Surprise Dad this Father’s Day with a DIY Coffee Gift

Nothing says love on Father’s Day like a handmade gift. Paige Dell'Armi, who works on Starbucks digital marketing team, shares an easy craft for dads using vintage-inspired mason jars, repurposed materials, and Starbucks® coffee.

“I wanted to create a fun Father’s Day gift for Dads who love coffee,” Dell’Armi said. "Blue mason jars – which were popular a century ago – are back and can now be easily found at craft retailers, grocery stores, and even hardware stores.”



  • Small Starbucks® to-go bag
  • Whole-bean or ground Starbucks® coffee (scoop 2 cups coffee per pint)
  • Starbucks Card
  • Mason jar (pint-size jar shown)
  • 1 yard twine or narrow ribbon
  • Glue or double-stick tape


Scissors, hole punch, permanent marker, pencil


  1. Using the scissors, remove one shopping bag handle, set aside.
  2. Make two circle cutouts from the shopping bag, tracing first around the mason jar lid in pencil.
  3. Use first circle cutout to create label on top of jar, decorate with marker, affix using glue or double-stick tape. Use second circle for gift tag.
  4. Scoop coffee into mason jar and screw on lid (2 cups per pint).
  5. Punch single hole in top left corner of Starbucks Card, and top-middle section of gift tag.
  6. Wrap handle from shopping bag around neck of mason jar and tie. Secure Starbucks Card and gift tag with twine.


Whole bean (unground) coffee will stay fresh in a mason jar or other sealed container up to 7 days. Ground coffee should be enjoyed within 24 hours.
