    Comments about HEART COFFEE SCOOP:

    I own the same scoop which I purchased a few years ago. I ordered three new ones to give them as gifts. Unfortunately, the scoops have declined in design quality. They do not have the design details that made me want to share them with friends, such as a lack of depth and roundness of the handle as well as a lack of depth of the carved lettering. They are smaller. They do not have hanging holes. I am considering returning them due to my disappointment.

      I bought this as a 10-year anniversary gift. I was pleasantly surprised at how big and well made the scoop is. The box it comes in is perfectly suited for gift-giving--only a bow is needed. Overall, this is a fantastic buy!

      Comments about HEART COFFEE SCOOP:

      I purchased this coffee scoop as a birthday gift for my grandmother, who loves her morning and afternoon coffee. She thought it was adorable and well-crafted, and she enjoyed reading about how it was manufactured. It was a bit pricey for what it is, but I think it was a great gift overall.

      Comments about HEART COFFEE SCOOP:

      I bought this for my husband - the coffee-maker in our house - as a little extra Valentine's gift. He was delighted. Just one complaint: the product description (I think) said the scoop can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Not according to the manufacturer; they say hand-wash only. Other than that, it's a great little gift and very nice-looking.

        Comments about HEART COFFEE SCOOP:

        I gave this to my husband for Valentine's Day. We're both coffee drinkers, so it could have seemed like a hint for him to make the coffee, but I think he found it charming. It's nice looking and comes nicely packaged. It's an unusual gift that would be appropriate for any coffee lover you love.

            I sent this scoop to my wonderful neighbor for Mother's Day, and she just loves it! She uses it every day, and is reminded that she is loved and revered. The scoop is extremely well made, very pretty, and fits well in any coffee storage cannister. This was a great buy, and a great gift!

                Very cute and useful. I was concerned about the amount of coffee it would hold compared to the normal scoop and the amount was exactly the same so that was great. I also didn't notice online, but the handle says "COFFEE" down the middle of it which I thought was a nice touch. Seems to be of high quality and nice. A little pricey for a coffee scoop but it made a great gift for Mother's Day when I packaged it up with some gourmet coffee. Mom loved it!
