Neighbor Christmas Gift Idea

Christmas can be such a busy time of year, so I love it when I find an easy, thoughtful gift to give to my neighbors and friends. This is one of my all time favorite hot drinks for the holidays. A friend gave me the recipe years ago, and now we make it every year! It tastes like egg nog…but lighter on the calories! And it makes a wonderful gift. Everybody raves about the creamy, cinnamon flavor. Add in some cute packaging, and you have an easy gift idea for your neighbors! {that tastes delicious!}

This was our neighbor gifts for last Christmas, but with the hustle and bustle around the holidays, I didn’t get a chance to post it. So its making a debut this year :)

I found those awesome wood scoops and white kraft paper bags online and knew they’d be perfect for my Cinnamon Milk Mix! I used some festive washi tape in red and green and bakers twine. I think they turned out super cute! I used my Silhouette CAMEO and printable metallic foil to create the labels.

Speaking of Silhouette CAMEO, did you enter the Cameo giveaway I posted yesterday?

      I got them on Pick Your Plum last year. But I did a search on etsy for “wood scoop” and there were tons available :)
