Easy Dollar Store Mug Gift Supplies

The items you need for these easy mug gifts can be found at your local dollar store. Most of my supplies came from Dollar Tree, but Dollar General would also be a suitable place to shop for these.

The only items I used that were not available at Dollar Tree were the mug cake packets and the creamers. I just happened to already have the mug cakes at home and decided to use them in some of the mug gift sets.

Mug cake packets can be found at any grocery or superstore and Dollar General. I bought several boxes a few weeks ago when they were on sale for $2 a pack (4 servings).

I bought the French Vanilla creamer cups at Dollar General for around $3 for 24.

The Swiss Miss Cocoa is available at Dollar Tree. The $1 box has 6 packets. I didn’t actually buy it at Dollar Tree because I already had a 60-ct box at home from Sam’s Club. My kids go through a case every couple of weeks. I paid around 10 cents per packet. The Dollar Tree price is 17 cents per packet.

Easy Dollar Store Mug Gift Variations

My mug gifts sets are really just a basic sample of what you could do with a mug and inexpensive items from the dollar store.

You could stick with just cocoa but add small bags of marshmallows and chocolate chips.

You could use only coffee but add a variety of flavored creamers instead of the French vanilla I had.

One year we made our own hot cocoa mix and measured single servings into tiny zipper bags. We included marshmallows and plastic stirring spoons we had dipped in chocolate and sprinkles.

You could use the noodle soup with a bag of oyster crackers and a bunch of cough drops as a gift for someone who is under the weather.

You could add baked goods to the mug with the cappuccino packets.

The sky’s the limit when you have such a great variety of inexpensive items!
