Christmas 2018 Gift Guide: Coffee/Tea Lover

Another gift guide is here! This one is for coffee and tea lovers. As one that drinks both coffee and tea (especially in the cold months), I thought it would be nice to put together a short gift guide of some of my favorite products or products that I admire from other small business owners.

First up is a lovely lady, Sara, who is the owner of Earl Grey & Polka Dots. I have gotten to know her over the last several months. We met during a mastermind and she is so wise and supportive of small businesses. Her products are created with true meaning that you really need to read over here.

I think this mug is perfect for any tea lover.

Rachel Allene rocks with coffee mugs. She has such a wide variety that bring encouragement to others. She truly fulfils her mission with each product she makes.

I thought this coffee mug is THE BEST to get for your coffee addict friend or even for yourself.

I also encourage you to look at the rest of her products too.

So I do realize this next product is not for a coffee or tea lover but I saw it and HAD to share it. I’ve been following The Blushing Script for awhile and really like her work. She is super sassy and she expresses that side of her personality in her products. So if you or your friend are NOT coffee or tea people then this hot cocoa mug will be perfect for you.


So I saw this travel coffee mug from Chalk Full of Love and thought it was so unique. I have never seen a mug shaped like this before.

You should check out some of her other coffee mugs too. If you or your friend is a Gilmore Girls fan you will really appreciate this collection.

One of my favorite small businesses is Lily & Val. I bought this art print for my boyfriend’s mother last year for Christmas. She loves it so much and has it displayed in her kitchen by her coffee maker.

When Sasha, the boss lady of Creations by Sasha, first shared a preview of this mug to my mastermind group, I knew I had to get it for one of my friends. This mug will be excellent for your sarcastic friend or family member. Or it might just fit your own personality. Her other coffee mugs are on parr with this one.

After discovering Rosalynne Love on Instagram (she is so sweet and genuine) I started browsing through her shop. While doing so, I saw another travel mug that also looked very unique to me. Even though the product was aimed for fall, I think it still has good use any time of the year. She also has several mugs that are definitely worth looking at.

Last but not least is one of the greeting cards from my shop. I illustrated some coffee cups of different styles. It’s a great way to send a sweet note to a friend just because you were thinking of them. Maybe you can put a gift card to their favorite coffee shop as an extra sweet surprise!

So these are just a few of my favorites. I will be sharing more gift guides over the coming weeks before Thanksgiving so you have plenty of time to buy them (especially if there are any custom products) before Christmas.

Disclaimer: I did not ask for the above entrepreneurs to participate, I specifically chose them and am not making any money off of this gift guide. I have put together these gift guides to promote the importance of supporting small business, especially those run by women.
