Christmas shopping should be fun – every aspect of the “most wonderful time of the year” should be enjoyed. If it’s not, perhaps you’re doing it wrong. Some compensate in buying presents for others by getting ‘a little something’ for themselves. Even if you don’t do this you can take pleasure from taking note of gifts you may want to receive from others either at Christmas or during the coming year – Christmas is probably the main time when wish-lists are written.
Espresso Cups are an excellent gift. They tick all of the right boxes for what we feel makes a good Christmas (or any other) gift.
Firstly, espresso cups aren’t a usual present. They’re a bit out-there. It’s not like getting a pseudo-comedy coffee mug featuring “world’s greatest” or your average workplace message daubed on the side. They’re more niche, a more specific gift for a particular task – they only accept espresso. As such, you’re not likely to be receiving (or giving) espresso coffee cups every year.
It follows then that you won’t be giving them as gifts every year because they tend to last. We’re under no allusion – many people don’t have espresso every day, so cups don’t get (over)used that often. Some do, of course (present company included) – whether that means we’re more likely to take better care of our espresso cups or more likely to accidentally damage them is down to the individual. A well-made espresso cup can survive a few bumps and bruises here and there – so long as the coffee still tastes good and there’s no visible scarring, everything is alright.
Seriously – take a look at the variety of cups available. Not only the vessels that Espresso Deco have, but others too. There are some incredible designs. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so ‘incredible’ for one person can quickly become ‘ugly’ for the next – all that really means is that there’s something for everyone. Really. Cups, glasses, all colours, designs influenced by architecture, art, fashion, nature and many cultures both old and contemporary – there’s a cup for everyone.
Have you ever received espresso cups for Christmas? Were you expecting to? Was it a nice surprise? Unless you are an espresso cup collector you probably couldn’t have guessed you’d receive such a gift. With so much attention paid to the design, style and aesthetic, espresso cups are an out-of-the-box surprise – they’ll get an instant reaction from whoever’s opening the present.
All of the above adds up to ‘fun’. That’s what espresso cups are, and that’s what Christmas is.
