Whether it be for their birthday, Mother’s/Father’s Day or just as a bit of a treat (‘cos everybody loves an unexpected treat), finding a gift which taps into somebody’s passions and tastes means they will be super happy and you will win some brownie points.
You can, of course, get them a coffee subscription box, or a coffee making gadget such as a new pod machine or a flask they can take on-the-go to stop them complaining about the price of their morning coffee shop visit.
But if you want to be a tad more adventurous, there is plenty of options to go all out. Or why not try our Christmas Coffee Gift Guide for something a bit more festive?
Here are dozens of gift ideas for any coffee connoisseurs in your life:
FOOD AND DRINK EXTRAS
Choco Coffee Hamper by Whittard
Christmas Hampers are a tradition for food and drinks lovers in the festive season, but make it coffee and chocolate themed to tap in to their two passions. You get the fabulous Bialetti Moka Pot with this one, so it is great for arty coffee folk.
Coffee Lovers Taster Gift Set by Two Chimps Coffee
6 single-origin speciality coffees for them to enjoy, as well as a Two Chimps Coffee Tin and Magnet set too as a little extra. You can choose the grind size to suit their preferred method.
They love their coffee strong with a splash of milk and half a sugar. But they also love the flavoured coffees which their local coffee shop prepares, and it would make their dreams come true if they could have it whenever they wanted. Here is the perfect selection pack.

Their worst fear is realising they have run out of coffee and biccies when they’ve just popped the kettle on. Their entire household lives in fear of their reaction. But with this lifesaver, they just have to break the seal and peace can be resumed.
Coffees of the World Gift Set by Whittard
You feel that, even though they are perfectly happy with their instant cup of Nescafè Gold every day, they may like to branch out every so often. This pack of Whittard’s nine most popular blends will take them on a voyage.
They’re not fussed about the fancy stuff. “Just give me a Kit Kat and an instant brew!” they say, as you place a vacuum coffee and expensive shortbread down in front of them. This box will make them happy as Larry.
Their espresso machine is prized. Pride of place in the kitchen and they can’t wait to turn it on when you visit them. So you’re going to need something to drink it out of.
“You May Speak Now” Ceramic Mug by Twisted Envy
You have a particular colleague who nobody dares even approaching before 10 am when their first coffee has all been consumed. This mug is the perfect nod towards their slight caffeine reliance, albeit non-subtle so make sure you’re both on good terms.
They love a good glass of prosecco even more than they love their coffee. This cup will tide them over until a suitable time of day is reached to crack out the bubbly.
STATIONERY AND BOOKS
Coffee, Teach, Coffee, Repeat Teacher Bag by Rock On Ruby
We assume that looking after 30+ kids all day every day and drinking coffee goes hand in hand, so this is a very topical pencil case/bits and bobs bag for the teacher in your life who runs on coffee.
Personalised Coffee Bean Mouse Mat by Andrea Fays
The fact that Sheila* comes alive after that first sip of coffee, like a creature out of hibernation, is the joke of the office. This mat will remind the office coffee maker that she needs to be fueled up throughout the day.
(*personalise name on mat as appropriate).
“The World Atlas of Coffee” by James Hoffmann
Coffee is not just a good drink; it is also fascinating to learn about. If your coffee fan fancies themselves as a bit of an expert, then this book will help them polish up their knowledge.
“Coffee Art: Creative Coffee Designs for the Home Barista” by Dhan Tamang
They never stop talking about their new bean-to-cup machine complete with milk frother which will allow them to make every variety of coffee known to man at the touch of two buttons, but their coffee art is mediocre at best. This can guide them to polish up their skills.
“The Art & Craft of Coffee Cocktails” by Jason Clark
You know that they always order an Espresso Martini, but when they try to recreate it at home, it doesn’t quite go to plan. Or maybe they’ve always wanted to try a Death By Caffeine cocktail but can’t find one which serves it anywhere. This book will be an education.
Solid Oak Personalised Coffee Scoop by MijMoj Design
The coffee lover in your life probably gets through an awful lot of the stuff every week. This little device will help them measure out the perfect amount while keeping the contents of the bag fresh until it’s all gone.
Did you know the smell of coffee alone can have a positive effect on a person’s mental stimulation and can combat nausea? This candle is perfect for that person who finds the aroma just as important as the liquid. And it is large so should last for-ev-er.
‘I’ll Start Working When My Coffee Does’ Wooden Engraved Coaster
They drink coffee so much that there is a coaster permanently out of the stack on the coffee table, but those boring ones don’t let everyone else in the household know to leave the person in peace until they’re finished. This one does.
Brew time is sacred, as is having it at their perfect seat. Even the cat/dog knows to scarper when the kettle is flicked on. This cushion cover will ensure that no guests mistakenly steal their favourite coffee-drinking spots ever again.
Only the best coffee storage container will do for them. One which feels all gadget-y to keep their coffee at its peak. A canister with a freshness valve which vents out harmful carbon dioxide but prevents oxygen getting in. Frustratingly, they haven’t found it yet. But you now have.
BEAUTY & FASHION
They love the smell of coffee in the morning. Now they can run a bath at night and relive it all over again. Plus it is vegan which may tick another box.
Last but not least, for something very very different, a coffee-related perfume will probably do the trick. It mostly smells like bitter orange and bergamot, subtly blended with magnolia and Damascus rose. The coffee just adds character.
Coffee doesn’t just have a positive effect on mental stimulation. It’s rich in antioxidants, so a good anti-inflammatory, and caffeine draws out excessive moisture to make skin feel smoother and firmer. They will love it so much that they won’t even think to take it the wrong way.
For anyone looking to take their household by surprise and come bouncing down the stairs in the morning after a shower before they’ve even had their fuel. Miracles can happen.
They can’t be drinking coffee every second of the day as much as they’d love to, but for those in between times they can use this lip balm and it could trick their mind into believing they are. It is also vegan, organic and made of completely raw ingredients. And stocking filler size. Hurrah!
