Buying presents for the holidays can get very expensive. This DIY gift is very quick, easy, and won’t max out your credit cards. Plus this Rudolph Hot Chocolate gift is so adorable and can be for, essentially, anyone.

I found this idea on the Internet a couple years ago and it has been a great gift since. This holiday drink is perfect to give to any friend or family member. Even your kids can take them to school for gifts for their friends at their classroom holiday parties or to their teachers or bus drivers as well.

  • 2 piping bags
  • 1 Hot chocolate envelope
  • Chocolate chips
  • Mini marshmallows
  • 1 Red pom-pom ball
  • 2 google eyes
  • 2 small rubber bands
  • 1 brown pipe cleaner
  • Glue
  • Ribbon

I found my supplies at my local grocery store and Hobby Lobby.


  1. Pour your hot chocolate mix into one piping bag and get it all the way into the tip.
  2. Twist the bag closed, tie off with a rubber band and trim off the top of bag.
  3. Put that bag into another piping bag.
  4. Layer in the chocolate chips.
  5. Top it off with mini marshmallows.
  6. Twist and tie the bag with your second rubber band.
  7. Glue a pom-pom to act as a nose near tip of bag.
  8. Glue two google eyes near the top of the hot chocolate mix.
  9. Wrap Brown pipe cleaner around top for antlers and shape.
  10. Add your ribbon with a tag that reads “Poor contents of bag into mug. Add one cup of hot water or milk. Enjoy!”

This DIY Rudolph Hot Chocolate gift is a great way to save money and still spread the holiday cheer everyone deserves this season.
