Yikes - there are only two weeks left til Christmas!! We can't help ourselves: we love Christmas time. Tis the season for coziness with friends and family, frosty windowpanes, fragrant evergreens, decadent food, and that wondrous feeling of coming in out of the cold to a steamy, delicious beverage. Some people think it's cool to act jaded about the holidays, but not us! We're downright giddy.
One thing that we agree can be stressful about this time of year is trying to find the right presents for everyone on your list. You want the things you give to be special, personal, and carefully thought out, but you don't want to run yourself ragged trying to make it happen. We're here for you!
HubBub has a bunch of great stuff for sale that will make stellar gifts either for coffee lovers in your life, or anyone who you want to turn on to the magic of good coffee. Check it out:
The HubBub tees are a cool cerulean heather on a supremely soft 50/50 American Apparel shirt. The classic HubBub circle logo in a poppin shade of red is on the left breast pocket area, with the text "@Penn" right under it. "Brewed up in 2005 established 2009" is printed across the back, and our pineapple emblem in UPenn colors is uniquely located on the bottom right of the shirt. All in all, a really sweet shirt - $20 at our Spruce Street location.
The HubBub Kleen Kanteen is 16 ounces of indestructible awesomeness. This shiny, stainless steel cup makes a perfect to-go container for coffee, tea, or even water, while helping to keep some paper cups out of the waste stream. As a little thank you on behalf of the planet, we offer $1 coffee refills in the kanteens! These babies are $25 and can be found at both HubBub locations.
Of course, we have bags and bags of delicious coffee from Stumptown and ReAnimator. Share a little slice of your Philadelphia coffee drinking life with everyone back at home! Show your Granddad there's more to coffee than joe from the deli, or introduce your girlfriend to Hairbender and watch her mind get blown! 12 ounce bags of coffee range in price from $14.85-$24, and can be found at Spruce Street and 3LS. We can grind them up for you, or you can take the bags full o' whole beans and grind in small amounts at home (which is what we recommend!).
And if you want to keep it really simple, there are always HubBub Gift Cards. Who wouldn't want their coffee and pastry expenses covered for a few weeks? No one, that's who! Get 'em in any denomination at either HubBub.
So enjoy these last 14 days before Christmas morn. We encourage you to keep in mind that memories are more important than stuff, and that the best part of the holiday season is getting to hang with the people who make your life sweet.
