The best gifts for coffee lovers have the potential to complete their morning routine, or add a spring in their step on their morning commute when the New Year hits.
When shopping for a loved one, it helps to hone in on a theme or passion, and there are few more wholesome interests than an interest in coffee. Buying Christmas gifts for coffee lovers can be tricky though. It's a fast-paced industry, and if you want to buy them something they'll actually use, it can help to consult a gifting expert. That's where woman&home steps in - and particularly me, our Head of Shopping.
I've tested dozens kitchen appliances, from the best Ninja air fryers to market-leading coffee machines, and have a personal interest in in perfecting my home brewing. When out and about, I'll actively seek new and interesting coffee shops to expand my horizons, and I frequently treat myself to a new bag of beans when a blend piques my interest. So this guide comes to you hand-selected for coffee-lovers, by a coffee obsessive.

It's easy to burn through £50 when you enjoy high-quality coffee, but there's still plenty that can be done if you're hoping to put some thought into a coffee-themed gift.

Gifts for coffee-lovers under £100
Coffee-lovers want every coffee to feel luxurious, which makes elevated or eye-catching essentials a go-to if you have a £100 budget. I've chosen a stunning Dolce & Gabbana Moka maker, and something from my wish list, a perfume that's evocative of a cozy coffee shop on a rainy day.

Our top coffee machines for gifting
I'm a bona-fide coffee expert. Having been on trips to coffee machine factories (hair net and all), and tested some of the world's leading machines, I've popped my top picks at a range of prices below.
£225 £159 at Amazon
Coffee fanatics will know that there are few more lusted-after brands than Fellow. They look fantastic, of course, but they're also one of the most trustworthy brands to grind beans sensitively in a user-friendly design. We love the Ode Brew Grinder for day-to-day use, and you get a lot of machine for the price.
RRP: £169 at Currys
An affordable espresso machine with a plush stainless steel finish, the Breville Mini Barista Coffee Machine can pour single or double shots of espresso, and steam milk for a morning latte. A surefire way to cut that coffee shop habit.
RRP: £199 at AO
This option from Smeg packs a punch. It makes up to ten cups at once, and comes in a range of striking retro tones. We love the timer, which allows you to schedule your morning coffee the night before, and for the price we think it's a stunning option.
RRP: £239 at Amazon
Filter coffee lovers should look no further than the Moccamaster. Known and loved by American markets, it's now available in the UK and would make the perfect gift for those who drink coffee by the carafe. We love the Mid-Century design, too.
Available in a range of beautiful neutrals, the De'Longhi Rivelia is the machine to splurge on if you're looking for an automatic bean-to-cup. It's got interchangeable bean hoppers that will allow you to switch to decaf, or simply between blends throughout the day.
