Coffee gift ideas for plastic free friends and family

Finding a gift for a friend or family member who is actively trying to reduce the amount of “stuff” in their life can be really hard. That’s made even harder if they are trying to reduce plastic waste.

So without further ado, here are the top 3 gift ideas for those friends who love coffee but hate waste.

1. A re-usable takeaway coffee cup. This is a nice, simple gift and it’s also something that people can have several of. If the gift recipient has a takeaway coffee each day then having a few of these cups in the car means there is less pressure to remember to clean their only reusable cup every day, which is a common problem for many people.

2. If they still use coffee pods at home, then a coffee machine that uses beans will not only save them from creating a lot of waste, but also save them a lot of money. Even the most expensive specialty coffee is much cheaper per kg than most pods. You could also offer to find a recycling depot for their old pod machine.

3. Of course, I can’t resist mentioning that a subscription to Roasted On coffee is a great choice. By buying them a coffee subscription they qualify to join the ReUse Club which means their coffee packaging can be conveniently returned and reused for each order. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can pay for a subscription that recurs every month, or every two or three months. This also saves you from having to think about a present for them for the next gift occasion. Whether that is a Christmas present, a birthday present, engagement or wedding present or even a baby shower present. The gift is ongoing so a thoughtful card that mentions the coffee and gift occasion will be all you need to do. It saves both of you time and effort – a double win! Just change the delivery address at checkout to their address and email me so I can include a note in their first order so they know who it is from.
