Gifts For Espresso Lovers

Espresso and all the many, many drinks made from it (like latte, cappuccino, and flat white) are some of the most popular options at home and in coffee shops around the world. But it’s also where the nerdiest coffee connoisseurs hang out as you can geek out over every little detail to get that *perfect* shot. Whether you have a full-blown espresso obsessor on your hands or just a casual drinker, these are the top gifts to look out for:

DeLonghi Stilosa making an espresso

DeLonghi Stilosa

Price: $$$
Our Rating: 8/10

If the coffee snob in your life is looking to get into making espresso-based drinks at home, then a quality espresso machine is sure to please.

Particularly one that doesn’t blow your budget too.

The De’Longhi Stilosa is a good option for anyone looking to take the first step. It brews good espresso and can create quality microfoam for milky drinks too.

Don’t get us wrong, it’s missing out on some of the fancy features that come with more expensive machines. But it’s also under $100, making it a perfect coffee gift for newbie home espresso brewers.

De’Longhi espresso machines are renowned for being reliable with some of the best build quality you can find. So this is a gift that will bring joy for years to come.

Breville Bambino Plus

Breville Bambino Plus

Price: $$$$$
Our Rating: 8.5/10

The Bambino Plus falls at the top end of what I’d consider a reasonable ‘gift giving budget’. So this is The One if you’re looking to really WOW your loved one, not so much for Kevin in accounts that you selected in the office Secret Santa.

Breville’s espresso machines are all made to a really high standard. Their ‘4 Keys Formula’ makes it possible for espresso lovers to pull really high-quality shots and manually steam their milk with perfect microfoam.

But the milk wand is also automated. Additionally, the Bambino Plus can handle pre-ground coffee just as well as fresh ground for those who prefer an easier coffee life.

P.S. If you’re looking for something a little more budget-friendly, see how the Bambino Plus compares to the Bambino – its baby sibling.

Flair Classic manual espresso maker with included parts laid out

Flair Classic with Pressure Kit

Price: $$$$$
Our Rating: 7/10

This is one for the serious espresso nerd in your life.

The Flair Classic is a manual espresso maker, giving the user total control over every single element. From water temperature, to grind, to tamping, to manually pulling the shot. Everything.

So, there’s a hefty learning curve here. But if you know someone who makes your eyes glaze over when they start speaking coffee nerd, this is for them.

We recommend the Classic with Pressure Kit as a good coffee gift set. It’s almost impossible to get the perfect extraction without the pressure gauge.

As an added bonus, it comes with a hard case which makes it (semi-)portable too.

Normcore V4 Tamper on wooden table

Normcore V4 Tamper

Price: $$
Our Rating: 9.5/10

In the world of espresso accessories, Normcore is a big name. They make a range of quality accessories for affordable prices that will please even the most die-hard coffee snob.

The V4 tamper is probably my favorite product that they make. Only probably though – it’s a tough choice.

It’s spring-loaded which makes tamping coffee grounds a breeze though it takes a little getting used to. I also love the ergonomic handle.

For me, this sleek tamper is a non-negotiable part of my espresso setup. Just check what machine they use so you can get the right size for their portafilter.

Box of 6 handmade ceramic espresso mugs with wooden handles (can also be used as Japanese tea cups)

Handmade Espresso Cups

Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

Beautiful espresso cups can be as ornamental as they are functional.

These handmade ceramic cups look like a piece of art that somehow makes espresso taste better (#science)

If buying something related to the making of coffee scares you, then some beautiful cups are a safe bet. At 3oz, they are the perfect size for a double espresso. Plus, the ceramic is a good heat insulator.

Just be sure to let the recipient know they need to be hand washed as they’re not dishwasher safe.

Gift-Worthy Coffee Makers

Espresso is just one style of coffee. So if the coffee obsessive in your life prefers a different brewing method (or likes to have the choice) then any of this coffee brewing gear will hit the spot:

Nguyen Phin Kit (unique gift set with traditional phin coffee dripper and a bag of coffee)

Phin Kit (Brewer + Coffee)

Price: $
Our Rating: 9/10

Vietnam might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of great coffee. But it should be!

