Serve coffee with a holiday twist: Make your own Christmas-themed sugar cubes. You'll need small silicone candy molds, granulated sugar and food coloring (we found our molds at firstimpressionsmolds.com, starting at $8). Mix 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cold water and 12 drops of red or green food coloring, then fill the molds with the mixture, pressing down with your fingers to pack it in.
