Holiday Gift Idea: Peppermint Coffee Creamer | Family Economics

By Tori Tait

            

The holiday season brings many chilly mornings and even more opportunities to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee. One of my favorite additions to a freshly brewed coffee is a great creamer. What better way to enjoy the season than with a mug full of holiday flavor?

This peppermint coffee creamer adds that beloved minty flavor to your favorite morning (or evening) coffee. Make two batches – one for you and one to share with a friend or neighbor. It’s really simple (and inexpensive) to make.

Pour ingredients into a mason jar or other container, tie a ribbon around it and you have a great holiday gift! Create a DIY gift basket by combining the creamer with coffee and box of biscotti’s.
