Caribou Coffee Ornaments 2012

2012 Caribou Coffee’s Holiday Ornaments have a Classic and Whimsy mix of items. They are a very cute bunch I must say so myself.

2012 Holiday Mini To Go Cup

This was a replica of the in-store Holiday To Go Cup that year. The To Go cups might be made of ceramic, but I’m still working on figuring that out for sure. Hopefully I can confirm that in future post for Caribou Coffee.

2012 Cross Fox Ornament

Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Caribou does caution that this is made of sticks and is flammable. It’s nice to see Caribou keeping the customer’s informed.

Caribou Coffee Ornaments and Collectibles 2010-2011

In 2010 Caribou Coffee stopped producing the Cup-O-Cheer mini mugs. They also changed the company logo. While in 2011 the Hand Crafted item’s started. I love that Caribou did hand crafted item’s because I’m a crafter as well, so it makes me appreciate these items even more.

The new look was introduced in 2010. It’s larger then the past collectible ornaments. Almost large enough to fit that shot of espresso in the morning!

Caribou Coffee Ornaments and Collectibles 2005-2009

Let me show you 2005 thru 2009 Caribou Coffee Ornaments.  They really have some of the cutest I’ve ever seen. Each year they have a lot of handcrafted items.

Caribou Coffee Ornaments are hard to find, I’m always on the hunt for them, especially the mini mugs

The ornaments started in store around 2005. I have contacted Caribou Coffee and they were unable to tell me when the first issue was, which I was a bit surprised by.  So off a searching I went.

2005 Cup-O-Cheer Mini Mug with ‘Bou Flake

This seems to be the first release for Caribou Coffee. I have not seen or heard of any previous to 2005. This is a white ceramic mini mug with a’Bou Flake. Referencing the snowflake made up of 6 Caribou heads if you look closely. Red satin hanger

2006 Cup-O-Cheer Red Mini Mug

This festive red ceramic mini mug is adorned with white leaping caribou and snowflakes. The website has it listed as having a white handle, but from what I have seen and confirmed the final design was done in all red as shown in the 2nd photo with the 2007 mini mug

Retail price: unknown

2008 Knit Ornament Ball

I recently purchased these on Ebay knowing I could get to the bottom of what year they were released. After being in touch with my contacts at Mosquito Inc, I have confirmed the date of release is 2008/2009 holiday season. Let me tell you, this company really knows how to reach into the minds of consumers and know what they expect of a brand and a company. Their quality is superb and the designs are gorgeous.

I hope Caribou continues to work with Mosquito Inc in the years to come, because they do not disappoint.  Take a look at the 2011 & 2016 they were also responsible for design and manufacturing of each.

This is a styrofoam ball covered in a red, yellow, and orange knit sweater pattern with yellow knit hanger. It’s a fun cheery ornament although it is quite large as you can see in my tree photo next to an average sized glass ball.

Retail price is unknown at the moment, but I will be sure to update this post if I happen to find out

2008 Stuffed Knit Owl 

I have had this owl in my unknown list for the last 2 years. So when I saw the Knit Ball, I knew they belonged together. I was relieved to finally find this darling owl its right place in the list.

He is stuffed in the same red, yellow, and orange knit sweater pattern but with a red knit hanger. 2 button eyes and adorable orange feet.

Retail price is also unknown at the moment. If you have one and recall the price, please contact me or comment below to let us all know thank you

2009 Cup-O-Cheer Blue Mini Mug

Blue red and white ceramic mini mug with cute critter theme

From what I’ve gathered this seems to be the last of the Cup-O-Cheer Mini Mugs. They doubled in size from here out

Retail price: unknown

2009 Cup-O-Cheer Mug Image

Out of all the items in 2005-2009, These Ornaments I think are the most collectible. Because they are so small and repurposed like the gift card holder, they can easily be lost and discarded if not knowing what it is.

I hope you have found this list helpful so Happy Collecting

Hello World!

Welcome to Coffee House Collectibles.  I started collecting Starbucks Ornaments, and was unable to find a list anywhere. So I figured why not start my own and help those out there like me looking to complete a collection, or find a rare piece. So here I am. I will be compiling lists for coffee houses such as Caribou Coffee, Dunkin Donuts, Peet’s Coffee, Seattle’s Best, Starbucks, and Tim Horton’s.  So stay tuned for future post coming soon.
