We all know someone who loves coffee. Some of us may even known someone who practically survives on the stuff. I’ve been looking for a Christmas gift for my dad, who runs on coffee. Dependent on how much you want to spend, there are a range of Christmas gifts for coffee lovers available, from gourmet coffee machines to quirky gift sets.
Here’s my pick of the Christmas gifts guaranteed to perk up any coffee lover’s Christmas Day!

Keurig K-Select Coffee Maker, £75
As far as coffee pod machines go, it doesn’t get better than Keurig.
