It’s the perfect gift for not only the techies and travel junkies in your life, but anybody who is constantly misplacing their things.
I got my husband a few, that way he can see if he left his keys/wallet/gym bag in the car without having to go there and I can check if he brought the lunch I packed him to work without getting out of bed in the morning.
They are pretty affordable too – at less than $20 when you buy a 4-pack – so I recommend getting a few and attaching to your DIY gifts for a little extra something.
I’m no DIY-er (too lazy for anything too elaborated), but I had fun making these.
I spray painted some mason jar lids gold to make them festive and added a red and white twine with a handwritten red tag attached. Then, I placed each jar in an inexpensive basket with some mixed Christmas shredded paper. Doesn’t it look cute? I’m pretty proud of it!
If I had more time, I’d have added a cute handwritten (or printed) piece of paper with instructions. But it’s okay, as I’m pretty sure everyone knows how to make a cup of hot cocoa (2 tablespoons mix + 1/2 cup milk or water)! 😊
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 cup powdered milk
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Combine all the ingredients in a large airtight container. Shake vigorously to combine and transfer to a mason jar.
- To serve, just combine 2 tablespoons of the mix with ½ cup milk (or water) and bring it to the stove to warm it up for about 3 minutes or until it boils. Add more milk/water as needed and serve!
