9. Literary Tea & Coffee Gifts

(Amazon)

Caffeine and books go hand-in-hand, especially when you have a big, fat novel that you just can’t put down. There are lots of cool caffeinated gifts that were inspired by literature. Charles Dickens’ Black Tea Blend, pictured above, is a nice option for tea drinkers. Finding coffee with a literary bent is a little tricky, but you can always go with Starbucks. The famous coffee company takes its name from a character in Moby Dick. We like Starbucks Blonde Veranda beans. Either beverage would taste great when you sip it out of a “Banned Books” coffee mug or a Charles Dickens quote mug.

Price: $9.75 for the tea, $12.99 for the coffee
