Consider these gifts the next step up from your average cup of coffee and tea. Whether it's a book that educates on the finer points of coffee (as we can only expect from Joe, the Art of Coffee), a travel pack to make a gourmet cup of coffee on the go, or a tea-infuser that gets rid of the mess of tea leaves, these gifts will transform your loved one from a novice to a connoisseur.

And of course, there's really no substitute for a fresh bag of coffee or a pack of tea bags for the holidays. Coffee snobs — er, we mean coffee connoisseurs — will appreciate a locally roasted coffee; others may really love that Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks holiday blend. (You get major gifter points if you buy the new $7-per-cup coffee bean from Starbucks, or the super premium $450 steel gift card from Starbucks, this Christmas.) For tea lovers, expand their horizons with a new tisane or blend they haven't tried (Teaologist is our personal choice for exciting new tisanes).
