Do you love coffee or know someone who does? We all know at least one person enjoys a cup or two a day. Whether you’re shopping for birthday or holiday gifts, this list is for the coffee lover in your life.
Note: This page contains Amazon affiliate links, which means I get a commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links at no cost to you.
I can’t have this list without coffee brand suggestions. I suggest asking whether the person you’re shopping for likes. You need to know if they prefer ground coffee or whole beans. It’s also important to know what their favorite coffee origin is: Ethiopian, Guatemalan, Colombian, etc. People like what they like.
Here are some of my favorite coffee brands that can be ordered online:
- BeanBee Coffee (review here)
- CxffeeBlack (review here)
- Black Girl Black Coffee
- Nguyen Coffee Supply – (review here); order my favorite ground coffee beans here.
- Rise Up Coffee – order my favorite blend here.
If the person you’re shopping for is interested in grinding their own coffee beans, they’ll need a coffee grinder. My mom got me a KRUPS coffee grinder for Christmas a couple of years ago, and it’s still one of my favorite items in my coffee corner. I also love that you can use it to grind spices. The exact one I have (pictured below) can be found here.
Coffee storage container
Sometimes, keeping your coffee in their respective bags gets annoying. It can be best for your space to put them in containers. To protect the coffee, you have to use an opaque or dark container. Sunlight can have a strong impact on coffee. A container I love is Veken’s coffee canister. It’s an airtight, stainless steel storage container that has a date tracker and a scoop. I got my favorite one on Amazon here.
Cold brew pitcher
The best thing about cold brew coffee is that it’s less acidic than a normal brew. People often use mason jars and use cheesecloth to strain for this method. A cold brew pitcher simplifies this process a lot. After grinding whole coffee beans, you put them in the infuser and don’t have to worry about having a multi-step process post-brew. I love the cold brew pitcher that I got for Christmas last year. Check it out on Amazon here.
Having a designated stirrer for my coffee corner has been a game changer. I got mine from Target. It can be found here: https://www.target.com/p/stainless-steel-cocktail-stirrer-spoon-gold-project-62-8482/-/A-76167312
One of my favorite ways to brew coffee is with a French press, and it’s simple. I love the Bodum Brazil French Press Coffee Maker that a friend gifted me. It’s become one of my go-to coffee tools. The exact one I have can be found here.
Frothers seemingly became popular at the beginning of the pandemic when dalgona coffee was trending. It can also be used to create a nice cold foam. I got the Cafe Casa Milk Frother months ago, and I absolutely love it. One of my favorite bloggers, Dom N’ the City, recommended it, and I’m so glad I got it. Order one from Amazon here.
I love using a moka pot to make espresso. If I had to choose, I’d pick this method over instant coffee. My sister gifted me the Bialetti Moka Express, and I love it! It’s now my favorite brewing tool.
You can never go wrong with a gift card. If you know the recipient’s favorite coffee shop, find out if they offer gift cards. A popular one is the Starbucks gift card.
You can’t go wrong with a cute or clever mug. Target, Walmart, Etsy, and Amazon are great places to look. Here are a couple of my favorite places to get mugs online:

OXO Squeeze Bottles
If the coffee lover in your life loves to make their own syrups, they need squeeze bottles like these OXO ones in their coffee space. Order them on Amazon here.
I hope that this guide has been helpful. I’ll be adding more as I think of things. If you’re a coffee person, what’s something you would love to receive as a gift? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time.
