Last Minute Personal Gift

I wanted to give my sons teacher and teacher’s aid a gift for Christmas. He’s a little rambunctious one and my husband and I just love how they have clicked with him since the start of the year. We had our term parent teacher conference last month and they said they loved him. Aside from wanting to be a dinosaur 24/7 which they worked with him on.

We tried daycare in the past but it never worked. He needed a more structured environment. We decided we wanted to do something special for them. Originally I wanted to do the hot chocolate ornaments. We went to store purchased everything and was ready to do them. Then walking into Christmas Tree Shops it was a done deal. I decided to use these cute fill ups instead. They had dozens of different designs. They were only $3.99 each. Using these with the same inspiration of hot cocoa ornaments was still a great way  to display a personal touch.

Hot Cocoa Decor


Ingredients used:

1 Can of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Cocoa Mix

1 Bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows

1 Bag of Hershey Chocolate Chips


Layer half of inside of bulb with hot cocoa mix

This is a great gift for anyone that is on your list last minute. Need a Yankee swap? This adds a personal touch.
