Supplies Needed

Hot Cocoa Packets: Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Packets are pretty easy to find at any grocery store if you are only planning on whipping up a handful of gifts but Costco and BJ's will have bulk packs if you plan to put a lot of these together. Amazon link to purchase:

Dehydrated Marshmallows: These Vanilla Dehydrated Mini Marshmallow Bits have a fresh and delicious flavor, perfect for hot cocoa. Amazon link to purchase:

Mini Food-Safe Pouches: Perfect for scooping a heaping serving of the dehydrated marshmallows. Amazon link to purchase:

Blue Organza Bags (5x7): I am obsessed with these bags for little gifts. They are pretty, sheer to see the gift and also have the drawstrings to make gifts easy to hang from a doorknob. These are a staple to have on hand in lots of colors. Blue works great for the winter gifts. Amazon link to purchase:

Curling Ribbon: Colors of light blue, teal blue or royal blue will work. I used Robin's Egg here in my sample. Amazon link to purchase:

Warm Wishes Pop-By Gift Tag: The tag is all designed for you as a Canva Template right here in the online shop to purchase or Relationship Marketing Club members will find the template link right in the member catalog. Here is the link to purchase the tag:

Hot Cocoa Pop-By Gift Assembly

  1. Prepare all supplies close at hand including a scoop for the dehydrated marshmallows.

  2. Punch hole in tag and pre-loop the ribbon onto the tag (it's a little easier to attach to the drawstring if predone).

  3. Open food safe pouch and fill comfortably below the ziploc and seal.

  4. Place two hot cocoa packets in organza bag with the dehydrated marshmallow pouch.

  5. Pull drawstring and attach the tag close to the scrunched center of the pouch. Curl the ribbon and your all done!

Estimated cost of this gift is approx. $2.50 each.
