Sometimes it’s nice to have a go to project when you just want to say “thank you” with a handmade gift. In my book, a handmade thank you gift is something quick and easy. No fuss. This is why a coffee cozy makes a great thank you gift. It’s both of those things- quick and easy.
Personally, I like to make them for my kid’s teachers at the end of the year as a small appreciation gift. Sometimes I’ll even buy a little mug (usually from the Dollar Store), and then make them a coffee cozy to go with it. Combine that with a thank you card and a Starbucks gift card, and you’ve got yourself a teacher who finally feels appreciated!
I don’t know about you, but if I were a teacher, (while I would appreciate their thoughtfulness) I think the whole apple themed everything gifts would get old real quick. I’m proud to say, I’ve never bought my kid’s teachers anything with an apple on it. No offense if you have, I just want to provide them with someone variety:)
If you sell at your local Farmer’s Market or craft fairs, this would also be a quick sew and has the potential to be a good profit maker. Feel free to use this free pdf pattern to make coffee cozies for gifts, craft fairs, or to sell finished coffee cozies on Etsy.
