    Default The gift of warmth

    I am giving this to my two good friends this year:

    Cheap basket (dollar tree) with the following inside:

    Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix (I'm putting my mexican hot cocoa mix)
    A holiday mug (dollar tree)
    Polar Fleece scarf (each one costs under in material and takes me 20 minutes to make)

    Hand Warmers (Hot Hands, available at walmart in the hunting section: $2 for 2 packs)

    Tag will read: Wishing you Warmth this Christmas

    Thumbs up

    What a nice idea. Economical & thoughtful. May try this for those 'always cold' family members. Thanks.

    my mother in law was talking about how she does something similar to this.. instead of making scarfs, she buys them from goodwill during the summer, and braids 2 or 3 of them together and makes the "wrapping" paper for the basket for whomever. i think it's a great idea for everyone.
