A Cup of Christmas COCOA {cute, fun, affordable gift idea & FREE printable gift tags}

A Cup of Christmas Cocoa
I love finding creative, affordable and fun Christmas gift ideas, especially those that keep Christ at the center of Christmas. 
Several years ago, my friend Tracie shared the cutest idea using the word COCOA written on a gift tag and tied to a Christmas mug. It went something like this:

C is for CHRIST, the reason for Christmas!

O is for ORNAMENTS that decorate our tree and remind us to decorate our hearts and homes with God’s love.

C is for CELEBRATE as we give gifts and remember all God has given us.

O is for OVERJOYED! Instead of letting our hearts feel overwhelmed with the busy season, let’s choose to be overjoyed with the facts that Jesus was born.

A is to remind us that in the ABUNDANCE of holiday activities what we really need is the abundant life Jesus offers through a relationship with Him.

To use this acronym for a gift tag, click and save the image above download this FREE printable with 4 tags on each page.
