I want to share with you a last minute gift idea which I made up for some girlfriends last night for Christmas. I love pretty packages, and when I saw these cute sweater-wrapped mugs at the dollar store, I couldn’t help but pick up a few to make something pretty out of them! I thought they would be perfect for mug cake gift…and gift cards too! Who doesn’t love some warm cake on a cold winter’s night…especially when you can make it easily and quickly in the microwave and it tastes so good? And here’s what’s brilliant…the mug cakes are packages from a store too!
I decorated these lovely mugs with a sparkly snowflake tag and a wooden spoon tied with some twine. I even used some scrapbooking rub-on words to embellish the spoon with the words ‘comfy’ and ‘cozy’.
And have you seen these in the cake mix aisle at Safeway? There are two flavors and I picked up some when they were on sale for $1 per box and there are 2 packages inside.
I also added some chocolates inside too. You could also add a gift card too. It sure does make a pretty gift, don’t you think?
And if you can’t find any spoons, a mini candy cane embellishment will work as well and look just as festive!
This would be such a great gift for friends, neighbours, teachers and coaches.
And it doesn’t take long to put together at all and is very easy on the budget!

Another Great Idea Angie! I love the little sweater mugs too! I like how you embellished them to pretty them up. we Picked up a bunch of mugs at the Dollar Store and made Sharpie Mugs. My 13 year old daughter had a blast making them for the special people in her life! I posted earlier about them on the blog.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
