Christmas is so close that Santa has already packed his bags and loaded the sled. If you need a last minute Christmas gift, don’t panic. We’ve got several good ideas for you right here!

Hot Cocoa Kits

Nary a child exists who doesn’t love a mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter day. Gather 3-5 small jars or containers. Fill one with hot cocoa mix and the others with all sorts of extras like marshmallows, peppermints or sprinkles. Anything goes! For the adults, you may want to throw in a tiny bottle of Kahlua or Peppermint Schnapps, too. Decorate with ribbon, bows and a note as sweet as the drink mix.

Chalkboard Mug

This creative gift is a great companion to the hot cocoa kits. Using painter’s tape, wrap the upper half of a mug in a straight, horizontal line. Paint the bottom half with chalkboard paint, let dry and then remove the tape. Now your recipient will be able to write notes or play tic-tac-toe while he or she sips a beverage. Also, don’t forget to gift it with a piece of chalk!

Movie Night Kit

Movies lovers young and old will get a lot of use out of this one! Arrange a few DVDs—themed if you’d like—plus popcorn, candy, and sodas in a large popcorn but. Give it to your favorite film buff or a newlywed couple. You just gave the gift of a memorable, cozy night in!
