer styles on your own is an impossible task. If you want to sip a rich, creamy Stout, we’ll get it to you. Want a spicy Ale with a clean hop finish? We got that, too. What about a variety of Lagers; sweet to bitter, pale to black? No problem. You won’t have to worry about hopelessly perusing the craft beer aisle, hoping to find a winner. Better yet, we only feature breweries with very small distribution, meaning you probably won't find them at your local grocery or liquor store. Plus, we'll send your beer directly to your home!

Variety is the spice of life. And with the Original Craft Beer Club, our mission is to present to you, or your gift recipient, a wide range of amazing craft beers. So, if you are tired of the dull, uninspired, mass-produced beers that bog down our liquor stores, take solace that freedom is here. And it tastes amazing.

Join the Club. Join as an ongoing monthly Craft Beer Club member or Give a Craft Beer Club gift of 1 to 12 shipments. Choose monthly, every-other-month or quarterly shipments. Always Free Shipping in the 48 contiguous United States. Up to 3 Free Bonus Gifts plus an optional GREETING CARD included in the first shipment!

Coffee Club

It all started with frequent trips back to our homeland in Costa Rica which serves coffee with tremendous flavor while most people in the U.S. were satisfied with tasteless and bitter coffee. We found the same with coffee from Hawaii and Jamaica. We then realized the common thread between these great coffees; the best varieties are found in volcanic mountain elevations above 3,000 feet where the volcanic soil, cool climate and moisture from the clouds nourish the coffee plants.

While the national coffee chains have recently elevated gourmet coffee there was still something missing and many people are still not aware that coffee can be an exotic experience. This became the reason behind starting our company in 2004, to focus on high quality single origin coffees which is now known in the coffee industry as the third wave of coffee.

Who Are We?

Volcanica Coffee is a specialty retailer of exotic gourmet coffee committed to offering only the finest quality from volcanic regions around the world that is wonderfully exotic and remarkable in taste. We carry over 120 different coffees including single origin, estate, peaberry, decaf and flavored coffees.

We fresh roast on demand in our state of the art roasting facility in Atlanta. Our experienced roast masters understand the nuances and delicacies involved in roasting different varieties. We work directly with coffee farms and local cooperatives and travel to the remote coffee farms to source the best of the best and ensure top quality.

Tea Memberships

It’s rooted deep in our families and culture. It’s the world we have grown up in and know from up close, the gardens of Darjeeling and Assam, the Himalayas looming as a backdrop. We are steeped in a legacy that’s centuries old. We value it and uphold this inheritance.

THE TEA INDUSTRY IS AN OLD INDUSTRY.
It has established a complex system of processors, distributors, importers, exporters, auction houses, warehouses, buyers and sellers. And all play a part in distancing tea’s true essence from tea drinkers, putting months between harvest and cup.

It’s time for a new approach. It’s time to enjoy tea, in an entirely new way.

TEABOX CONNECTS TEA TO PEOPLE.

Not to distributors. Not to resellers. But to tea drinkers.

Uniting the richest flavors of the finest teas with the curious, the cultivated, and the adventurous, all over the world. The freshest tea you’ve ever tasted, from crop to cup. There is simply no simpler way to experience the wonderful complexity of tea.

We believe every tea drinker deserves to know how, where, and when their tea was born. The greatness of a tea lies in its very precise origins. We’re redefining the way the world thinks about and enjoys tea by ensuring the leaves are superbly sourced—and hand-picked and packed—every time. We can do this because we know the best teas in India, and we work right at the sources, in the same gardens where the teas we sell are grown.

DELIVER DELICIOUSNESS
We’re packing up freshness. Tea thrives on freshness—and so do we. We’re small and nimble, and we have no middlemen: we make sure every 100 grams of tea we send out are fresher and tastier than anything you’ve ever had to date. We deliver the most delicious loose leaf teas from Darjeeling, Assam, and Nilgiri to the world every single day.
