It’s that time of year again. (Dear god, how many times have a started a post with that phrase?) Time to start thinking about gifts for everyone else when all you end up doing is realizing all the things you want/need for Christmas (or Hanukkah). This list is for an actual coffee lover. You could search “coffee” on Pinterest and find plenty of mugs or an oversized t-shirt that says “but first, coffee” (which actually almost made the list but was sold out) … but these items are what I would truly want, so obviously this is what every other coffee lover would be over the moon to open on Christmas morning (or on any one of eight magical nights of Hanukkah, gotta represent).
3) Crate and Barrel white canister
// an opaque air-tight container for storing coffee beans (whole, not ground, of course). My roommate got me a similar container that I love and could not live without
5) Comfy Sweater
// this one is a splurge, but any one who is an avid coffee drinker deserves only the best. (see item 1 for further description)
8) World Market glass bottle
// I use these for storing my homemade simple syrups, but they are also perfect for serving milk or cream to coffee-loving guests
10) Anthropologie coffee mug
// the ever-trending monogrammed mug. Yet I am partial to this sweater mug
because it is what my boyfriend gifted me for our first Christmas as a couple and it was the absolute perfect give.
