After all, you don’t want to get them something they already have or don’t really want. As the holidays draw nearer, the last thing you want to be is stressed out and empty-handed. Below are thirteen gift ideas that are guaranteed to appeal to the consummate coffee drinker. 1. A Brand New Coffee Maker Naturally, a brand new coffee maker or espresso machine is going to be the best gift you can give. However, if your giftee loves coffee, chances are, they already have a coffee maker that they love. But, we can all use an upgrade every now and again, right? How to Buy a Coffee Maker If you know of someone that owns a coffee maker that predates the twenty-first century or simply just wants a more luxurious device, then this is the best gift you can give. It would be recommended that you buy a coffee maker according to the type of coffee that they prefer, for obvious reasons. But that doesn’t mean you can’t splurge a little and buy them an espresso machine that they yearn for. For an indulgence in the finest coffee experience, a new machine designed to make espresso-based, café-quality beverages with optimal strength and brewing technique. Sounds great, right? To get this experience, we would recommend going with either Jura Capresso or Gaggia, as these are both guaranteed to please. Gift Ideas: New Espresso Machine Single-Serve Keurig Coffee Maker 2. An Extra Large Coffee Cup Help the coffee lovers in your life minimize their trips to the kitchen in the morning by getting them an extra large coffee cup. There are plenty of mugs with personality, whether humorously large or with a funny saying. This is the perfect gift to give a friend who likes to start the day with a laugh. 3. Book on the Origins of Coffee What goes better with coffee than a good book? If you’re having trouble finding the right gift for your intellectual friends to read while they enjoy their cup of joe, consider getting them a book that provides information about the origins of coffee. Out of all of our world commodities, coffee has an incredibly interesting story. Your friends can find out the history and journey of coffee from bean to cup and how it’s used in different cultures all over the world. Gift Ideas: The Best Books About Coffee on Amazon 4. Coffee Samplers Even if the coffee lover on your list has a favorite brand, it’s always fun to experiment with different kinds of flavors and roasts. Some coffees – particularly light roasts – are uniquely tasty as after dinner drinks, while other coffee types work well as morning mainstays. Add some variety to your coffee drinker’s day by gifting them a sampler. Coffee samplers are great because you don’t have to guess their favorite flavors and you can’t go wrong with a variety. You can choose from different flavor combinations and purchase them as ground coffee, coffee pods and beans. 5. Coffee Grinders This is the perfect gift for anyone that loves the freshness of grinding their own beans. Gifting them a state-of-the-art coffee grinder will enable them to get the most flavor out of their coffee beans. Whether you’re brewing just a cup or an entire pot, you’ll be surprised how much better your coffee will taste when the beans are freshly ground. There are thousands of different coffee grinders available from a wide variety of brands. We’d recommend going with a Burr grinder to ensure that you gift the best cup of coffee. Ask any barista out there, your loved one will absolutely love the luxury of sipping a fresh cup of coffee from the beans they ground in right in their home. 6. Coffee Club Membership Give your friends a gift that will last long past the holidays. A membership to a coffee club gives them something to look forward to each month, and allows them to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of different flavors and roasts. Your gift might be responsible for helping your coffee lover find their new favorite flavor. 7. USB Heated Coffee Mug Indulge their inner geek and cater to their passion for coffee by giving them a USB-heated coffee mug. This gift allows them to do it all. They can charge their mobile phone or tablet as they surf the web or read the news, all while drinking their coffee. This handy coffee mug makes it more convenient for them to enjoy their coffee while on the go. 8. Milk Frother Milk frothers make it easy to create coffee shop-style beverages right in the comfort of your home. Frothers transform the taste and appearance of milk, flavored-creamer and even coffee. Whether your friends love cappuccinos, regular coffee with a little cream or some other type of heated drink, a milk frother steams, creams and milks more evenly. It also gives them a frothy appearance to improve the taste and appearance of any kind of café-style beverage. Coffee drinkers will appreciate the money they’ve saved by bringing the coffee shop to their kitchen. 9. Coffee Flavored Candies and Fruits What can you give the person who has both a sweet tooth and a passion for coffee? We suggest coffee and espresso-flavored candies and fruits. Your friends can enjoy their coffee in the form of a sweet treat such as espresso beans covered in delectable dark chocolate or mocha-flavored assorted nuts. 10. Cup Warmer A coffee drinker’s biggest pet peeve is cold coffee. Give the gift of a coffee warmer and you’ll never have to deal with a grumpy coffee-loving friend again. The warmer keeps their coffee hot and gives them more time to enjoy the flavor and caffeinated benefits of their current cup. This Jura-Capresso Cup Warmer can heat up to four coffee cups at a time to just the right temperature. 11. Coffee-scented bath and body products Even non-coffee drinkers have a hard time resisting the smell of coffee. Once the caffeine of their morning beverages begins to wear off, give them the pick-me-up of a coffee-scented lotion or body wash. Indulge your friend or family member with one of their favorite scents, and they’ll think of you each time they catch a whiff. 12. Electric Kettles Who says that coffee should only be enjoyed in a brewer? Electric kettles take the fuss out of going into the kitchen to heat water for tea, coffee and other beverages. These kettles heat water quickly and are ideal for French press coffee lovers. Plenty of coffee drinkers also love tea, and a kettle allows them to prepare both with one handy appliance. An electric kettle is an exceptional gift because it also gives your coffee loving friends the gift of convenience. 13. Coffee Candles and Décor If you’re searching for a gift that is both thoughtful and affordable, bring a café atmosphere to the coffee lovers on your list. Coffee scented candles or café décor give people the ambiance of their favorite coffee shop. A set of classic white cups or a retro coffee shop sign is a nice addition to a kitchen or nook area. A coffee scented candle will keep them alert when they can’t get to another cup of coffee.
