A Great Gift for Mom
Article by Mark Pickens
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but there is no need to stress about finding the perfect gift. For the mom who loves coffee, tea or even hot chocolate, a Keurig brewer can be the gift that she will use time and time again; and every time she uses it, she will think of the loving person who gave it to her.
A Keurig brewer is a single shot coffee maker, basically. With this sort of brewer, there is no need to spoon out messy coffee grounds and no frustration of finding the perfect measurements to brew the perfect cup. A Keurig works with Keurig k-cups, also sometimes just called k-cups. These pre-measured, pre-filled cups of coffee, tea or cocoa pop right into the Keurig brewer for the perfect cup every time, any time of day.
Keurig k-cups come in a wide variety of different coffee and tea flavors, from the ultra bold to the standard decaf. This is perhaps one of the reasons why the brewers themselves are so popular. K-cups are easy to use, but do not limit the taste you get from your coffee or tea. In fact, the Keurig k-cups seem to be the major draw to begin with.
In the area of teas, the single brew cups come in herbal teas such as lemon zinger or orange spice. There are also green tea k-cups in regular and decaf versions. The spectrum covered by coffees is enormous, opening the door for the coffee lover to explore new flavors and brands.
A gift like this for that special mom shows her that you care enough to save her precious time and give her coffee house quality brew every day. She will be thrilled at the money she will save by brewing coffee at home instead of hitting up the local coffee shop several days a week. This is one thing that is consistently praised about k-cups and Keurig brewers; that the coffee produced rivals that of any upscale coffee shop. Just because you don’t brew a whole pot doesn’t mean that you are getting vending machine quality coffee!
If your mom already has a Keurig brewer, the ideal Mother’s day gift would consist of her favorite k-cups set out in a colorful gift basket just for her. You could use your creativity to construct a beautiful gift basket that holds muffins, biscotti biscuits, some Keurig k-cups of coffee and tea, and maybe even a nice new coffee mug. Wrap this up nicely with some clear wrapping paper and you’ve made the perfect coffee-lovers Mother’s Day gift!
This sort of gift is not difficult to find, and not difficult to prepare. Give the coffee-loving mom something to smile about this year by playing to her soft spot – a great cup of coffee. Sure, you could go with any standard tried and true gift that many moms will get this year; jewelry or clothes; but why not go a little bit out of the box and find the gift that will really stand out in her eyes?
