Gift ideas for someone who already has everything

Sponsored collaboration with SLURP

I love giving and receiving gifts. But I’ll admit it gets difficult once you’ve already gone through the basic things: chocolate, pajamas, candles, socks or nail polish. I want to give gifts that are thoughtful and useful. I want the gift to put a smile on the person’s face. Perhaps even get the person to know to some awesome thing or product that I think she or he would love.

Since it’s already Fall and the season of giving (did I hear some jingle bells?), I wanted to give you some ideas to gifts. Especially when you feel like the person already has everything.

Gift ideas for someone who already has everything

  •  Time

Non-material gifts are awesome. My idea: make a gift card to go to a walk, a movie or something else together. The most important thing everyone needs is time spent together. Simple as that.

  • Something hand-made such as a painting, a candle etc.

I’ve surprised myself lately by actually enjoying crafting. I love making candles and just recently I started to paint. I think giving something hand-made always has that little special effect in it, since you’ve put your time and effort (and love) into the gift.

  •  Food

Okay, I know I said chocolate is a ‘basic thing’, but I’ll never get angry at a box of chocolates. Or, you know, something healthier. Everyone needs food and I think food is a great gift. Maybe make a basket of some delicious thing and put a bow on it? Okay, maybe that’s a pretty basic idea. But perhaps you stumbled here in a full gift-giving panic and hadn’t thought of that. In that case: you’re welcome! Ha.

  •  Coffee

Ah, coffee. Now there’s an awesome gift. And giving delicious sustainable coffee as a gift has never been easier. You know I’m a huge fan of Slurp coffee subscription, but did you know you can also give Slurp as a gift? Here is the ultimate gift for someone who has everything.

Slurp coffee as a gift

Slurp coffee subscription is a great gift idea, because you’re not only giving coffee as a gift, but you’ll be gifting an experience. Coffee experience. The person gets the coffee fresh, delivered to his or her doorstep. Gets to try some new artisan coffees.

And: the gift doesn’t go to waste. It can literally be enjoyed, one cup at a time. The prices for gift cards start from 25,76€.

And yes – I do have a discount for you. Code ‘CharlottaLahja’ gives you -10% off on the ongoing coffee subscription and gift cards. So now is a great time to shop for a gift – or pamper yourself with a coffee subscription. Order your SLURP subscription or shop gift cards here. The code is valid until 10.11.19.

And in case this is the first time you hear about Slurp, I recommend reading my first post with them.

Less work, more summer – and always good coffee (+giveaway)

I feel like every year I say the same thing: I love summer. I love the green leaves and flowers everywhere. I love the endless sunlight and the light feeling I get. I love how everything comes to life.

I’m thinking of a reason not to repeat myself, but I can’t think of any. Because the feeling comes back, every year, just as strong. I smile. I feel as if there’s more time (well, there is, because of the light and the energy it gives me).  I feel like I can go and take a break outside, have a nice picnic without timing it. That actually feels like the exact thing I should be doing.

And I know I’m lucky for being able to do that, but at the same time I’ve decided to be my own boss and that’s not just sunshine and rainbows.

But still – Summer is the perfect season to relax a little. To look back at winter, fall and spring and cut some slack.


Espro Travel Press

Espro Travel Press – fresh coffee on the go

And what better way than a picnic with some good, fresh coffee? You know it – I’m drinking good coffee even on a picnic. Life is too short for bad coffee and all that.

Besides – coffee outdoors? Oh boy. It tastes even better, just like food does. Drinking my coffee on a blanket, watching the sky and the trees and our beautiful nature – I’m reminded of all the lovely mornings on a summer cottage and I feel like I’m on a holiday. Even for just a sip of a moment.

On my first post with Slurp I talked about making those coffee moments special with coffee subscription. But did you know that Slurp also sells coffee equipment? Well, in this post I’m introducing Espro Travel Press, which upgrades your picnic take away coffees. You can actually make coffee in just a few minutes, fresh.

Espro Travel Press is actually awarded the product of the year by Specialty Coffee Association of America.


How Espro Travel Press works

What’s awesome about Espro Travel Press is that it makes delicious coffee and keeps it warm and fresh. You can make French press type of coffee, filter coffee or tea with it.

It’s very simple. You simply throw in the coffee and some hot water, push the filter in and withing a few minutes your coffee is ready. The brewing of the coffee stops once the plunger is pressed down, so you don’t have to worry about the coffee grounds on the bottom.

I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical about this thing – but after trying it and tasting the coffee made with it, I’m sold. It’s great. There’s no going back to regular coffee brought on a thermos to a picnic. My picnics suddenly got even better. 

If you have a problem with your coffee turning cold – this could be your solution. It keeps it hot so you can enjoy hot coffee all throughout the afternoon.
