There is no doubt that this coffee cup sweater is adorable and such a perfect gift. But how can your coffee connoisseur possibly enjoy their favorite drink without dribbling excess liquid onto their sweater? Help them out by crocheting a smaller sweater for easy access and enjoyment of their piping hot espresso.

These painted plates are absolutely adorable for decorations and gifts; but probably not for eating. Ensure that you're buying nontoxic spray paint, or head to a local ceramics shop to paint and bake your favorite party ware. Your guests will thank you for it.
