Small Gifts

Well, the weather here in Western Iowa has decided to go from single digits to the 40s and possibly even 50s this week. That kind of stops me from making my yearly peanut brittle. I don't like making it unless it's cold.  It gets too sticky in warm weather. So, instead,  I made gifts for all of my grandchildren; real and daycare.

I took little reindeer mugs, added a packet of hot cocoa mix, a candy cane and a flavored lip balm for every child.  Put it in a Christmas bag and tied them with Christmas ribbon. I put the child's name on the name tag. Not expensive but enough to make each one of them happy and feel special. I made twenty and had  a few left over mugs that I will make up and take to our local family shelter for them to give away.
