Hot Cocoa Gift Mugs

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

I knew the fun Christmas mugs from the Dollar spot would make for great gifts.  I put together and quick and easy gift using the Dollar Spot mugs, hot cocoa packets and toppings for hot cocoa.

To make these gifts I used the fun holiday mugs in the Target Dollar Spot, they were $5 for the 2-pack, which makes them only $2.50 each.

My idea for these mugs was to add some hot cocoa packets and some fun toppings they can add to their hot cocoa or to top off the whip cream on their hot cocoa.

Here are the supplies you will need:

I used plastic storage tubes that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, because I only needed a few, but you can also order the plastic tubes from Amazon if you plan on making several mug gifts.

Because the tops on the containers were a little boring I attached a ribbon to dress them up a bit and make them more festive.

I then used the greenery from the Dollar Spot to bundle them all together.   You can just as easily tie them together with ribbon or string.

For my toppings I used sprinkles, mallow-bits and mini chocolate chips, but I think crushed candy canes would be another great option.  I love peppermint and chocolate together.

I put the toppings in the mug with 2 packets of Ghirardelli hot cocoa mix.

To make gifting easy, I will be wrapping all the mugs in cellophane and attaching one of the tags from the Dollar Spot.
