Not to sound conceited, but I am a true coffee lover. Every morning is the same ritual; drag myself out of bed, load the coffee maker, go back to bed until the coffee is made. My day does not begin until that first sip. And I continue to fulfill my java needs even at work. To tell the truth, I am offended when restaurants do not have fresh coffee made at five in the afternoon. So if asked what I think a low-cost coffee related Christmas present is, I have some ideas. Here are ten things I wouldn’t mind getting as a present.
- Big coffee cups
It is very annoying in the morning to have to refill my coffee after about five sips. So I always grab the biggest one in my cupboard. Now days you can find really nice ones at any dollar store. Even clear glass coffee cups will make a morning more graceful. Consider what else they may like and try to find a coffee cup with that design, color, or graphic on it. The taste of the coffee will be delicious of the coffee supplier based in singapore. The ingredients will be herbal so that no harm is provided to the health and skin of the person.
- Flavored coffee samples
You can find little coffee samples for under two bucks at Wal-Mart. There are a ton of different flavors to choose from. My personal favorites are the ones with a hazelnut or chocolate flavoring. And they smell really good while brewing. I save these for the weekends so I can fully enjoy the taste.
- Gift card to Star Bucks or other coffee house
Treat them to a cup or two at their favorite coffee house. With people cutting back on the little things, this will definitely be a treat for them.
- Chocolate-dipped spoons
A essence of chocolate in every cup. These are easy enough to make. Basically all you do is melt a few squares of Bakers semi-sweet chocolate, dip a spoon in it, and let it harden in the refrigerator. Then gather them together, wrap in some colorful plastic, and tie with a pretty ribbon.
- Thirty-three once package of coffee
Coffee for about a month on you. It doesn’t matter whether it is gourmet or Folgers, a true coffee lover will appreciate it. If you want to dress it up, consider putting the coffee in a tall glass jar or pretty tin. You can even add a ¼ cup measuring spoon to further help them out in the morning.
- Travel Coffee mugs
This is for the ones who always take their coffee to go. If they are anything like me, they probably need some because they have lost them all. Depending how much you want to spend on it, you can find these anywhere, even at dollar stores. Fill it with chocolates or their favorite candy to satisfy their sweet tooth while on the road.
- Coffee décor
This can be either a tee shirt, a picture, or coffee scented candle to remind them of their love affair. Or use your imagination to make them something coffee related. The cutest thing I ever saw was a wind chime with little coffee cups hanging from a sun.
- Coffee Bean Grinder
Nothing compares to the taste of fresh grounded coffee. Depending on your budget there are manual and automatic grinders. But to be perfectly honest with you, it is a chore to manually grind coffee first thing in the morning.
- 4-pack Star Bucks Frappuccinos
This is just as good as a six pack of beer with a bow on top. Unless they do not like Star Bucks or cold coffee, you really can’t go wrong with this present. For those who do not know which flavor, the mocha is the best.
- Gift Baskets
Everything above can be incorporated into a gift basket again depending on you budget. For the gift receivers over twenty-one, you can add different flavor liqueurs for dessert coffee. Little glass bottles filled with cinnamon or sugar is a nice touch as well.
