best gifts for coffee lovers

While some runners can somehow roll out of bed and start running with the rising sun, the rest of us need a little extra motivation in the morning. For many, there’s no better gift than a dose of caffeine to start the day or to fuel a PR. Whether your friends will down anything with enough caffeine in it, or snub their nose at anything other than craft dark roast, we found some of the best gifts for coffee lovers to improve their mornings.

You don’t have to worry too much about encouraging a bad caffeine habit either: Research shows that most people can safely consume up to five cups a day without negative side effects like high blood pressure, headaches, and heart disease. One or two cups of coffee daily is actually linked to better cardiovascular health and comes with a slew of other benefits for runners like improved muscle recovery and faster runs. So feel free to help out your favorite runner friends make their pre-run ritual even better with these gifts for coffee lovers, from coffee makers, to mugs, and more.
