Latte lovers want to reflect their love of coffee in the gifts they give and receive, right? Which is why I’ve put together a list of some of the cutest, coolest coffee products online and in stores, so you can find a fun and functional gift for everyone on your list. And start a wish list of your own in case anyone wants to buy you something you really want. Instead of, like, a pair of socks… (Unless they’re the soft, fuzzy ones because those are downright cozy.)
Scroll through the products below, and take notes! Santa is so not a procrastinator.
Everything about this product excites me. Caramel latte—yum. Bath bomb—who doesn’t love a good bubble bath? And fizzy—that just sounds fun. This is a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes to relax in the tub and could use some time to unwind. Bonus points if you bring them an actual latte to enjoy while they’re soaking in their latte bath.
The bath bombs could also be the making of a great gift set if paired with this coffee soap. It’s made with natural ingredients and no synthetic fragrance, so it may not smell crazy good like a fresh brewed cup of coffee, but it is a fun, new way to use coffee grinds. Plus, coffee works well as an exfoliator, which is perfect for tough, winter skin. These are on sale throughout November, so grab the code in the Etsy shop and stock up early!
If you want to go DIY this holiday season, I would definitely suggest flavored coffee syrups. They’re SUPER easy to make, and you can probably get away with using ingredients you already have at home. That way, you can buy some cute bottles (I would suggest Marshall’s, TJ Maxx or HomeGoods) and fill them up with delicious syrups made with love.
For the caffeine addict who loves to organize, or just wants the freshest roast possible. As I mentioned in my How To Store Coffee post, it’s crucial to keep your beans in an opaque, airtight container like this one to maintain freshness. Since this one is from The Container Store, it gives you a reason to browse and soak in all the obsessively systematic beauty.
$24.99 from The Container Store
This is another product I mentioned in How To Store Coffee. After you’ve found proper storage for your coffee beans, the method of grinding makes a big difference, too. This one comes highly recommended from readers of Lifehacker especially for the low price. Add it to your wish list if you want to perfect your home brew, or send one to someone who’s updating their coffee station. (Don’t have a coffee station? Check out my At Home board on Pinterest for major inspiration.)
$33.96 from Amazon
The Chemex tops my wish list this year (hint, hint!). This coffeemaker is beautiful, functional and all the cool kids have one. Like basically anyone who knows anything about coffee uses a Chemex to make pure coffee without the bitterness. (I JUST WANT TO BE COOL!) Grab this gift for the hipster in your life, and you’ll score instant cool points too. Plus, when you buy the special edition TOMS Chemex, the conscientious companies will each give one week of safe water to a person in need. Now that’s the holiday spirit!

Now that we have the perfect brewing methods down, we obviously need a new cup to drink from, and this one is gorgeous. If you and your loved ones are anything like me, then you probably don’t need to buy another coffee mug for the rest of your life. Somehow those collections seem to grow and grow until they’re taking over the kitchen. However, with hand painted beauties like this one, it’s time to clean out the cabinets and make space.
Okay, this one is kind of perfect for me. I’ve been known by my family and friends as a lip balm (formerly lip gloss) addict since I was about 10 and Lip Smackers were all the rage. For the last few years, Burts Bees has been my go-to, but this Vanilla Latte-flavored balm has got me all kinds of excited. Andddd it’s caffeinated?! I don’t even know how that would affect your lips, but it sure sounds tempting. And Nature’s Honey Craft Soaps has tons of flavors, including Caramel Macchiato, Pumpkin Spice Latte and Decaf Coffee if the caffeinated lip isn’t your thing.
What pairs nicely with a latte flavored lip balm? A graphic latte tee, of course! This one has glitter in my favorite color, gold, so you really can’t go wrong. Perfect for brunch, if I do say so myself!
Babies need gold glitter too, and they look adorable in little coffee-themed outfits like this one. I get that you might not want to give an actual latte to the little one in your life, but you can start bringing them over to the caffeinated dark side at a young age with this glitter jumpsuit. I mean, it’s a GLITTER JUMPSUIT. How can you not want to put that on a child?!
Everyone’s got a Starbucks addict in their life, and this is the gift for them. Starbucks is offering a new Advent Calendar this year, so you can count down to Christmas with milk chocolate and peppermint bark pieces, plus a gift card at the base. Give this as an early gift, and you’ll seem SUPER prepared. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
$44 from Starbucks
For another gift that keeps on giving, consider a coffee subscription program. There are a bunch of them out there, which you can setup to deliver various amounts of coffee at various intervals to the recipient of your choice. That way, your loved ones will be reminded who gave them the best present all year long.

You know I love my Erin Condren LifePlanner™ to get me through each week without missing a thing on my to-do list. But, I also love it because it’s adorable and makes planning fun, and I’m not alone. The planner world is HUGE on the internet and in real life, and there are entire blogs dedicated to fabulous planners. Chances are, someone else in your life loves planning in style too, and these fun coffee accessories can help. They’re handmade and super cute, so you can mark pages and coffee dates with ease.

Similarly, you and your loved ones can read books in style with these magnetic bookmarks. Choose from one jumbo bookmark or a set of 4 mini bookmarks, each with smiling faces that happily hold your place. These would also work well as placeholders in planners.
Decorate your office, kitchen or really anywhere with this print, which you can order, then frame yourself at a low price that looks way more expensive than it is. If you can’t tell, I love the color combo of black, white and gold, so this would go great in my dream office. Order this print now, then hit up Marshall’s, TJ Maxx or HomeGoods for an inexpensive, stylish frame, and give the gift of coffee art this holiday season. (I also really love Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and HomeGoods. Clearly.)
Finally, a cappuccino candle to round out our list. The candle is the go-to option for your boss, your teacher or anyone you don’t know that well, but you still feel obligated to gift. These ones are adorable (as is everything on this list), and you can choose from three scents (Cafe Mocha, Cafe Caramel or Cappuccino) and a variety of shapes for the cinnamon powder topping. Who says candle gifts can’t be custom?
