We are getting closer and closer to the big day, December 25th, and you might be realizing you forgot a few people on your list! What do you get your co-workers, kid's teachers or neighbors for the Holiday's that won't break the bank?
Well, I have a cute idea for you! These little Hot Chocolate Mugs! They're really simple to make and you can find all the supplies at your local Dollar Tree!
All you need is:
-Mugs (Make sure it says Microwaveable safe on the bottom.)
-Hot Chocolate packages
-Cellophane (This one I actually had on hand)
-Something to close the top. (You could use ribbon, pipe cleaners or anything else you can think of)
First thing's first, you put your hot chocolate packs into the mug. I would probably put 2-3 in each, depending how many people you are giving them to and how much money you would like to spend.
I then cut up some tissue paper into little squares and placed them around the Chocolate packs to fill in the empty spaces.
Next, take your cellophane and cut it into the size you need. Make sure you measure it and have enough to stick up on top. Once you cut it, gather the corners first and lift them up to the top over the cup so they reach evenly over the cup. Tuck the sides in and tape them down. Gather the cellophane tie it together, I used a twisty for this. Finally, add your ornament to it and maybe even a name tag and you are all done!
I gave these to some of my co-workers and they loved them! I now plan to give these to my daughter's teachers! Best part is it cost me less than $10 for 5! Woohoo!
What do you think about these little mugs? Do you have any other cheap and easy gift ideas? I'd love to hear your ideas and thoughts in the comments below.
