Sometimes the best gift is a hand-made one. They are fun to make and feel so personal. They are also a great option for those not so easy to shop-for friends in your list. Besides giving gifts to my family and close friends, is also good to have these on hand to bring the host or host to attend parties this time of year. In my opinion, the best hostess gifts are those who feel celebratory and you can DIY yourself (always as a handmade gift more than store-bought one). So this year, I happened with the perfect DIY gift :. A kit Hot Toddy
The idea behind this kit mulled came to mind, because I really like to drink hot punch this time of year. They taste like a warm cup of holiday cheer, and is easy to make a big batch when you’re having friends over. Also whip up one of them without alcohol if you have a sore throat. Its flavor is wonderful, with or without alcohol. You can make yours with rum or brandy, but decided to make this kit with whiskey. So, without further ado, here is what I put in my box of punch gift hot cute DIY …
