Whether you're in the market for something to up your holiday hospitality game for out-of-town guests or you're looking to give a gift that nearly everyone will enjoy (read: the gift of caffeine), this Bialetti Moka Pot is a good choice.

Benefiting from more than 80 years of craftsmanship, this sturdy aluminum pot features a sleek eight-sided shape that looks cool while being functional (it's designed to evenly distribute heat in order to enhance the coffee's aroma). The three-cup model makes up to three traditional-sized espressos in five minutes, but if you want more servings at once, it also comes in larger capacities (all the way up to a 12-cup version). And at just $19, it's currently at least $10 cheaper on Amazon than other major retailers.

Another thing we love about the moka pot? It's also refreshingly low-tech. When other coffee makers have so many bells and whistles that it gets overwhelming, this is a huge plus — even your Luddite father can figure out how to use it, whether he's visiting you and wanting java at 6 a.m. while you're still asleep or you're giving it to him as his Christmas present.
