This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BIC®. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I have the time, I love giving personalized, handmade, or DIY gifts for the holidays.  When I have the time being the key phrase there.  With as busy as it gets this time of year, I just don’t always get the chance.

DIY Coffee Lover Gifts: "You're the Cream to my Coffee" #BICMerryMarking

If you’d like to do something a little personal this year without a lot of time commitment then I have some cute ideas from BIC for you.  They are spreading joy this season with BIC’s Month of Merry Marking using BIC® Mark-It™ permanent markers and just a few other supplies.  They’re really easy projects that have a personal touch, making them great gift options.

BIC® Mark-It™ permanent markers come in a veritable sea of colors, including 36 packs for fine and ultra fine tips and 8 packs of metallic colors.  One of the colors in the 36 pack is #HoneyBrown, the perfect shade of brown if you’d like to make a gift for the coffee lover in your life.

Card Stock

Cut a piece of card stock into your desired shape (if you have a fancy cutting machine go ahead and get creative).

"You are the Cream to my Coffee" DIY Coffee Lover Gifts with #BICMerryMaking

Use a Honey Brown marker to sketch out a cute message. For a friend or loved one you might try “You’re the Cream to my Coffee” or “Love is Brewing”. For a teacher, the mail person, or someone else you might use “Thanks a Latte”.

Once your card id sketched out, pair it with a coffee shop gift card, and you’re done! Instant smile-maker.  So why not get the booklet of merry marking and a coupon to start marking!  Make up a few for Thanksgiving, then stick a few in your bag for when you bump into the perfect recipient while you’re out and about.

I’d love to see what you call come up with, too!  I’d specifically like to nominate my friend Emily, my Aunt Sherri, and my sis-in-law Abby to do some #BICMerryMarking this month.  Let’s see what you’ve got!

Whom would you give DIY coffee lover gifts to?
