{gift guide} cup of joe

As modern day women, we pretty much have it all.  That's fantastic except when it comes to  gift giving for all my stylish friends, things get a bit difficult.  In my quest to find unique and beautiful gifts, I put together a gift guide associated with the one thing we all pretty much do everyday:  drink coffee. 

I used to only be a social coffee drinker, if I was out shopping with friends we'd stop for a coffee or meet up for a Saturday afternoon cappuccino and chat.  Lately coffee has become so engrained in my morning routine that I can't function without it.  Needless to say, I'm addicted.  As my love and taste for coffee has grown, I've also become a bit more selective about my coffee maker, mug and accoutrements so I was pleased to find these luxurious gifts for my cup of joe! 

What's your coffee style:  gourmet or functional?








2. Heat protecting. Nonslip. The Germans know their coffee mugs.
3. Bling in a Coffee Cup. How cute is that packaging?!
4. Simplicity from Crate & Barrell
5. Must have mustaches














Truly for the woman who has it all!


If nothing else, then please make this:

One of my all time favorite purchases was my French Press for a pot of coffee to savor on the weekends. Love basically everything in this post - I need coffee in pretty form and caffeine function.

Excellent post! I am terrible at choosing gifts for people (or at least I feel I am) and I'm always looking for new ideas. Almost everyone likes coffee...so I'm definitely taking notes!
Thanks!

Mae, I like my coffee the way I like my women, so forgive me for not engaging in this dichotomy of gourmet vs. functional. Can't a guy have it all? Can my coffee (and my ladies) be gourmet, elegant, and delicious, yet also serve a greater purpose?

Would I marry the swarovski bedazzled limited edition nespresso essenza? probably not. but I might date her.

Where does one get the Techivorm Coffee Maker here in the Middle East? After reading this post, I got a huge coffee craving and went and made myself a cup! :)