A phin is a traditional Vietnamese coffee dripper. Whilst commonplace in Vietnamese households, coffee connoisseurs outside the country rarely have one (or have even come across them). So you’ll get brownie points for thinking outside the box.

This gift set includes a stainless steel phin that fits on most mugs and a bag of coffee.

You can choose between Moxy (smooth and bright), Truegit (intense and highly caffeinated), or Loyalty (bold but subtly fruity).

We recommend Loyalty – it’s their bestseller for a reason (and a firm favorite in our household!)

Bialetti Moka Express sitting on a wooden table

Bialetti Moka Pot

Price: $$
Our Rating: 8/10

Give the gift of coffee history.

The Bialetti Moka Express is a classic; an icon. It was one of the first pressure coffee makers ever made back in Italy in the 1930s and has remained a coffee institution ever since.

Moka pot coffee brewing is simple and produces rich, syrupy coffee. All whilst being virtually indestructible so will last for years and years.

This makes it great to use at home or camping – anywhere that has access to a heat source.

Heck, we’ve even seen the Moka pot used as decoration. So it’s not just a practical present!

The intense, slightly bitter coffee isn’t for everyone. So if your coffee-obsessed friend likes to add a lot of sugar and syrups to their coffee, this isn’t the ideal present for them. But it’s cheap, easy to use, and it’s nice to own a coffee legend too.

Chemex coffee maker filled with freshly brewed coffee


Price: $$
Our Rating: 9/10

Chemex might just make the most beautiful coffee makers out there.

Pour over is another classic coffee brewing method. And it’s one that any self-respecting coffee snob will love. So, if your coffee loving friend doesn’t own a Chemex, this gift will be doing them a favor.

Compared to the Hario V60, Chemex is relatively easy to use. It brews bright, clear, and delicious coffee so, if you’re lucky, they might brew you a cup too! If it’s their first time, you can always subtly direct them to our Chemex coffee ratio calculator to make sure they nail it.

Oh and did we mention just how affordable the Chemex is? It’s an upscale coffee gift without the upscale price tag.

Half full Hario Mizudashi beside its box and a glass of cold brew coffee

Hario Mizudashi (Cold Brew Coffee Maker)

Price: $
Our Rating: 8.5/10

No matter whether you’re buying a coffee gift for an anniversary, birthday, or Christmas, it’s always the right time to drink cold brewed, ice-cold coffee.

The flavor of cold brew is very different from other coffee brew methods. It’s a much more intense, sweet style that can be diluted with water or mixed with milk, creamer, sugar, or syrup to taste.

Anyone who spends a fortune on iced coffee in the summer months is bound to adore being able to make it at home. And, for us, the Mizudashi is the best value option out there:

It’s simple to use, compact enough to tuck into the fridge, easy to clean, and it brews a diluted cold brew that can be drunk as is (not a concentrate like some of its competitors).

Pouring water into a Hario V60 (a great gift for coffee snobs)

Hario V60

Price: $
Our Rating: 9.5/10

Simple, but perfectly formed.

The Hario V60 is arguably the best coffee dripper for getting the most flavor from the coffee beans (see our full review for more details).

It’s also one of the cheapest. So you’re getting a whole lot of value in a cone-shaped package.

Compared to other methods, the Hario V60 recipe is a lot more involved. So, if your coffee-loving friend hasn’t used one before, it will take some practice to perfect. But the aromas of a perfectly brewed pour over can’t be beaten.

Nor can the flavor. If your favorite coffee snob doesn’t already have one, you’ll be the flavor of the month when they open up this gift!

Ibrik (Turkish coffee maker) sitting on a board beside a cup of coffee and Turkish delight


Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

Throwback coffee maker from the origins of our favorite beverage. Ibriks (aka cezve) are still used in Turkey and across the Middle East to make delicious coffee.

