By the Lavazza Team 2–3 minutes

There are plenty of coffee lovers out there. Many start every day with a tasty cup of coffee; while others drink it to relax and unwind with friends and family at the weekend.

If you know a coffee fan with a birthday coming up, and you’re looking for something to make their tastebuds tingle, we’ve put together a list of the best birthday gifts for coffee lovers.

Read on for coffee gift ideas for all budgets and all tastes.

5 Coffee Birthday Present Ideas

Each of these birthday ideas for coffee lovers can be personalised to suit the coffee fan in your life.

1. Coffee Beans

Birthday coffee gifts don’t need to be elaborate or complicated. If you know what they like to drink, then gifting their favourite coffee beans is the way to go. If your budget allows you to splash out a little, you can get them an upgrade on their usual grounds or beans. A fancy tin, an exclusive blend, or a deluxe version is a nice birthday treat.

If you want to spend time celebrating together, why not choose coffee as a theme for a birthday party? You could plan a coffee-themed day where you head to a roastery for tasting or make your own coffee-flavoured chocolates and cakes.

2. Coffee Machine

One of the most impressive coffee birthday presents is a coffee machine. It’s not suitable for all budgets, but if it’s a big birthday you could split the cost with others. Italian machines that make espresso and froth milk are one option - or, if they enjoy experimenting, then a manual machine could be just the thing.

A coffee machine might be the ultimate birthday present for a coffee lover, but it doesn’t have to be too expensive. Getting them a cafetière for the office or a moka pot could also be a nice touch.

3. Coffee Making Accessories

Accessories  are a great present for coffee lovers if you’re on a smaller budget – or for the coffee aficionado who already has everything.

How about a new set of elegant cups; a joke mug for their workplace; or gadgets to keep their coffee hot? For a larger gift, you could get them a new grinder and some coffee beans. A milk frother is great for those who want to perfect their cappuccino at home. And for anyone with a sweet tooth, a set of syrups is sure to be a hit.

4. Coffee-Themed Birthday Box

If you’re looking for a couple of birthday gift ideas for coffee lovers, then we recommend combining them. By creating a coffee birthday box, you can show that you really know the person and give them a few different presents in a themed package.

You can pack the box with coffee beans, a mug and some syrup. Alternatively, you could put in coffee pods for their machine, a cup and saucer set and some coffee-themed spoons. You can put your own twist on this idea to suit them.

5. Coffee basket surprise

If you need more space for lots of little presents, you can put them together into a coffee birthday gift basket. Combine any of the ideas given above and then place them in a large basket to create a themed hamper.

You could also add coffee-related items, such as candles, flavoured lip balm, chocolates, a funny T-shirt, and chocolate-coated coffee beans.

What You Need to Know Before Buying

Do your research before buying, to make sure the gift is totally unique and perfectly suited to the birthday boy/girl. What drink do they normally order in a café and which gadgets do they already have in the kitchen?

It doesn’t matter if it’s gifts for him, coffee for your mum, or a jokey present for a colleague, with our list of ideas, it’s easy to give a coffee lover a birthday treat to remember. Go all out with a birthday coffee gift basket or keep it simple with some coffee beans – they’ll love it!
