There are worse things to be addicted to than coffee. The delicious drink has been enjoyed for thousands of years and offers many health benefits. If your loved ones are coffee addicts, then choosing a gift for them won’t be difficult. The coffee industry is huge, and as one might expect, there are a lot of different things that you can get from a coffee addict.
In this article, we will explain nine of the best things that you can get for the coffee addicts in your life.
Easy Serve Espresso Pods
Easy serve espresso pods (ESE pods) are growing in popularity, mainly due to their convenience. Like tea, ESE coffee pods come in small bags. You simply drop them into a pot of hot water, and voilà. Making espressos without these bags can be very inconvenient, especially for working professionals constantly on the move. These small, handy bags make brewing espressos much easier. In addition, it can save your loved one a lot of money. When one can’t make espresso at home, one naturally turns to the local coffee shop. Coffee shops charge a fortune for espressos.
Reusable Coffee Cups
Plastic disposable coffee cups are bad for the environment; paper cups are a waste of paper. If your loved one is constantly on the move, however, then they need some kind of cup, and many times a flask just won’t cut it. If you want to get your loved ones a gift that they are guaranteed to enjoy, then get them a reusable coffee cup. These cups are dishwasher safe and environmentally friendly, often made from metals or recycled plastics. Reusable coffee cups are also very affordable, so they make for a great gift if you are on a budget.
There are myriad coffee products infused with essential oils available online. If your loved one is a coffee lover, why not get them one of these products? Try to find out what flavours they enjoy most, then search for coffee infusions featuring these flavours. For example, if your loved one likes vanilla, then find a coffee bean infused with vanilla. Coffee infusions are cheap, easy to find, and are a sure-fire way to impress your loved one. Make sure to research the product before you buy it, so you can ensure that the infusion has taken place naturally.
Most coffee drinkers also enjoy consuming coffee-based desserts, and syrups. If you want to impress your loved ones and show them that you know how much they like coffee, then why not get them a coffee syrup? There are many different flavour combinations for you to choose from, but vanilla and coffee and maple syrup and coffee are the most popular. Coffee syrup is great with pastries, so you could go out and pick your loved one up some of their favourite pastries for when you give them the gift. This will allow them to try your gift out in front of you!
Many gourmet coffee companies are operating online now. Many of these companies offer coffee samples, usually for a small fee. These samples will include a variety of different coffee products, with beans from across the world. Trying out one of these services and buying some of these samples allows you to introduce new beans and new brands to your loved ones. You will feel incredibly happy with yourself if your loved one takes up your suggestion and starts buying coffee from one of the brands you have brought them a sample of.
If you want to get your loved one an extravagant and useful gift, then why not just invest in a coffee maker for them? If you are on a budget and can’t afford a brand new coffee maker, then you may be able to get one on credit or an instalments programme with a platform like Klarna. With that said, Christmas is approaching, which means that there will be coffee makers offered on sale. Try to browse as many sales as you can, to find the best deal.
Coffee lovers don’t just like drinking coffee, they also like enjoying coffee-related artwork and memorabilia. There are lots of different art prints that you can order online featuring coffee. If you want to get your loved one a good gift, then why not get them an art deco coffee print? You can either get one that’s mass produced, or you can commission an artist to make one for your loved one. Truthfully, one that has been made specifically for your loved one is a much better gift than one that millions of other people have.
There are several brands that offer toiletries infused with coffee. Coffee has myriad benefits for one’s health, including one’s skin and hair. If you are interested in getting your loved one a unique coffee-related gift, then a moisturiser, shampoo, or soap infused with coffee is worth considering. Not only will they benefit from it, but they will also smell like coffee all day. Try to find a brand that offers products with natural and organically sourced ingredients. Because the toiletries will contain coffee, make sure that the coffee is Fairtrade or is from a sustainable farm.
There are many different ways one can brew a cup of coffee. If your loved one loves coffee but isn’t an expert, why not get them a guide? A guide will teach them how to make different types of coffee. This will give them something to do in their spare time and will be very fun. You could also get them several different machines to complement this book. Many manufacturers offer guides on how to brew coffee, giving instructions on how to make everything from mochas to drip coffee. You can find brewing guides online or in cookery stores. If you’re on a budget, you can even print off and prepare your own.
If you have a coffee addict in your life, then buying a gift for them won’t be difficult. Make sure to find out what coffee-related things they have at home first, so you don’t get them something they don’t need.
