Idea 1 – Mini Gingerbread House Mug Perch

This cute little mini mug perch makes a great gift idea! Buy a cute holiday-themed mug, add your mini gingerbread house and your favorite warm beverage mix (hot cocoa, tea, or coffee).  Wrapped up with a bow, anyone would love to get this in their stocking!
