Still trying to figure out what to give your child's teacher, a co-worker or neighbor for Christmas? These inexpensive gift mugs are perfect! My son started preschool this year, and I wanted him to be able to give his teacher and other staff members nice gifts that don't look cheap. This is what I came up with!

Curling ribbon

I purchased these mugs from the Dollar Tree. Initially I was going to get solid red mugs, but when I walked into the store these cute Christmas mugs were staring me in the face and they were just too cute to pass up. The cellophane also came from the Dollar Tree.

You can buy individual hot cocoa mix from almost any grocery store, and the candy came from Target. I recommend getting nice chocolate like Godiva, Ghirardelli, or Lindor Truffles. You can add a lot of candy, or just a little bit. Completely up to you!

Once everything is in the mug, wrap the cellophane around it then tie it with curling ribbon. 

And voilĂ !!!! A beautiful gift mug that takes under five minutes to make.
