Gifts for coffee lovers
It's no secret that American adults love coff. If you know someone who can’t get enough caffeine, gift giving can be super easy. There are a ton of coffee related products on the market and ones for every budget. No matter who you’re buying for or how much you want to spend, there are plenty of options. From a new mug to an espresso machine, we cover our top picks to help you find the ideal gift for the coffee lover in your life.
An espresso machine
For a special gift, an espresso machine is a perfect choice. Prices for espresso machines differ greatly depending on the type and model you choose. For a great quality coffee every time, this De’Longhi EC680M Espresso Machine is a good option. It has fully adjustable controls for coffee to every individual’s taste. This machine makes achieving professional-quality coffee easy as its automatic features do most of the work. For something a little less expensive, the Nespresso Essenza Mini machine is ideal for single-serve coffees. Its super-compact design means it won’t take up a ton of space either.
A French press
If that coffee lover in your life already owns their own espresso machine, why not gift them a French press to let them experiment with different ways of brewing. A French press generally takes a little longer to use than an espresso machine, but they are a fraction of the price and deliver a coffee that is just as good in taste and quality. Gator’s insulated French press is large enough to hold 4 cups. It’s available in 4 different colors so there’s something to suit all tastes. Its insulation means that it will keep coffee warm for an hour longer than a regular glass French Press.
If you know they use an espresso machine, a true coffee lover can never have enough coffee beans at home. Top up their supply with this Lavazza whole bean coffee blend. Blended and roasted in Italy, these beans are medium roasted providing a rich flavor with notes of hazelnut and brown sugar. For those who use a French Press at home, some good-quality coffee grinds make for an inexpensive but useful gift. This light roast ground coffee by BLK and Bold has a subtle fruity flavor, so it’s a good choice for those who enjoy a lighter, sweeter-tasting coffee.
A travel cup
For those who commute to and from work, a travel coffee cup is essential and makes for a very useful gift. The Contigo Snap Seal cup will let them take their morning coffee on the go with a reliable leak-proof lid to avoid spillages. It features double insulated stainless-steel walls which will keep coffee hot for up to 9 hours. It’s also great for hiking or camping as it’s sturdy and durable.
Coffee-themed wall art
Coffee-related wall art makes for a thoughtful gift that is a little different. This printed coffee guide poster from Etsy makes a great addition to a kitchen, bedroom or living room. The poster features a ton of classic coffees, from Americano to Cappuccino, it’s bound to be a hit with any coffee lover. It comes in a range of sizes and is perfect for hanging on a wall.
This is one for the iced coffee lovers. Metal straws are great for the environment and tend to be of better quality than paper straws which can disintegrate. They can be used repeatedly and are perfect for enjoying an iced coffee. These reusable metal straws are collapsible, allowing them to be taken on the go. They come in a set of two and are available in a wide range of colors. Choose their favorite colors for a thoughtful and practical gift.
A coffee scented candle

They are available in 2 sizes with the largest size providing 120 hours of burning time.
A new mug
An avid coffee drinker can never have too many mugs, so a new one is bound to be appreciated. These pressed wildflower mugs from Uncommon Goods are handmade, meaning that every item is unique. They are available in multiple design options and are also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Alternatively, if they love technology, they’re bound to love this smart induction mug warmer. This mug comes with a plate that uses gravity induction technology to warm the mug when placed on top. The warming plate automatically switches off when the mug is removed. If they always find their coffee going cold too quickly, then this is the ideal gift. It can also be used with any mugs they already own.

Chocolate covered coffee beans
