When Christmas comes around, everyone has the same question: what to give for Valentine’s Day, where to buy an original gift for Valentine’s Day, where to buy an original gift for Valentine’s Day? We are faced with the eternal doubt about whether to give something, whether not to give anything, whether to take a risk with a surprising gift or try to get away with it?
Well, we dare to recommend a gift that never fails: How about giving a coffee maker for Valentine’s Day? A practical, original, tasteful gift that is sure to surprise your partner and also make you look great because you will use it almost every day. But be careful… not just any model will do. If you want to give a coffee maker as a gift for Valentine’s Day, you’d better look for a romantic coffee maker or one with a special detail that will make it really stand out from the rest.
If coffee and coffee machines are your thing (or your partner’s thing), here are a few original gift ideas for Valentine’s Day. I’m sure you didn’t even know many of them existed, right? Let’s get started!
If you want to buy a romantic coffee machine, the first image that comes to mind is probably something like this.
What do you mean, a heart-shaped coffee machine? Yes, my friends… What could be more romantic than this? The Bialetti Cuore is a uniquely designed capsule coffee maker that fits the bill when it comes to choosing a Valentine’s Day gift. Its main drawback is that it only works with the Bialetti capsule system (not compatible with any other market).
Dolce Gusto Oblo
Dolce Gusto Oblo, the coolest and one of the most popular Dolce Gusto coffee machines, is always a good choice for a gift for your partner. Why? Because the coffee machine is beautiful, because the brand is fashionable, and also because you can choose the colours and adapt your choice to your partner’s taste.
Tassimo Vivy 2
Capsule coffee machines are very practical and are always a suitable gift for those who drink coffee daily but are not barista experts (if you don’t believe it, look here). That’s why here we recommend another model of single-dose capsules to give a coffee machine as a gift on Valentine’s Day: the Tassimo Vivy.
Why do we recommend the Vivy as a coffee machine to give as a gift on 14 February? For these two reasons
- Because it is a tiny and very cheap coffee machine. Convenient, above all.
- Because of the wide variety of beverages offered by Tassimo capsules (not only coffee drinkers like them).
- Because it has been recently updated and revised by Tassimo. As of 2017, we have to talk about the Vivy 2 model (Tassimo T14) and leave the traditional Vivy (Tassimo T12).
Anyway, if you want to know more about this proposal, don’t forget to check out its data sheet:
All right, this one is already a real treat and one that will cost you a lot of money. A real surprise to give this coffee machine a Valentine’s Day gift. But, if you can afford it, there are few better options on the market than this Nivona 758. It is a top-of-the-range superautomatic coffee machine, with few rivals in its segment and with the name Romantica as its surname.
If you want a Valentine’s Day gift for coffee lovers (the good, good kind), then go for any coffee machines from the Swiss manufacturer Nivona. A safe bet.
Bialetti Mini Express
Do you really want to surprise this Valentine’s Day? The Bialetti Mini Express is the perfect choice for an original gift for February 14th. It’s a coffee machine that not many people outside the industry know about, and it’s both beautiful and original at the same time. And if you’re not convinced, look at the picture. But the best of the best, and what makes the Bialetti Mini Express the perfect coffee maker to give as a Valentine’s Day gift, is that it’s a coffee maker for two. What could be more romantic than that?
The spouts of this Bialetti Mini Express interlock like goosenecks to make two cups of espresso (and only two) simultaneously. This coffee maker has no water tank or storage of any kind: every time you use it, it’s to make two cups (well, or double espresso, that is). Doesn’t that sound like a great idea for Valentine’s Day?
And we finish our selection of coffee machines for Valentine’s Day with a truly original gift. Original gifts are always a good resource on these dates, aren’t they? Well, there are few more original coffee machines on the market than this one.
At first glance, many people doubt that the Rok Espresso is even a coffee machine. It doesn’t look like one, and its espresso brewing method is unique and unheard of in the industry… but it works like a charm. It’s a bit expensive compared to other manual coffee machines (such as a Moka, for example), but since we’re talking about a special gift, well… the occasion might be worth it.
Do you have any other Valentine’s Day ideas in mind? Do you use any of these coffee machines, or do you think other machines work perfectly as gifts for lovers? Do you think it’s a good idea to buy a coffee machine for Valentine’s Day?
