I love coffee, and probably spend around 10 percent of my income on buying espresso-heavy coffee treats. But not anymore! The at-home DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker produces the perfect shot of espresso, and contains a steam wand to froth up creamy steamed milk. I’m saving tons of money by making my fancy coffee drinks at home, and I feel like I’ve really stepped up my kitchen accoutrement game. Isn’t it so much nicer to say, “would you like a latte” than a cup of coffee, anyway?

Gregory Krum, the director of retail at the Shop at Cooper-Hewitt, the National Design Museum, shops for his job. When looking for a wedding present, he suggests gift-givers consider who the people getting married are, and where they are in their lives. You might be saying, “Duh,” but this is what he means: “If they are young and just starting out I give very useful things,” he said. “But if the couple is more established I can be more esoteric with the present.” Gregory recommends buying a gift that has a deeper meaning. This is easier said than done.
