Gift Ideas for Coffee Lovers

Coffee enthusiasts come in all shapes and sizes, from morning cup devotees to casual sippers. For many individuals, coffee is a lifestyle and not just a way to start the day. They are passionate about roasted beans and delightful drinks. Most likely, you know at least one coffee enthusiast who deserves something unique to complement his passion for coffee. Undoubtedly, they are certain to value a present that has something to do with coffee, regardless of whether they are coffee devotees or just casual coffee drinkers. 

Whether the coffee lover in your life prefers a specially selected bean or a flavored, sweet beverage, here is a selection of ideas to make their mornings brighter, no matter how they like their coffee.

Mugs

One sure way to make a coffee lover’s morning routine more exciting is to give them a new mug to sip their coffee in. Now, I know it may sound lousy and obvious to gift an avid fan of coffee a mug, and they probably already have dozens of mugs, but a mug can be more than just another mug. Think outside the box! Either a quirky and unique mug or a personalized one – paint it, mold it, write on it, customize it, etc. Gift them a mug that they will not just love and appreciate, but will make them feel special. You know that cliché saying, “it’s the thought that counts”? Well, make this mug the embodiment of that phrase.

Travel Mug

You can almost always see your coffee lover friend with a coffee in hand. Why not make their coffee-induced life more easier and stylish with a travel mug? They’ll definitely beam with excitement over a coffee travel mug. Bringing coffee to work or school will be more convenient for them. Also, it’s mother nature approved! 

Coffee Subscription

Help out your coffee lover friend with the “heavy lifting” of decision-making (a.k.a. what coffee to drink) by transferring it in the hands of the experts. Not only will your coffee devotee friends be able to taste various selections of coffee flavors but your casual sipper friends will also be able to widen their coffee horizons.

Coffee Beans

Do a little research and look for coffee beans that you might find interesting or exciting for your coffee lover friend. Although, depending on the category that you’re looking in to, some might be a little expensive or too hard to come by – like, rare coffee beans, location-specific coffee beans, etc. But, hey, you may also find coffee beans are that not on the pricey side of the spectrum nor are they that rare. You can just buy your friend’s usual coffee beans that he buys at the grocery or at a local coffee shop. Again, “it’s the thought that counts.” Anything that has something to do with coffee will probably make your friend smile and appreciate your effort.

Coffee Maker

Gifting a coffee enthusiast with a coffee maker is one sure way to win their heart – or if you’re not trying to win their heart, at least, make their coffee-infused heart burst with glee. There are various types of coffee makers that you can choose from – french press, espresso machine, drip coffee maker, pour-over coffee maker, aeropress, cold brew, stovetop, etc. Although, it would be best to know first what type of coffee your friend drinks and then you can decide on whether he’s open to trying something new or just get him his regular coffee maker.

Coffee Grinder

Your coffee enthusiast friend will require a reliable coffee grinder whether they are establishing their first coffee set-up or upgrading from existing equipment. A decent hand grinder might occasionally make the ideal present because most coffee lovers are more interested in the experience than the actual coffee. However, it would be best to first know whether your coffee-lover friend makes his own coffee from coffee beans or uses pre-mixed coffee powders for coffee machines.

Milk Frother

Elevate your coffee lover friend’s coffee game instantly! A milk frother can create velvety lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos in only a few seconds, making it a must-have appliance for coffee enthusiasts. Gift them with the ability to make those at home on a budget.

Book

Now, I know it would seem derailing to give a coffee-lover a book for a gift, but hear me out. A coffee-lover who is also a book lover. Make sense now? Yes! What gift is more perfect to give your coffee-and-book-lover friend than a book all about coffee. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone.

Coffee Bean Canister

The significance of using the freshest beans for the best-tasting coffee cannot be stressed enough. Gift your coffee-lover friend with an airtight canister to keep their beans fresh before grinding and brewing.

Coaster

Any coffee-lover will need a stylish set of coasters to protect their surfaces whether they prefer hot or iced coffee, especially if they work from home and their coffee usually spends hours sitting on their desk. A coaster is undoubtedly a furniture saver. Just like the book idea gift, it’s like hitting two birds with one stone. One for your coffee enthusiast friend and one for their beloved (or maybe not so loved) furniture.

Coffee Scented Candle

A unique and a “can-never-go-wrong” gift idea for any kind of friend is a scented candle. Any place will look and smell nicer with the addition of candles. Whether lit or not, they offer a chic center point with their lovely jars and delicate fragrance release into a space. They are ideal gifts for both yourself and others. And a coffee scented candle is the perfect go-to gift for your coffee lover friend. 

Gifts are frequently given as a means of reaffirming or establishing our relationship with others, consequently they are more often than not a reflection of both the giver and the recipient as well as their unique relationship. Giving a gift to a person we care about enables us to express our emotions and gratitude for them. Of course, we give gifts to show how much we care. But, it’s also true that the gift will only fully fulfill that purpose if it makes the other person happy, and it won’t make them happy unless they find the gift meaningful. So, no matter how expensive or affordable the gift you give is or the gift you receive, it is always best to be grateful and appreciative for true is the cliché saying that “it’s the thought that counts.”
