A charging coaster remains a very cool concept. The traditional coaster serves a basic purpose: to keep any moisture beneath a glass or cup from causing damage to a table or other surface. A charging coaster does this and more. The “charging” component heats up the bottom of a plastic container. If you don’t want the liquid inside the container to become cold, the charging coaster keeps this from happening.
Maybe you not only want to keep your own plastic cups and glasses from going cold, you want to help others from seeing their coffee, tea or hot chocolate from suffering the same fate. The way to help them is to give a charging coaster as a birthday, holiday, or another gift.
Giving the Gift to the Right Recipient
A charging coaster would be a great gift to give to anyone. (See here to find out how they work) Certain friends and family members, however, would be perfect recipients for the gift. Likely, you don’t perform audits of people that you consider the best candidates for a particular gift. A detailed and thorough “gift giving audit” definitely isn’t necessary, either. What you can do is keep the following in mind when trying to figure out what person would benefit the most from a charging coaster:
- People Who Get Totally Lost in Their Work
People do get lost in their work. An artist may become highly engrossed in a creative project he/she labors over and totally losses track of time. An accountant might be overwhelmed with various clients’ tax documents and doesn’t notice the morning has turned into the afternoon. People forget things when they lose themselves in their work. One thing commonly forgotten would be that cup of coffee originally intended to fuel their work.
- Those Who Don’t Have Easy Access to a Microwave
Workers in an office or another environment may or may not have access to a microwave. Sometimes, even when the nearby breakroom has a microwave, being able to leave a desk isn’t always easy. And besides, who really likes to heat up cold beverages in a microwave anyway? Something just isn’t always right there. A heated coaster cup could be much better for those who work in a busy office and aren’t necessarily microwave fans.
- People Who Want Warm Soup or Cereal
Whoever said the charging coaster is only for those who want to keep their beverages warm. The coaster certainly could do a decent job heating up oatmeal, cereal, soup, and more. Do you know someone who likes to eat warm servings of lunch and breakfast selections? They might appreciate receiving an always reliable charging coaster.
An Appreciated Gift
One huge benefit to a charging coaster would be its functional nature. A charging coaster doesn’t just look nice sitting on a desk. It serves the helpful purpose of keeping liquids warm. Anything that helps serve a functional purpose can be a very appreciated gift. Those just might be the best gifts to give.
