Mmmmm… for 66% of Americans, there’s no better way to fuel their day than sipping a delicious cup of joe. Whether it’s cold brew or drip coffee, picked up from the hippest local coffee shop or a national chain, it’s hard to beat a cup of coffee for easy, tasty caffeine.
Looking for a gift for a coffee lover, unfortunately, isn’t quite as easy as picking up some bean juice on your morning commute. That’s why we’re here today! You don’t have to know all the benefits of pour over vs. cold brew, or drop $1000+ on a fancy espresso machine to get them something they’ll totally love.
We’ve pulled some of the best gifts for the coffee lover in your life, including:
But that’s enough about that – let’s get into it!
When shopping for someone who knows exactly what they want, gift cards are a great option. Despite getting a bad reputation as a lazy or thoughtless gift, studies have shown that gift cards are actually at the top of many people’s wish lists. That’s especially true with options that are as easy to use as GiftYa.
GiftYa digital gift cards can be personalized and sent in seconds, and the catalog includes thousands of local and national brands. Whether they prefer shopping small cafes or national chains, you’re sure to find something they’ll love.
Plus there are several ways to redeem – in just a few clicks, the coffee lover in your life can use their balance from the GiftYa app, connect it to a Visa or Mastercard they carry everyday anyway, cash it out to their bank account using Zelle, swap it for a physical Visa gift card, and more.
Not sure where to start? Consider a couple of these options for last minute designer gifts in our catalog:
And beyond these national options, you can also search by city or zipcode to see which of your favorite local coffee shops are currently accepting GiftYa. Be sure to check back often – we’re always adding more local and national brands!
Not feeling the digital options? You can always customize a physical Visa gift card with Gift Card Granny’s build a card feature, too. Just choose a photo for the front – like perhaps a photo of them in their natural habitat, with a coffee mug in hand? – add a personal message, and a physical card is on its way. Most custom cards print same day and ship out the next, so you’ll have your custom coffee-themed gift card in hand in notime flat.
Concerns are sometimes raised about whether coffee is sourced ethically – but when you support small businesses like Grounds & Hounds or Trash Cat Coffee, you don’t have to worry about things like that.
Beyond being organic and eco-friendly, the Sunrise Rescue Coffee Kit from Grounds & Hounds supports shelter dogs with every purchase – just like everything else they offer. This set comes with three of the brand's most popular blends, a coffee mug, and a reusable tote.
Similarly, Trash Cat Coffee has equally excellent options benefiting shelter cats.

Seattle is known for many things – rain, whales, grunge – and one of those things is coffee. Buying espresso-related gear can get expensive quickly, but this mini espresso grinder from Seattle Coffee Gear comes complete with a mini price tag.
This updated model features a sleek, modern look and scratch-resistant body, making this hand-turned espresso grinder a great addition to any coffee lover’s gadget collection.
Warming coasters are all over the place – and they happen to be the perfect gift for any coffee lover who prefers to sip and savor their beverage of choice. Whether digital or analog like this one, a mug warmer will keep their beverage toasty much longer than a normal coaster.
This mandala warming coaster from SERRV can be warmed in the oven, placed in its grass basket, and will keep their beverage nice and warm. There are also electric models available from stores like Target, which simply plug into the wall.
Change up their coffee menu with a subscription box, like the 3 Month Atlas Coffee Subscription. Each month, your coffee lover will receive an exotic, single-source coffee blend in the format of choice (whole bean, ground, Keurig, Nespresso). They’ll also get a postcard featuring the country of origin and information on the tasting profile and country of origin.
Freshness guaranteed! This is the gift that gives them adventure in a cup.
Books and coffee go together like, well… books and coffee. So it’s no wonder many Barnes & Noble locations have a cozy cafe right in the store.
Barnes & Noble membership has many benefits – like 10% off almost everything in the store, a free tote bag, and free shipping with no minimum online. But the perk that your coffee lover will be most excited about? They get a free upgrade to the next size when making drink purchases in the Barnes & Noble Cafe for the whole year long.
GiftYa Recommends: Complete the gift when you send a Barnes & Noble gift card – so they can grab a book and read in the cafe today!
Even if they already have a cold brew maker, they certainly don’t have one like this. In a stunning retro design, this Retro Ice Cold Brew Dripping Coffee set makes a maximum of 600 ml of coffee – the perfect amount for 5-8 servings.
Thanks to the unique retro design, this coffee maker is a little bit higher in price point – this model will run you about $95 from Nispira. However, we think any coffee lover would be happy to have it, making it well worth the cost!
Your favorite coffee lover doesn’t have to shell out $6 every time they want a cold foam drink. It is surprisingly easy to make copycat versions of all their favorite Starbucks beverages right from the comfort at home… if they have the right tools.
This Hot and Cold Frother from Keurig is exactly what they need to take their home setup to the next level.
As a coffee lover, mugs are a necessity. It doesn’t matter if they prefer sleek minimalist mugs or fun folks mugs, this one is sure to be a hit. Bonus points if you fill it with some coffee pods, tea bags, and other small gifts.
If you’re looking for something fun, Natural Life has several collections of unique coffee mugs like the Folk Art Coffee Mug collection this Francis The Fox mug comes from.
Not quite the right vibe? You can always find mugs that make great gifts on eBay or Etsy. From a superhero coffee mug made from real comic book strips to an aesthetic beachy ceramic mug, from stained glass designs to mugs with a personalized figurine of their dog, you’re sure to find something they love.
If you know your way around a kitchen, you probably know the name Le Creuset. Whether it's the dutch oven of your dreams or a cast iron skillet, chances are a Le Creuset item is somewhere on your wishlist. For the coffee lover in your life, it’s surely the pour over coffee cone.
The individually sand-molded stoneware is finished with the company’s iconic glaze – here, shown in French Grey. With plenty of room to brew coffee for a cup or a crowd, this vintage design is surely to become one of your favorite coffee lover’s favorite tools.
