Mug Christmas Gift

Of course, tasteful mugs make great Christmas gifts too. Add a packet or two of hot chocolate mix (or hot chocolate bomb), a pretty spoon and wrap it up. Or, for tea lovers, add a few tea bags, a mini gingerbread mug hugger and spoon.

You can even find hot chocolate stirrers, Christmas marshmallows and more (shop below). Be creative!

Gifts in a mug are an easy and inexpensive idea for teachers, coworkers, neighbours, friends and more. Keep the recipients in mind to create something they’ll enjoy.

This tea latte is creamy, frothy and sweet, with notes of citrus and bergamot. The subtle hint of lavender not only lifts the overall flavour of this hot milk drink, but makes it pretty and calming too.

Dried Mint Tea

Use dried mint leaves to brew a flavourful cup of hot tea. Naturally caffeine-free and soothing on the tummy, this is my go-to drink in the evening all winter long.

Spiked Apple Cider

If you’re like me and love anything apple, this easy spiked apple cider cocktail is one to try. I love the subtle spices mixed with the fresh apple goodness. Here, it’s shown cold, but it’s even better served hot on chilly days.
