You can clip or tie the tag to a fresh cup of coffee and deliver to someone to make their day. If you want to do more attach the gift tag to a cup that has a gift card inside!

If you want to add a handmade touch it doesn’t take long to whip up a coffee sleeve.  Here a few simple patterns:

Years ago I filled take-out coffee cups with a gift card from our local coffee shop and added a paper medallion.  I found a cute font and made my own tag. Learn how to make a paper accordion folded medallion in this step by step tutorial.

    Thx so much for the rose coffee sleeve pattern. I’m adding this to my list for gifts to make for Christmas! This’s a great crochet idea that can be done on planes. Thanks again Lou, keep up the great work.

    I put a little spin on this gift. I went to Starbucks and bought a gift card and asked if I could have an empty tall sized cup. I placed the gift card in the cup and put the cellophane wrap around it. Tied it with a bow and placed a tag made from card stock on it. So cute! I can't wait for my daughter to give it to her teacher next week!!

    Thank you for such great ideas!

    I just did this and made the coffee cozy, too. Not the knitted one. I put a homemade muffin on top of the coffee cup before wrapping it up. Instead of putting a gift card inside, I included an "on the go" cappacino mix three different flavored tea packets and a packet of instant oatmeal.

    I LOVE this idea! I also put together a "Thanks a Latte" gift for the elementry school teachers this week. I wish I had seen this idea - it's so cute! My gift card to our local coffee house was put in an envelope with a cute letter printed on apple boarder stationary. I used clip art for some of the words to make it fun. I'll cut and paste my letter here in case anyone wants it for their PTO idea folder (the clip art won't copy).

    Dear (clip art of a open book, apple, etc. that says "teacher" on a chalk board),

    Our (PTO clip art) thinks the (world in the shape of an apple clip art) of you. Thanks A “Latte” (coffee cup clip art)
    For All You Do At Eastside (School house that says "school" below the bell)!

    With Appreciation, (I hand signed the name of our PTO)
