Hot Chocolate Hostess Gift

a-Hostess Gifts Under $10 047

Today I’m sharing another gift idea for under $10, perfect for a host, hostess, neighbour, or friend.


One of the keys to an inexpensive, yet impressive gift is the packaging. I love that the Bulk Barn carries several different flavours of hot chocolate mix. I bought some and then put them into cute little mason jars, because everything looks good in a mason jar. 😉

I also added some candy canes, and a few different kinds of marshmallows.

I picked up some chocolate spoons at Dollarama. Here’s a pic of the package so you know what to look for. I used these in a hot chocolate buffet for an event last year and they were a big, big hit, so I thought they’d be fun to add to this gift. I took them out of the box and wrapped them up individually in cello bags and tied them with baker’s twine.

I made some simple little brown paper tags, and attached them to the mason jars with more aqua baker’s twine.

I put everything together in a little wooden tray, also from the dollar store, that I painted aqua and filled with some silver basket filler.

  1. Very nice gift idea! Where do you buy all your mason jars?

  2. You can get mason jars at places like Home Hardware, Walmart, or Zellers. I picked these up, with the diamond pattern, in the States. I haven’t been able to find them here in Canada. Hope that helps.

  3. Love the idea!
