OK, we know this isn't the shopping channel... but we thought maybe you'd like to take a break and see some of the nifty Java gifts that will brighten the holidays this year.

Why spend even a minute mall-hopping when you can check out all the latest
toys, hats, and other great fashion items at the Java Store?
For starters, dig into the Java Store toybox and give
the kids you know some real softwear. The Duke toy ($12.95)
is cuddly, squeezable, and decked out in white and black with a
grabbable red nose (Rudolph, step aside). With his flexible
arms, he seems to be saying "What, me worry?", and he's
just the right shape to use as a car pillow
on the trip to Grandmother's house.
Duke is a sophisticated guy. To keep him looking his best,
get him one of the colorful Java T-shirts; the 6-month
infant size fits him just fine. The yellow shirt
is a stand-out, with the Java logo in front in purple and
red. The light blue shirt is somewhere between
periwinkle and cornflower and also sports the Java
logo. Sizes are 6-, 12- and 18-month as well as
youth sizes: XS, S, M, and L--all at a reasonable $9.95.
Should you happen to have grownups on your holiday
shopping list, there's the
retro-style Parker Frontier Pen ($17.95), with the Java
logo on the clip and the Sun logo on the barrel and soft grip.
With coffee finally having been declared one of
the essential food groups, presentation is everything.
Order a genuine Java coffee mug: choose between the
flared, green 12-oz. mug with a matte finish ($11.50)
and the "make mine a triple" black, extra capacity
14-ouncer with a rubber coated, no-slide base ($14.95).
Picture your friends and family walking in style in
the Java denim shirt, in soft, medium-blue twill and brightly
embroidered Java logo that stays vivid wash after wash ($42.95).
Or order the Java sweatshirt ($44.95); it's garment-dyed
a smoky gray and doesn't need years of washing to reach the fabled
"favorite sweatshirt" status.
In the jacket department you've got two options.
There's the denim jacket that sports a large color logo in
high-class embroidery on the back ($99.00). For those who live
where they have real winters, only the wool-and-leather jacket will do.
With a black-wool body, black leather sleeves, and black embroidery, this bomber-style jacket rides the cutting edge of retro fashion ($188.95).
That's it, you're there! You can order your whole holiday
shopping list on line and in one sitting. Visit the
Java Store, and your friends, children,
nieces and nephews will look way cool for the holidays.
