I love a simple and unique gift idea. Something you can use that is dressed up just right. Whether giving or receiving, it makes your mouth curve in to a smile and you feel a little warm fuzzy inside. You know what else make you feel warm inside? Hot Chocolate. Who doesn’t love curling up with a mug of steaming chocolate on a cold day?! Pair that with a holiday icon (the ornament) to make these Hot Cocoa ornaments and you’ve got a winner for a feel good gift idea!
I saw this idea of putting drinks in ornaments and thought why not take it a step further and use the ornaments to hold the mix as well! Just grab a funnel and fill the ornaments with crushed candy canes, hot chocolate mix, and mini marshmallow bits. Attach little snowflake clips or ribbon tied in to bows to dress them up a bit. Place them in a box with paper shreds to cushion them and include a few striped paper straws tied with twine.
Include a picture of the ornaments as glasses in the box so recipients know they can not only use the ingredients to make hot chocolate, but the ornaments to drink from too! You may want to warn them that the hot chocolate should be warm, but not scalding if drinking from a glass ornament and not a mug.
Tie up the gift box with some cute twine, add a little embellishment, and you are good to go. A super cute hot chocolate ornament gift perfect for neighbors, friends, or teachers that takes only minutes to put together!
Pair the hot chocolate ornaments with a blanket and a thermos of hot water for a cozy date night too!
