Hot Chocolate Gift Basket Ideas
One of the keys to an inexpensive, yet impressive gift is the packaging. I love that the bulk food store 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 the dollar store too. 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.
Adding Label Tags
I made some simple little brown paper tags, and attached them to the mason jars with more aqua baker’s twine.
Wood Tray Instead Of A Gift Basket
I put everything together in a little wooden tray, also from the dollar store, that I painted aqua with some craft paint and filled with some silver basket filler.
With a hot chocolate gift basket like this for giving, life really is a party!

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