Getting from one place to another in the winter, while keeping your coffee hot, is one of life's daily dilemmas. Some coffee shops give out the thin cardboard versions but they mostly protect you from the liquid. These DIY versions are both nice to look at, and keep things toasty. Here's to keeping warm this winter!

Above, Mason jar wraps from A Beautiful Mess are lovely and make great gifts for the leather lovers in your life.

If you’ve held onto a flannel shirt since the 1990s, and it’s time to let it go, try cutting them up and fashioning them into some cozy wraps for your cups. These were made by ThriftDee.

A monogram is a nice and easy detail to add if you’re giving it as a gift. Sugar N Cloth made this one with a felt handle.
