Four Gifts for a Coffee Lover

Author: Nicola Fowlie, Front of House and Retail Team Leader

Four more days of Christmas shopping to go, so here are four ideas for your favourite coffee-lover!

Pattern Project Mug
This Dowse merchandise is part of the Pattern Project range – a partnership between The Dowse and local designers. Available in coloured, geometric shapes inspired by the museum’s collection room, or the typographic print inspired by features on The Dowse’s windows, by local designers Eva Charlton and Alfred Hoi.


Designed in the Hutt Valley and made in Dunedin by fabulous ceramicists Three Cups of Tea – support local makers and your local museum!

Natty Enamel Pin
A way to publicly celebrate your love for the good stuff! This very cute coffee pot enamel pin is one of a range by Berhampore-based makers Natty.

Kapu Uku
These Te Awamutu made kapu uku (clay cups) are a styley way to carry your favourite brown drink. Bright and colourful designs and lids and in a range of sizes – these are a real Xmas present winner.

Ceramic Mugs
It was hard to narrow down just one ceramic piece to share as we're so proud to stock so many beautiful locally made ceramic pieces from so many talented potters.

For the short black-lover we have Galit Maxwell’s espresso cups; for someone who prefers their coffee iced, Snowfox Ceramics has lovely unique tumblers, and for a no-nonsense, bucket of coffee kinda person – Paul Maseyk’s quirky bunny mug.
