Gifting Season: DIY Chocolate Lovers Gift Box

Gifting Season: DIY Chocolate Lovers Gift Box
Public Lives, Secret Recipes

There are certain people it seems nearly impossible to buy a gift for. They have everything, are super picky, you’re not that close with them (i.e. coworkers), it’s a Secret Santa, the list goes on & on… But what’s the one gift everyone will like? Chocolate! That’s why we put together the most adorable, delicious gift box filled with all different types of chocolate: hot chocolate, chocolate covered marshmallows, & bonbons. Plus some adorable gifts to go with it: a mug (for the hot chocolate), a piece of wreath (for the holiday spirit), & the cutest gift box ever (courtesy of Target!). Here’s more details on exactly what’s inside:

We’re obsessed with this hot chocolate mix. The tin is adorable & keeps the powder super fresh. Another brand & package that makes for a great gift is this one. In the mug that’s intended for the hot chocolate we threw in some chocolate covered marshmallows for a fuller effect. Some other mugs we love are: this one (so festive!), this one, & this one (this is the perfect couples gift!). Feel free to fill the mug with whatever you’d like: mixing spoons or marshmallows (obsessed with these ones–they’re snowflake shaped!) both make for great options. The last item we put into the gift is a box of bonbons, because who doesn’t like chocolate?! This gift is a super easy way to make a present feel personal without much effort. Bonus points if you know their favorite candy (replace the bonbons with that!) or opt for an initial mug. Get details on how to assemble & where to get everything here:
