by | May 23, 2019 | Gift Guide, Inspiration

Looking for some thoughtful and out of the box gift ideas? Well, look no further! In honour of our newly launched Latte mugs, we’re going to be showing you some examples of simple, thoughtful and creative mug gift ideas. Not only are they super fun and easy to make; they also make for the perfect gift for any occasion!

 

 For the Coffee Lovers.

Place in a few packets of their favourite brand of coffee, some sugar and a wooden stir sticks into a personalised latte mug and voila! You’ve got yourself a simple but adorable gift for the coffee lover in your life. 

Pro Tip: Shred some brown or coloured paper and tuck it around the mug’s contents to makes the whole thing look prettier.

For the Tea Drinkers. 

For friends and family who enjoy tea over coffee, place some tea bags (get a variety so they’ll have something new to try!), sugar packets and maybe a cookie or two into a mug.

Pro Tip: To make a gift for a friend who is feeling a little under the weather, fill your mug with Honey, Lemon, Ginger lemon tea bags, lozenges, a hand sanitizer and a packet of tissues. A perfectly thoughtful gift for a friend who could use a mug of cheer!

For the Hot Chocolate Aficionado.

Here’s a fun DIY gift for the people in your life who prefer hot chocolate as opposed to either tea or coffee! First off, you’ll need a treat bag. Next, layer in a hot chocolate mix, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows before tying the bag up securely with some string, twine or ribbons.

Don’t forget to include the instructions on how to make the hot chocolate before placing the treat bag into the mug and gifting it.

Pro Tip: You can write the instructions on how to make the hot chocolate onto a gift tag and attach it to the ribbon tying off the treat bag to make it look prettier.

For the Microwave Baker.

If you think it’s impossible to bake a 5-minute cake in a microwave, then you would be wrong. Our next gift mug idea does just that and it’s perfect for someone who likes baked goods but doesn’t have an oven. 

All you have to do is fill a treat bag with ingredients for a mug cake (check out 25 Easy Mug Cake Recipes for inspiration), tie it off with bakers twine and placed the treat bag into the mug before gifting it. 

Pro Tip: Include a card with the instructions on how to make the cake and tie it to the mug’s handle to make it look nicer. 

For the Chocolate Connoisseur.

If you know someone who has a serious sweet tooth, then they will definitely enjoy receiving this creative gift. Fill a treat bag with an assortment of their favourite chocolates and candy. If you want the gift to have a hint of nostalgia to it, make sure to include the chocolates they adored as a child into the mix. Tie it off nicely with ribbons and present the treat with the mug.

Pro Tip: Add some shredded paper at the bottom of the mug to add volume and ensure that your treat bag doesn’t sink too deeply into the mug. 

For the Artsy Ones.

Do you have a friend who is really into arts and crafts? If the answer is yes, simply fill up the Latte Mug with practical things that you know they’ll love. From scrapbooking supplies and watercolours to knitting needles and spools of yarn. The possibilities are endless!

Pro Tip: If your giftee is a painter, have a little fun and design a mug that says ‘Not Paint Water’. You’d be surprised to find out the number of times an artist has confused their paint water for their drinks!

For the Strategist.

For Those With A Sweet Tooth.

If you’re a baker yourself, here’s a simple gift idea for the people in your lives who adore your baking. Whip up some mini cookies, croissants, cakes, or brownies and package them in a treat bag. Place them into a mug and give it to your intended recipient. Not only will they be able to enjoy your delicious baked goods, but you’ve also provided them with a vessel for them to their preferred drinks! 


And that concludes our list of Creative Latte Mug gift ideas. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading through the list and that we’ve managed to inspire you on your gifting journey. Don’t forget, you can also make a personalised latte mug for yourself. Simply follow this link, design your mug and we’ll take care of the rest.
