If you’re looking for some fun gift ideas, these unique coffee gift basket ideas are perfect for that coffee lover in your life!
As an entrepreneur fueled by coffee, I love the idea of creating a coffee gift basket for my fellow coffee fiends and early risers!
I don’t know about you guys, but I just love me a good cup of coffee. However, I do have a confession to make. I’m a terrible coffee connoisseur.
And this is because I am extremely frugal in some regards, coffee being one. We splurge on good coffee (fresh ground) for the weekend, and I love using the French press to make it.
But during the week, when I get up at 3 AM, all I care about is that it has caffeine. So we use good old pre-ground Folgers coffee.
But alas, I digress. If you’re looking for ideas for a coffee gift basket, I’ve put together some fun ideas that any coffee fan would be stoked to receive! From coffee itself, to coffee accessories, these are some awesome ideas.

Ideas for a Coffee Gift Basket
Whether for a true coffee lover, or a fun gift for someone you know that drinks coffee, these gift basket ideas are perfect for low, medium and higher range budgets!
If your friends or family are more the tea loving type, these tea subscription boxes are a great gift idea!
1. Coffee Mugs
I know most of us have a cabinet full of random coffee mugs. Whenever I go to my parents, I love seeing all the old mugs that we have been drinking out of for 20 years.
Personally, I love a funny coffee mug. You know, a conversation piece, like this awesome coffee mug from Funny Guy Mugs. If you prefer something a bit more sophisticated, try this one (errrr….sophisticated might not be the term).
2. Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer
A lukewarm or cold cup of coffee isn’t exactly appetizing, but often there just isn’t enough time to sit down and take the time to drink your cup while it’s still hot. I literally have my coffee mug sitting right next to me in the morning, and it still gets cold.
This Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is a great way to keep your coffee warm at all times. You simply plug it into a power outlet and place your mug on the warmer.
Ummm, yes, it’s a good idea to put some coffee in your coffee gift basket. I think this gourmet whole bean coffee sampler from the Bean Box is awesome. Keep the samples together or divide them among gift baskets.
For those friends and family that don’t yet have a coffee grinder, try this ground coffee sampler box from Cooper’s Cask Coffee. Or you know, buy them a coffee grinder.
4. Flavored Syrup
Flavored syrups can be so much fun to try out in different coffee. To be even more festive, try these holiday flavored syrups (gingerbread…YUM).
Or, if you think it’s time to be done with the holidays, this syrup sampler has flavors like caramel, amaretto, Irish cream and hazelnut.
5. K-Cup Carousel
If you’re coffee lover friend uses a Keurig, then they’ll love this K-Cup Carousel to help keep their K-Cups organized.
The K-Cup Carousel holds 35 singe-serve coffee pods and it works the same as a lazy susan – just spin it around to find your flavor of choice.
It’s also not too big and bulky, which means it fits nicely onto most kitchen countertops, right next to the Keurig.
6. K-Cups Variety Pack
Speaking of Keurigs, another great idea for a coffee themed gift basket is a variety pack of K-Cups!
A sample pack of K-Cups is a great way for a coffee lover to taste a variety of different flavors before they commit to buying a whole box of one flavor (which they might not end up liking.)
If you’re making multiple coffee themed gift baskets, then you could even split up the K-Cups between each basket.
7. Insulated Tumbler
For anyone who likes to take their coffee on the go, then a stainless steel insulated tumbler is a must-have.
This Atlin Stainless Steel Tumbler is one of the most durable insulated tumblers you can buy because it was build for outdoor fitness pros.
It keeps drinks hot for up to six hours and holds 30oz of liquid. Most importantly, it fits in a standard sized cup holder!
I bought a different brand once and I was irritated when I realized that it wouldn’t fit in the cup holder in my car – kind of defeated the purpose of an on-the-go tumbler…
8. Mini Creamer Pods
Everything is cuter when it’s mini-sized, including these mini coffee-mate creamer pods, which would be the perfect addition to any coffee themed gift basket.
Most people enjoy adding creamer to their coffee and these coffee creamer pods come in a variety of popular flavors, such as vanilla caramel.
Just like the k-cups, these could be divided between multiple coffee themed gift baskets and the good thing about these creamer pods is that the recipient doesn’t have to own a keurig to use them.
9. Coffee T-Shirt
As most coffee lovers would be familiar with, the day doesn’t really start until you’ve had your morning cup of joe!
Graphic tee’s are super popular right now, so this “But First, Coffee” t-shirt would be a welcome addition to a coffee-themed gift basket.
The t-shirt comes in a variety of different colors and there are men’s and women’s versions.
A lazy Sunday morning cup of coffee deserves some biscotti with it. Try this biscotti variety pack and divide it up among gift baskets!
11. Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans
For the coffee and chocolate lover in your life (they go hand in hand, don’t they?). I mean come one, who doesn’t want to supplement their coffee drinking with some caffeine packed chocolate covered coffee beans?
This variety pack of chocolate covered coffee beans from Trader Joe’s has dark, milk and white chocolate covered beans.
How To Present Your Gift Basket
There are tons of different baskets that you can choose from to present your coffee themed gift basket, but another great, unique idea would be to place everything inside a large canister like this one, that way it can be reused.
Otherwise, simply choose your favorite basket and place everything inside with some cellophane.
I’d love to hear how you assembled your coffee gift basket. Comment below and let me know!
Another cool addition would be a battery operated frother
Yes, totally! Great idea.
