It’s no secret that many of us are casual coffee addicts. And chances are, you’ve got someone on your Nice List that fits the description. With fewer excuses to grab a barista-made cup of joe on the way to work, tools and accessories to brew and enjoy quality coffee right at home are especially gift-worthy this year. From the grab-and-go, no-fuss drinker to the serious coffee connoisseur in your life, you’ll be able to find something for everyone.


We promise this isn’t just another travel mug. This is the coffee cup you can bring just about anywhere without compromising on experience or convenience. Unlike a lot of to-go mugs, Fellow’s Carter cup is built with a wide mouth that delivers your drink via a thin, tapered metal lip that mimics a Cabernet glass. The sleek design makes sipping between errands more comfortable, aromatic and closer to the experience you would have at home, in a regular cup. Yep, that means saving your loved one from burning their tongue through a tiny hole for the zillionth time! The insulated mug, which comes in an array of colors (we’re partial to the Warm Pink), is sealed with a closed, leak-proof twist top. Instead of struggling to keep a tumbler upright, busy bees can feel good about throwing the Carter into a bag.

Le Creuset makes more than fancy Dutch ovens. Gift the simplicity of a pour over vessel with the reliability and vintage vibe of this pretty yet affordable mug from the famous French cookware brand.

This one’s for the outdoorsy friend who can’t start an adventure without coffee. Or the one living in a tiny apartment. The manual AeroPress is known for its brilliantly simple design, easy cleanup and yielding single-serving beverages that satisfy even the snobbiest of sippers.

If that friend already has an AeroPress, their coffee experience is about to get even better with the Prismo, an accessory valve that allows brewers to skip a step. With the seal, the gadget can build up pressure for espresso-style coffee without inversion. Plus, the attachment eliminates the need for wasteful, single-use paper filters with a reusable filter.

Unsightly half-opened coffee bags don’t have to litter a kitchen counter thanks to Planetary Design’s sleek storage canister. With the Airscape, whole beans stay fresh with the help of two lids: a clear top, and a second lid that’s pressed right down to where the beans stop. You can literally feel and hear air getting pushed out of the container.

The Hario Cold Brew Bottle is shaped like a wine bottle, but includes a built-in ultrafine filter that makes homemade cold brew mind-blowingly effortless. Simply drop ground coffee into the filter, add water and let chill in the fridge. Eight to 12 hours later, just pop off the cap and pour directly into your cup. No additional filtering or messy spills from a Mason jar required.

For those who prefer to brew their whole week’s supply in one go, opt for the OXO Brew Compact Cold Brew Maker. Cold brew gadgets can be clunky and involve several small parts, but this slim design from OXO makes steeping concentrates ultimately filtered into a beautiful corked vessel easy without taking up precious counter space.

Buy It

At-home coffee afficionados will tell you manually grinding beans is no fun task, especially if you go through a few cups a day. The OXO Conical Burr Coffee Grinder comes with 15 grind size settings (for all your coffee needs) and a touch-and-go dial timer.

Bring the coffeehouse to a happy household with Ninja’s Coffee Bar system, equipped with a built-in frother. The machine can make carafe-sized batches and single-serving drinks (sans single-use pods) for every type of familys needs. It also does both hot and cold drinks, with whole settings dedicated to over-ice brews.

Inspired by Scandinavian aesthetics, this manual espresso maker brings coffee shots and chic, minimalist design to the kitchen. It’s hard not to treat yourself every afternoon with something this simple yet luxurious.

Pour-over the right way can feel intimidating to do at home. But for serious coffee drinkers who want to try their hand, Fellow makes smooth, potent coffee foolproof with its kit. The set includes the Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle, Stagg Pour-Over Dripper, Stagg Tasting Glass and 20 paper filters. The kettle can be set at a precise temperature and held for up to an hour making perfect pour-over super easy while the dripper and double-walled glass, designed for each other, make going from brewing to sipping a seamless process.
