For some, it’s an absolute A.M. must-have. For others, it’s a beloved morning ritual. For many, it’s a little bit of both. No matter which camp you fall into, there’s no denying that that daily cup (or two or three) of coffee is a very important part of many people’s routines. And for those for whom coffee is a way of life, looking for a coffee-inspired gift is always a good idea. Hot tip: Think beyond beans, and consider giving a cool appliance or accessory that will make their morning brew sesh that much more enjoyable. Or, go even further outside the box and consider coffee- or caffeine-infused beauty products; there’s no shortage of those, given that both ingredients actually can do great things for your skin. Point being, there are a ton of different options to choose from when shopping for the java-obsessed.

The Ordinary Caffeine 5% + ECGC Depuffing Eye Serum


A cup of joe may make you feel more awake, but this eye serum will make you look more awake. The caffeine in the formula combats both dark circles and puffiness; we also love how lightweight it is, absorbing quickly and layering nicely under other products.

Rae Wellness Energy Capsules


Here’s a good alternative to that second cup of coffee or an option for an afternoon pick-me-up. Two capsules contain slightly less caffeine than a cup of coffee, but offer a nice energy boost without any jitters or subsequent let-down. We’re also big fans of the fact that you can adjust the serving to your liking, and how affordable they are.

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Moisturizer for Men

The caffeine in this gel-cream helps to energize the skin and reduce dullness, though it also contains antioxidant-rich vitamin C and chestnut extract. We especially like the finish, which is neither too greasy nor too matte, but rather leaves skin looking healthy and glowing.

Golde Coconut Collagen Boost

Thrive Market

Adding a scoop of collagen powder is one easy way to amp up the nutritional benefits of a cup of coffee, and this coconut-flavored option is one of the best we’ve tested. When we tested it, we loved how beautifully it frothed up, not to mention the fact that it’s completely plant-based, a great pick for vegetarians and vegans.
