    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Chemex set and a pound or two of intelligentsia coffee. Counter Culture is also good. +1 on shah, if she doesn't have a grinder get a grinder and fresh grind

    Right now i'm leaning towards a Bodum french press, a pound of Intelligentsia (we drink Stumptown a lot), a grinder and a miniature succulent (inside joke). Mebbe I'll leave the clothing for christmas

    intelligentsia actually has a lot of great teas too. king crimson is really good, a nice teaset and some high quality teas wouldn't be a bad idea either

    Bodum is a good buy. I wouldn't get too nervous about ultra fresh roasted beans unless the person can appreciate what they're drinking, ie, don't poison their shit with milk and sugar.

    Also, fuck Intelligentsia, you're in PDX for fuckssake. Loads of good local roasters. I'm partial to World Cup myself.

    A camisole. I personally think that you cannot go wrong with la Perla or Agent Provocateur, if that's more her deal. It makes her feel sexy, but not slutty. Which usually means win for you. Silk pajamas do the same thing, though, at $100, you aren't going to get much there. Leggings are iffy. Just an inch wrong here and there, and a supermodel can look like Roseanne.

    Nice, I'll prolly do this, a variety would be even better


    She drinks it black (badass), but she isn't toooo deep into coffee and neither am i, so she wouldn't really need the freshness


    Totally forgot the lingerie game, but she's already got a drawerful, iirc

    thanks for the suggestions guys!

    Anybody got a recommendation for a really low-profile arch support/insole? I got the Superfeet 3/4 length insole, but it still pushes the foot forward and up at the heel, which isn't that helpful with snugger shoes.

    If she's not big on coffee it may not be worth it. Tea is a lot easier, a great variety of high quality stuff is available and is easier to develop a taste for than coffee. Plus, you can resteep shit a lot, it'll last you forever as long as you keep it airtight, and you can have it with dinner and lunch if you ever cook her anything, blah blah blah.

    I don't know. I always think that a fishnet body-stocking is a gift that really say "I care." They're pretty cheap, come in multiple colors, with various holes cut in them...you can buy a few and try them all out!

    I mean she drinks it every morning and really likes it, she's just not into all the hypertechnical mumbo jumbo associated with some of the real connoisseurs (like I'm assuming shah may be)

    Edit: On a fashun note, this is exactly what I wanna look like when I hit 60+:

    sorry for the Mr Porter mumbo jumbo on the side

    100% Kona if you like low acidity, smooth liquid gold (peaberry if you want to feel special, haven't really noticed any difference between them myself). Might be able to get a nice scarf for <$100 or gloves

    My local roasts by the pound while you wait (and the day they ship it out if it's mail order). I love walking out of there with a warm pound of coffee. And, the girl who works there is too damn cute.
