Fun and Creative Ways to Package Your Holiday Cookies

I cherish homemade gifts like jams, candies, spice rubs, etc. I greatly appreciate the time it took to make me something special.  Each year, I love to give family, friends, and neighbors homemade gifts instead of something store bought. It is usually an assortment of baked goods, canned mixes, and/or other goodies. I try to find a creative way to package everything.  I feel just as much time should go into their packaging as their preparation. If it isn’t pretty, well…….  I just don’t want to gift it.

You can purchase cookie and treat boxes at local craft stores. I usually buy the Wilton brand of boxes and get them in an assortment of styles and colors. I was browsing Facebook early and came across a comment about creative packaging for holiday cookies.  I clicked on the link and was delighted with the variety of ideas offered. Stephanie at Under the Table and Dreaming  posted 50 creative ideas to package your homemade cookies. The red bandana below is my favorite. My kids would love the Painted Folded Paper Plate Basket. I have relisted a few of my favorites here.

Each December, I host a Cookie Exchange with my friends and neighbors. It is always a great experience and everyone has a great time. Throughout December, I will be posting cookie recipes as I start my holiday baking and getting ready for my cookie exchange. So check back often for more holiday cookie and candy recipes.

 Until then, look at all the fun ways to package them.
