the gnomes and all the other felt ornaments are adorable! my extended family does secret santa annually. maybe i'll make a DIY felt ornament workshop when we meet so they can all make and take one home.
I don't love the flavor of ginger, but there's a Korean tea I love that has ginger in it. It's Saenggang Cha if you want to google it. Basically it's a cinnamon and ginger sweet tea served chilled. Sometimes it's made with persimmons. It's delicious.
Don't forget minty hot chocolate or white hot chocolate!
Minty Hot Chocolate - crush a peppermint candy/small candy cane as finely as possible - mix with hot chocolate powder - add hot milk - optional: whipped cream/marshmallows on top with a sprinkle of crushed peppermint candy on top
White Hot Chocolate - heat up milk - add good quality white chocolate shavings/chunks - stir until melted and smooth, enjoy!
