We all know that the holidays can be stressful. Party planning, college finals, driving in blizzards, figuring out who all to shop for, and finding that perfect gift for the last couple people on your list. Ugh.
When trying to find a great gift for the last person (or all people) on your gift list, there is one important question you must ask yourself:
Do they like coffee?
If the answer is yes, look no further! If the answer is no, but they enjoy a nice cup of tea, look no further! Here at Bully Brew, we have a unique talent for finding the gift for everyone, and we want to help you out.
The easiest and simplest coffee related gift would be a gift card (to Bully Brew of course). Gift cards are practical and reassure you that you are giving them a gift they can choose for themselves. If you don’t know what kind of coffee or tea they like, then a gift card is a great idea. To make it more festive, get a nice coffee mug and tie a ribbon on it, placing the gift card inside. Cute!
For those on your list who can’t decide what type of coffee they like, a sampler basket is a wonderful gift! Find a little basket that you can spruce up with some ribbon or tulle, and fill it up. A couple half-pounds of beans of different roasts and flavors, a gift card, a mug or thermos, and maybe some chocolate covered espresso beans. This gift basket is sure to please. If the one you are shopping for isn’t a
java drinker, swap the beans for loose leaf tea!
An even better gift than a sampler basket for all the coffee lovers on your list is a VIP Mug Club membership at Bully Brew! This is the bees knees, seriously. The basket includes super great stuff, including 1 pound of beans of your choice, a BB coffee mug, BB viper thermos, a $25 gift card, 50% off drinks every Thursday in 2017, and other specials that only those with a membership get. Wow!!
If you are looking for something unique and handmade, try your hand at this DIY watercolor mug.
To make this adorable mug, all you need is a white coffee mug and some nail polish. This is an adorable and more personal way to give to a coffee lover. Make it even better with a pound of beans or some loose leaf tea, or fill it with chocolate covered espresso beans.
If the one you are shopping for owns a Keurig brewer, K-cups are ideal. You can find them at many stores in a variety of flavors. You can also order in bulk from Amazon. If you would rather get them coffee beans, there are reusable K-cups that can be filled with their favorite beans.
For those who prefer their coffee cold, a cold brew maker is an excellent investment. They can be found on Amazon here. At Bully Brew, we use Tanzanian Peaberry on a course grind for our cold brew. However, Guatemalan is another excellent choice! A cold brew maker such as the one in the link can get you about 4 servings for each batch, depending how big the cup is. You can also buy syrups such as vanilla or caramel at Bully Brew for a sweet addition with a splash of cream.
If you want to make something by hand other than a watercolor mug, maybe you would like to try a coffee cup cozy! If you don’t know how to crotchet, they can also be found online.
I hope that this week’s blog helps at least one person finish up their Christmas list! Buying gifts for a coffee lover may be the easiest of all, and these unique ideas are sure to please everyone.
Merry Christmas and happy shopping!
With love and coffee,
Bully Brew ♥
