Creative Christmas 

So this year I’ve actually decided to be a bit creative with my Christmas gifts and I thought I’d share this little gift with you’s all. This year I was majorly stressing out because I couldn’t afford big gifts for my friends as much as I’d love to spoil them I couldn’t afford to, that’s when this affordable gift struck me. Flavoured homemade hot chocolate in mason jars! Although you can mix up the ingredients I just went for a peppermint ones with little crushed candy-canes and a spiced one featuring ginger and cinnamon. These were such simple and affordable gifts but they have a personalised touch to them. They are pictured below along with instructions  to create your own:
