But these hot chocolate kits are so cute, especially when decorated with a few charming details, making a lovely gift for just about anyone.

Make your gift look even more darling by adding a bit of crocheted lace and decorative buttons. Don’t forget a gift tag with instructions to add 3 tablespoons of the mix to each 8 ounces of water.
Instead of paper or a gift bag, use JarJackets to “wrap” your Mason jars. Sure, they look cute, but they also protect the glass from bumps and slips. And when the hot cocoa mix is all gone, the jars and JarJackets make the perfect combo for taking smoothies, coffee or even lunch to work (JarJackets are dishwasher and microwave safe).
Even better, JarJackets are 100 percent non-toxic and made from earth-friendly materials.