These beautiful and easy-to-use little brewing pots are also great value for money.

Maybe a nice change up for a coffee-loving friend for date night. At the absolute worst, they make nice kitchen ornaments – we always have ours on display.

They come in various sizes so they can sip kahve for one, or make some for everyone.

Capresso Mini Drip - Front View

Capresso 5-Cup Mini Drip

Price: $$
Our Rating: 8.5/10

Not all coffee lovers want fancy brewing systems. Sometimes they just want reliable, classic drip coffee.

That’s where the Capresso Mini Drip comes in.

It’s the perfect option for someone who needs a couple of mugs of great coffee without any hassle. It’s simple to use, reliable, and brews a great-tasting cup of coffee which is why it’s our favorite 5-cup coffee maker.

Sometimes it’s better not to overthink gifts.

coffee grinder icon

Give the Gift of Freshly Ground Coffee

Using freshly ground coffee over even the best quality pre-ground will instantly take any drink from a 0 to a 10. But not all coffee grinders are made equal. So we’ve picked out 3 of our favorite crowd pleasers at 3 very different price points.

Side view of 1zpresso J max manual coffee grinder

1Zpresso J Max

Price: $$$$
Our Rating: 9.5/10

When it comes to manual coffee grinding, nothing performs as well as the 1Zpresso J-Max.

Hands down, this is our favorite manual grinder. (Compare it to all our best manual coffee grinder reviews to see why).

The J-Max looks great and performs ridiculously well. With 8.8 microns between each step and over 350 steps, the perfect grind size is achievable for all brewing methods. It’s the kind of precision that gets coffee nerds all hot under the collar.

(Psst… You can read our full review for more details).

The incredible precision and consistency across the full range of grind sizes make this our go-to grinder for espresso and pour over alike.

Hand holding the Javapresse manual coffee grinder over a wooden table


Price: $$
Our Rating: 8.5/10

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly grinder, the JavaPresse is a great option.

Whilst it doesn’t have the precision of the pricier grinders, it’s a great first step for anyone looking to up their home coffee game by grinding fresh.

It’s easy to use and offers tremendous value for money by performing well beyond its price tag.

It retails at around $45 and, if that price wasn’t enticing enough, you can regularly pick it up at a discounted bargain price. Great for those organized folks who keep a gifting drawer ‘just in case’ (I’m looking at you, Mom).

Freshly grinding coffee beans is the easiest way to improve the quality of coffee at home. So this is an easy-win coffee gift for the coffee lover in your life.

Breville Smart Grinder Pro front and side view

Breville Smart Grinder Pro

Price: $$$$
Our Rating: 9/10

This is one for someone who can’t or doesn’t want to manually grind their beans. And it also won’t cost you the earth (compared to other grinders anyway).

The Breville Smart Grinder Pro not only grinds coffee beans (excellently, I might add) but also doses the ground coffee. This means no weighing and no wastage.

It’s more suited to espresso grinding, so it depends on the preferred type of coffee maker your friend uses. But if it’s espresso, the Smart Grinder Pro can help a budding barista get a cafe-quality shot at home with ease.

coffee accessories icon

Crowd Pleasing Coffee Accessories

No look is complete without accessories. And the same is true of a good home coffee setup. From stocking filler sized gifts to the more upscale, there’s something to suit all gift givers here:

Jura cup warmer with bottom drawer open

Jura Cup Warmer

Price: $$$$$
Our Rating: 7/10

Pouring freshly brewed coffee at the perfect temperature into cold cups should be a crime. But you can ensure the coffee connoisseur in your life is not a criminal with Jura’s cup warmer.

Coffee cups are kept at the perfect temperature ensuring the best possible coffee experience just when you need it.

As with all things Jura touch, the cup warmer looks great and works great, but comes with a luxury price tag.

So, this is a little “out of the box” – one of the best coffee gifts for someone who has everything (and is a nightmare to buy for).

