Throughout the year, I always keep my eyes peeled for gift ideas, especially coffee-related gifts.
Many of my friends and family drink coffee or tea, and there are some really awesome gifts for coffee lovers under $20.
From mugs to notebooks and amazing coffee flavors, there is something for everyone!
So grab a cup of coffee and come shop with me! 🙂
Gifts for Coffee Lovers Under $20
There are so many amazing coffee mugs out there. And although your coffee-loving friend or family member might have too many already…what’s one more?
#1 – I’m obsessed with the mugs from Little Things with Sam, specifically her Design of the Month collection.
Each month, Sam creates a unique Disney-themed design that is only available for that specific month!
It’s like an exclusive coffee mug club and they are seriously the best…I mean just look at these two past designs below!
Sometimes random drops will happen and Sam will bring back a previous design for a limited time, but you have to be ready for it.
Because once they are gone, that’s it!
Of course, Sam has lots of other awesome designs in her shop aside from mugs, but the mugs are my favorite and would make a great gift for coffee lovers.
And, if you sign up for her email list you will get a discount code for the first time you shop!
#2 – Another awesome shop centered around coffee is the Made for Mama Shop.
Owner Mindy Keegan creates beautiful products centered around motherhood and coffee (my favorite things!). She has a wide variety of products on her site, including some adorable coffee spoons!
There are so many spoon options including “Mama,” “Smile,” and even an option to get a spoon custom-made!
A coffee spoon like this is perfect for the coffee lover in your life, and a bonus is that it is under $20 (even for a custom spoon!).
Plus you can use my discount code KTLIKESCOFFEE to save 10% at the Made for Mama Shop!
#3 – Coffee syrup
Yes Cocktail Company has amazing cocktail kits and syrups to craft fun drinks right at home!
Their coffee syrup would make the perfect gift for a coffee lover in your life!
It features Spearhead Cold Brew and would be great in cocktails, smoothies, or even shakes.
Just print out the Sugarhouse Coffee drink mix on a recipe card and tie it to the cocktail syrup and you’ve got an instant gift for a coffee lover that is under $20 and will be a big hit!
#4 – Coffee-scented candles make for great gifts for coffee lovers under $20!
There are a lot of coffee candles out there, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed with options.
But, I love Sweet Water Decor candles.
They are made in the USA (in Pittsburgh, PA specifically!) and are soy based, plus they come in a ton of different styles and scents.
I love their Fresh Coffee scented candle.
It makes the perfect gift for any coffee lover and it smells amazing!
#5 – A bag of coffee
I couldn’t have a list like this and not suggest at least one bag of coffee.
As you know, there are tons of coffee options for coffee lovers under $20 (seriously…you can’t go wrong with a bag of coffee!), but more recently I tasted and reviewed Expedition Roasters.
And, I really loved the Wonderland Coffee Crumb Cake blend! It was packed with a delicious flavor that wasn’t too sweet or too strong.
It was just a perfect balance and I strongly recommend this flavored coffee.
The bonus is that you can also save 10% with my discount code = KTLIKESCOFFEE
#6 – A latte pour-over kit
If you are looking for something more unique than just a bag of coffee, I suggest Copper Cow Coffee, specifically their latte pour-over kits.
I’m loving the Lavender Latte specifically right now (pictured). But there are so many fun options for the holidays too, including the Peppermint Latte!
Any of these latte kits would make an excellent gift for a coffee lover in your life.
And, there are even tea options!
#7 – Is there a better combination than coffee and chocolate?
I’m not sure there is honestly, and this Coffee + Cream Milk Chocolate bar is delicious!
Made right here in the United States, in Minnesota to be exact, Terroir is a small business that makes delicious chocolate.
And, it’s available in both full-size and mini-size chocolate bars, (both options are under $20 too!).
The mini-size bars would be the perfect stocking stuffer for the coffee lover in your life!
#8 – I am currently using this Coffee Shop Adventures Journal for my coffee-tasting notes. I love the simplicity and feel of the notebook.
This notebook (or one like it) would make an excellent gift for a coffee lover in your life!
Trust me…any coffee lover will love a coffee-center notebook or journal.

#9 – Coffee-themed playing cards
You can never go wrong with gifting someone a deck of cards.
Everyone loves cards and uses them at some point, plus they make for a perfect stocking stuffer!
And, this Bicycle House Blend deck of cards is just what a coffee lover needs!
With coffee mugs on the back and brown hues inspired by coffee, it makes for a great gift for coffee lovers and is under $20!
#10 – And another fun take on playing cards is this Sip-To-Suit card deck about coffee!
A standard deck of cards that also has facts and information all about coffee! The deck includes
- 2 cheeky Joker cards
- 1 unit conversion reference card for volume, weight, and temperature
- 1 introduction/how-to card
- 18 coffee-making methods cards (each with unique Brew Meters)
- 18 drink formulas cards
- 16 educational tips cards
It’s a really fun product that I bet the coffee lover in your life doesn’t have yet!
#11 – A coffee coloring book
A coloring book might seem a little cheezy, but adult coloring books are really popular and coloring in general can be a very good stress reliever for many people.
So why not take a calming activity and put a coffee twist on it?
This Coffee Quotes Coloring Book is perfect. It has over 50 phrases/quotes all themed around coffee.
There is even a “test” color page so you can see how your pen/markers/crayons (whatever you use) look on the pages.
It’s a fun gift any coffee lover will enjoy.
#12 – If you are shopping for a coffee enthusiast, check out the book Craft Coffee: A Manual.
This book focuses solely on coffee (not expresso) and is perfect for someone who wants to understand coffee better as well as learn more about different brewing techniques.
It’s detailed, but not too in-depth that it’s overwhelming. It’s just the right balance.
And, in 2017, the book was named a top food and drink book by a variety of companies, including Food Network.
#13 – A mini coffee cup!
You can drink out of it (it holds 4 ounces!), but it’s mostly a décor-type piece (tons of the Etsy reviews talk about using them in photo shoots).
That said, I can imagine this working great as a stocking stuffer, gift card holder, or something to put chocolate in (preferably coffee-flavored chocolate!).
It’s a cute little gift idea, and I couldn’t resist putting it on this list and sharing it with you all.
#14 – Coffee stickers!
Stickers are all the rage nowadays it seems. And, honestly, I get it…stickers are fun!
You can put them on your laptop, notebook, binder, hard-case cooler, coffee travel mug…the list goes on.
So, why not gift a coffee lover in your life a pack of coffee-themed stickers?
#15 – A milk frother
Every coffee enthusiast needs a milk frother, an electric one specifically…because we don’t live in the days of yore anymore.
There are tons of different brands to choose from and to be real with you…they all do the same thing.
I like this electric milk frother specifically, though, because it comes in a variety of color options so you can match anyone’s kitchen or pick their favorite color!
It makes an excellent gift for a coffee lover!
#16 – Coffee earrings
If you are shopping for a female coffee lover, then earrings are a great idea!
I love stud-style earrings because they are easy on all ear types. There are some really adorable coffee earrings on Etsy, like these Sterling Silver Coffee Earrings that are also available in a rose gold finish.
And, I found these fun Friends Central Perk-themed earrings (pictured), which include a standard crystal stud plus the Central Perk sofa and a coffee cup and saucer.
It’d make a great gift for someone who loves both coffee and Friends!
There are all kinds of gifts for coffee lovers under $20, so don’t stress next time you need a gift for someone special in your life!
