Every year the holidays roll around and in addition to the many gifts and treats I make for friends and family, I always seem to forget about my co-workers. Fortunately after starting to work as real adult five years ago I started giving out these little jars of heaven that are super easy and relatively inexpensive to make. I love that they are homemade and therefore convey an extra special touch most store bought gifs seem to lack. They also don't take much time and look adorable. I have always used the mason jar gift for hot cocoa and toppings but I have also seen people do it with ingredients for cookies or other baked goods, with the recipe/instructions on the little tag. I also think a little self care kit would be cute too, like filling the jar with small but necessary things like chapstick, tissue paper, bubble bath, etc. I also once made candles in the jar, but that might require a bit more labor and time. So here's what I do with mine, I just add the following items in the following order, wrap with a ribbon, a candy cane and cute message card. I wrote a little message with this gold marker and used my M monogram stamp in gold to give it a more personal touch. Enjoy!

fill the mason jar with
1. decadent hot cocoa mix
3. milk chocolate chips
4. crushed candy canes

And if you love the idea but don't have time, you can buy pre-made ones here!

Stay Cozy,
