It’s a good thing Christmas only comes once a year because if we had to find gifts for friends, co-workers and family members any more often than that, we’d go bonkers! It isn’t only the money which is traditionally short this time of year, but finding just the right gift can be frustrating, to say the least.
Begin with a List of Coffee Lovers You Know
Why not take a moment to make a list of all the coffee drinkers in your circle, and then consider some of these awesome Christmas gift ideas for coffee lovers. In fact, when you stop to think about it, you might even find a way to get half your holiday shopping done all in one go. Everyone loves coffee, right? So, there you go!
Gift Certificates to Coffee Shops
Perhaps you know that your friends absolutely can’t live without that perpetual cup of coffee, but you aren’t really sure what type of roast they like. However, you may know that they are partial to Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts coffees, so why not get them a gift certificate they can use to buy the coffee of their choice?
Custom Mugs with Matching Pottery
Giving someone a coffee mug for Christmas isn’t exactly a novel idea. But, what about giving them a handcrafted mug complete with a matching piece of custom pottery to be used as a coffee jug? Even Starbucks can’t compete with a handcrafted set of custom pottery and that’s why this is a truly awesome Christmas gift idea for coffee lovers.
An Assortment of Coffee Beans from Around the World
While you can always order whole coffee beans on sites like Gevalia, the beans they have available are mass marketed. If you want a truly unique assortment of coffee beans, do a little digging through the search engines. Stay clear of big brand names because they can buy those coffees any day of the week. Find an unusual assortment from a gourmet coffee distributor and you’ll be BFF – for real!
Coffee Warmers for Cold Winter Days
It seems like no matter how high we set the thermostat in the winter, it’s never warm enough to keep our coffee from chilling way too quickly. Why not give your friend or co-worker a coffee warmer that will keep their coffee warm right down to the very last drop, to borrow a phrase from Maxwell House.
There are Coffee Grinders and Then There are Coffee Grinders
You can find a coffee grinder in almost any department store to go along with those whole beans you are giving, but why not make your gift a bit more unusual? You can find wonderful manual grinders that are reminiscent of days gone by. With a handcrafted mug, what could complete the feel of stepping back in time better than a crank-style coffee grinder crafted from wood?
So here you have some awesome Christmas gift ideas for coffee lovers. If you are lucky, you might even get a good bit of shopping done in a single online session. Now you have time to kick back yourself with a nice, hot cup of java – just what the doctor ordered on a cold, late-autumn afternoon.
