Most of you probably have figured out that I love coffee (if not, look at my Instagram). I adore it and it keeps me going every day when I don’t feel like I can go anymore. Unlike a lot of people, I have made zero comment on the great Starbucks debate of 2015 and have just kept living my life. This post will be no different. Every year Starbucks debuts the most wonderful coffee mugs, ornaments, and little stocking stuffers to the public. About the same time they do this, I swear to myself that I won’t buy any of it because I don’t need anymore coffee mugs or little trinkets. A month later, I’ve bought at least two mugs.
Best Gifts for Coffee Lovers
As a coffee lover, you can trust me to give you the best advice on what to buy the java junkie in your life. The difference between me and them is that they might be more of a coffee snob than I am. You know, the type that has to have their coffee from the deep jungles of some random country where the beans are handpicked by the locals and then aged in an organic wheat sack of some sort. If you just laughed, you know the people I’m talking about.
If they’re the average coffee drinker who walks into their neighborhood Starbucks of Dunkin Donuts every morning, then you’re talking to the right girl. I’ll start you off with something fool proof- a bag of the Starbucks Christmas Blend coffee. You literally can’t go wrong with this delicious brew.
Another easy gift is an adorable Starbucks ornament. They create a bunch of little red cups in ceramic form and attach a red string to them to indulge our red cup obsession and turn it into a profit. It’s also the best ornament ever for a coffee lover.
The iconic Starbucks mermaid always makes her debut on the front of a ceramic travel mug. I absolutely love the way she looks so whimsical. Bonus: you can use this mug all year-round because it’s not seasonal specific. Frankly, I can see myself sipping from this on the beach.
Next on my list is that adorable candy cane mug with the whipped cream lid on it! Can these people get more clever? I absolutely love this mug. There aren’t many mugs out there that have that kind of lid.
If you did advent calendars when you were a kid like I did, then you’ll love the great one Starbucks has this year. Not sure what goodies are inside it but I imagine they’re pretty great. You’ll get bonus points for being so clever too!
For those of you who are reading this in a warmer climate, I haven’t forgotten you! Starbucks has really awesome travel tumblers that are made to keep things cold. Better yet, they sparkle!
Hopefully, one of you knows someone that has a little coffee bar at their house and regularly stocks it with yummy things to make their coffee special! You can buy latte syrup in a bottle that comes with a pump so it’s literally like having your own Starbucks in your house. Add in that hot cocoa gift set and you’re good to go!
