For some folks, holiday gift shopping is the most fun part about this season. It's their chance to show off how thoughtful they can be and shower their family and friends with exciting new things to use, wear, or play with. For some of the rest of us (myself included) it can bring on a tinge of anxiety because, wait, wasn't it just Labor Day? How is it late November already?! Suffice it to say, we get it: shopping for a persnickety coffee person can be tough, especially if shopping for gifts in general is a little stressful for you. That's why we focus on two main gift guides: one full of all our favorite coffee gear for the year, and this, our guide of cool coffee gifts for every budget. If anything, we hope we can make your gift shopping a lot more fun and easy.
So, here it is: our simplified guide to great holiday gifts for coffee lovers, sorted by price.
