Coffee lovers tend to be fanatical about getting that perfect java fix, and as addicts ourselves, we can’t fault them. From a stovetop espresso maker to a cold brew liqueur, our gift guide for the coffee fiend in your life covers both the creative and conventional–all for under $50.
Stovetop Espresso Maker, $39.95
There’s no need to bother with a fancy and bulky espresso machine when this space saving stovetop gadget gives you the same fabulous dose. It’s a cinch to use: add water and coffee grounds, put a mug on the built-in platform and boil on medium heat. The brew streams into the mug in just a few minutes.

Coffee Subscription, from $44 for three months
Brooklyn-based boutique sustainable coffee brand Driftaway offers a customizable gift subscription. Choose between four single-origin coffees or one from three cold-brew varieties, and pick your favorite flavor profile, such as fruity or bold. You can get coffees that match your taste delivered either every two weeks or monthly.

Coffee Perfume, $20 for a month’s supply.
Yes, there really is a perfume that smells like coffee. From luxury French house Montale, this gender-neutral scent is called Intense Café Ristretto and opens with notes of just-brewed java and has touches of tonka beans, vanilla and sugar. It’s a perfect pick me up any time of day.
Get it at Luxury Scent Box.
Cold Brew Liqueur, $39
From artisanal Australian coffee roaster and craft distiller Mr Black, this spirit pairs ethically sourced java with vodka. Drink it straight over ice, with a bit of cream or in a cocktail. One pour has as much caffeine as a single espresso so it’s a energy booster and nightcap at the same time and even does double duty as dessert.
Get it at Mr Black.
Stay Warm Coffee Mug, $29.99
Keep your coffee hot for hours in this clever stainless-steel vacuum insulated mug. Super light and comfortable to hold, the mouthpiece has a design that allows for the liquid to flow out smoothly and make drinking easy–exactly how you want you coffee experience to be.
Get it on Amazon.
Top Shelf Instant Coffee, from $10, available in three roasts
Yes, instant coffee really can blow you away. Perfect for the time pressed–and who isn’t?–these bags, from BLK & Bold, a certified B Corp., are filled with freshly ground micro-roasted coffee. Steep the bag for five minutes and sip. Our preferred pick is the toffee-like medium roasted, but single-origin roasts from Honduras and Ethiopia are options, too.
Get it at BLK & Bold.
