Looking for a fun, thoughtful and something a little out of the box to gift your favorite neighbor or teacher?? I have the perfect thing! A Hot Toddy Gift Basket.

Assembling a Hot Toddy Gift Basket requires a decorative basket or container, bourbon, honey and lemon for the ingredients and some decorative elements like a mini charcuterie board, cinnamon sticks, and instructions.

What You Need

This list is broken up into two parts: The Hot Toddy ingredients and what you need to make a great little kit.

How to Assemble

When putting your gift basket together, I like to follow a pretty basic formula that you’re welcome to copy…


Is adding the crinkled shredded paper, tissue paper, or in this case, spanish moss to the base of the basket or container. You want to make sure you have enough lift so that your items show well.

TIP: Use paper towels or packing paper underneath the moss for added lift without having to use a lot of material.

Items: BIGGEST to smallest

Start with your largest and most predominant item. For my kit, it was the mini charcuterie board, so I placed it to the back and center. Which ever item is biggest for you, place it in the basket first and build off of it to the smallest piece, like the cinnamon sticks.

TIP: If you’re assembling any sort of food or drink that requires making it themselves, be sure to include directions. Download your Hot Toddy instructions HERE!
