DIY Coffee Lover’s Gift (With Printable Art!)

December 5, 2017 by Rachel Smith

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for the holidays, or just want to send a pick me up to a friend to brighten their day, this coffee lover’s gift box is the perfect solution – not to mention easy to put together!

You don’t have to spend a ton of money to make people feel loved. To me, it’s really about those small details and handmade touches that go the extra mile. Instead of wrapping pieces individually, pair them together inside of a nice gift box for a greater impact (plus, hello, that means less time spent wrapping and more time spent on other fun things). For example, a bag of coffee is great on its own, but when paired with a monogrammed mug, new scoop, and a fun piece of art, your gift will feel complete and on the next level. And of course, don’t forget the colorful filling to make your items really pop!

And to save you a few bucks this holiday season, you can download the But First, Coffee Printable we used in our gift box for free right here! The file is perfectly sized for printing at home on your personal printer, or if you want a bit higher quality, head to your nearest print center. I ended up printing mine at Staples for less than $1. While you’re at it, you should probably print a copy for yourself!

You can either get a larger gift box so you can give the art framed, or roll the print up and secure with a nice piece of ribbon if you’re looking for a cheaper option. Either way this colorful pop art print is sure to brighten anyone’s kitchen and make your gift box really stand out!

For those of you over achievers/gifters out there, if you’re looking to go the extra mile, pair your box of goodies with a programmable coffee maker ! I mean, is there any better gift than waking up to freshly brewed coffee? Not only does it complement the coffee and mug in the gift box and look great next to the printable artwork, but you can set the coffee to be made before you’ve even gotten out of bed. That my friends is gifting perfection!
