Holiday Mugs and Hot Chocolate Night Ideas

Every year we have our annual hot chocolate night! It’s something our family looks forward to, especially the kids. It’s a great way for our family to connect and feel warm + cozy during the cold MN winters.

Hot chocolate night is always more fun with festive mugs so I rounded up some of my favorites for the entire family. And if you’re looking for a new spin on your hot chocolate nights, I included four amazing recipes that you should try out!

I used to design seasonal mugs and kids mugs (holds about 13 oz or less) tend to be harder to find because they have to go through strict testing protocols to be labeled as “kids mugs” from retailers but you can search under “mini mugs” for kid-size mugs as well.
