German Mugs

Spice Mixes

Baking and cooking… or a warm drink. The Lebkuchengewürz is a must for anyone baking German Gingerbread. And I’ve used the Bavarian Seasoning on Pork often. It’s a quick shortcut to flavor!
And the Glühwein spice…. a MUST during the Holiday Season. Together with a bottle of wine, and you have made their day!

Tote Bags

Tote bags may seem like an odd gift, but honestly, they are useful, practical, Green, and can be a lot of fun if you find the right one. My daughter carries one instead of a purse! And I always have one (or more) along for shopping, or for running errands. Why carry a boring plastic sack, when you can carry a fun and washable tote?

German Coffee & Tea for the Mug

German coffee culture is a real thing. The average German might even drink MORE coffee than beer… but they love the mild roast of real German coffee the best. As for tea? It’s a delightful way to end the day.  Fruit flavors, hibiscus, and even the cinnamony scent of Winter tea will make someone very happy.
