Heartwarming Hugs - Perfect for Gift Giving!

Have you noticed the Heartwarming Hugs Product Suite in the August to December Mini Catalogue?  I love the idea that you can use the products for both gift giving and to great tags and gifts.  Today I'm sharing a great gift giving idea - this is perfect for neighbour gifts or teacher gifts or gifts for someone special!  Decorate the cups and then fill them with the ingredients for hot chocolate or coffee or tea or maybe roll up a cozy pair of socks!

Wouldn't you love to get a gift like this!
