"Yeah I'll go with you, but can we stop at Starbucks first?!"

12 Gift Ideas For The Friend Who ALWAYS Has A Starbucks Cup In Hand

We all have that one friend who talks about coffee and Starbucks constantly. Whether you're going to run errands, going on a road trip, or just on your way to class, this friend is always down to make a pit stop at Starbucks first (actually, it's a mandatory stop for her).

We have also all had the issue of trying to figure out what to get all our closest friends for Christmas. When looking for gifts, most people look for affordable, practical presents that have some sentimental value or appeal to something that your friend really likes. Coming up with gift ideas for the people closest to you can be the ultimate struggle around Christmastime.

Well, for those of you who have a friend who LOVES Starbucks, look no further! Here are 12 gift ideas that are perfect for ANY and EVERY Starbucks-lover out there.

On the other side of the hot-cold spectrum, this is the perfect gift for the friend who refuses to order a hot drink, no matter the temperature outside. Just like with the hot reusable cup, this cup is environmentally-friendly and offers discounts when you order a drink with it. What's not to love!

These mugs are perfect for the Starbucks lover who also loves to travel! Whether it's a mug from somewhere you and your friend have been together or somewhere you would like to go, these mugs are an amazing and thoughtful gift for any coffee-lover!

4. Mittens


Just because it's cold outside does not mean iced coffee is off the table for true Starbucks fans. Get your friend a cute pair of mittens so they can still enjoy the iced beverage of their choice during the winter season!

5. Coffee Bath Bomb

This bath bomb is made with organic, fair-trade coffee grounds that exfoliate and rejuvenate skin. It also has the delicious aroma of coffee which is said to increase mental alertness and your sense of well-being. This gift is perfect for the coffee lover who also stans self-care.

6. WACACO Nanopresso Machine

This gift is perfect for the friend who enjoys the convenience of the drive through or quick in-and-out pick up options Starbucks offers. With this gift, your friend will still be getting their coffee in an easy and convenient way, but it could help them save a few extra bucks throughout the week!

7. Coffee-Scented Candle

One of the best things about Starbucks is the rich coffee smell inside the store. Candles are always a good gift idea, but an espresso-scented candle will make your Starbucks-loving friend feel like they're in the store when they're in the comfort of their own home (minus all the noisy people).

8. Starbucks Cup Tote Bag

This bag is made from recycled material and looks exactly like the side of a Starbucks cup. Not only is this an eco-friendly and practical gift, your friend who loves Starbucks will LOVE carrying it around.

9. Metal Straw

10. Starbucks Socks

I've found that the older you get, the more you appreciate getting socks as a present. These "If you can read this, bring me Starbucks" socks are sure to be a hit with the Starbucks lovers in the friend group.

This adorable little charger comes in pink, yellow and green and is compatible with any USB cord for iPhones and Androids. Another practical and thoughtful gift for the Starbucks lovers out there!

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

I don't need to feel bad about myself because of who I follow on social media.


Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.


While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
