In my last post, I talked about how my family is scaling back for Christmas this year and why. As I mentioned then, over the next few weeks I plan to do a series of “Under $25 Gift Guides”. Today’s list will highlight the best gifts for coffee lovers in your life. Grab a cup of joe and read on!
And if you’re the coffee lover, see my post on how to enjoy your coffee without breaking your budget!

A New Way to Brew
French Press: The people I know that have French Presses swear by them, and will never go back to a regular drip maker, making this the top of my list of the best gifts for coffee lovers. They also look down their nose at a keurig or other single-serving coffee maker. If your coffee lover doesn’t have a French Press yet, it’s a great option to give them a new way to enjoy their coffee.
Stovetop Espresso Pot: If your coffee drinker is into espresso, I cannot recommend these stovetop pots by Bialetti any higher. We got one for our wedding and we love it.
Unfortunately, the company no longer makes our version, but this one is similar. Bialetti really makes a quality product that brews excellent coffee. If your coffee lover likes to entertain, being able to serve espresso can really ramp up a gathering. While it may not be the right choice for everyone, an espresso pot is a unique gift that many coffee lovers will be sure to appreciate. Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker: Cold brew has become very popular in the last several years. With a cold brew iced coffee maker, your coffee lover won’t have to do a Starbucks run every time they need their caffeine fix!
Silicon Cup Lids: Why did I not know this was a thing this summer? We spent HOURS outside in the early morning this summer, and I was always swatting bugs away from my coffee. If I had these handy little lids, I could have covered my mug when I went dashing after a kid and kept my java bug free. I love the bright colors and the butterflies are removable if that’s not your thing. Not only is this one of the best gifts for coffee lovers, it’s a great gift for parents!
Keurig Reusable Pods: I’ve talked about these reusable pods before but I just love them. The convenience of a keurig is great but the wastefulness really bothers me. I use these almost exclusively now. Using my regular coffee in reusable pods saves me a lot of money too over buying regular k-cups. Saving money and reducing waste guaranteed these pods a spot on my list of best gifts for coffee lovers. Just be sure that these pods, or whichever ones you buy, are compatible with the single-serve machine your coffee lover has.
Bean Grinder: Many serious coffee drinkers want to mix their own coffee blend, or they don’t want to grind their beans until they are ready to drink so their coffee is the freshest. A bean grinder is likely on the wish list of the serious coffee consumer.
Thermal Cup: My house never has enough thermal cups. They get left in the car, at work, and who knows where else. I know I’m not the only one with this problem, which is why this is also on my list of best gifts for coffee lovers. Help your caffeine addict keep their beverage hot on the way to work with a great thermal cup.Demitasse (espresso) cups and saucers: If your coffee lover is an espresso lover, she’ll need the right size cup for serving. I love the set pictured because it’s bright and fun, but you can get more sedated options too.
Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!
Your favorite coffee, or coffee from your travels. Coffee makes a wonderful gift. I love trying new kinds, especially what my friends enjoy. It is helpful to have a sense of what the person likes though. Someone who drinks a french roast black probably won’t be too keen on a mild breakfast blend.
San Francisco Bay OneCup: I love everything about this company. Their coffee is delicious, and their k-cups are more environmentally friendly, making me feel better about the coffee I drink. Plus, they support their community growers and just seem like all around decent people. I don’t get jazzed about brands too often but this one really won my loyalty. I personally like the French Roast but there are several different flavors to choose from.
Coffee sampler set: It’s fun to try to new coffees, especially if you don’t have to buy them yourself! With tons of fun options, from holiday themed to dark roast mixes, you’re sure to find a set your coffee lover will enjoy!
Gift card to their favorite coffee shop: Some people are opposed to giving gift cards for gifts but I am not one of those people. If I know someone likes a store and will shop there, I think it just makes sense to give them a gift card so they don’t have to pay out their own money.
Coffee and Tea Flavored Lip Smackers??? ummmm….okay!!! As a kid I LOVED Lipsmackers, and I’m not ashamed to say that I would totally love and use these. They’d make a great stocking stuffer for the coffee lover in your life!
Do you have any other gift ideas to get the coffee lovers in your life? If you are a coffee addict, what can’t you live without or what’s on the top of your wish list?
