Happy Holidays: Hot Cinnamon Milk Mix (Neighbor Gift Idea)!

Before we get started, let meintroduce myself real quick! I’m Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous® and I LOVE holidays! Christmas can be such a busy time of year, so I love it when I find an easy, thoughtful gift to give to my neighbors and friends.

Do you need an easy idea for Neighbor Gifts this Christmas? This delicious drink mix is so yummy and fun to package for gift giving!

This is one of my all time favorite hot drinks for the holidays. It tastes like egg nog…but a lot lighter on the calories! And it makes a wonderful gift. Everybody raves about the creamy, cinnamon flavor.

This was our neighbor gift for last Christmas, but I never got around to posting it on my blog. So I’m excited that I could share it for this fun event on TT&J!

I found those awesome wood scoops and white kraft paper bags online and knew they’d be perfect for my Cinnamon Milk Mix! Add in some festive washi tape and bakers twine, and you’re set! I used my Silhouette CAMEO and printable metallic foil to create the labels.

1/2 cup powdered French Vanilla Creamer

Simply mix ingredients together and fill your jar or bag.
To enjoy this yummy treat, mix 1/3 cup of mix with 8oz hot milk.
