Kitchenware Gifts  


Coffee Travel Press

If Mom is serious about her coffee, she can get the best brew from a French press, which most coffee experts agree brews the best coffee. Now, she can grab-and-go with the new Bodum Coffee Travel Press. This 16-ounce thermal cup is the equivalent of a “Grande.”

One-Touch Tea Maker

If Mom is a tea lover, she’ll love this new, One-Touch Tea Maker. While pricey, it brews the best tea we’ve ever had—teas we haven’t liked when brewed by the cup taste like amazingly good when slow-brewed in the Breville. The tea kettle brews the variety of tea (black, green, herbal, white) for the perfect length of time. It’s fun watching the tea basket lower and brew. You can auto-set the appliance so tea is ready the minute you get out of bed, get home, etc. We are tea lovers, and we love this device!

Tea Forté:

Kati Loose Tea Brewing Cup

We love this handsome ceramic tumbler with an integrated stainless steel infuser to brew loose tea by the cup. The innovative double-wall construction keeps tea hot and the tumbler is cozy to hold. In pale green, white and a grass design, it brews a generous 12-ounce cup and is dishwasher safe.
