Try French press coffee with this $10 Bodum (40% off)

See what all the French press fuss is about, and save some counter space while you're at it.


This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

French press coffee makers have some distinct advantages over the bigger machines. For one, they save you some serious counter space, since the average French press is about the size of a large jar. You can also easily sling your French press along to an Airbnb or camping trip if you're worried there won't be life-giving coffee there. If you've felt the urge to go French, snatch this Bodum 3-cup French press coffee maker for 40% off, marked down to $10 right now.
