Deck the Halls…and Your Sleeves!


The weather outside is approaching frightful and traffic in your shop is picking up! People come in, not just to heat themselves with a warm beverage, but to boost energy for shopping, escape from family members and to take part in the holiday spirit! Make your guests’ trip to the coffee shop an enjoyable one. Below are some tips on how to do just that!


Deck the Halls!

  • How about putting up a mini Christmas tree complete with tinsel and ornaments? Twinkling lights, bushy wreaths, red and green bows, and festive coffee sleeves…anything to make your little shop feel cozy. Finally, no holiday themed coffee shop is complete without Christmas music 24/7! Put together the perfect playlist (leaving some of the more annoying classic holiday songs like Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer to a minimum.)

Merry Specialty Drinks

  • Some flavors to try: Eggnog, peppermint, cinnamon, gingerbread, spiced rum, cranberry, raisin, pecan pie, sugar cookie, pumpkin, oatmeal, chocolate fudge…etc. Mix and match any of these flavors. Get creative with your lattes and cappuccinos and don’t forget the classic hot cocoa!

Fun Competitions

  • Just a few ideas:
    • Ugly sweater competition – anyone who wears an ugly sweater gets a percentage off their order
    • Social media contest– have customers post a picture of your coffee and tag your business for a chance to win prizes (bonus: have them take a picture of your coffee sleeves customized with your festive-themed business name)
    • Christmas karaoke – host a karaoke night and the winner gets a mega prize
    • Tree decorating contest– ask customers to donate to a charity and if they do, they can have their picture on an ornament put up on your coffee shop Christmas tree

Sponsor a charity

  • The holidays are about giving and customers will appreciate seeing their favorite coffee shop taking part this year. Pick out a charity that is special to you and donate money. To go above and beyond that, ask patrons to donate with each order as well.

And sleeves, of course!

  • What better way to brand and to spread holiday cheer than with a custom sleeve that festive and fun?! Look below for some inspiration…
