Last Minute Gift Ideas For Him

I’m extremely lucky in that it’s pretty easy to find gifts for the very best boyfriend. As a fellow computer programmer he is somewhat of a geek and anything along those lines will make him happy. Unfortunately, he’s in the minority so I wanted to compile a list of gift suggestions for all different types of men.

For The Geek

Capresso Coffee Burr Grinder

Another gift the coffee lover in your life may appreciate is a burr coffee grinder. Burr grinders crush the beans instead of using blades to chop them like other electric mills. This produces a more uniform ground and has the advantage that the beans don’t get heated as much as when they’re chopped by blades.
