This Coffee Lovers Gift Guide is perfect for the coffee enthusiast in your life!
If you have a friend or loved one who enjoys coffee as much as we do, then this gift guide is just what the doctor ordered!
Gourmet Coffee Gift Box
If you are anything like me, you cannot have enough coffee in your morning (or noon or night!). Nothing says “I love you” like a nice, big gourmet coffee gift box. Some folks love flavored coffees, but you are always safe to get the different roast varietals.
I was really surprised to learn about the different nuances of the flavors based on where the coffee beans were grown and how the different roasting techniques really accentuated them. I highly recommend the super-safe and fun gift of a flavor medley of beans grown in different regions of the world.
Super Fun Coffee Themed Socks
I love to wear fun socks. Even in my most conservative outfits, a little bit of sock-whimsy is always welcome. These java socks are the bomb! Seriously! How cute is a pair of coffee themed socks to let your personality (not to mention the caffeine addiction) pop through! If your friends love coffee, then they will absolutely love these socks.
World Atlas of Coffee
I am a sucker for all things coffee, and this book is a fascinating description of the various parts of the world where it is grown, the people who grow and harvest these beans, and the roasting process. Have you ever wondered who the first person was who picked these beans, dried them, roasting them, ground them up, and poured hot water over them to form the world’s first cup of coffee? I sure have! The World Atlas of Coffee is a great way to learn all about it.
Desktop Coffee Warmer
OK, I admit that I drink a wee bit too much coffee at work. But, as I get to the bottom of my cup, the coffee has cooled off and it just isn’t as enjoyable as it was fresh out of the pot. This mug warmer solves that problem. It is gravity activated – so set your cup on the surface and it turns on to keep your coffee warm, all the way to the last sip! Remove the mug, and it shuts off.
I like a clean desk, but this is one of the very few things that have earned a spot to remain. It sure beats having to go back to the pot (or the microwave!) to get the coffee back up to temperature.
Snarky Coffee T-Shirts
Coffee is more than a morning drink. It is a way of life. It is a calling. It is you! I love those coffee memes on facebook that make it sound like coffee is the only thing standing between you and a grumpy morning. I have a coworker that just isn’t that pleasant to chat with until her first cup of coffee has had a chance to do its job. Funny – not funny! But these t-shirts really bring out the personality of your favorite coffee addict.
Coffee Sayings on Keychains
Have you ever wondered about the true power of coffee? Given enough, what could you do! I actually worry about traveling to areas where tea is the main drink. Seriously? Tea?!? Coffee is the only real civilized drink. And in case you need a reminder, this coffee keychain will jog your memory. Take over the world with coffee!
Coffee Note Taking Journal
OK, I am absolutely in LOVE with this coffee journal. I enjoy trying different coffee blends, and I sometimes forget which ones I liked the most. This journal makes it easy to record the type of coffee, the brewer, the region, and several different attributes that will help you remember your favorites. We like traveling around to different coffee shops on Saturdays and trying different coffee blends, and this journal is great to keep in the car’s glove box for our next adventure.
If you have a coffee lover in your life, this will be a great addition to help them on their quest for the perfect cup of joe!
Battery Powered Coffee Frother
My husband has a coworker who tries to make lattes at work each day. Unfortunately, she just pours a bunch of cold milk into her drink and then warms it up in the microwave. Mercy! I love a good latte, but it needs a good frothed milk.
Enter the Bonsenkitchen frother. This is battery powered and is great for making a good cappuccino or latte. A couple of batteries and BAM! You can make a nice gourmet coffee drink without an expensive espresso machine.
The Best Off Grid Coffee
My husband has this exact same Aeropress and swears by it! He is a hard core coffee enthusiast and raves over the coffee that comes through his Aeropress. He can’t say enough about the flavor and the lack of bitterness of the coffee. You can make regular coffee or espresso with this portable unit! Jason has taken it to work and left it there for months as several people at work also use it. This is a great, easy, and inexpensive option for the coffee guru in your life!
It is also perfect to take camping as it does not require any electricity and nothing tastes better than a great cup of joe in the middle of the woods!
French Press for the True Classic
If you have never tried a French Press coffee, you are missing out! This is such a fun gift to give! I love that this is simply like tea where you need to wait and allow it to do its magic before you can gently press down and pour out the fresh brew! Full disclosure: don’t make my mistake of pressing down too hard too fast … oops! Look at all those grounds in my mug! Gentle pressing is the key here, unless you like grounds!
Guatemalan Coffee Bean Bracelet
If you like to give a gift that makes people stop right in their tracks, this is the one to give this year! Made from Guatemalan Coffee Beans, this is a gift that will start conversations. The reviews are only 5 stars and everyone is raving over the quality and how much the jewelry smells like strong coffee! I adore gifts that you can’t necessarily find at your local mall. This is the gift where a lot of thought went into it to think about it, locate and order it. Whoever receives this will feel the love that went into it!
This travel mug is incredible!! I love the versatility of this one as I can have hot coffee, iced coffee or even throw a smoothie in here since the straw is so wide! Having a good, solid travel mug offers the option to make coffee at home (see the coffee maker below!) and saves you from buying store-bought coffee each day! The only problem with giving just one will be is the person you give it to will want two to avoid having to wash it every night!
Old Fashioned Coffee Maker
This is a more elaborate gift for the coffee lover! You are giving the gift of time and the gift of coffee, all in one package! We all need more time in our lives and this coffee maker is the answer! Not only does it brew an excellent cup, you can program this to have it hot and ready when you first step out of bed! If you are anything like me, I need that first cup pretty quick in the morning!
This is the pinnacle coffee lovers gift!! What a treat this will be to make your own espresso during the week and on lazy weekend mornings as well! No more going out for expensive lattes since you can now make them easily at home in your pajamas! For true coffee lovers, this is the ultimate treat!
Coffee Flavored Candies
This is such a fun alternative gift for the coffee lover in your life when you want to do something coffee related but not a pound of coffee! You can break up the three pack and give them to different people or even mix them up in gift bags in coffee mugs. Gather up the candies into clear cellophane gift bags and tie with a gorgeous ribbon for a simple officemate gift or small gifts for drop in guests.
