Two days prior our company consultant Holiday Party my boss wanted me to take over the planning and pull everything together (Yes, you heard right, I had two days to pick up everything and make sure it was a success). At this point we didn’t have any party favors; call me old fashioned but I wasn’t about to be a part of a Holiday Party that didn’t have  Holiday Favors! That meant I had less than two days to put something together, Yikes!!!!

I decided to go with a winter  holiday inspired gift that included a packet of Starbucks Gourmet Hot Cocoa paired with Gourmet Ghiradelli Chocolate and a Peppermint Candy Cane. Now doesn’t that sound like the perfect treat for a cozy winter evening? The best part about it was the total cost for each favor was only $2.18

I used two flavors of Starbucks Gourmet Hot Cocoa, just to give a little variety

The bag looks a little beat up but you can’t beat $9.99 for 50 pieces. Marshalls and TJ Maxx have a wide variety of gourmet food & candy this time of year and the prices are unbeatable!

I placed the items on top of each other and tied them together with a little red and silver bow

I did two variations of favor bags one was Silver and Gold and the other was Red, Silver and White. Festive, right?
