An Ode to Coffee
Coffee is the lifeblood of motherhood. I’ve powered through one baby and toddlerhood on java and am just starting my second round with baby #2. At least 2 cups a day. 3 or 4 cups after a long, sleepless night.
Each cup poured perfectly with my Keurig machine. Like a sweet, sweet nectar that pours from its spout, just moments after I click down on the coffee pod as it mixes gently with my sweetened non-dairy creamer.
Goodness, I love that machine.
Six years ago, long before kids, my husband went to a wedding social and entered his name in to win a Keurig machine. And he won! He became husband of the decade that day! All these years later, I can’t live without my Keurig machine.
It’s THE essential on my “baby gear” must-have list, even though it’s not really for Baby. It’s the best gift for new moms!
All the moms I know are or became coffee drinkers when they became a mom. And having a machine that will make a cup of coffee in less than a minute is a godsend.
Seriously, if you’re trying to think of the best gift for new moms, don’t go for the fluffy blankets, fancy rocking machines, cool toys or adorable clothes,
GET MOMMY A COFFEE MACHINE SHE CAN OPERATE IN HER SLEEP.
Because she will be mostly asleep some mornings when she fires that baby up. Looking after and keeping a little 8-pound bundle of joy is not easy work!
It’s not just a great baby shower gift idea, it works for all occasions:
- Mother’s day is coming up? Get her a Keurig.
- Christmas? Keurig.
- Birthday? Keurig (and steak… you need birthday steak!)
The great thing about Keurig Machines is that they come in different colors and styles. You can buy a behemoth machine that has a tank on it and makes carafes of coffee, all the way down to the ever-cute one cup maker (now available in some gorgeous colors sure to make your kitchen beautiful).
Once the main machine is purchased, you can even get gifts to accessorize the machine. What mom doesn’t want cute accessories and a fully stocked cupboard? Plus, you’ll have gift ideas for the next dozen gift-obligated occasions!
These things are awesome if you want to do your own brew:
Think Coffee cups – Really big coffee cups:
Big Coffee Cups (At least 15 oz) with sayings to make her smile, encourage, or uplift her
Keurig pod variety packs:
Specialty coffees and teas:
Flavored creamers (dairy and non-dairy)
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. A coffee machine is a wonderful gift for a mom, young or old, experienced or not! It’s the best gift for new moms, because most other people are busy buying off the baby registry! Seriously, I use mine every day and love it! And don’t forget, if you are expecting, you can always add a Keurig to your Amazon baby registry here: Create an Amazon Baby Registry
