What Should I Get My Boyfriend for Christmas 2013

I applaud you for planning ahead and for asking yourself the question “What should I get my boyfriend for Christmas 2013”. I know it is a tough decision as you want to get something thoughtful, useful and in the meantime romantic.

To narrow your choice down, maybe you should start by figuring out what your boyfriend likes. Is he a sport fanatic? Does he like cooking? Or how does he start his day every morning? Working out in a gym or making a cup of espresso before he does anything else?

If he has been into coffee and espresso making lately, then you can consider something that he doesn’t have or needs an upgrade. Here is some “food for thought”:

Espresso Machine

If he is still making espresso using a Moka Pot from his grandpa’s hand-me-down, maybe it’s time to think about an automatic espresso maker that’s easy to use and saves time in the morning.

Like all appliances, there are so many types of espresso makers on the market from manual lever-driven, semi-automatic, automatic to super-automatic defined based on the level of automation. Generally speaking with the exception of some manual types, the higher level of automation, the more expensive it gets.

Does he like to tinker with different elements in espresso brewing or is he the kind of guy who is more hands-off? If he is the latter, I’d suggest getting him a Nespresso espresso maker that he can spare the trouble of grinding coffee beans, dosing, tamping, extracting and more important, cleaning. No matter which model and what price point it is, a Nespresso espresso machine always operates on the same premise:

  • Choose a coffee pod of coffee intensity and flavor
  • Insert one into the machine
  • Pull the lever up
  • Discard the used pod

No fuss, no muss! It only takes a couple of minutes from brewing to sipping your own creation. The device is very compact in size and often comes in different colors to choose from. Price points are based on the number of features and how the product is bundled with accessories ranging from $100 to several hundred of dollars.

Some models are sold with a milk frother while others are not. The frother is for those who’d enjoy milk-based drinks such as lattes or cappuccinos.

All Nespresso espresso machines come with a starter kit of Nespresso coffee pods of varying flavors. It’s better for him to try these flavors first and decide his favorite/s before buying more.

Yes, this might set you back by a few hundred dollars but he will think of you every morning when making a delicious cup of espresso.

To save you some time from scouring around , I am including a few bestsellers on Amazon with different bundling options.
