    Let us honor our favorite bean (and other energizing treats) by breaking out our credit cards and filling our homes with these products. Honestly, I need them ALL and you're going to want them, too.

    1. A tumbler, so you can bring your favorite hot beverage with you wherever you go.


    In an effort to save money, I've picked up one of these tumblers so I can take my tea or coffee with me for my morning commute. Just don't judge me when that plan goes out the window in favor of Starbuck's peppermint mocha lattes. Thanks to the magnetic slider lid on this cup, you don't have to worry about spilling a drop of that liquid gold.

    Promising review: "This is THE insulated mug. If you've been buying and using travel mugs for years, only to have them crack, need hand washing, and underperform when keeping things warm or hot then look no further. I'm particularly impressed with how cold it keeps beverages. The mag-slider lid is nice and provides a good opening so the liquid isn't 'glugging' out. And I love, love, love that it can safely go in the dishwasher. The finish hasn't been impacted by daily use for two months, and I have the feeling that it's going to last a really long time! YAY!" —Critical Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in 15 colors).

    2. A coffee pod holder to keep all your precious caffeine-filled pods in one place.


    How cute is this mug-shaped container? It holds up to 20 coffee or espresso pods, so feel free to load up! My father-in-law lives for his coffee accessories, so I'm definitely eyeing this one for him this holiday season.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for! I needed somewhere to store my K-cups because I had no cabinet space, but plenty of counter space. This is a very attractive solution. It makes that corner of my counter look like a cute coffee corner. My coffee is right there when I need it and it holds plenty of K-cups. I definitely recommend! Cuter than others I have seen." —Taikun

    Get it from Amazon for $20.60 (available in three styles).

    3. A French press coffee maker that looks more expensive than it is, to brew up some morning motivation.


    Quick coffee is convenient, but it also usually tastes as such. Take a little extra care making your morning cup 'o joe by spending some time with this durable French press. It's ideal for finely ground beans and honestly will just look super fancy on your kitchen counter.

    Get it from Amazon for $15+ (available in 3-cup, 4-cup, or 8-cup options).

    5. A pack of energy-boosting gum that is filled with 100mg of caffeine per piece to keep you going throughout the day.

    Promising review: "This stuff is for real and works great. I'm a Firefighter/EMT and chew this gum on shift when I feel tired. It keeps me awake and alert when I need to be, and without the extra junk that energy drinks contain. This gum is just straight up caffeine delivered exactly where it can be absorbed best. Instead of drinking coffee or energy drinks which make you have to pee later, MEG does the job without any undesirable effects. Totally worth it in my opinion, and costs much less than other energy supplements or drinks and yet works equally as good." —Graham Alden

    7. An electric kettle that will help you make a flawless cup of tea every single time.


    When my husband first insisted on buying this kettle, I questioned him. I couldn't understand why we couldn't continue to heat water on the stove for tea and save some dollars — boy, was I wrong. This kettle is easily the most-used appliance in my home. It specifies exactly what temperature you need to boil your water to for each kind of tea you plan to brew.

    Promising review: "I must have almost 10 ways of making coffee in my apartment. I bought the Chemex recently and it quickly became the go-to standard for my morning brews. It is foolproof, almost impossible to mess up at any stage: Boil water, grind beans, pour water over beans repeatedly until coffee is formed. You could argue there is more technique than that, but at its core, the Chemex is built on an extremely simple concept." —mojambo

The handle of the pot resembles the neck of the sweet animal, and I'm squealing just talking about it. You'll also notice the "whistle" to alert you the water is ready is more of a deep, train-like tone, which is perfect for those who often forget their tea is ready.

Each box comes with a classic novel, something to sip on, and two bookish items. You can actually choose whether you'd like coffee, tea, or hot chocolate! Obsessed.

    14. An electric coffee grinder that will save you from exerting yourself too much while preparing your fave beverage.


    I can't tell you how many times I have watched my husband relentlessly try to grind coffee beans in a handheld grinder. It takes SOOOO long and is the last thing you want to do before you've had any caffeine. This awesome electric grinder takes all the hard work out of grinding, well, anything! It is said to grind up to three ounces of coffee beans in seconds. Pretty amazing.

    Promising review: "We use this grinder daily for coffee beans. I have used it for grinding coriander seeds, and it did that just as well. It is a nice size, and looks good on the counter. It is easy to use, and easy to clean. I actually can get most of the coffee grounds out just by brushing around with the edge of a plastic measuring spoon, since the grounds want to stick by static electricity after you run the grinder. This is about my favorite small appliance (in a close race with the toaster)." —Elizabeth Mckenzie

    Promising review: "This book has helped me to create my own vanilla lattes, and iced coffees. I have learned to create a product that tastes equally as good, if not better, than the commercial giants. The book covers everything from the history of coffee, to brewing methods, to equipment, and recipes, etc. In my opinion, this is definitely a useful book for someone looking to make their own handcrafted coffee." —Alli S.

They are sugar-free and even contain B vitamins in addition to the caffeine. Two of these mints = one cup of coffee, so you can get your fix at literally any time.

    Promising review: "I don't normally use products like this because I typically end up with an upset stomach and uncomfortably jittery. However, I experienced none of that with these mints. I really like these mints. Pretty tasty for a caffeine mint. There is a little bit of a caffeine flavor but it is certainly not strong or overpowering. The mint flavor itself is fairly strong, so you are left feeling nicely awakened, with minty fresh breath. Can't beat that!" —Nicole

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bath scrub! Never in my life have I had such soft skin... I've heard so much talk about coffee scrubs, so I decided to give this one a shot. After exfoliating in the bathtub, I let it sit on my skin for a few minutes to be sure the oils have time to soak in, then just rinse it off. I don't consider myself a morning person AT ALL, but since I've started using this in the morning, I actually look forward to waking up to the amazing scent! This is a MUST HAVE!" —Mitchell Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. A too-cute dinosaur tea infuser that will have you giggling anytime you whip up a cup.


    I am freaking out over these tea infusers. Why would you even bother purchasing the boring circular ones when you can have THESE?! This item comes with both a blue and a green dinosaur diffuser, so you can share one with a friend.

    Promising review: "I tried out my tea infusers for the first time this morning and I like them very much! I like how the two pieces snap together, unlike traditional tea infusers, because it allows for less tea leaves escaping into the tea. I also love the silicone material because you can handle practically all parts of the infuser straight out of the tea without getting burnt." —Emily S. Mcadam

    23. A frothing pitcher so you can achieve your hipster coffee shop dreams of creating your own latte art at home.

For his birthday we sent him to a latte art class (yes, in Brooklyn that is a THING) in which they provided him with the right tools to create impressive beverage displays — including this frothing pitcher.

    Promising review: "Great quality, inexpensive. Measurements inside the pitcher are accurate. Has already stood the test through the dishwasher and no issues with the finish or the markings of the measurements inside the pitcher. While steaming the milk, the heat doesn't transfer to the handle so you don't have to worry about burning your hand." —Vanessa Armenta
