1. The tea set

This thoughtful gift is so easy to create but will make a useful addition to any kitchen. Wrap a variety of different types of tea up in transparent bags and then tie tags to them, labelled with the name of the tea. To make it even more special you could describe each tea’s properties on the tag. For example… camomile tea for early nights and soothing sleeps.

2. The chocolate set

Encourage your friends to create their own delicious hot chocolate in their personalised mug by giving them a variety of chocolate bars that they can melt down into a mouth-watering drink. Add some marshmallows and a spoon for stirring and they’ll be ready to go. You could even include chocolate spoons for lazy days. Then you just need to add milk.

3. The coffee set

We’ve all got that one colleague who can’t get past 10 am without a cup of coffee. Make their day with this thoughtful gift set. Package some coffee beans into individual brown paper bags and then tie them with tags labelling the type of coffee it is. Then include a short description of the taste. Eg… nutty and rich or mellow and fruity. Include a caffettiera in the gift set if you’re really spoiling them.

4. The gardening set

Planting a festive plant in a mug is a fun way to introduce some greenery to their home. You could use an inspirational quote on the mug or something cute like ‘water me daily’. Include a mini shovel in your gift set so they can replant it in the small vase if the roots are getting too long.

Baking has never been easier with this simple recipe! Provide any aspiring baker with all the ingredients to make their very own mug cake. All they need to do is pour all the ingredients into the mug, cook in the microwave for roughly 1.45 minutes and then decorate as they wish! We love whipped cream and icing sugar.
