A simple, frugal Christmas gift

My new go-to Christmas gift, courtesy of the lovely, brilliant ladies at Urban Nest:

With a different mug:

Close up of tag with instructions:

This is a fantastically simple and frugal gift.  I got my mugs and treat bags to hold the cafe mocha mix at the dollar store, used curling ribbon I already had, and an editable gift tag I had saved to my computer from last year.  I apologize for ruining the surprise for any of you who may be getting this for Christmas from us but it was too good an idea to not share.  

Here's the recipe straight from Urban Nest:

3/4 cup instant coffee
3T cocoa
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup non-dairy creamer
1/4 cut nonfat dry milk
Mix the ingredients.  Add 2 tablespoons to 6 ounces of hot water.

I doubled the recipe and put about a cup and a half of the mix in each treat bag.   

Happy Christmakwanzukkah!

Cute! I love it. I always like getting crafty things for Christmas rather than more impersonal things (like a gift card).
