Hot Chocolate Holiday Gift for Neighbors

I like to spread the holiday love to friends and neighbors. A simple surprise package on their doorstep. It doesn't have to be an extravegant gift but something small and homemade means a lot to the person that you wave to everyday as you back your car out of the driveway, or to the mom-friend you chat with outside of the school after dropping your kids off every day.
Small, simple gestures of love and peace.
This year I made homemade hot chocolate, the recipe I received from a friend's mom so I don't know if I'm allowed to post it. (I'll update later if so.) But a search on google produces many quick and easy recipes to try out.

I love the Keep Calm posters, I know they are so last year in popularity...but I still enjoy them. I created these fun gift tags for the hot chocolate keeping with the Keep Calm style but forming the words to make a Christmas tree.

Feel free to use it for personal use only. I printed them using Picassa as wallet size prints, 8 to a 8.5 x 11 inch page.

The little ornament is crocheted yarn and recycled wine corks, I'll be selling them in my etsy store in the new year. Oh and the cards.... I downloaded the template from Becky Higgins, she has so many great free downloads including a lot of holiday card templates.
