Hot Chocolate & Teen Gift Ideas

Happy Sunday! We are officially starting our family Christmas movie nights this week and I am so ready for it! At 8 pm there will be a Christmas movie on in the family room every night we are home from now through the holidays. If people need to be on their laptops during the movie finishing up work that’s fine! We’ve got a lot of movies to watch in a short period of time so it’s time to get serious. Ha. I asked my kids if they want to take turns picking out the movie OR if they want me to write all of our favorite Christmas movie titles on pieces of paper and put them in a jar so we can draw one out each night. They liked the jar idea! They also requested hot chocolate so I set up this cute little hot cocoa station. It’s simple but just right for the 5 of us and our family movie nights.

I ordered this cute sign to set behind my hot chocolate station mostly to cover the plug outlet on this wall! I wish it was a little bigger but it will do for this year.

I set out a couple of my pretty glass trees and laid out some of these cute snowflake marshmallows. Aren’t they fun!? My kids loved them. I knew they would!

Another fun addition are these adorable Christmas spoons I ordered. They have little Christmas pendants on the end of them and are  just right for stirring hot chocolate. Another hit with the kids!

{set of 5 glass kitchen canisters}

Because I don’t have a lot of space on this counter I knew I needed skinny jars for the toppings. I found this cute set of 5 glass kitchen canisters on-line and they are perfect! I love the sealed lids too. Hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes, chocolate chips and crushed peppermint. Our family favorites for hot chocolate. :)

This is going to be a busy spot for the next few weeks! I’m not mad about it. :)

I’m also not mad about the fact that when I’m home I’m in Christmas pjs. Love this cozy vibes set! Brand is PJ salvage so a little more pricey but they are so soft and comfy. I especially love that they are cute for the holidays but will also work through the winter months after Christmas too.

Got my Christmas movie mug, pjs, and hot chocolate. I am SET. If you need me you know where I’ll be. :)

This one just made me smile. Ha. :)

I’ve been chipping away at my holiday shopping and thought I’d share some cute things I’m seeing and loving for my teens! My girls are so easy to shop for. I can basically just pick out things I love! The items below are all things they have and use or items on their wish list for this year. Kole is another story. Teen boys are HARD to buy for aren’t they!? I rounded up some of the items I’m debating/ordering for Kole. If you have a teen boy and know of some other fun gift ideas please share! It’s a tricky stage for gift giving. I hope these gift ideas help!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Off to make a Christmas movie jar. :)

  1. Enjoy your movie nights! What a cute hot cocoa bar. Those are some big snowflake marshmallows. I picked up a box of peppermint hot chocolate packets at Walmart for my daughter. It looks like the mini marshmallows in it are peppermint. She’s excited to try it soon. :) You have some fun gift ideas. Yes, girls are easy. And even though I don’t really have experience buying for boys, I do find my husband hard to buy for sometimes! We caught the mid to end of Home Alone last night. I hadn’t seen it in so long it was mostly new to me. My husband was giggling a lot at the pranks and the mom in me was worried about how much pain the guys were in. LOL

    1. Ha! Home Alone is such a classic! That’s Kole’s favorite every year. :) Husbands and boys are always the hardest aren’t they!? Definitely more of a struggle for me too. Thank you so much Jeanne! I hope you are having a good December! :)
