It’s time again for teacher gift giving! And from what I’ve seen over my years as a mom, there are two things most teachers love – coffee and gift cards! The Happy Handle Coffee Cozy combines those two, with a special handmade touch to show your gratitude for all their hard work – and it’s the latest free crochet pattern on Moogly!
Of course, it isn’t just teachers who like coffee – this cozy is great to gift to anyone who loves a beverage to go… including yourself! It’s quick to whip up and fun to use and give. The handle is just the right size for slipping in a gift card to their favorite coffee shop – and for holding onto your favorite cuppa morning (or afternoon) goodness!
