  6. Cool Carafe

    Cool Carafe

    Rather than surprising your mom with a gift card to the nearby coffee shop, give her the gift that keeps on brewing—a cold brew coffee maker. Like the name suggests, cold brew coffee is steeped in cool water over a long period of time (at least 12 hours) to create a smooth, naturally sweet, and slightly less acidic taste than regular iced coffee—and the Primula Burke Cold Brew Caged Carafe makes it so simple to enjoy it at home. Simply place coffee grounds in the filter, add the filter to the carafe, then slowly fill with water. Keeping cool and caffeinated couldn't be easier! Available at Target ; $16.39.
