Yep, it's getting to be that time of the year!
Cold weather seems to be settling in and it puts me in the Christmas mood. I LOVE giving gifts, but of course, in a frugal manner. These two mixes are always a hit - put in a bag, tied with a ribbon and put in a mug (Dollar stores have them for cheap - look for them after christmas for next year for maximum savings!!).
2 1/2 cups dry milk
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

This can be varied by varying the spices and/or using flavored creamer.
