If you have a friend who loves something, is a huge, HUGE fan, don’t they go around collecting things that reflect that love. Trading cards, matchboxes, coins, stamps are the most familiar to most. There are also those who have collections of everything made with their favorite on it. For example a fan of a singer would usually have all their albums and memorabilia. There are quite a number of people who have huge collections of the various Barbie dolls and the matching outfits and accessories.
If you knew someone who is absolutely into coffee, wouldn’t it be great to help him or her build his collection? Think about it! These would be practical gifts that they could not only look at but enjoy. And if they get a great brew using your gift, woohoo!
You don’t even need to go very far for gift ideas. Thanks to the many coffee shops spread all over the city, you can take a look around right there and find great ideas and have a cup for yourself while you’re at it. And if the coffee shops don’t have it (heaven forbid!) then go on over to a gourmet coffee shop and ask for suggestions on where to find the equipment you want. It can’t be that hard to find a good coffeemaker, a great coffee grinder or a really handy coffee press.
You don’t even need to look for anything fancy. You can keep it simple, like getting him or her a really good coffee mug. One that can make him laugh just looking at it and warm him with thoughts of you guys. One that at the same time keeps tha coffee’s temperature perfect til he or she drinks it.
Of course you can always go get a coffee mug mouse for him or her. Just don’t forget to remind them to move slowly when it has coffee in it. Oh, and no matter what, try not to get coffee on the keyboard or laptop.
