DIY Hot Chocolate Gift Idea and Free Printable

Welcome to the Hello Holidays event at Yellow Bliss Road!

For the next three weeks we will be in major Christmas countdown mode here at the Road with tons of holiday inspiration for Christmas crafts, Christmas gift ideas, and Christmas recipes & treats. I’ve got lots of friends stopping by to share some of their favorite projects and I can’t wait for you to see what they are sharing. Please give a big welcome to Alexis!

Hey there! My name is Alexis, and I’m the blogger and crafter behind Persia Lou, my little corner of the internet where I share free crochet patterns, printables, and all of my latest adventures in making. I really love crafting for the holidays, and I especially love making gifts for my friends and family. Today I am sharing a Homemade Hot Chocolate gift idea and free printable to help you put together a cute and simple gift just in time for Christmas!

A couple of years ago I made hot chocolate on a stick as gifts to take to friends and neighbors, and it was a big hit!

Homemade hot chocolate on a stick is so yummy (especially when paired with homemade marshmallows!), but this year I’ve noticed that hot chocolate on a stick is available more widely in stores too. So whether you want to make homemade hot chocolate on a stick or buy it at the store, this is a fun way to package it up into a special gift.

Here’s what you will need:

 Start by printing the tags. I printed the red and turquoise tags on white cardstock and the black and white tags on kraft cardstock.
A pair of scissors and printed gift tags
Cut the tags out, and then punch a hole through the top.

Fill your mug with basket filler, and then top it with your hot chocolate on a stick.

My mug held three sticks, but a larger mug might fit more.

Finally use ribbon or twine to attach the tag to your mug. And that’s it – it’s all ready to gift! This sweet little cup of cheer would make a great gift for friends, neighbors, teachers, and babysitters.

Happy Holidays! I hope you will stop by Persia Lou to check out some of my other Christmas projects!

  1. What are the instructions for making the hot chocolate? Do you use milk or water or a mix of both? These sound really good but I’ve never used anything like this so I don’t know how to use. Thanks.

  2. Love this idea! Do you know how long these stay good? Just trying to figure out when to make them for Christmas. Thanks!
