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.
With sweet goodies like this for giving, life really is a party!
