Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Holiday Season just begs that you share a cup of good cheer with your fellow man — and whoever happens to come to call. Friends and relatives are out and about. Spontaneity is also in season.

Often, unless you know that company is coming, you might not have the ingredients on hand for drop-in and impromptu guests. Yet, the festive atmosphere calls for a little fun food and drink.

Solve that problem with a beverage basket.

Keep a sturdy basket or box in your pantry or cupboard. Stock it with coffee, teas, cocoa, as well as sparkling juices, bottled waters, and your other preferred drinks. If you pack in a supply of cups and a black marker, you’ll have everything you need to offer hospitality to anyone who crosses your threshold.

(I’m keeping my mugs in the cupboard, but you could add those as well if you like.)

What else would YOU stock in a holiday beverage basket?

  1. Wow.. what a simple yet excellent idea. In fact, am thinking this can easily be adapted into a fun and frugal gift idea as well. Thanks Jessica, this seems super.

  2. This is a great idea! I may use this to put a basket together for my MOPS group’s silent auction!

    I’ll just have to refrain from bidding on it myself! 😉

  3. What a great idea!! I must implement that immediately:-) Hee, hee, hee.

  4. How about adding sweeteners, such as honey sticks, sugar, cinnamon sticks or peppermint sticks!

  5. Super idea. Noting kinda fizzles the mood as having to run around and gather up stuff to give those holiday visitors.

  6. What’s the marker for?

    You are so incredibly organized. I am envious. ;-P I would definitely add a package of biscoff biscuit cookies (like they used to serve on planes). They are yummy with any warm drink! 🙂

  8. Great idea! I like the Capri Suns for the children. I’d have to keep my own out of them, though. =)
    I’m not sure what the drink is in the photo, but it looks fabulous!

  9. great idea! i think i’ll have to plan for one.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
