Hot Cocoa Care Package

Hot Cocoa Care Package

Put together a thoughtful hot cocoa care package as an inexpensive gift option.

By: Elizabeth Stark

Thoughtful gifts don’t need to be expensive or difficult to obtain. Craft these clever hot cocoa care packages for easy, personalized gifts without going over your budget. These are perfect for situations that call for small presents –– your co-workers, your kids’ teachers, or far-away relatives –– because they allow you to create a memorable gift on a budget.

A Personal Touch
Before you begin, make a list of the recipients you have in mind. Next, make a list of the items you'd like to include in each. Be creative and consider your own tastes, as well as those of recipients; for instance, you may want to note someone who is gluten-free or really loves chocolate and tailor their packages accordingly.

Impressive Presentation
