Read on to find the perfect coffee gift. All Rise coffee boxes come with personalised handwritten gift notes too! 


Firstly, finding the best coffee gifts for coffee lovers involves considering their preferences, lifestyle, and the type of coffee-related items they might enjoy. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect coffee gift:

  • Understand Their Preferences:
    • Know their coffee preferences. Do they prefer espresso, drip coffee, French press, or other brewing methods? - if you are unsure we recommend whole bean, but the gift recipient can change anytime. 
    • Are they into single-origin coffee beans, or blends? Brazilian or African coffee? Chocolatey or fruity flavours?
  • Brewing Equipment:
    • Identify their preferred brewing method and consider equipment upgrades or accessories. Examples include a new coffee maker, grinder, French press, pour-over set, or Aeropress.
    • High-quality burr grinders, precision scales, and temperature-controlled kettles make great gifts for coffee enthusiasts.
  • Subscription Services:
    • Sign them up for a coffee subscription service that delivers fresh beans to their door - the Rise coffee box is the best way to try new coffee. 
  • Coffee Accessories:
    • Explore accessories like stylish coffee mugs, travel mugs, or reusable cups.
    • Coffee-related art, posters, or wall decor can add a personal touch to their coffee corner.
  • Books and Literature:
    • Consider coffee-related books, such as those on coffee brewing techniques, the history of coffee, or coffee culture.
    • Coffee table books with beautiful photography can be both informative and visually appealing in any home. 
  • Gift Cards:
    • If you're unsure about specific preferences, a gift card to a reputable coffee shop or an online coffee retailer allows them to choose their own items. The Rise digital gift card allows spending anywhere on site. 
  • Coffee Courses or Workshops:
    • Enrol them in a coffee brewing class or workshop to enhance their skills and knowledge.
  • Coffee Gadgets:
    • Explore innovative coffee gadgets like a milk frother, coffee scale with a timer, or a coffee bean subscription that offers a curated selection of beans each month.