It’s a bit like heated car seats. Do you need them? No. But would it make your day better? Heck yeah.

Breville Milk Cafe

Breville Milk Cafe

Price: $$$$
Our Rating: 8/10

Next up we have a great present for someone who likes frothed milk with their coffee but doesn’t own or want an espresso machine.

The Breville Milk Cafe will deliver perfectly frothed milk of any type – even for iced coffees.

Our favorite thing about all Breville machines is that they’re easy to program and use. There is a dial on the front to select the desired temperature and it does the rest.

Goodbye, learning how to master a manual milk wand. Instead, you can give the gift of barista-quality milk foam.

Prefer to buy direct? Shop with Breville

Fellow Stagg EKG gooseneck kettle

Stagg Gooseneck Kettle

Price: $$$$
Our Rating: 9.5/10

Do you know a coffee fanatic who loves pour over but uses a regular kettle? First up, they need to step up their coffee snobbery game. And you can help by gifting them the best gooseneck kettle.

The Fellow Stagg Gooseneck makes pour over (or any manual coffee brewing) a breeze with its accurate temperature settings.

Plus, it also looks great, which is always nice.

Having a special kettle just for coffee may seem excessive, but perfection demands such things.

Ember Temperature Controlled Smart Mug

Ember Smart Mug

Price: $$$$
Our Rating: 8/10

I’ll be honest, when I first saw the price of the Ember Smart Mug, I vomited a little in my mouth. Being a coffee snob goes hand in hand with paying more than most for some equipment. But even still, this is a mug.

However, I’m so happy that I gave it a chance. After babysitting for a friend and returning to my coffee 40 minutes later with it still being the perfect temperature, I was sold!

Anyone who regularly brews a great coffee and then gets distracted will think this is a bargain. (Or the greatest gift they’ve ever received.)

Set the perfect temperature on the app and the Smart Mug will keep it at that temperature. No more cold coffee.

It has an 80-minute battery life, or you can use it plugged in for indefinite coffee warming.

Timemore Black Mirror electronic coffee scale

Timemore Black Mirror Scale

Price: $$
Our Rating: 8/10

Us coffee nerds are a precise bunch who love to obsess over every minute detail of the brewing process. And it’s impossible to do that without an accurate, super fast scale.

The Timemore Black Mirror is exactly that.

It has a built-in timer, is fast, and it’s accurate. Oh, and it’s very affordable too.

This makes it the ideal present for fanatics of espresso, AeroPress, and pour over alike.

budget-friendly gifts icon

Gifts for Coffee Lovers Under $25

A low budget doesn’t have to mean half-hearted gifts. Here we have some more coffee gift ideas that are more friendly on the bank balance:

Whiskey stones set (8 x metal whiskey rocks with tongs)

Whiskey Stones

Price: $
Our Rating: 10/10

I know what you’re thinking – what’s whiskey got to do with anything? And, yes, this might be the most unique coffee gift idea but hear us out…

We love iced coffee. We hate diluted coffee. The answer? Whiskey stones.

Re-usable ice cubes completely change the game when it comes to making iced coffee at home. There’s no need to calculate how much water will melt and dilute the delicious coffee.

As well as being very cheap, whiskey stones can obviously be used for things other than coffee, like wine or even whiskey! A great simple gift.

As far as we’re concerned this is the best of the best coffee snob gifts out there. Even if they do look at you a little strangely at first.

Silver coffee scoop attached to bag of beans via crocodile clip

Coffee Scoop with Clip

Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

Keep it simple with a set of 3 coffee scoops with a clip to attach it to the bag.

The second I put something down it is instantly lost. I call it an adorable quirk, others (like my wife) would call it downright annoying. So, if you know a coffee lover just like me, clipping the coffee scoop straight onto the bag increases the likelihood of it not going missing.

So really this is two gifts for the (very low) price of one – a handy spoon for coffee and the key to saving someone’s marriage.

It’s also possible to get personalized scoops for a more special touch. But they will also push up the bargain price.

