Hey guys…..So it has been quite a while since my last post. In that time I have had to move and also go through the motions of a parent being diagnosed with cancer, so needless to say I lost my focus for a bit.
However the holidays are creeping upon us ever so quickly and realized I have not added any posts for Tim Hortons. If you have never heard of them, they are a Canadian Coffee and Bake Shop that was founded in 1964 by Hockey Player Tim Horton and Jim Charade. In 2014 Burger King purchased Tim Hortons so hopefully they don’t ruin this authentic long standing chain’s Canadian vibe
Tim Hortons is known for it’s Coffee and Donuts and they have there very own donut holes called Timbits. They do have multinational locations from USA, UK, Philippines and Middle East. So keep an eye out and check around the holidays they have cute ornaments.
So let’s see what is on the menu for all the Tim Horton’s Ornaments from 2009-2016.
Maurice at Tim Horton’s sent me a full list of all the Holiday Merchandise from 2001-2015 and the first ornament to appear was in 2009.
2009 Coffee Pot Ornament
The theme for 2009 was “Every Cup Has a Story” so naturally if your holiday merchandise is a mug, then you must have an ornament that is a coffee pot right?
First let me just say that Tim Hortons did not skimp on quality on this ornament. On this ornament that is 3/4 full with what appears to be coffee inside, is there logo and marked for 12:25. Just like they do in the stores so that you know what time that pot was brewed. why don’t all coffee houses do this? That would be so nice to see.
This is packaged in an open face box and has a satin red hanger
2009 Employee Exclusive Ornament
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this exclusive ornament from an ex-employee. What a great idea and actually makes this one very collectible due to it’s limited numbers produced since not sold in stores.
This is a glass engraved ornaments with gold hanger and comes in a black box.
“It’s a beaut clark!!!”
2010 Take Out Mug
The following year Tim’s took the To Go Cup ornament route and this couldn’t have been created better.
It is ceramic with holiday red tones and the classic Tim Hortons Logo and has a red satin cordage. This came packages in a red box. Box is printed with 2009 but sold in 2010 confirmed by Maurice in customer service
2011 In Rest White Mug
In 2011 Tim’s released 2 ornaments. The first is what they call the In Rest Mug.
This mug is porcelain I think with what looks like rippling coffee and red satin hanger mine is currently packed away. The coffee looks so realistic
2011 Timbit Snowman
How adorable something I always wished DD had done but hasn’t.
This is a resin 3 Timbit Snowman that is made up of chocolate base, glazed middle and powdered head. Complete with red striped scarf and the Timbits logo
2012 Sledding Timbit
Tim’s went ahead and released 2 again in 2012 which I’m sure the customers were excited about since the previous year was so unique and adorable.
This single Timbit on a sled getting ready for a wild ride. This ornament has a few textures on it’s design, from the glazed goggles and snow hat, to the wooden matte painted sled and the sparkly snow underneath.
2012 Cafe & Bake Store
Tim’s moved away from the coffee and Timbit theme and came up with a store release.
This is mini lit store during winter with a Snowman leaving while on his run for coffee. Hand-painted resin, glittering snow and hung with a red satin cord
Now as much as enjoy this mini store replica, I’m really disappointed in it’s quality. Not sure who they chose to make this version but I would have asked them for a redo. None the less it is still an adorable piece in the collection
2013 Holiday To Go Cup Version 1
This year Tim’s I think went back to the original manufacturer because the quality is back up
A ceramic to go cup depicting boys having a game of hockey on the pond as the girls sleigh-ride and make a snowman on the other side. Complete with a black flip top lid
Version 1 has no striping behind the Tim Hortons Logo, has French language and Cafe on bottom
2013 Holiday To Go Cup Version 2
Same as above but Version 2 has a different Tim Hortons Logo and says Cafe & Bake Shop. This might have been the US Version but I have not been able to confirm this
2014 Timbit 20pk Box
Yeah another Timbits ornament. That is something else Tim’s does very well, they make the packaging just as attractive and festive
This is a plastic decal’d Timbits Box hung with a red satin cord
2015 Snow Globe Ornament
I have a thing for Starbucks snow globes and I was thrilled with this little Tim Hortons release. This is another high quality ornament from Tim’s
Glass Snow Globe with Plastic Base, depicting a brick and mortar Tim Horton’s Store
2016 Coffee Sack Ornament
This brings us to the last of the list for now, but in a few months we will see what is in store for 2017. Last year I think Tim’s really missed the mark most of all. So I’m hoping they redeem themselves this year.
Resin burlap coffee sack filled to the top and over flowing with coffee beans. with a red satin ribbon hanger
This is still an adorable ornament, but I know that Tim’s could have done a lot better.
I hope you have enjoyed this full post of Tim Horton’s Ornaments. I can’t wait to see what they plan for 2017.
