As my kids are getting older I am trying to think beyond the immediate gift to something that will last through the years. Something they can “take with them” when they move off to university, that will add some value to their life outside of our home. But something that is truly amazing for them. Like, a milk frother?
My eldest is a “London Fog” aficionado, and has tried to recreate her favourite drink here at home. The vanilla flavoured syrup was easy to find, as was the quality Earl grey tea off amazon.
But, without the frothed milk her fogs tended to “fall flat”
This year for her birthday she is getting a sweet little gift basket filled with Syrups, tea and her very own first appliance, a milk frother.
It may seem like a silly thing to get a teen, but the truth is, she’s growing up and it is time for her to start collecting small items that are HERS. Items she will take with her, and that can help her create comfort in her own space.
This Hamilton Beach Milk Frother and Warmer is small enough, and smart enough that it can squeeze into a dorm room, a studio apartment, or wherever she finds herself after graduation.
And it will bring a little piece of her home routine with her. Her ability to treat herself with that morning frothed latte, or London Fog will let her experience a tiny bit of luxury as she struggles to make her way in the world.
