This is a white resin mug with red interior. The theme is a dog in a car on his way home for the holidays, with his tree and gifts, the other side is dated with logo and draping ribbon.

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

Sells for $7.99 each

2015 Fair Trade Red Stocking Ornament

This is not only an ornament, but a gift card holder. It’s 2 for 1, how perfect right.

The hand felting and applique snowflake details are also from dZi Inc. dZi emphasizes providing skills and income opportunities to women of greater need. The card holder is made with 100% natural wool and non-toxic, azo-free dyes.  These are also still available for purchase at  Caribou Coffee Online Store

I think this was a nice collection for 2015. The wool animals are so adorable, I’ve already got all mine. I hope you get to add them to your collection as well.

Caribou Coffee Ornament 2007 Newly Found

After last Christmas, I was on my quest to compile a list of Caribou Coffee ornaments and all through my search there was only 1 photo of this little mug.  I had reached out to the photo owner to see if there was a date, but did not receive any response. So I just hung onto the photo til maybe it showed up somewhere. Low and behold one popped up on Ebay.

So you can imagine my joy and excitement when someone posted listed one. I bought it that week as I had to have it. So here it is…..

2007 Cup-O-Cheer with Orange Ornament

How cute is this…I love beach tones too. This has an orange and red ornament with an off set white outline.  Then the Caribou Coffee logo on the back with the year 2007.

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.

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

White Mini Mug with 'Bou Flake


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

***UPDATE 12/5/2016***

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