Bike/ Stroller/ Wheelchair clip-on coffee cup and phone holder

Bicycle Coffee Cup Holder

Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

Getting exercise? Check.

Saving the environment? Check.

Keeping caffeine levels topped up? Check, check, check.

Cycling to work shouldn’t preclude anyone from enjoying fresh coffee during the commute.

This handy coffee cup holder simply clips onto the handlebars so caffeine is always at hand. As an added bonus, there’s also a slot for a phone so the clean lines of the lycra outfit aren’t disturbed.

For the non-cyclers, the clip is pretty versatile and will work on a stroller, wheelchair, walker, or scooter.

Book "How to Make the Best Coffee at Home" by James Hoffmann

“How To Make The Best Coffee At Home” by James Hoffmann

Price: $
Our Rating: 9/10

James Hoffman is something of a coffee legend.

He’s an English barista, YouTuber, entrepreneur, coffee consultant, and best-selling author of “The World Atlas of Coffee”. Plus, an all-around inspiration to everyone who loves their coffee.

With his latest book, he’s made brewing great coffee at home easier to understand and achieve. He’s also done it in a way that’s easy for anyone to follow along.

This is a great read for any coffee lover. Even those with years of experience will find it enjoyable.

Trees Knees Coffee Maple - maple syrup infused with Stumptown coffee

Trees Knees Coffee-Infused Maple Syrup

Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

This is one for the foodies.

It’s craft maple syrup from the Catskill Mountain area of New York infused with Stumptown Coffee Roaster’s Hair Blender Blend.

And it’s honestly delicious. It takes the sweet notes from the syrup and marries them with the richness of the coffee.

The result is a unique flavor with hints of toffee and dark chocolate.

I’m a big fan of French toast with bacon and lashings of this syrup. But it also goes well with sweet potatoes, ice cream, or pancakes.

Box of dark chocolate covered espresso beans from Trader Joe's

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Price: $
Our Rating: 7.5/10

Take tasty espresso beans. Add chocolate. And you have the most moreish snack ever created.

We love to eat these and my Dad is absolutely obsessed with them too. Chocolate and roasted coffee beans are just such a great combo.

These are seriously grown-up sweets that will make anyone feel a little more sophisticated. Oh, and they’re very, very addictive.

If you’re gift shopping around Christmas time, they make an excellent stocking filler.

Monthly Coffee Subscription Gift

A selection of top-quality coffee beans curated and delivered directly every month. Could there be a more perfect gift for coffee snobs?

Bean Box Sampler Coffee Box

Bean Box Coffee Sampler

Price: $$$
Our Rating: 9/10

Bean Box are seasoned pros when it comes to monthly coffee subscription gifts. It’s their bread and butter.

Hands down, one of our favorite coffee lover gifts is their sampler subscription box.

All you need to do is select the preferred coffee roast level, whether you want whole beans or ground, and how long you want to subscribe for (1, 3, 6, or 12 months.) Then Bean Box takes care of the rest.

Every month, four expertly curated coffees will turn up (1. oz each) alongside tasting notes and brewing guides.

As gifts for coffee snobs go, this is a knock-out. It offers great diversity to experience the nuance in the world’s biggest coffee regions.

Bag of Sumatra Queen Ketiara coffee beans from Equator Coffees in front of Breville espresso machine

Equator Coffees Gift Subscription

Price: $$
Our Rating: 9/10

3 amazing coffees delivered to their door each month, for 3 months. Umm, yes please!

Equator Coffees have some of the best, most interesting, and most ethically sourced coffee of any roaster. Which is why we love them.

With this gift subscription, you can choose from one of 3 sets – blends, for espresso, or single-origins. (We recommend the single origins). The amazing coffee beans will then be delivered to your favorite coffee lover for 3 months.

A great option for someone who already has all the tools they need.

Trade Coffee subscription service, delivery bag

Trade Coffee – Gift

Price: $$$
Our Rating: 9.5/10

Variety is the spice of life and Trade Coffee definitely has variety.

