5. Hot chocolate mix

This sublime hot chocolate mix from Love Grows Wild (second item in the linked list) is definitely the most indulgent recipe in this roundup, but if you stick to organic ingredients and perhaps even make your own vegan marshmallows, you can stay in Santa’s good books. For vegan options, simply swap out the milk powder for soy milk or coconut milk powder, or any other milk substitute powder you prefer.

Non-alcoholic, hot, spiced apple cider? Or perhaps some warming mulled wine? Either way these gorgeous handmade sachets of mulling spice mix from 30 Pounds of Apples will get everyone in party mode. The packaging suggestion given by the blog is to put the sachets in little cardboard gift boxes, but of course a recycled jar with some wonderful bespoke children’s artwork will be just as sensational!

From Vegan Richa, in this recipe pumpkin plus chocolate plus vegan-friendly equals hurrah! All the recipient of this gift has to do is mix in pumpkin puree and non-dairy milk and they are good to go.
