These ornaments are not only pretty to look at, they contain the ingredients for a deliciously indulgent hot chocolate, too. Once you’ve mastered this recipe why not tweak it to create more inventive flavours?

Just remember to make extra as you may want to keep these baubles for yourself! Find out how to make them on lecremedelacrumb.
These wooden coasters are perfect for the party season, and the design can be as simple or as elaborate as you dare to stencil! We found these pretty ones on the3thavenue. You should be able to pick up a set of plain wooden coasters on eBay for under £5.
Pinterest is filled with great ideas on making your own personalised mugs, and we love these simple gold and white ones from pinegateroad. If you prefer bolder designs you could swap the gold for a brighter tone, or how about swapping the initial for the lyrics to your giftee’s favourite Christmas song?
What’s great about all these gifts is you can put real thought and imagination into them and you can be sure your gift will be both unique and much appreciated. We hope we’ve inspired you to be creative with your presents this year, and you can always find more ideas on our Pinterest board.
