We had an amazing espresso machine that we got from Starbucks and it served us well for about seven years. Recently, we wore it out.

I was unsure we would ever be able to replace it, but we crossed our espresso-dappled fingers and ordered this little machine from Amazon a couple of months back.

Surprisingly, I am thrilled with it! The machine itself is small and therefore takes up a lot less space on our counter. Despite it’s size, this little espresso machine pulls shots like a champ.

Best of all, this machine comes in colors. Our kitchens is black and white, and I enjoy adding splashes of red, which makes this espresso machine a perfect match for our family.

If you are looking for a little espresso machine that could, be sure to read all the set-up instructions and watch the set-up videos before you pull the first shot.

Check this baby out, if you are looking for a new espresso machine for yourself or as a gift.

Apparently, there is a newer model, that you can check out here. But I am perfectly satisfied with the older model we ordered, and it is less expensive.

This brand also makes larger machines and multiple approach machines. We really only drink espresso at home, because we are snobby like that. Jason drinks drip coffee at school, and you can use pretty much any machine for that, as long as you start with quality coffee.

Every year for many years, my (now teenage) daughter looks forward to opening her Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar and seeing what kind of virtual fun awaits her inside this imaginative digital landscape. Jacquie Lawson is a British artist who brings her artwork to life through email cards that combine images, video and music in delightful ways.

Here’s the description of this year’s Alpine Advent Calendar:

This year we’re taking you on a trip to a pretty village in the Swiss Alps. Energetic days on the ski slopes, delicious lunches in bustling cafés, and a cosy chalet on a snowy hillside to welcome you at night. Twenty-five days of Christmassy games, puzzles and our classic animated stories, with beautiful artwork and music and a host of hidden surprises. Compatible with PC, Mac and iPad.

Click here to check out this year’s Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar. Advent calendars make a great holiday gift for faraway folks since they are digital and can be sent via email.

You can also send last year’s Seaside Advent Calendar. Here’s the description:

The quirky fun of an English seaside village may not be an obvious Christmas setting … but imagine … the twinkling of fairy lights reflected on the sea, bracing walks along the sands, and warm log fires in the cosy tea shops and pubs! Twenty-five days of Christmassy games, puzzles and our classic animated stories, with beautiful artwork and music and a host of hidden surprises. Compatible with PC, Mac and iPad.

I hope you enjoy checking out Jacquie Lawson’s Advent Calendars.

May your days be merry and bright and may these daily Advent Calendars increase your holiday joy. Happy holidays!
