3. “I once got a subscription to this monthly coffee service. I love coffee to the point where I’m kind of pretentious about it. I always brew a mug to take to work, and this was a nice way to try new coffees and also make sure that I never run out. She knew that my biggest pet peeve is realizing I’m out of coffee and having to stop at a major chain coffee shop on the way to work. I know that makes me sound like an asshole, but I’m very serious about my coffee. It was nice not to worry about that.” – Ethan, 27

So it was only about a month but obviously we were going to miss each other. One of the things she gave me before she left was her pillow. It was honestly really comforting to sleep with it.” – Tyler, 27

It’s all the breakfast staples, hashbrowns, omelettes. It has absolutely become my favorite part of Christmas. Although, this year she’ll be 8 months pregnant so I’m pretty sure I’ll be the one getting up early to make it.” – Keith, 27

9. “My girlfriend has basically replaced everything in my kitchen over the years. I cook at home a lot and bring meals into work, but I didn’t realize that all my stuff was so… basic. New knives, better pots and pans and all that were all eye-openers. But the biggest game-changer was a crock pot. I could leave it on and come home to dinner already made? Honestly, changed my life.” – Stephen, 26
