Question Advice on packing coffee samplers as gifts? + Cuban Coffee

Gonna pick up some Cuban coffee while I'm across the boarder (I've had it before, it's nothing crazy special but it's decent coffee and kind of a novelty since it's from Cuba). I was planning on giving some away over Christmas and since it's bought in bulk I'll need to package it myself. Any ideas to pack it in a way that will look more presentable than a sandwich bag but also isn't as expensive as buying a bunch of mini mason jars?

I have done something similar in the past, I used sandwich size freezer bags, but then went to dollar store and got small gift bags and tissue paper, putting non festive bags of coffee into the festive gift bags.

Mini Mason Jars are the best.
And so attractive.
After all it is Christmas.

12 for $7 at Wally mart
I used to buy them for pipe tobacco.

I use the 4oz Ball mason jam jars for my 2oz bulk tobacco purchases. I think my price was in the ballpark of $7-8 like you listed.

Thanks guys, I think I'll go with the mini mason jars (thought they were a bit more expensive -- ~0.8$ a jar isn't too bad).

Remember oxygen is the enemy of coffee. The better you can keep them apart, the longer the delicate flavors will keep.

Otherwise, might as well just give out Folgers...

I don't know what I don't know.
