19 gifts for the coffee lover in your life
What’s your coffee fantasy? Your coziest, most tumblr-worthy caffeine experience. I’m talking big white mug and polished fingernails. Deep cherry red blanket, couch, and an issue of the latest New Yorker while it snows outside. Sitting out on your porch with your laptop open, Bright Eyes playing. Swoon. Coffee is worthy of its internet-wide obsession, after all. It wakes us up and makes us feel smarter, faster, more capable. No matter how you like to dress coffee up (with or without sugar, half-and-half, almond milk, black, etc.), nothing compares to it. And that’s why we have a gift guide dedicated to coffee. You are welcome.
You probably know at least one person in your life who can’t do life without at least one or two cups of coffee in the morning. So, let’s make holiday gift-giving a LITTLE easier, and take advantage of their caffeine habit. There are so many cute, useful products either for your coffee, made with coffee, or crafted to show just how much you love coffee.
From a mug that has the technology to make sure your java is the perfect temperature, to coffee-infused soap, to candles, to just a really, really good coffee maker, this here is your ultimate guide to getting the coffee lover in your life some sweet presents.
1 Ember Ceramic Mug, Ember, $79.95
No more mug warmers! This mug has a warmer BUILT IN and it will keep your coffee at the perfect temperature, because, well, science. Since every coffee lover and their girlfriend is ordering the Ember mug, it’s going to take at least six days to get to you. So order it RIGHTNOW, but if you want it faster, go to a Starbucks for purchase.
2 Frank’s Original Coffee Body Scrub, Frank’s, $16.95
HG Beauty Editor Marie hooked it up for me awhile back, giving me a big bag of Frank Body coffee scrub, and I use it whenever I want my skin to feel softer and tighter. Because that’s what scrubs made with real coffee grounds do! Bonus: Your whole body will smell like a latte after.
