Christmas Surprise Gift

Updated on February 28, 2013

Surprising Someone with Christmas Gifts Ideas that Mean Something

Have you ever been stuck for a gift, as well as needing to keep within a budget?

I wrote about gift ideas to give some if you are on a budget, but was surprised when I opened my Gift and my daughter said, "hope you like it, I got the idea from you Blog". That surprised me even more than the gift. And I was happy with not just my gift but that she was happy to give it t me, knowing it was something I would like.

Christmas Gifts on a Budget This is where my Surprise Gift Idea came from.

Coffee My Surprise Gift

I loved it!

I wrote a lens (webpage) about how the recession had caused people to be more budget conscious for the Christmas gift giving season. But never in my wildest dreams did I think my own daughter would find it, read it, and give me one of the things that I said people would like. I had written an idea that if someone on your gift giving list was a coffee drinker, to give them coffee.

My daughter clicked my link, but didn't like the limited flavors available, so actually bought my Coffee at Costco. She bought me a huge bag of Hazlenut Coffee, my favorite. I was so surprised, and just laughed and laughed. She told me that she was going to print out my lens and show it to me in case I didn't like my gift! But of course I liked it, I am on a budget, and coffee isn't cheap these days.

Because of this experience I am including more varieties of coffee here, just in case someone else wants more choices.

Buy your own coffee drinker a gift you can afford - Flavored Coffee

The one thing I love about Amazon is the ease of shopping, and the absolutely fast shipping. I have bought almost everything I have recommended to others. So if you need a gift for a Coffee Drinker for a Birthday, Valentines Day, Easter, or any other day, buying online will save you time, and it's delivered right to your door. Also most of the coffee comes in multi-packs, which makes it really nice.

Before you buy any Coffee that is Beans make sure you know if the person you are buying it for has a coffee grinder, or your gift will not be received well. I will put one here as I too received some Coffee that has to be ground, and my old grinder is long gone. time to get a new one, so I can enjoy the Hawaiian Coffee that another friend sent me.

      Good ideas. I never would have thought of coffee as a Xmas gift, but that is something useful that people can enjoy!

      I like those flavored creamers too with my hot chocolate. Maybe you can add some of those.

      Don't you just love it when your children listen to your advice and suggestions :) Great coffee selections. I used to enjoy grinding my own coffee. I always thought it tasted a little better somehow. Sorry to say, I have now gotten a bit lazier and just purchase it ground.
