Nespresso – What Xmas gifts are there?

Nespresso is a brand of coffee-based pods, that uses special machines to dispense coffee, these come in two forms. One is the classic Nespresso Pod and the second is the Vertuo Pods, these are in general designed for larger coffees and have special barcodes on them to determine how to brew them, in the appropriate machine.

I own 2 machines that cover both types of pods, I also have and had a selection of Nespresso branded accessories so with Xmas coming, what are good gifts to go with your special Nespresso machine, other than just simply more pods. Heres hoping I get some myself! I’m all about getting more coffee, I’ve got to keep my supply ready, but there are some great branded accessories out there, and if you thinking about treating someone who may have or may betting one this Xmas, hopefully, this helps.


Pods storage…

Storage of pods are a useful thing, they do come in stylish boxes, and there are Sleeve dispensers available should you wish to have a couple on display next to your machine. There are also a variety of different clear capsule holders, Cubes, Versilo (imagine connect 4), Rock (open bowl esc shape), these are generally all clear to show off the vibrant colours of the Pods. This is one of the priorities on first purchase as your pods will either be laying around or the sleeves loose in the cupboard.


Aerocinno 3 or 4 or even the mighty barista are ideal for milk lovers, many of the Machines do not have a heater/frother for milk with it. this is fine if you are a black coffee type of person, however, if you do want some milk the Aerocinno is a great addition. Its adds a bit of style to your coffee but more importantly adds a much nicer taste to it compared to just warming milk.


One of the best things Nespresso has done is released an assortment of cups, and over the years these have grown. they often take time and uses designers to work on what type they want, remember these are slightly high end so for many they want that stylish look. To be honest, they have become very different, I have the pure range with the square bottom twisting into a curved top, there are also clear cups with the view range.

The Pixie range is completely different again, a metal type finishes, with vibrant colours in the range, whereas the Origin range is subtle and different again. Of course if you have plenty of cups another good present maybe Travel mugs, these come in both Cold and hot Drinks version, again they have been designed to fit the ranges, and could be useful for those people on the go.


Nespresso also has a range of food and condiments range in their boutiques and online, these are not found in other shops. These are Branded Chocolate squares, Biscuits, and Brown and white sugar sticks. The biscuits and Chocolates come in a variety of flavours, again I would suggest these are more high end and perhaps a little pricey for these, but you are paying for the brand and experience and I’m sure they’re delightful and would make an excellent gift.

Should your machine need a little love and attention there are recycling bags for pods and Descaling kits for machines. these are very handy and can prevent wear and tear on your machine, and extend its life especially in hard water areas.

The Coffee…

With the coffee they do sell individual sleeves of coffee, however, there are different collection packs, these change through the year, but could be a great way to introduce a variety of coffee to someone new to there machine. Or maybe someone whos not fussy that just wants a collection of different coffees, they do packs based on both type of Pods, though there are more available in the classic Nespresso Pod.

This Xmas to make it even more special, Nespresso has an Advent calendar!! with a collection of coffees and a  special treat on the 24th (a Cup I believe) so another unique gift and way to have a selection of some coffee.
