It's that time of year again, folks. Time to get shopping, shopping, shopping! It's also a time when you should think about finding those special gifts at a unique local retailer. Need some good reasons? Shopping locally saves time, is cost effective (saves on gas), and offers a more unique one-of-a-kind gift. Especially when that gift recipient is a coffee lover.
Need some inspiration? We have a few ideas for you.
We have all kinds of goodies in our lobby store just waiting for you to give that special person on your list. We have coffee, of course, but we also have lots of other merchandise that a coffee lover would enjoy.
What better way to show your Verena Street® pride than to wear it around town? Do you like hats? We have 3 different ones to choose from. We have a black Nike dri-fit cap in M/L and L/XL. This is our best selling hat and we get lots of compliments when we wear them out. We also offer a snapback trucker-style cap in brown with tan mesh for a totally different look. We even have a winter beanie hat in 3 different colors for the cold winter months. All of our hats have the Verena Street® logo embroidered on the front.
Another great way to advertise your love of Verena Street® is by wearing one of our super-soft t-shirts. These unisex t-shirts are made by Next Level and come in either grey or black and feature our "Craft Roasted in Dubuque, Iowa" logo on the front. It will quickly become one of your favorite t-shirts. You might just want to buy one for yourself instead of giving it away.
You can even have your phone wear some Verena Street® swag by using one of our branded Pop Sockets. Use this for a better grip on your phone for texting, photo taking, or as a nifty media stand.
The perfect way to store your coffee beans is by using one of the airtight AirScape Canisters. These hold one pound of whole bean or ground coffee and will keep it fresher for a lot longer. Nothing is worse than stale and unflavorful coffee. Our logo is printed on the front of each stainless steel canister and will look great on any kitchen counter.
Tired of your coffee getting cold before you get where you're going? Get one of our 20oz Klean Kanteen insulated stainless steel bottles to keep your coffee piping hot for up to 6 hours! We aren't kidding. We've tested this and burned our lips proving it. It will also keep your iced coffee cold for up to 24 hours. We've even included two different lids for your drinking preference.
What kind of coffee company would we be if we didn't offer a million different coffee mug styles to choose from? We have what you've always been looking for. The perfect mug that fits perfectly in your hands. Different styles and price points, too.
Our classy custom hand thrown pottery mugs are so beautiful that you won't mind letting them sit everywhere in your home or office. Each one of these 14oz mugs is truly one-of-a-kind and made right in Minnesota! They come in a couple different styles and colors to match your mood and are amazingly oven, dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe.
Our newest mug is our vintage style ceramic morning mug featuring our logo on a matte cream finish. This 15oz mug is a nice, heavy-duty, feel good in your hands kinda mug that will quickly become your go-to choice for drinking your morning coffee. It's made with high quality ceramic and is microwave and dishwasher safe.
Finally, we have a 12oz ceramic latte mug that features a wrap-around full-color design with a black handle that matches the black inside. No more scrape marks left in the bottom of your favorite mug. You won't be able to see them! This mug is made with a high quality glossy ceramic that is also microwave and dishwasher safe. A truly nice mug.
If you can't decide what to get or you want to bundle up some things, we will offer to make you a customizable gift basket that has 2 bags of coffee of your choice and a mug of your choice. Price depends on what you choose, but the base price is $40. We only offer this for pick-up only as it's a little tricky to ship these. We can even write what you want on the front of the chalk-board basket. Just call or email us to order one.
We have coffee! Lots of it. You can get it in whole bean, ground, or in single cups. We also sell some of our coffee in either 12oz, 2lb, or even 5lb bags! You can purchase coffee in our lobby, but we do sell it locally in the region at over 750 different locations. In Dubuque alone, we sell our coffee at Sams Club, Walmart, HyVee, Fareway, Walgreen's, Hartig Drug, Steve's Ace Hardware, and the Calico Bean Market. Just use our store locator app online to find a store nearest you.
If you aren't able to get out shopping locally, you can also purchase any of these items online and have them shipped directly to you or your gift recipient. As a matter of fact, we also offer a coffee subscription service that you can either purchase as a one-time gift or as a monthly feature. You choose which coffee you want, when you want it, and we'll take care of the rest. You can change or cancel it at any time.
We hope some of these suggestions were helpful in deciding what to get that coffee lover in your life. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about what we offer. Happy Holidays from Verena Street®!