There are over 450 curated coffees to suit all tastes. So a Trade Coffee subscription can have the coffee lover in your life discovering new and exciting coffees.

They also take away all the guesswork. All you have to do is choose how many bags you want to gift them (3, 6, 12, or 24). Then decide if you want Trade to email them now, in the future, or not at all (like if you want to print or write something in a card instead.)

Then when your friend is ready, they enter their gift code and take a short quiz on their coffee preferences. Trade will get to work personally selecting the best beans to suit.

Probably the widest range of unique coffees you can find from any subscription service. This truly is the perfect gift for the adventurous coffee drinker in your life.

Gifts for Coffee Lovers Who Love to Travel

Life on the road shouldn’t mean bad service station coffee. Ensure your coffee obsessed friend doesn’t return decaffeinated with one of these great gifts:

The Wacaco Nanopresso takes the top spot for Overall Best Portable Espresso Machine

Wacaco Nanopresso

Price: $$
Our Rating: 8/10

Without a doubt, Wacaco makes the best portable espresso machines currently on the market. The Nanopresso is the most accessible and forgiving of their top models, making it a great gift.

The biggest complaint of anyone who travels a lot is usually the variable coffee quality on the road. But with this gift, you no longer have to listen to them complain!

It is small, lightweight, and easy to use – perfect for throwing in a purse, backpack, or suitcase. Plus, it comes in a wide range of fun colors too.

Depending on how generous you’re feeling, there are also add-ons for using Nespresso pods rather than ground coffee (NS Adapter) or for making double espressos (Barista Kit). Or, you can opt for the standalone Nanopresso with a protective travel case. Basically – make your own coffee gift set to suit.

Overall this is one of our favorite coffee lover gift ideas as it has guaranteed success written all over it (see our full review for more details).

AeroPress with accessories to the side


Price: $$
Our Rating: 8/10

Despite only being 18 years old, the AeroPress is something of a coffee institution.

It’s a simple design that can be used at home or while traveling. It’s also cheap, easy to use, and loved by coffee fanatics the world over. We’d call that a triple threat when browsing coffee snob gifts.

The flavor of coffee brewed is some of the best out there. The only problem is whether your coffee-obsessed friend already has one.

For the ultimate gift, pair the AeroPress with a Porlex Mini – it fits inside the chamber when packed away so it’s a pretty perfect coffee setup.

Prefer to buy direct? Shop with AeroPress

Stanley Travel Coffee Press, parts laid out on table

Stanley Travel Press

Price: $$
Our Rating: 8.5/10

French Press is one of the most classic brewing methods. Whilst we can’t transport you to the streets of Paris, we can offer the next best thing:

Delicious French press coffee anywhere.

The traveling French Press combines a quality coffee brewer with a thermos travel mug.

The Stanley Travel Press keeps the grounds and brewed coffee separate, so no over-extracted bitter brews. It’ll also keep the coffee hot for 4 hours – perfect for camping, hiking, or commuting.

So, you’re not only gifting a classic brewing method but also the perfect travel coffee thermos.

Collapsible pour over coffee maker being used whilst camping

Collapsible Pour Over

Price: $
Our Rating: 7.5/10

Another great gift for coffee snobs who spend their life on the road, is the gift of making pour over anywhere.

This collapsible pour over coffee dripper is ridiculously space-conscious whilst still capable of producing a great-tasting cup of joe.

The silicone design folds down flat so it can fit into even the smallest of bags. And the bright color helps it not to get lost amidst the packing chaos.

Yes, paper filters need to be bought separately and silicone isn’t the greatest material. But as a trade-off between subpar high street coffee chains or self-brewed pour over, the latter wins out every time.

Yeti Rambler 20oz Travel Mug held up towards tent

Yeti Rambler Travel Mug

Price: $$
Our Rating: 9/10

Daily commute, walking the dog, standing on the soccer sidelines. Everyone’s days just seem to get busier and busier. So why should even one minute of it be enjoyed without coffee?

