Hot Chocolate

This is an oldie, but a goodie. It's withstood the test of time and is proven to instantly warm up even the chilliest of toes. And, if it's topped off with mini marshmallows and/or whipped cream, it's also impossible to turn down.

Frothy Hot Mochaccino

This is better than coffee and has that extra kick of caffeine that hot chocolate sometimes lacks. The kiddos might even like it (but decaf, of course). They may also enjoy watching the mixture expand in the blender.

Hot Butterbeer

You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan to go nuts for this hot drink. For those who find hot chocolate a little too chocolatey (we know, it's hard to believe) or who simply prefer butterscotch, this might just be the perfect way to watch a snowstorm from the window.

Maple Hot Chocolate

This classic winter drink has a syrupy-sweet vanilla twist. You can never have too much maple. Try it with some whipped cream and, that's right, more maple syrup as a topping.

Creamy Hot Mocha Mix

This is the perfect gift for your favourite babysitter, stressed-out piano teacher, or even for the rest of your family. Fill an empty peanut butter jar, coffee can, or glass bottle with this wonderful concoction, stick on a custom-designed (by-you-know-who) label, and tie the whole thing up with some shiny ribbons. And if you want to keep it all to yourself, we won't judge.

Spiced Orange Tea

Perfect for when you're looking for something spicy rather than sweet. Float an orange slice in each cup of tea to make it look fancy.
