Put down the too-predictable Starbucks gift card! It's actually possible to give a coffee-themed gift without going the obvious route. We spent some time percolating over all the best gifts for caffeine-lovers. Here are the 10 best we could brew up.

  1. KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker, $100: Our staffers are obsessed with this cold brew coffee maker and we're guessing your loved one will be too. It sits right in the fridge and has a handy tap to dispense the good stuff on demand.
  2. Minimalist Coffee Pour-Over Stand, $85 at Base Modern: This sleek pour-over coffee stand makes a statement ("I like coffee, but I don't like unnecessary clutter!") without taking up too much space. Consider adding the Hario filter cone for an extra $18.
  3. Printed Fringe Banner, $38 at Calhoun & Co.: Your friend is thinking it anyway, so you may as well get her a banner to make her thoughts public.
  4. Coffee Scoop, $50 at Kaufmann Mercantile: Believe it or not, there is an unbelievable number of good-looking coffee scoops out there. This one — made of wood and cast iron — wins our vote as the favorite.
  5. Herringbone Creamer and Sugar Set, $94 at Elizabeth Benotti: For your friend who likes her coffee sweet and light.
  6. Ceramic Espresso Cup, $24 at MinkaInhouse: This espresso cup is handmade in Chile and also the perfect size for drinking wine, tea, or maybe even some wine. Oh, we said wine already?
  7. Ceramic French Press, $120 at Yield Design Co.: While most French presses are glass, this one has heavy-duty ceramic walls, which will keep coffee hotter for longer periods of time. Plus, it's easy on the eyes.
  8. Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle, from $149 at Fellow: Fellow made a splash in the coffee biz a few years ago when it came out with its perfectly designed pour-over kettle. The company is doing it again, this time, with an electric option, designed to heat water to an exact temperature between 135 and 212°F.
  9. The Coffee Deck, $16 at Frausto & Co.: Your favorite caffeine-loving poker player can study up on coffee terms, historical facts, trivia, and more with this well-designed deck of playing cards.
  10. Big Trouble, $16 for 12-ounce bag at Counter Culture: This bag of beans produces coffee that's nutty and caramel-y — and low in acidity. Put it in a stocking or pair it with a mug or French press.
