Caribou Coffee Ornament’s 2015

Here we are in the end of 2015 and this is the first year I am right on track with all releases.

Caribou went back to Nepal to provide us with adorable Fair Trade ornaments again this year. The hand felting and applique details are done by a women’s felting business in Kathmandu. This is the same artisan who produced the 2013 ornaments.

They always put such great thought and care into choosing who they get the ornament’s from. This show’s how big of a heart Caribou has for the world. And I love that!!

2015 Fair Trade Wool Handmade Animals

All Ornaments are made with 100% natural wool, and non-toxic, azo-free dyes. The wool scraps are recycled into new products. The animal’s are a Hedgehog, Polar Bear, Raccoon, and Caribou of course.

These are handmade in Nepal by a Fair Trade artisan group called dZi Inc. Using natural woolen fibers and earth friendly dyes.  All purchases support artisans, their families and communities. It also provides employment in a safe and healthy environment. dZi Inc. is a founding member of Fair Trade Federation.  These are also still available for purchase at  Caribou Coffee Online Store

Both sold for $4.95 each in the US

2010 Snow Globe Mug Ornaments from Japan

Japan is just as obsessed with Starbucks as the United States. They release some really cool merchandise. Japan released 6 Snow Globe Ornaments in 2010

  • Red Latte To Go Cup on top of a White Mug
  • Snow Day Kid on top of a Red Mug with Candy Cane Handle
  • Reindeer on top of a Green Mug with Swirls
  • Rocking Horse on top of a White Mug with Decorated Tree’s
  • Reindeer 2 on top of a White Mug with Candy Cane Handle


What a list eh!!! 2010 was fun to research since I got to explore outside of the United States. I was surprised to see how many were sold in other countries during my research. I think you’ll enjoy them, so keep checking back or follow my blog if you want to be updated.

If my friend’s reading this from Japan, know of any more to be added please send me a message, I’d love to hear about it and add to my library

Have a wonderful weekend my fellow coffee collectors out there.

Hey everyone….I hope those who celebrated Thanksgiving here in the US are feeling as full as I am. Time for the holiday shopping spree’s, discounts, and fun. Well sometimes fun. I’m putting up the tree this week, and in the Christmas and Holiday Spirit. Falalalalala

2006 was a huge advertising year for Starbucks. They released a total of 16 Ornaments and a bunch of collectible pottery and plush pieces. They started the Architectural Collectible Series of Mini Mug Ornaments, all featuring Local destinations in the US. They also had published a holiday catalog filled with goodies to preview the merchandise.

2007 was a not as large and they only released 5 ornaments that I could locate. But they still are just as wonderful as any previous year Starbucks released ornaments. 🙂

Starbucks released 9 ceramic mini mugs for this Local series at $5.95 each. All sold separately in a reusable box. Each box provides details on the Local city listed on the mug. Such as Elevation, Land Area, Avg. Annual Rainfall, Avg. Daily Temperature, and a little bottom note about the destination.

2006 Topiary Mug Ornament

This little plastic ornament was the black sheep this year. It doesn’t seem to really fit, but I still love the ornament and style. Topiary Mugs were a fantastic idea. They did a whole series with the Topiary’s for 2006 in the Holiday catalog which I have attached.

2006-felt-tree-ornament-gift-set12006 Felt Flat Tree Ornament Gift Set2

2006 Small Flat Felt Tree Ornament

This is the 3rd Felt tree ornament. I was confused for the longest time because I always thought the tiny tree was in the Coffee & Cookies Gift Pack. But after realizing that the small tree didn’t have the 2006 tag but does have a tag that says “Remove Tag Before Product Use” tells me that this was on something as an accessory. After researching these last few weeks I came upon a few 2006 Holiday Tumbler’s that did have it. It seems it was only a select few styles, but I am also not sure if they were put on all the tumbler’s or if only like a promo, they got a few for each store and put it on random ones.

Most of the Tumblers were $12.95 up to $14.95. If you were lucky enough to purchase one and get this, it is a rare treat. This is the 1st Starbucks ornament which does not have any markings or year tag. It’s so tiny and adorable it is almost lost in the mountain of Starbucks ornament releases, but now you know 🙂


2006 Felt Stockings filled with Treats

I am going to start including stockings into the Ornaments list each year if they are small enough such as gift card holder and treat filled stockings.

These were tiny food filled stocking’s that they also advertised in the catalog. These are so small, I would include them on a tree and put surprises inside for the kids as a little extra treat.

1 – Red with White Trim and Ball Pom on toe tip was filled with Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans Sold for $5.95

2- Red with White Stripes was filled with Biscotti Biscuits Sold for $5.95

3 – Red with 4 White Button and Star on toe tip, filled with Candy Cane Sticks Sold for $3.95

2006 Assorted Candy Filled Stockings

Sold for Unknown

2007 Red Cup Penguin Snow Globe Ornament

I love this ornament. 2007 Starbucks released the penguin on a lot of it’s pottery so naturally they would release a penguin ornament.

This is a Red Abbey mug with snowflakes, topped with a Skiing Red Penguin in the Snow Globe. I’m not sure if this was sold in the US or not. So if someone is reading this and actually purchased one here, please let me know, I’d love to update my notes. But I believe this was sold in Taiwan.

Sold for Unknown

This one is very hard to find, they recently sold on Ebay in November 2015 for $59.95 each.

2007 Cup with Globe Penguin

I hope you have enjoyed this list of 2006 and 2007 Ornament’s. I need the Penguin from 2007 but refuse to pay that much on Ebay.
