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.

    Love this idea ~ but, not sure how to get the printable!?

    • Hey Tamara,
      I found it under her archives of blogs from last December. The active link for the printable sheet is there. Hope that helps!

        Thank you! 🙂

      • Hi Sylvia, How do I find the archived blogs? When I select “blogs”, it takes me back to the same home type page with the info.
        Thanks for any help! 🙂

        • Hi Nancy, if you haven’t found it yet, I clicked on Blog at the top of the page next to About. Then on the right-hand side go to Archives, from there click on December 2015. Then scroll down that page and you will see it. Hope that helps!
