Coffee gifts are great to give to the person who has everything. More practically, they’re excellent presents for people who you don’t know very well, or even for generic gift exchange events.
These days, you can’t walk into a coffee shop without seeing hundreds of coffee accessories. At some point in time, coffee shops started focusing on selling something other than a hot cup of espresso and moved into the world of merchandising.
Nobody does this better than Starbucks. While there is a Starbucks on every corner (more than 13,000 in the world), you’re going to pay a bit more there than at your local mom and pop shop. Because Starbucks has such a clever marketing scheme, their prices are significantly higher than the market average.
As a result, if you’re looking for an affordable coffee gift of mugs, espresso machines or coffee beans, you may want to steer clear of the green logo. While coffee houses are fantastic places to get specialty beans and teas, if you’re going to buy somebody an actual coffee maker you may want to look elsewhere.
Department and specialty stores are best for larger item purchases, and you’ll save a lot of money if you go to one of those. Coffee houses thrive on impulse buys for those looking for coffee gifts. It’s best to be smart about the situation and split up your purchases.
For example, go buy the cappuccino maker at the department store, where you’ll save up to 30 percent. Then, head over to your local coffee shop and purchase the coffee gifts that you’re looking for. Fill up a basket with chocolate covered espresso beans and a bag of fresh coffee.
When in doubt, gift cards make excellent coffee gifts. They can be used at any time toward just about any purchase, and they’re as easy to use as cash.