A good quality thermos will keep your coffee at the perfect temperature so you can enjoy it hours after brewing – either hot or iced cold coffee. And that’s exactly what the Yeti Rambler Travel Mug does.

When it comes to coffee, I think the Rambler is better than the Stanley Quencher (don’t come for me!) The 20 fl oz capacity is better for large coffee drinks but the smallest Stanley is 30 fl oz – great for cold water but way too much for coffee.

For me, this is the perfect travel coffee thermos. It has a good solid handle (that works for righties and lefties) and a spillproof lid. Plus it’s easy to drink from – strangely not a given when buying a travel cup.

This is the perfect solution for life on the go. The coffee can even be made before bed and it will still be warm when stepping out the door.

Stojo Collpaisble Travel Cup

STOJO Collapsible Travel Cup

Price: $
Our Rating: 8/10

If you’re shopping for someone who loves camping or traveling then these handy foldable cups are perfect.

The space-saving design is great for backpackers as the cups fold down flat. Then, when the need for caffeine hits, they easily pop back out.

What sets STOJO’s cups apart from the competition is the reinforced middle section that stops the cup from collapsing or falling over with liquid inside. Plus the cups come in a dizzying array of colors.

If the travel cup is likely to be used whilst driving, warn your gift recipient to pop the lid before they set off as it’s a little fiddly.

But for less than the price of 3 high-street coffees, I was seriously impressed with this cup’s heat retention.

Waka Coffee - Quality freeze-dried instant coffee

Waka Freeze Dried Instant Coffee

Price: $
Our Rating: 6.5/10

It’s not often you see us waxing lyrical about instant coffee. So you know this stuff has to be worth it.

There are some occasions, especially whilst traveling, where instant coffee is just an inescapable evil. We get it.

So, for those occasions, Waka Coffee is the best option:

It’s probably the best instant coffee out there and makes a great gift for someone who loves their coffee but travels only every so often so doesn’t want a suitcase full of different coffee brewing equipment.

This could be the difference between burning their stomach lining on the nasty hotel breakfast coffee, or a great start to the day.

Quirky coffee gift mug with lego

Lego Coffee Mug

Price: $
Our Rating: 7/10

We all know someone who’s hard to buy for. Maybe it’s a distant relative or maybe you need inspiration for a colleague’s Secret Santa gift. Either way, is anyone ever too old to enjoy Lego?

(Although, for the avoidance of doubt, this is not technically Lego. It’s build-on-brick ‘cos protected names and all that.)

No matter who you’re shopping for, we guarantee at least 10 minutes of entertainment from this quirky coffee gift idea.

Latte Art coffee earrings - a unique gift for coffee snobs

Latte Art Earrings

Price: $
Our Rating: 7/10

Know someone who likes to wear their coffee love on their sleeve. Well, how about their ears?

Latte art earrings are a really cute accessory for any coffee obsessive.

Just don’t make the mistake I did and make sure they have their ears pierced before you wrap them up!

Chair upholstered with jute coffee bean sacks - a unique coffee gift

Jute Burlap Coffee Bean Sacks

Price: $
Our Rating: 6.5/10

Ok, this might be a little random but is definitely one of the most unique coffee gifts you can give.

With a little imagination and a tiny bit of DIY crafting, what’s a discarded coffee bean sack to one person is a quirky bit of decor to another.

I’ve seen them used as chair coverings, table runners, or simply popped onto the wall as “industrial chic” artwork.

Pretty niche as gifting goes, but fun all the same.

Novelty coffee socks make a perfect gift. They say "If you can read this, bring me some coffee"

Novelty Socks

Price: $
Our Rating: 6.5/10


Is it even Christmas if there’s not a pair of socks under the tree? My mother-in-law has been replenishing my sock collection every year for almost a decade now. But these have to be my favorite..

Ditch the boring monochrome socks and put a smile on someone’s face with a toe-warming, funny gift.
