The Hot Chocolate Kit | Gees Grotto


So as part of Gee's Grotto, I decided to write about another gift idea which can also be a decoration after used. ( Explained after)

Look back for previous Gees Grotto Posts as I have been doing them all weekend

I got inspiration for this on Pinterest but I have changed it so it suits my friends. I made 6 in total , 5 large pots and 1 little pot ( secret santa idea). 

I made hot chocolate kits with a little something , a homemade hot chocolate stirrer. Once the hot chocolate has been made , you stir in the chocolate stick to create a extra chocolate taste or it can just be eaten on its own.


Jars ( I used Coffee and Nutella)
Hot Chocolate Mix (Powder)
Biscuits TIP; Make sure they will fit in the jars.

I used washy tape , ribbon and bows

WHAT YOU WILL NEED- Chocolate Stirrer; MAKES 15

Chocolate mould case (Poundland have loads)
Chocolate bars ( 300g)
Decoration; Sprinkles
Sticks or Straws
A Small amount of the hot chocolate powder *Optional*


Made sure that the jars are washed and I would decorate them first as if you do it after the layers would be ruined.

Measure equally the hot chocolate powder into the jars. TIP; Make a cone shape item (could be Paper).
Add the Marshmallows.

Add the biscuits; TIP- Place them around the outside so you can see them.

Add the chocolates; I choose reindeer to make it christmassy.

You can leave them there or..

Add The Chocolate Stirrer;


Wash the mould to make sure it is completely dried.

I used a water bath to melt the chocolate which I found was best but could use a microwave.

Add the decoration first to the mould

Spoon the melted chocolate into the moulds; the neater the better.

Add the sticks/ straws
(IF USING STRAWS) Cut the straws to how long you want the sticks; TIP- Remember they have to be long enough to use in a mug/ cup.

Sprinkle the how chocolate powder over the top for decoration

Place in Fridge/Freezer and leave to set.

Then add them to the hot chocolate kits.


They can clean the kit out and because you have decorated it , they can add a candle. Then they have a christmas tea light. *BEWARE OF THE ADD DECORATIONS*

So Thats my kits all ready for christmas.

Let me know if you make them and how they go

DIY Personalised Christmas Decorations | Gee's Grotto


So Gee's Grotto is all about Christmas , this includes mainly present ideas and decorations ideas.

So I love little DIY's and I got the idea while searching for presents for my friends. However, I didn't find anything that I thought was worth buying.

I decided to make them personalised tree decorations that they will keep forever.


Scrabble Letters ( EBAY LINK) Tip - Check the amount of letters that you will need before buying.

Glue Gun or Strong glue

Ribbon or String


1) Arrange your letters so that you don't waste time.

2)Start gluing the letters together. If you are using a hot glue gun please be careful! Also you may need to hold the pieces together while it dries a bit

3) Do this for all of your names

4) Measure your ribbon beforehand so that it forms a loop

5) Using the glue make close that it ribbon is looped

6) Using the glue again, fasten the ribbon into place. I pushed the ribbon into the middle square of each name.

So here's the finished product;

I hope that you liked this little DIY, Let me know if you make them and if they worked for you.

Ideas For Dads | Gee's Grotto


So Gee's Grotto is all about Christmas , this includes mainly present ideas and decorations ideas.

So I'm always struggling for ideas for presents for my dad. But this year , I actually had a few this year which surprised me. Here are some;

1) Box of Treats

My idea is to do a box full of my dads favourite things. These would include his favourite sweets , films and Cd's. That way you know that your dad will like it. I plan on putting useful things such as socks ( My Dads classic want) , also, some fun items that will humour him.

Also it can be as expensive as you want. (LINK)

2) Band Tickets

When my dad was younger he always went to see bands. I know that some of his favourite bands are touring so I have found tickets which I can get him. You could look at this like a daddy and daughter/son day. Treat your dad this Christmas.

3) Wallets

Every dad needs one. Perfect as a last minute gift as watches. (LINK)

4) This is not a gift but a helping tip.

Listen and remember everything he says. For example, I knew about my dads favourite bands because we had a conversation about one of their songs randomly.

I hope that this gave you some ideas. I will link some websites which helped me;
