“First coffee, then presents”

"First coffee, then presents” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying means to have a cup of coffee first, and then open Christmas presents later.

“Merry Christmas! First, coffee. Then presents” was posted on Twitter by Kris on December 25, 2011. The saying probably originated with an image.
