Aficionado: a person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about an activity, subject, or pastime. We all know one. And we all love them for their serious "into-it-ness". We also know how tough it can be to find the perfect gift for someone with that much enthusiasm and expertise. Well, we're here to help.
Here are 5 gifts for every aficionado in your life.
1. The Beer Guy
Whether they're a home brewer or prefer to scour the beer aisles and blogs for the latest releases, this guy or gal loves their hops. It's a safe bet that they've got Founder's Availability Calendar saved on their phone. This time of year it's all about the ports, imperial stouts and winter ales, and the creamy, caramel-y goodness of our Caramel Lovers Box pairs perfectly.
2. The Coffee Connoisseur
Whether they freshly grind their beans at home or practically live at the local shop, we love the energy they bring to their coffee obsession and just about everything in life.
The Coffee Break is the perfect gift for your coffee obsessed bestie. It includes three of our favorite coffee inspired flavors plus roasted cinnamon nuts, a Starbucks gift card and our classic Grand Rapids Popcorn coffee mug.
3. The DIYer
No Pinterest project is to big or Ana White plan too complex. Once they've got an idea in their head, this person is going to make it happen with their own two hands.
We love The Perfect Pop for the DIYer in your life. It's got the popping pan, oil, plenty of kernel options, and a recipe card. Even the bowls for serving and salts for topping are included.
4. The Chocoholic
Dark chocolate. Milk chocolate. Chocolate cereal. Chocolate chip pancakes. Chocolate ice cream. Chocolate cake. A chocolate porter. Chocolate covered bacon. We could go on and on.
If you've got someone on your list who could eat chocolate with, before and after every meal, look no further than our Chocolate Trio Gift Bag. It comes with Chocolate Drizzle Caramel Corn, chocolate and caramel drenched Cashew Patty and S'mores Popcorn. Trust us. They'll love it.
5. The Outdoor Enthusiast
Their perfect day would start with a long hike in the woods with their best friend and trusty pup followed by drinks around the campfire. Complete the scene for them with the Camping Kit. It's got everything the camper or backyard bonfire aficionado needs to make fresh popped corn over the fire.
