Is it too early to start putting out gift guides? I don’t know about you, but even as a person who adores fall and loves to soak this season in as much as possible, I’ve found myself longing for the holiday season, which is rare. Perhaps it’s the weight of all that’s happened this year, but I’m really looking forward to making our home look jolly and try to pick out some gifts that I can send to loved ones in the mail.
We have a few gift guides this year that we’ve created that we think you’re all really going to love, including this one for our fellow coffee lovers!
Personally, I could not wait to prepare this gift guide considering that I’ve been spending the last eight months making coffees during the week at home. Whether I’m recreating some of our favorite lattes or experimenting with some new ones using the ingredients we have in our cabinet, I have really enjoyed making lattes at home.
Perhaps you know someone in your life who is similar and who has recently taken up an interest in doing so either for fun or to save a few dollars each month. In today’s gift guide, we’re sharing with you some budget-friendly items you can purchase the coffee lover in your life to help them continue to pursue their at-home barista dreams.
While on our blog we’ve shared different methods for frothing your coffee without one, there’s nothing like having a machine that can do it for you. A handheld frother or a frothing machine is a perfect way to help your friend make their delicious frothy lattes without having to put in a whole lot of extra work.
Coffee stencils are a great way to create latte art without needing to try to attempt it on your own. It saves you time and effort by simply allowing you to achieve the look by sprinkling the topping of your choice over the stencil.
CLEAR INSULATED COFFEE MUGS:
Have a friend that loves collecting mugs? Grab a couple of clear, insulated coffee mugs so that after making their pretty creations they will be able to see them through the class. Many of these cups are also designed to hold the temperature so no more lukewarm coffee!
This might be a bit pricey, but depending on where you purchase it from as well as when, you can get a pretty great deal on an espresso machine that will take your loved ones’ coffee to the next level. Our brewer, which I can’t speak highly enough about, has the ability to make regular coffee and espressos, but you don’t need a machine like ours to do so. There’s plenty of machines out there that will enable your loved one to create lattes and macchiatos to choose from!
Gift your loved one some latte syrups based on some of their favorite drinks to enjoy at coffee shops. Make it a gift by placing it in a basket with mugs, their favorite at-home coffee beans, and a coffee stencil for a sweet but inexpensive gift for the coffee lover in your life.
COFFEE MUG WARMER:
Say goodbye to lukewarm coffee with this coffee mug warmer! Grab a coffee warmer for your loved one who is a bit of a workaholic and frequently has to reheat their coffee.
PERSONALIZED COFFEE MUGS:
Speaking of coffee mugs, why not gift your loved one a personalized mug with their monogram, name, or favorite quote on it? This is a thoughtful way of acknowledging one of their favorite drinks by giving them another mug to add to their collection with a personal touch to it.
Coffee containers are a great place to hold your coffee beans and maximize the freshness of them. Grab a container for your loved one that seals to help them have their beans last longer!
