Christmas Gag Gift Ideas for the Coffee Lover and Snob
What to Get a Coffee Snob for Christmas?
When searching for a Christmas gag gift for a coffee snob, you really have no alternative but to get creative and go for the gag.
Why? Because most coffee lovers have all the coffee gadgets known to man. And most non-coffee snobs would just love to bring a java geek down a few pegs. Wouldn't you?
So let's explore all of the outrageous gifts that make great presents for the coffee lover who has every coffee gadget, grinder, French press, fancy espresso machine and antique peculator known to man or woman. So now it's time to consider the alternative Christmas gifts for the person who drives you nuts about all that talk of "cupping", aroma, notes and blend.
Bacon Flavored Coffee
Nothing says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays quite like bacon flavored coffee. This could actually be a serious gift for taste alone, especially if you aren't sure if you're coffee loving snob has a sense of humor (say for instance your boss). The coffee snob may actually like the fact that the coffee has 100% Arabica beans. And most socially conscious coffee snobs love the idea of fair trade coffee.
And hey, who doesn't love bacon? Yes, even your coffee vegan friends will love it, because it's not like there is a real pig floating in the cup or even bacon for that matter.
Seriously, this coffee is still warm when it's shipped and comes from some of the top 2% coffee makers in the world.

The Toilet Bowl Mug
When all fails. When you really need something to make your coffee loving snob laugh (or cry), get them a coffee mug gag gift, like the toilet bowl mug. It's not for the high brow. If you have a serious coffee snob on your hands, they may be too embarrassed to take it to work to sit on their serious desk where they put their perfectly made cup of coffee, but who cares. It's funny and it's Christmas.
The shock value alone will get some good laughs. No serious coffee drinker would expect a toilet bowl coffee mug.
Other Unusual Coffee Mugs
If the toilet bowl coffee cup isn't your cup of tea, why not something unusual but still interesting, funny and unexpected. There are tons of options when it comes to unusual coffee cups. Perhaps you can even make it an inside joke or reference to a running joke. You decide. But the ideas are endless, from guns, to trash cans, to big butts. You're only limited by a non-snobby coffee perspective.
If coffee is your snobs addiction, a prescription coffee mug could be just the medicine for them.
Got a recycling conscious coffee lover on your hands, go with a recycling bin coffee cup.
We all know coffee snobs aren't big fire arms people. In fact, they're known to be a little wimpy, but you could give them a little false sense of "Rocky" with this gun coffee mug.
