Looking for something to complement the caffeine enthusiast in your life? Choosing a gift that makes them happier than their morning cup of joe can be tricky, but it’s not impossible.
If you want to be the Santa Claus of sipping this holiday season, read on for five of the best gift ideas for coffee lovers!
#1 An Espresso Maker
Many coffee shops sell bags of their coffee, but those fancy drinks never seem to taste as good when you make them at home.
The reason for this? You’re not using espresso! Espresso is pretty much the key ingredient in all your favorite caffeinated beverages, such as:
When your loved one’s morning cup is lacking that oomph that only the best barista can provide, they need an espresso maker. Throw in a few espresso pods along with the brewer to help your loved one cut down on costs, without cutting back on strength and flavor!
#2 A Personalized Mug
If there’s one thing coffee drinkers can’t get enough of, it’s mugs. (Well, actually, it’s caffeine itself, followed very closely by mugs.)
A personalized mug is the perfect way to combine a coffee lover’s favorite things into one perfect gift! If you’re not sure what to put on the mug, here are a few ideas you can use for inspiration:
- A phrase they use a lot
- A picture of their pet
- A quote from their favorite movie or show
- A photo of you together (or a whole collage of photos)
Whatever image you decide on, your loved one will be sure to cherish it no matter what! Because, hey, a free mug is afree mug.
#3 A Coffee Gift Basket
An afternoon coffee is okay, but the best midday pick-me-up is the surprise of a special delivery!
That’s right, gift baskets are no longer limited to flowers and chocolate. These days, you can get virtually any treats delivered directly to your loved one’s door—even caffeinated goodies. A coffee lover’s basket will include everything needed for the perfect café break, such as:
- Coffee blends
- A mug
- Hot cocoa
- Snacks (crackers, pretzels, truffles, etc.)
Coffee gift baskets are the perfect gift to elevate anyone’s morning brew, and they’ll never see it coming!
#4 A Coffee Grinder
Any true java junkie knows that the best coffee comes from beans you grind yourself. Give your loved one the gift of freshly ground coffee every morning with a handy electric grinder.
Grinding your own coffee beans is versatile, and allows you to brew with a wider range of machines, including:
- Regular coffee maker
- Espresso maker
- French press
Freshly ground coffee is also more aromatic, tastier, and opens up more options for beans! (Let’s be real—pre-ground coffee isn’t always what you’re looking for.)
#5 Cappuccino Stencils
For the creative coffee lover—who always wants the perfect Instagram photo—cappuccino stencils are an absolute must. By using a stencil, even rookie brewers can achieve a perfect dusting every time.
Some of the most beautiful patterns you can find in a coffee stencil include:
This is the perfect gift for anyone looking to elevate their barista game and take their love of coffee to the next level!

A Starbucks gift card simply won’t cut it for true coffee connoisseurs. The perfect gift for the caffeine lover in your life is going to require a little more creativity. Fortunately, any of these ideas are sure to surprise and delight even the trickiest person on your list.
So, sit back, sip your cup of joe, and watch your loved ones go crazy over their new coffee collection!
