1. Fairtrade coffee
The coffee beans themselves are of course the most important part, so why not give the gift of ethical, fairtrade coffee? Cafe Direct has a coffee gift box that includes two 250g bags of their freshly roasted coffee. There are currently four roasts to choose from; Rich & Chocolatey, Roaster’s Choice Espresso, Roaster’s Choice Decaf, or Bright & Aromatic.
Cafe Direct has worked directly with growers for over 30 years and reinvests 50% of their profits back into the farming communities they source their coffee from. The company has also been B-Corps certified, meaning that they hold high environmental and social standards.
2. Funny coffee and espresso mugs
Many coffee drinkers love having new mugs to add to their collection, especially if it can brighten their Monday morning! One option is this amusing mug from Etsy seller GiftsbyZahra. On their listing, there’s an option to choose either 11oz or 15oz capacity.
3. Book about coffee
For the book lovers in your life, consider getting them a coffee manual! Craft Coffee: A Manual written by Jessica Easto gives a great overview of the world of coffee. The blurb states at the back, “Craft Coffee helps you figure out what you like, what to buy, and how to use it.”. The book also teaches readers how to use 10 different brewing devices.
4. Espresso-scented candle
If you love the taste of coffee, why not have your room smell like it, too? There are many artisans on Etsy that make coffee-scented candles, such as KikiCandlesca with their Roasted Espresso wood wick candle. It has notes of espresso, vanilla, hazelnut, and cinnamon. The wood wick in the candle adds an extra flair, as wood wicks crackle like a campfire when burned! These are perfect for any espresso aficionado.
5. Collapsible travel mug
Anyone that takes their coffee to go might be familiar with the challenge of finding a place to store their mug once it’s empty. The Stojo aims to remove that challenge with their collapsible silicone travel mug. It comes with both a sipping lid and a straw to enjoy hot and cold drinks with on the go!
6. Collapsible straw
Depending on where you live, most cafes and restaurants have moved over to paper straws or sipping lids for their beverages. With this collapsible stainless steel straw from FinalStraw, you can comfortably sip your favorite drink without worrying about soggy paper straws. The silicone tip protects your teeth from the cold temperature so you can get the most enjoyment out of your drink.
7. Cold brew coffee maker
With summer just around the corner, another great gift idea is the Takeya cold brew coffee maker. Not only will it help you save money, but you can make deliciously smooth cold brew at home. All you need to do is add coffee grounds inside of the filter, add water, and let it brew for at least 20 hours for the best flavor.
8. Coffee grounds body scrub
If you know that your friend or family member loves pampering themselves, get them an exfoliating scrub made of coffee grounds! The brand Frank Body has several different coffee scrubs to choose from, including: coconut, cacao, original, and a whipped formula. The products are also safe for vegans.
9. Coffee themed shirt
Many people like to wear themed clothing, and t-shirts are easy to gift as they can be worn for many different occasions. This shirt by GoldyTees uses inspiration from the brand Def Leppard in their coffee-loving design that falls in line with the vintage resurgence trend. This shirt has multiple colors and sizes available.
10. Coffee storage canister
Having a proper canister for storing ground coffee is essential, as it helps keep it fresh for as long as possible. The BAYKA coffee canister is a great gift option as it not only has an air-tight seal, but it also comes with a measured scoop to ensure you have the proper amount of grounds for each brew.
11. Handheld milk frother
A milk frother can be a great addition to the kitchen as it can help take your coffee up a notch by frothing milk to make homemade lattes! The Bonsenkitchen milk frother is a portable, battery-powered device that you can bring with you to make your favorite drink on the go.
12. Coffee pod storage
If the person you’re finding a gift for is more attached to their Keurig or Nespresso machine, it might be handy to get them a pod storage drawer. It can easily fit under their machine without taking up extra space and adds a bit of decoration at the same time. Besides, who doesn’t need a bit more organization in their life?
13. Coffee scented fragrance
Do you ever notice the smell of coffee on your clothes after leaving your favorite cafe? It’s possible to create that experience with fragrance! Fresh Brewed Coffee by Demeter smells just like a fresh cup of coffee to help uplift your day.
