These days, coffee has become a universally loved beverage. As coffee fanatics, ourselves, we love to see that the world has grown to truly appreciate a good cup of coffee in the same way we do. We think what makes coffee so easy to love is the versatility. Each cup of coffee or specialty coffee beverage can be crafted to be just as unique as the individual sipping on it.
For these reasons, we also think coffee can make an incredible and unique gift. As we enter into the holiday season, we know everyone is bustling around preparing for finals, making holiday travel arrangements, planning family meals, and shopping for the perfect gifts for your loved ones.
We have all been there, listing out all those we need to buy gifts for when you get to “that person.” The person you love who is always difficult to buy a gift for. Whether it’s because they are picky, already have everything they want, or don’t want or need anything at all, we all have that one person in our life who stumps us each year when trying to buy them a gift.
This is where coffee comes in.
Coffee can be a wonderful gift for even the pickiest of people on your shopping list. It can be gifted in a multitude of ways, making it a fun and unique gifting option this holiday season.
Give a Coffee Gift Basket
For the coffee lover in your life, nothing could be more easily personalized than a coffee themed gift basket. Fill it up with all their favorite goodies. This could include a coffee mug, ethically sourced coffee beans, treats to go along with coffee, coasters, coffee travel cups, even coffee gift cards to a third wave coffee shop like 7 Corners Coffee in Minneapolis.
Give a Coffee Date
Sometimes the best gifts you can give can’t be wrapped because they include an experience. Plan an outing with your loved one and include a coffee date to get started. When we say date, we don’t mean it has to be romantic, but getting together for coffee with anyone is sure to produce high quality time and good conversation.
Give a Coffee Maker
Give the gift of coffee at home year round with a new coffee maker, pour over, or espresso machine. Your Loved one will find enjoyment creating their own coffee creations at home after receiving this gift.
Give Coffee Accessories
As a coffee lover, you can never have too many mugs for at home or on the go. Not only do mugs and other coffee accessories make great gifts, they also are supporting sustainability by contributing to creating less waste with the use of disposable cups. Some coffee shops even offer discounts if you bring in your own reusable mug.
A high quality travel mug that will keep coffee hot in the winter and iced in the summer is a hot ticket gifting item every year!
Give a Gift Card
Giving a gift card to our café near the university of Minnesota campus is an excellent way to allow your loved one to treat themselves when they need it. On the days where they get up late and have to rush out the door, are trying to meet a work deadline, or just need a good pick me up, they will think of you as they pull out their gift card to order a specialty cup of coffee at 7 Corners Coffee.
As coffee lovers ourselves, we know nothing puts a smile on our face and warms our hearts like the gift of coffee. Whether it’s cozied up in one of our cafes or at home by the fire we hope quality ethically sourced coffee can be a part of enhancing your holiday season this year!
