Perfect Presents For The Java Junkie
A day just doesn’t start off right without a steaming cup of coffee — at least when you are a coffee lover. You know the type — they don’t just drink their coffee, they breathe it in. It’s the weight of the warm mug, the warmth of the steam and the aroma of the beans that complete their addiction. From that first cup early in the morning to the after-dinner espresso, we found some amazing gifts for the coffee addict on your list this year.
Keep it hot
For those who nurse a cup of coffee all morning, keeping it perfectly warm is key. This classic Primula 1-liter carafe (Amazon, $20) will keep his pot of joe warm and ready for refills. This carafe pours easily with one hand and has a spill-proof top to keep messes to a minimum. Check your nearest Home Goods store for great coffee accessories.
Why not add a smile to her morning with a happy little coffee cup? The Threshold Early Bird mug (Target, $14/set of two) comes with a spoon that conveniently stores in the handle. Who says the early bird gets the worm? We say coffee is better. T.J.Maxx carries a wide selection of coffee mugs — from cute to classic — for everyone on your list.
Serious coffee fans swear there is no better way to make a cup of coffee than with a French press. The Bonjour Hugo French coffee press (Kohl’s, $26) makes eight cups, is simple in design and easy to use. It features a silicone-rimmed press to prevent scratching of the carafe and a wide spout for easy pouring.
Not the same old grind
Coffee lovers often have favorite blends — but they love trying something new. What about an amazing flavored coffee that will wake up his taste buds? Gevalia French Vanilla ground coffee (Amazon, $19/ three 8-ounce packages) has a wonderful aroma and the mild flavor of delicate vanilla. Check out your nearest Marshalls for a variety of flavored coffees.
How do you take yours?
Does her perfect cup of coffee have a bit of cream and sugar? Even if your coffee addict prefers hers black, she will want to offer a choice when entertaining. These embossed cream and sugar servers (Crate & Barrel, $17) are styled like cartons for a fun look on her coffee table or buffet.
Coffee for the crowd
One thing we know about coffee lovers — they tend to stick together. When the crowd comes to her house, they won’t be satisfied with wimpy portions. These stacking jumbo mugs (Cost Plus World Market, $18/set of six) are the perfect size for someone who really loves coffee — and doesn’t want to refill too often. Also available in red or chocolate brown.
