Ah, that Black Friday feeling. Rather than hit the stores, we’re keeping our eye out online today.

While those big ticket items, such as televisions, gaming consoles and other tech gadgets probably attract most attention today, you can also save yourself a smart penny on other Christmas gifts.

Here are the best choices of gifts we’ve found so far for those tea and coffee lovers in your life.

De’Longhi Magnifica ESAM4200 Bean to Cup Espresso/Cappuccino Coffee Machine

delonghiOkay, we will admit this one straight up.  Feel Christmassy towers won’t be getting one of these because it’s somewhat out of our price range.  However, if you love great, fresh, ground coffee served in one of the most stylish machines you can buy for your home, you may be interested in looking at De’Longhi today.  Some of their big hitters have incredible price reductions.  We spotted them on John Lewis, but for consistency, Amazon have them reduced from £449.99 to £229.99.  That coffee-lover in your life really will love you if they unwrap this on Christmas morning.

RRP: £449.99
Black Friday: £229.99

Whittard Teas of the World gift box

whittardteaWe love this world tea selection box from Whittard.  It’s available on Amazon today and is due to be in a lightning deal, but will likely sell quickly.  Even at full price, it’s not at all bad!  We love the retro packaging on each different tea type.

There are nine different types of tea, each in 50g quantities.  It recommends one tea bag per mug, or 3-4 bags for a 6-cup pot.  So plenty to get that tea-loving family member through Christmas.
