The Koala is available in three different color combinations (in tri-blend cotton printed with eco-friendly ink), and also comes in men's sizes. Get it from Etsy for $21.99.

The dinosaur is available only in green, but you can get it for men, women, or children for $16.99 at Crazy Dog T-Shirts.

2. An Oct-TEA-pus poster that you can get in three different sizes.

It's a beautiful way to infuse your life with a little illustration. Get it for $6.30 from Etsy.

3. A candle that evokes the scent of their favorite beverage (whether they prefer citrus cardamom or Earl Grey).

pfcandleco.com, etsy.com

(Click or tap the images above to see more information). Both of these selections are soy candles made in the USA — the P.F. Candle Co. option is $18 for 7.2 oz, and is primarily scented with citrus and black tea, then spices. The Bubble & Geek option is $16 for 8 oz and is scented like traditional Earl Grey (black tea and bergamot with a little citrus).

4. A Japanese matcha starter kit to shake up their afternoon tea ritual.

shop.ippodo-tea.co.jp

Matcha gets a bad rap for being "hipster", but this particular brand of tea has been sold in Japan since 1717. The time and effort required makes it best for the devoted tea lover, though — get a starter kit from Ippodo Tea for $65.

5. Or this Calm the Fuck Down Tea that does exactly what it's advertised to do.

firebox.com

Chamomile is the most relaxing tea to drink, fight me. Get it for $13 at Firebox.

6. Cupcake molds that will let them double fist their tea and cake.

fredandfriends.com

A cup of tea in your right, a cupcake in your left. Get it, $20 for a set of four, at Fred and Friends.

7. A jar that looks like a terrarium, but actually holds their loose-leaf tea and looks like a tea plant, growing.

uncommongoods.com

The bottom screws on, so it won't dump tea all over the place when you flip it over. Get it for $15.99 at Uncommon Goods.

8. A glass teapot that makes it easy to brew loose-leaf teas.

brookstone.com

There are several versions, but I like being able to watch the leaves expand, like you can in this Bodum version. Get it at Brookstone for $30.

9. Or, a magical contraption that both wakes you up in the morning and brews a fresh cup of tea for you to sit up and drink immediately.

amazon.com

Just don't whack it hard trying to snooze it — you don't want to burn your fingers on the tea. Get it for $79.99 at Amazon.

10. A face mask or skincare set made with the help of tea.

$6 / Via sephora.com, sephora.com

These two options depend on your budget and who you're buying for — the green tea mask is super affordable, making it great to gift to friends. Get it atSephora for $6. The Fresh gift set is better to give to, say, your mom or sister. Get it for $93, also at Sephora.

11. A teapot cookie cutter to inspire the royal icing fan at the next brunch they host.
