These Coffee Gives Will Spread Joy and Happiness Today

Ready to spread some coffee joy with these coffee gives. A day without coffee is like……… Who am I kidding? I have no idea. My day does not begin without it. First, I drink the coffee. Then I do the things. In that order only. Every. Single. Morning. Because in my world, a coffee a day keeps the grumpy away, and with the right amount of coffee, everything suddenly seems possible.

I know I’m not alone. For many of us, coffee kick starts our stressful days, keeps hectic schedules moving forward, and is quite often that inspirational elixir that aids in many of our uphill battles. Let’s face it, it’s magical stuff. So, what better give to plan today than coffee? Coffee gives are easy, impactful, and spread tons of joy. Start brewing up some happy for someone in your life today – here are some ideas to get that caffeinated ball rolling.

Pass A Coffee Forward!

Surprise someone behind in you in line at your favourite coffee shop. Pay it forward by anonymously buying a coffee for the next customer. Who knows what kind of ripple effect this simple and selfless give may create? After all, life happens, and coffee helps! If you pay for your coffee with a local coffee store app, buy two coffees and ask the coffee shop to pass it forward for you!

Reconnect Over Coffee With Someone You Miss

Even in our normal, over-scheduled lives, it can be challenging to stay meaningfully connected with friends and family. Now, a global pandemic has made the maintenance and development of our personal relationships even trickier. Why not let coffee kick start those reconnections so many of us crave? Enjoy some coffee talk in the park with a friend. Or catch up with someone on a video chat making sure you both have a cup of coffee in hand. Even if we can’t be as close as we’d like these days, coffee is like a hug in a mug, so start giving!

Coffee Cards Make The World A Happier Place

Say thanks with a gift card. We all have someone in our lives that deserves some recognition. A helpful neighbour, supportive co-worker, friendly crossing-guard, or that dedicated teacher in your life tasked with navigating the increasingly complex terrain caused by COVID-19. Whoever makes a difference in your world will likely benefit from some coffee, so grab a few gift cards and keep them at the ready.

Send a Coffee-Themed Care Package

Let’s face it, sometimes a bad day with coffee is better than a good day without it.  So, put together a care package with someone’s favourite roast, a cute coffee cup or eco friendly travel mug, and send some happiness in the mail. This give is especially great for those who are unable to travel, who live far away, went off to college, or have been deployed.

Warm A Heart With A Warm Cup Of Coffee

Warm someone up with a cup. Yes, coffee gives are the perfect way to reconnect, say thanks and share some happy with friends, family, and even that unexpecting person behind you in the drive-thru. But a hot cup of coffee could make the biggest difference and bring the most joy to someone who is struggling. Providing a warm beverage to someone suffering without shelter, especially as the days get colder, can be a game-changer. On your next trip through the drive-thru, buy an extra coffee or a $5 gift card to share with someone in need today.

Coffee can save the day. And remember, giving is like coffee. It awakens your spirit and improves your day. So, start filling your cup with both! Start planning your coffee gives today and make them a simple go-to staple of your year-round daily giving routine. For these and other daily giving ideas, join our 365community today and continue spreading joy and happiness (and coffee too!).
