Christmas teacher gift idea: hot cocoa mix in a jar

*This post has been modified from 2016*

I wanted to give my sons teacher and teacher’s aid a gift for Christmas. He’s a little rambunctious one and my husband and I just love how they have clicked with him since the start of the year. We had our term parent-teacher conference last month and they said they loved him. Aside from wanting to be a dinosaur 24/7 which they worked with him on.

Christmas teacher gift idea: hot cocoa mix in a jar

I wanted to give my sons teacher and teacher’s aid a gift for Christmas. He’s a little rambunctious one and my husband and I just love how they have clicked with him since the start of the year. We had our term parent-teacher conference last month and they said they loved him. Aside from wanting to be a dinosaur 24/7 which they worked with him on.

We tried daycare in the past but it never worked. He needed a more structured environment. We decided we wanted to do something special for them. Originally I wanted to do the hot chocolate ornaments. We went to store purchased everything and was ready to do them. Then walking into Christmas Tree Shops it was a done deal. I decided to use these cute fill ups instead. They had dozens of different designs. They were only $3.99 each. Using these with the same inspiration of hot cocoa ornaments was still a great way to display a personal touch.

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy homemade diy gift that any teacher would love
