Your coffee-guzzling dad’s birthday or Father’s day is fast approaching, and you completely forgot to get him a gift. What can you do?!
First of all, calm down. There’s no need to worry. With so many different coffee products and handy gadgets out there, your only problem is keeping yourself from cramming them all into a gift box. Here’s a collection of fantastic coffee gifts for dad that will delight him on any occasion.
1. Whisky barrel-aged coffee
Coffee-loving dads might enjoy other beverages, too — like whiskey. So why not combine the two with a coffee aged in a whisky barrel?
The barrel-aging process imparts some of the whiskey’s tasting notes into the coffee beans. They blend into a smooth and robust explosion of flavors perfect for sipping in an armchair by the fire. Together, these two flavors create a truly unique cup of coffee that satisfies both a coffee aficionado and a whiskey connoisseur.
Having sampled these kinds of coffees myself, I can promise that any dad with a taste for whiskey will be a huge fan. Whiskey and coffee make a great flavor combination. After all, there’s a reason why Irish coffee exists!
2. French press
When choosing coffee gifts for dad, an upgrade to his coffee maker is always a good idea. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a regular drip coffee. But the world of coffee is wide and wonderful, and it would be a pity if your dad missed out on it.
A French press produces a more intense flavor and aroma to coffee when compared to a pour-over (such as Chemex or V60), Keurig, or a drip coffee maker. It’s also versatile and easy to use — with a French press. Your dad can make regular and decaf cold brew coffee, tea, and even froth milk for his cappuccino.
Help your dad explore coffee brewing in whole new ways. A French press is one of the best gifts for a dad who likes his coffee rich and full of flavor.
3. Coffee cologne
As every coffee lover would agree, that fresh coffee aroma is truly hypnotizing. Even people who aren’t big coffee drinkers will admit that coffee smells amazing. Your style-conscious dad will radiate energy and vitality with this Arabica extract-infused men’s Eau de Toilette.
Cologne is a traditional Father’s Day gift, so if you are looking for a gift for this occasion, it will be ideal for your coffee-loving dad. The dark and masculine notes of coffee are a perfect accompaniment to a smart suit. In addition, a coffee aroma evokes a sophisticated and smart mood. Your dad can stroll into any event with this fragrance, smelling like he just finished writing his dissertation.
4. Camera lens coffee mug
Who doesn’t love bringing their two interests together? A camera lens-shaped travel mug is an ideal gift for coffee-loving dads who are enthusiastic photographers.
The camera mug will allow your dad to take his favorite coffee with him, no matter where he goes, and it will perfectly blend into a photographer’s gear kit.
You should note one thing, though. Despite its looks, this mug isn’t a real lens. So just remind your dad not to try and screw his mug onto his camera accidentally. It could happen!
5. Funny T-shirt
Ah yes, the age-old problem: what do you give as a gift to a dad who already has everything? A funny coffee-themed T-shirt is always a good choice. Everybody always needs one more T-shirt, after all.
If your dad enjoys a good chuckle, he’ll be thrilled to receive the shirt with a funny print on it. The best part about gifting T-shirts is the sheer variety available. With so many design options, you can choose a shirt that perfectly complements your dad’s personality.
6. Coffee spices
If your dad has become a bit bored with his standard cup of joe, perhaps he needs something to get him out of the rut. Coffee spices are a perfect gift for dad, bringing a flavor surprise to his morning brew.
This gift is inexpensive and simple to use. All your dad has to add a small scoop of this mix into the ground coffee before brewing. The spices give a satisfying twist to any coffee variety without adding the sugar that coffee syrups contain.
7. Coffee filter holder
Does your dad like brewing coffee with the Chemex or V60? You’d probably agree that plastic bags or cardboard boxes that the paper coffee filters come in do not add a nice element of aesthetics to the coffee counter. And if stored in the kitchen drawer, the filters can easily get damaged.
A wooden coffee filter holder comes to the rescue! The sophisticated bamboo with a smooth varnish will fit any kitchen. It can bring a refreshing natural touch to a coffee counter dominated by state-of-the-art coffee appliances.
Your father will love having his coffee filters neatly organized and ready to use whenever he wants to brew his coffee.
8. Burr grinder
To make the perfect cup of coffee, you need to grind your coffee beans just right. And when it comes to grinding consistency, burr grinders are second to none. In addition, the adjustability of a burr coffee grinder will allow adapting the coffee grind size to any coffee brewing method your dad uses. As a result, it will help make a more balanced coffee and enjoy it more.
A burr grinder is an essential Father’s Day gift for a coffee-loving dad who doesn’t already have one. Not only can he use it to grind fresh coffee every morning, but he can also take it to work or on camping trips.
9. Coffee pod variety pack
Does your father prefer brewing his coffee with a Keurig or other K-Cup compatible single-serve coffee maker? A coffee pod variety box will allow him to explore many coffees without an expensive coffee subscription.
Your dad can sample coffees of many different flavors in just a few minutes without effort. The box includes many coffee varieties, and you can choose a flavored or decaf option too.
