Hot Cinnamon Milk Mix & Gift Giving Ideas and Tags

If you're looking for something quick to give as a gift this Christmas season, read on....

I LOOOOVE giving homemade mixes for Christmas.  I love receiving gifts that express that the giver put some thought and time into personalizing them.

And lest we forget...IT'S FRUGAL!!

It seems we are already eating soooo much from Thanksgiving through the New Year, so I really like giving something the recipient can enjoy in their own timing.

I was tickled to come across this mix via a blog hop...I found it at Craftaholics Anonymous.  You really should go to her site and check out the adorable cloth bow she made to tie around the jars of this fabulous mix too.

It is amazing and intriguing to me to think of how this mix sorta tastes like eggnog...minus the egg. It doesn't even have any rum extract or nutmeg in it??  HHMMMMM....

I was thrilled to be able to make this mix sugar free.  I will be giving it to the older folks in our Sunday School class at church.  (My hubs is the teacher).

I have enjoyed this many evenings, as it has NO caffeine, and I think the warm milk even helps me sleep sounder. 

I went to my Word program and typed up some labels to 'dress up' the gift a little more....


I love love love this site - Organized Christmas. There are soo many options for great gift-giving ideas and recipes too. 

I've made up about 20 simple Snowman Soup packets. 
Below is a printable bag topper with a cute little poem about being good this year. There is a choice of 3 different graphics.

You'll be very pleased if you take time to look at the Printable Gifts & Crafts you'll find at this site.  They have things like You've been Elfed, Christmas Blessing Mix, and Snowman and Reindeer Poop gag gifts...and much more!

OH - did I forget to mention??......IT'S ALL FREE!!!! (Another mix I'm gift-giving is Pumpkin Spice Mochaccino...De-LISH!

Give the cinnamon milk a try...only 4 ingredients and you are ready to enjoy.

HOT CINNAMON MILK MIX

2 c. powdered milk
1 c. powdered french vanilla creamer
(I found sugar free)
1 c. sugar (I used Splenda)
1/2 TB. ground cinnamon

To enjoy the mix, warm 1/2 c. water with 1/2 c. milk.
Place 1/3 c. mix in a mug, add the liquid and stir well.
(May dissolve mix in all water, but the milk adds creaminess that is wonderful)

ENJOY!!!!!!
