If you’ve been having a hard time deciding what to get for that coffee lover in your life, keep reading!
In this article, I will discuss a few unique gift ideas for coffee lovers that are easy to make or acquire. Turn the process of picking out presents into a fun adventure.
This is my favorite and least utilized coffee gift. It’s easy to get stuck into a routine, using the same tried and tested coffee creamer 99% of the time. Creating a unique creamer with a rich flavor really tells a coffee lover that you care.
The method is simple enough to get started and then you can add your own unique flair. You generally add an equal amount of milk/heavy cream with sweetened condensed milk. After that, just customize however you like. Do some experimenting to find the perfect balance for your flavor.
Custom Spiced Coffee
Much like the creamer, it’s also possible to flavor coffee yourself and make a special blend. Using whole or coarse herbs and spices, you can make gifts like pumpkin spice coffee or vanilla cocoa coffee.
Because coffee has such an overpowering flavor, you don’t have to worry about adding too much spice or herb. However, you don’t want to use too much of a fine powder because they can block water flow in the coffee maker. In addition, recommend your coffee lover to use a permanent coffee filter so the flavor doesn’t get absorbed into the paper.
One of my favorite ingredients when improving my coffee is vanilla beans from Amazon. Along with cinnamon, it creates a very aromatic brew.
Flavored Instant Coffee Gift
Instant coffee gifts a bad reputation but it can be turned into an amazing gift for coffee lovers. The portability and ease of use allow you to make some extravagant drink mixes. Take instant coffee and mix it with cocoa powder, dried milk, vanilla-infused sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt. That’s all it takes. Of course, you can come up with your own creations.
Baking with coffee is always a real treat. Not only do you get the aroma of coffee and sweets, but the combined flavors are mindblowing.
If you need a coffee gift for a die-hard coffee lover, then jewelry could be the way to go. Not only can you get unique presents like these coffee bean earrings from Amazon, but also other amazing pieces of handcrafted apparel. Coffee lovers will go nuts over a gift this extreme.
Coffee Apparel and Decor
Who doesn’t like a funny shirt? Sometimes a coffee drinker needs added humor to get through the day. Few things are better than a piece of clothing that not only makes them laugh but also the people around them. I love it when someone engages me about a piece of the outfit I’m wearing. Not only is it a great conversation starter, but it lets me talk about a subject I enjoy. This cat sweater on Amazon is the purrfect (yes, I wrote it) example. It’s really funny and attracts fellow cat or coffee lovers.
Hilarious Coffee Mug
The final recommendation might sound obvious but it’s always worth mentioning. A good coffee mug is like a diamond ring to an avid coffee drinker. From simple and durable to more fragile, yet unique, there is a sea of funny coffee mugs to choose from. Finding one that fits your giftee is of little issue. Rather, you will probably have a harder time deciding what not to get. There are typography mugs that have inspirational quotes and brilliant, heat reactive coffee mugs that can show off their favorite anime characters.
Check out this heat reactive space mug on Amazon that reveals the stars when you pour coffee in. It makes an amazing coffee gift for astronomy lovers.
The world of coffee mugs might have evolved since you last check and they are certainly worth considering.
Don’t Overthink It
Enjoying coffee is a simple pleasure and getting a gift should mimic this. You shouldn’t worry about making your gift extravagant. As this list shows, I simple 5-minute DIY creamer can be all you need. Coffee gifts should be about having fun and enjoying the craft of coffee making.
