Hostess Gifts or Treats for Party Guests

I made these as hostess gifts
and treats for my Christmas guests.   


I wanted to put something together that was fun and personalized.  The Merry Christmas signs and toppers were made by Serena at Rylie Boo Events.  I recently won a fabulous giveaway from Serena.  Her stuff is adorable! I can't wait to use it all again this weekend!


I purchased Starbucks coffee and hot chocolate to put in the boxes.  The paper cups and straws are from Garnish.  I could spend a fortune on that website.


I made the ornaments.  No, they aren't fancy.  But they are personalized!  That counts, right?



Overall, these were pretty inexpensive to make/create.  Even though they weren't pricey, they are pretty fun.  I also baked (which I hate to do) peppermint cookies.  These cookies are my MOST FAVORITE cookies.  I can't tell you how good they are.  I just wish I was better at making them. 


Seriously, I can't have those cookies in my house without supervision. 


This would be a pretty simple thing to throw together for Christmas hostess gifts, neighbors, or winter gifts.  You could always paint hearts on the cups for Valentine's Day.


Happy Hump Day!
