Yes! A hot cocoa gift is a fun way to say Merry Christmas. The best part is that you can use my free printable labels as a great way to make these homemade gifts more special. You can add all sort of fun toppings in your hot cocoa gift as well to. This way you can more personalize your gift to the person you are giving to.
Types of hot cocoa gifts
I am going to discuss three types of ways to present your hot chocolate gift including the free printables.
The first is the mason jar. With this version you supply someone with multiple servings of hot cocoa. The free printable tag will supply them with instructions on how to make their hot chocolate.
The mason jar is a fun option because you can get pretty creative with the different toppings that you put inside because it has more space in it. You can even put in homemade hot cocoa mixes inside the jar.
Hot cocoa mugs: This option is fun because you are also giving them a hot chocolate mug to go with their mix. With this option it is better to buy hot cocoa mixes that come in hot chocolate packets that can be placed in the mug. You still can add fun toppings inside the mug.
Last but not least, my favorite, is hot chocolate bombs. These are such a fun way to present your hot chocolate gift with more of a WOW factor. Check out my HOT COCOA BOMB post for instructions on how to make them.
They are surprisingly easy and can also have different toppings inside the bomb. They really are an extra special touch! These will also have instructions on the free hot chocolate printable gift labels.
How to make a hot chocolate gift using a jar?
First, you will need to choose what hot chocolate mix you plan on using whether you do homemade hot chocolate or make it. Then decide if you are going to do toppings. Some good topping options are: marshmallows, chocolate chips, cinnamon, crushed candy canes, peppermint stick etc.
Gather how many mason jars you will want to fill and determine how much cocoa filling you will need. These ones are cute and come with twine for the labels! Then fill the jars part of the way full. You will want to make sure to leave some space for any of the toppings that you have chosen. Then put in the toppings and put on the lid.

How to make a hot cocoa gift using a mug
First you will need to pick up the mugs that you plan to use. These could be as simple as picking them from the dollar store. Then make sure that you buy hot cocoa in packet form so that you can put the packet in the mug.
If you want, you could also put either peppermint spoons or peppermint sticks in your jar with some mini marshmallows as well. They can be used to mix up the hot chocolate giving it that extra peppermint flavor! You will want to wrap your mug in a cellophane gift bag to keep the contents inside.

How do you make a hot cocoa bomb?
This is a little bit more complicated, but still totally doable. Because it has more steps, I have created another post on how to make hot cocoa bombs. In that post I give great tips on how to get perfectly round and shiny hot cocoa bombs.
We made these last year and they were an adorable gift that we gave to our friends and family. They are also something that you can ship. They fit in little cookie tins that we picked up from the dollar store and sent them to our family members who lived far away from us.
It was the perfect hot chocolate gift! You will want to wrap the bomb in a clear gift bag.

How to use your free hot chocolate printable gift labels?
Once you sign up to receive our hot cocoa gift labels you will need to print them out. If you don’t have a printer, then you can get them printed out at your local office supply store. If you are able to print at home, make sure that you print these free printable labels on white card stock.
It isn’t totally necessary, but the labels will hold up better if they are printed on card stock. Then you will hole punch the top so that you have a spot to run your string or ribbon through. Then you will tie them around your jar, mug or hot cocoa bomb.
Now you’re done! Save this for later to help you remember how to make this perfect gift during the holiday season!
