DSC_0667smThis week we’re supposed to have some cooler weather (hooray!) so I thought I might feature this super cute gift idea – the coffee cozy (and optional gift card)!  It’s perfect for the transition into fall  – functional AND adorable!

Next time you need a quick gift for a co-worker, teacher or friend, simply hide a coffee shop gift card inside an empty cup (they’ll give you one if you ask for it) with a coffee cozy on it. This would be a great hostess gift too – just print a little card that says something like, “Your kindness warms my heart!  Thanks for throwing me a shower!”    {they’ll just think you’re so clever}

DSC_0683smDo you have a “stash” of gifts in your closet to give on a moment’s notice?  If so,  this idea is the perfect addition to your grab-and-go options! With a few cozies on hand, when you need gift in a flash, you can swing by your favorite coffee shop (even on the WAY to the party,perhaps?) get a gift card, an empty cup and lid, and you’re good to go! {With a cute gift in- hand, nonetheless.}

I sell these particular coffee cozies at my store, but if you love to sew, you might enjoy making your own cozy (love this tutorial for a fabric version).

Cheers!  Happy, easy-gift giving this fall!
