Gadget Gift Guides: Keurig Coffee Machines

It’s hard enough to think of a gift when someone’s birthday rolls around. Now you have to pull something out of a hat for every one of your close family members. And apparently it looks bad if you get two people the same thing?!??!!?

Neither I nor you signed up for this, I think. Thankfully, there are a plethora of lovely gift ideas that work for all occasions. Ideas like the Keurig.

Aaaah, the Keurig. My favorite non-computer electronic (and potential gift) in the entire apartment. Keurigs are a line of one-cup coffeemakers that use a pod-based system. You buy K-Cups from retailers, put one in the machine, fill with water, and press the button.

Just don’t forget the cup.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of companies that have jumped on the K-Cup train. Fresh, quality coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and other beverages over in your cupboard is too tempting to resist. Starbucks, Tim Hortons, and Dunkin Donuts all have their own line of K Cups.
