Top 4 Coffee Housewarming Gift Ideas

There's a big difference between a house and a home. One is a building with four walls, a roof and doors that lock. The other is a warm place with an open door where friends and family can gather together to share memories and make new ones. It takes a lot of work to transform the first into the second. If one of your friends has recently moved to a new space, give her a hand in turning a new house into a home. These four gifts will make the transition go much more quickly.

1. A Homemade Meal
This idea might be the least expensive, but it's also the one that means the most. Chances are your friend hasn't had a chance to to go grocery shopping yet. Her refrigerator and stove might not even be connected yet. Make her a few choice dishes and bring them over so she can take a break from unpacking and enjoy a home-cooked meal in her new place. Bring along a large travel mug of coffee to share and re-energize.

2. A Coffee Grinder
Part of what makes a home so special are the comforting smells it contains. If you think back on your own childhood home, you probably remember the scents of freshly baked cookies and tasty dinners. If you get your friend the Mr. Coffee® Blade Grinder and a package of roasted beans, she'll be able to fill her house with the delicious smell of freshly ground coffee. In no time, she'll be waking up in her new home to the aroma of homemade coffee.

3. A Milk Frother
Moving to a new house is an expensive endeavor. Not only is there the price of the house, there are moving fees and a number of other unexpected surcharges. That doesn't leave a lot of money left for splurging on restaurants and cafes. But with a milk frother, your friend will be able to create barista-quality lattes and cappuccinos at home. The Mr. Coffee® Automatic Milk Frother makes it a snap.

4. Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
Moving and unpacking are stressful. Chances are good that your friend is a little frazzled after dealing with the big move. Chocolate covered espresso beans are a treat with which to de-stress and relax. And the best part? You can totally share with your friend.
