Coffee. Such a delicious treat. And such a fantastic gift for those that love it. Here are a few of our favorite coffee things:
Buying Starbucks cards with Swagbucks (Angela)
If you’re not using Swagbucks, you’re just searching the net for free. Swagbucks is just as easy as Google but you get to reap the rewards (because you know Google is making money off your searches, right?). Use Swagbucks for your regular, everyday internet searches and you can earn a $10 Starbucks Gift Card in two months (give or take a week). Nope, you’re not going to get fancy coffee everyday, but you will get a couple of free drinks just for surfin’ the web (or have a handful of gift cards to give for Christmas 2011). I’ll take it.

Bypassin’ the ‘Bucks and making it at home (Emily)
Emily uses a Aerobie AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker and a Bodum Milk Frother (use a coupon at World Market) to make delicious lattes at home for a fraction of the price of the local coffeehouse. Pick up a few flavored syrups from the closest Cash & Carry, which are priced at about $3 each and they carry every flavor under the sun, and you’re good to go.
If you’re particular about flavoring and love the Starbucks varieties (Cinnamon Dulce, anyone?), retail locations do sell the bottles for about $7.50.
Taking advantage of coffee deals (Kate)
Kate is the queen of scoring on high quality coffee in the grocery stores. And speaking of great coffee deals, you really can’t beat tomorrow’s World Market coffee deal — get (14) 12 oz. bags of World Market coffee for just $1.85. Coffee keeps wonderfully in the freezer!
Now it’s your turn: What types of gifts do you like to give the coffee lover on your Christmas list?
