Buying gifts for anyone can be a challenging process. Between birthdays, Christmas, engagements or promotion parties, it’s difficult to consistently come up with fresh invigorating gift ideas. Luckily there’s a category of gifts that never misses – gifts for Starbucks lovers.
Of course this isn’t a gift for every single person on the planet, but we’re willing to guess that almost everyone you know has tried and loved Starbucks at one point in their life. Whether it’s a grande cappuccino, a venti pumpkin spiced latte, or a misspelled takeaway cup, Starbucks is everyone’s guilty and most Instagrammable pleasure.
It’s for that reason that we’ve put together this list of some of the best gifts for Starbucks lovers around. If you’re stressed for time, not keen to go down to the mall and rifle through endless stores, or just know from the start that your friend will be the ideal recipient of a gift for a Starbucks lover, then this list is for you.
Gifts for Starbucks Lovers – 12 ideas
Out of ideas but aren’t comfortable with giving your friends cash to buy their own gift? Then a Starbucks gift card might just be the next best option.
Suitable for anyone who loves a Starbucks coffee of any age, the gift card can be redeemed for any of their products at any of their stores. You choose the exact amount that you’d like to bestow upon your giftee. You can also decide how you’d like them to receive it – via iMessage, through an email, or as a physical gift card.
This might not be the most personal gift on the list, but hey, most people probably wouldn’t be upset at the prospect of $50 worth of Starbucks frappes.
Is your friend someone who just can’t leave the house without prepping a cold or hot drink to take with them in the car? If so, then consider getting them a custom floral painted reusable Starbucks cup.
Each cup is hand-painted and features a singular arrangement of flowers, meaning every cup is a unique creation. You get to choose the exact type of design you would like, including up to three different flowers and the name of your giftee. You can also choose between a hot and cold cup depending on whether your friend is a black or iced coffee type of person.
The cup is also entirely reusable, meaning the receiver will never have to buy another take-away, disposable cup again. For someone who is environmentally conscious this will undoubtedly be a big plus.
The cups cost between $25 and $30 depending on which style of cup you go for. Not such a bad price tag for a gift that’s so thoughtful, unique and environmentally responsible.
While this isn’t the only personalized travel mug in the list, it’s certainly one of the most unique. It features the famous and instantly recognizable Starbucks decal. And with this personalized travel mug you can decide exactly what type of lettering and message you would like the mug to have.
Add a personalized note using the Etsy link and the artist will create the mug using that message. Get creative with what you choose to have inscribed on your mug. Common examples include “This might be vodka,” giving anyone who sees you drinking out of the mug a little moment of humour on their way to work.
It’s pretty affordable too. For around $11, the artist will create a unique and partially customized mug that your gift receiver will absolutely love. The mug itself is created from 100% BPA-free plastic and is entirely reusable, making it great for those who care about the planet. You can also choose the main color that you want the cup to be.

Is the person you’re gifting a Disneyland lover as well as a coffee addict? Why not combine the best of both worlds with this Disneyland Starbucks Ceramic Travel Tumbler? The mug is produced entirely from ceramic with a silicon lid and designed to keep its contents hot while you travel.
