Anyone who knows me can tell you that I really, truly adore caffeine. I don't go a day without at least two energy drinks in me; and truth be told, I probably make the energy drink industry the billion-dollar business it is.
The funny thing about caffeine is that there's never a point where you can really have enough, per se. That's why there are so many companies helping energy addicts get bigger and better fixes.
Speaking as someone who can't get enough energy drink, if you have a friend who loves caffeine, a gift loaded with it is always welcome. Here are some of the best gifts for caffeine addicts in your life, as described by a fan of all things energy-related.
(Note: Do not give caffeine to people with heart issues. It is possible to OD from caffeine, so use some common sense, and do it in moderation.)
Cold Brew Coffee Infusion Bottle by ThinkGeek
Caffeine is mostly associated with coffee — and let's just be honest, cold brew coffee is in style. Unfortunately, not all of us can go to upscale coffee shops and shell out $5 a pop for our caffeine fix every time we're craving the delicate flavors of cold brewed coffee.
This easy-to-use infusion bottle lets you cold brew your own coffee, without the snooty barista. That alone makes this one of the best gifts for caffeine addicts who hate hitting up coffee shops for their cold brew goodies.
Caffeinated Soap by Shower Shock
Want your coffee-addicted buddy to quit the habit? Not a problem. You can still get them some awesome (non-ingestible) gifts for caffeine addicts — such as these bars of caffeinated soap.
Shower Shock is chock-full of caffeine, and is made with tingly, refreshing peppermint essential oils. The end result is a shower experience that will wake you up before you even sip your first cup o' joe.

It's a hit in Japan because its caffeine content is off the hook. Speaking as someone who uses it, its flavor can burn a little bit — but that just means it's working. It's great for adding to gift baskets, and even better for just chewing throughout the day for that extra boost.
