The clock is ticking toward the holiday gift-giving season and BIGGBY® COFFEE, with more than 240 locations, has the solution for all shopping procrastinators alike.
Whether it’s a cup of joe to get folks going in the morning, an interesting read for an aspiring entrepreneur or other items in the BIGGBY® catalog, there’s a gift for everyone on your list.
Items available at your local BIGGBY® COFFEE (while supplies last) or on BIGGBY®’s online store, where you can shop from the comfort of your own home. There’s even free shipping for orders over $50, a move that will show the importance of a giver’s relationship to the recipient all while staying socially distanced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are four ideas for our favorite items this year:
Coffee (of course)
This is the bread-and-butter of how BIGGBY® went from a single start-up shop in Lansing to a 25-year-old, $100 million business that employs thousands and pleases even more with carefully chosen and perfectly roasted brews.
Choose the size and flavor, caffeinated or unleaded and the right brewing style, from a whole pot to single-serve K-cups, BIGGBY® has the right gift for family, friends, work colleagues or neighbors. There’s even a subscription that can send coffee at four different time intervals from a weekly frequency to every other month.
It’s a can’t-miss gift.
Coffee (with a larger purpose)
This collaboration with the non-profit Living Hope International plants seeds far beyond the trees from which the beans are picked. This farm-direct coffee comes from the Living Hope property in Ndola, Zambia, a farm co-founder Bob Fish and his wife visited while working to source 50 percent of BIGGBY®s coffee purchased each year before 2023.
The proceeds from Living Hope coffee supports the group’s ministry to provide shelter, food, education and hope to orphaned and at-risk children in Zambia. Since the partnership began, the organization has been able to add 70 beds to its orphanage, which also educates and prepares the children for their future lives.
The phenomenally rich flavor with notes of with tones of citrus, chocolate and spices are an added bonus, Fish said.
This checks all the boxes, cards or stockings, you name it. Don’t know what to buy or prefer to let the people on your list choose their gifts? A gift card of your chosen value gives the best of both worlds – gift-giver fulfills goals by giving what people want, and the recipient takes it from there for something to eat or drink. You can even send the present digitally here.
Mugs (and more)
All this coffee (or tea) has to have a vessel to get it from hand to mouth, right? BIGGBY® has mugs in all shapes, sizes and materials. There are ceramic mugs for at home, on-the-go travel containers and a variety of reusable and dishwasher-friendly plastic cups.
And because Biggy wants guests to hydrate when they aren’t drinking coffee, there are water bottles to get you through the rest of your day.
A ‘must-read’ for start-up dreamers
Mike McFall wrote the book on what it takes to be an entrepreneur, using his background as BIGGBY® Co-CEO, to explain the dedication and mindset necessary for success. Hint: It doesn’t come overnight or for the faint-at-heart. McFall’s no-nonsense advice tracks successes and pitfalls from both the BIGGBY® perspective and franchisees who achieved beyond initial projections. But it’s also an unvarnished look behind the scenes and a must-read, according to business leaders, educators and investors.
Gear (including this adorbs onesie)
That cute little nugget of yours (or a relative or friend) can represent BIGGBY® COFFEE and the development of a coffee-lover in any of four colors of this 12-month-old onesie. Shoppers find it hard to resist. Don’t worry, there are adult T-shirts, hats, sweaters, hair scrunchies and even a nod to 2020’s COVID-19 pandemic with an all-new mask.
Pet water bowl
For your favorite traveling companion, whether hiking, camping, driving or just hanging out in the yard, BIGGBY®s water bowl keeps your buddy refreshed and ready to go. The 2-inch foldable bowl comes in two colors (we don’t think your dog will judge your selection) and has a carabiner coupling for easy transport.
