For the coffee lover in your life
Love is in the air, and whether you’re shopping for your boo, or just for you, our Grim Reaper’s V-Day Gift Guide will inspire even the darkest of hearts. Don’t forget to place your gift orders ASAP so you can get the goods by Valentine’s Day!
Stay focused and raise your heart vibration with the Morning Ritual Candle. A subtle blend of smokey notes, woodland spices, amber vanilla and The World’s Strongest Coffee beans, this candle lights the way out of winter’s dark-a*s days, and hopefully into more romantic territory. Wink, wink. Make this an aromatic addition to your morning rituals—or gift one to your crush in the customizable candle box (scribbled with sweet nothings) and see if they can resist your romantics wiles.
Get steamy and bring the spa experience home with a self-care kit for coffee lovers. Like a rejuvenating cup of coffee for your whole body (or your Valentine’s), our Empowermint Self-Care Kit includes peppermint-scented and coffee-infused soap, body scrub, body cream and lip balm—all packed in a “forever fresh to death” travel bag. It’s all American-made, too—that’s sexy. Did we mention it smells like ambrosia? Well, it does. 🔥
Give your Valentine the gift of being cozy, but looking like they have their sh*t together. (Yes, you can be your own Valentine). Our matching Death Wish Sweatsuit is the 2021 DWC uniform of chill. It’s polished enough for running errands, walking the pooch and low-key zoom meetings. It slips on like a dream over workout gear—remember resolutions? Or buy one for you and your main squeeze for that Hellraiser movie marathon you’ve been planning over V-Day Weekend #couplegoals.
As you’re packing for that romantic getaway, grab our On-The-Go Coffee Kit that can be brewed anywhere, anytime—just add hot water. You’ll find an 8-pack box of Death Wish Instant Coffee, two enamel mugs tucked into a rugged canvas bag—a no-brainer necessity for ski trips, hiking weekends or road trips. Cupid’s choice: Use it for that romantic candle-lit date patio—to keep you caffeinated, and up late with your soulmate, gazing at the stars and into each other’s eyes.
What would Valentine’s Day be without giving sweet treats, cooking romantic dishes and serving the World’s Strongest Coffee to symbolize the boldness of your love? Designed for the sexy chefs and fave foodies in your life, our Never Burn Coffee Apron is a bold way to keep all of those DWC tees clean in the ‘kitch. We like gifting it with a red tin of our Chocolate-Covered Coffee Beans—because chocolate chased with a kick of caffeine is the ideal cooking snack. Bon Appetit!
They don’t have time to waste on weak-a*s coffee or weak-a*s Valentine’s Day gifts? Not into cream and sugar? Not into a dozen roses? We got you. Gift them “Death to Weak Coffee” unisex T-shirt—it really speaks their truth and helps vet potential dates if they’re on that Bumble game.
If they’re a serious Zakk Wylde fanatic, or had a crush on all of the men of the Knight Guard in GOT, go for the Valhallha Java Hoodie. The durable cotton fleece is worthy of a warrior of Valhalla. Made for brewing DWC beans and drinking out of Das Horn, there is no such thing as too many hoodies. So, your lover can suit up like they’re in Odin and prepare for a mental battle with Father Winter.
Fill our DWC Duffle Bag and then it’s just a matter of choose-your-own-Valentine's-Day-adventure: a romantic cabin weekend, a mountain ski trip or a road-trip to that nearby town’s haunted house. Throw in our On-the-Go-Coffee Kit, a tin of Chocolate-Covered Coffee Beans and a few fav hoodies and you’ll have the dreamiest getaway bag we can think of.