Who knows, maybe your dad will even discover his new favorite coffee.
10. Cold brew coffee maker
Sometimes the weather is just too warm for a hot beverage. Or maybe your dad is a fan of chilled drinks regardless of the season. A cold brew coffee maker will allow your dad to enjoy a refreshing coffee.
But there’s more to cold brew than just the temperature. It has a unique tea-like flavor you can’t achieve in coffee brewed with hot water.
With a cold brew coffee maker, your dad can make a refreshing glass of coffee even on the most scorching summer day.
11. Coffee socks
A nice pair of socks is a practical gift for dad that you can’t go wrong with. And really, who doesn’t like quality socks to keep their toes warm?
Coffee-themed pair of socks is even better: it is a fun, heart (and foot) warming gift that will bring a smile to your dad’s face.
Whether your dad likes lounging on the couch or camping in sub-zero temperatures, these socks keep his feet as toasty as freshly brewed coffee. And if you can read what is written on the soles, you know what you need to do!
12. Coffee cup warmer
Various coffee drinks can be served hot or cold — a steaming cup of latte and a chilled frappuccino are both wonderful. But let’s be honest, nobody likes the taste of a lukewarm coffee. However, it is easy to forget about your coffee when you focus on work or hobbies, and the drink is ruined by the time you remember it.
Or is it? Not if you purchase a coffee mug warmer for your dad! This ingenious compact design has a handy hot plate that keeps your dad’s coffee, tea, or hot chocolate warm.
A mug warmer is one of the most practical coffee gifts for a dad that will quickly find its spot on his work desk. I’m now wondering how I’ve made it this far without one. What an incredible way to improve your dad’s quality of life — and coffee!
13. Coffee atlas
Reading a good book goes hand in hand with a good coffee. And what better book could there be to accompany a coffee than one that covers everything there’s to know about your dad’s favorite beverage?
The World Atlas of Coffee by the world-famous British barista James Hoffman covers coffee-growing regions by country, explains the origin and features of different coffee varieties, gives food pairing suggestions, and more. Anything your dad has ever wanted to know about coffee, he will learn from this book.
This coffee bible will be a nice feature on the family coffee table. So this Father’s Day, give your dad the gift of knowledge. After reading this book, he will surely have a new appreciation for coffee.
14. Portable espresso maker
There’s nothing like a freshly pulled shot of espresso enjoyed while camping or in the middle of a road trip. Sadly, gas stations or campgrounds usually can’t offer such a luxury.
If your dad can’t live a day without his favorite coffee, a portable espresso maker will be a game-changer for him. This compact and lightweight gadget will allow him to indulge in fine espresso wherever he goes. A cup (or a small thermos) of boiling water and his favorite ground coffee is all that he needs to make a perfect coffee on the go.
The compact espresso maker is an excellent alternative to a Moka pot that does not require a stove and can fit into a pocket.
15. Coffee capsule organizer
Single-serve coffee makers have one big problem — where do you keep all the coffee pods? They can eat up a lot of cabinet or kitchen counter space. Additionally, digging through the pods is a long process if you throw them into a box or a jar.
A Nespresso capsule organizer takes care of the problem. Your dad can organize his coffee capsules based on roast types and flavors. He can then easily select the preferred coffee option when making his brew.
This coffee drawer made of stainless steel and glass looks slick and stylish, and your dad can place his Nespresso machine on top of it.
16. Pour-over coffee maker
Perhaps your dad is a fan of pour-over coffee, but brewing coffee with the Chemex coffee maker is a bit too complicated for him. Fortunately, this simple cone-shaped device can brew coffee quicker than any other pour-over coffee maker out there.
The stainless steel coffee filter makes coffee brewing quick and easy. The best part is that it does not require paper filters, as it has a built-in metal coffee filter. So your dad has to pour hot water over coffee grounds in the filter, and then he can sip on a tasty cup two minutes later.
Dad can also bring this compact pour-over brewer to work or even on a camping trip. He’ll thank you for making his life easier!
17. Specialty coffee gift basket
If your dad is into trying different coffee flavors, here’s something that he’s going to love. A beautiful gift set of pre-ground specialty coffee beans at a reasonable price!
This gourmet coffee gift box will make it easy for your dad to sample multiple flavors from family-owned roasters in the comfort of his home. Mint mocha, caramel cream, Hawaiian coconut, or holiday cinnamon blend — your dad will find a flavor for any day or mood.
He’ll also get a handy, dishwasher-safe travel mug with the gift basket to take his favorite coffee with him on the go. With this coffee set, your papa can have mugs upon mugs of coffee that all taste different.
18. Gooseneck kettle
That slender neck and a curvy body. No, it’s not a sinister seductress but a stylish gooseneck kettle. Although it helps brew excellent coffee, its beauty can be just as tempting.
This kettle is designed to brew coffee with any pour-over coffee maker to help your dad become a proficient home barista. Thanks to the thin kettle spout, he can precisely control the water flow to prepare a clean and crisp cup of coffee.
