Packaging cookies and cookie dough for Christmas gifts

I love to bake. I’m sure this is because I love to eat cookies….

Giving cookies away at this time of year is a perfect way to join my baking obsession, and gift giving. Here are some good ideas for packaging up those tasty treats.

First, you could make your own slice-and-bake cookie dough and freeze in in logs. Wrap those logs up with wax paper and a cute label. Also, include the recipe so more can be made. Here’s a the site where I found the above photo

Here’s a great use for Pringle’s cans!

I like to find pretty, orphaned china dishes and bowls at thrift stores and package the treats inside.

Of course, Martha always has perfect packaging ideas. She also has a list of the kinds of cookies that are best for shipping and freezing.

As I have said before, I love to make gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but any good cookie makes a perfect gift. The possibilities are endless, and everyone loves to get cookies, so start baking and make the world a better place!

  1. Have the hardest time sending my decorated sugar cookies in the mail to friends for gifts. Thanks for the ideas! The problem then is what should I do with them? I can’t eat them all! My family is sick of sugar cookies since I am an addict for making them. They make me happy. Is that weird. Thank you for being a soul foodie. If I get blue, I pull out my colored candy sprinkles! Now I will wander through your blog!

    • Have you brought your cookies to a retirement home? I find that the people there appreciate the homemade goodies and the personal attention. Also, firestations appreciate coookies, too. Thansk for reading!

  3. Dear Sweet,

    Thank you for “liking” my blog! Even though in many ways my blog is the opposite of yours (I’m often ranting against the evils of sugar addiction), I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t love sweets so much. Plus, I can tell that you love things that taste good, & so do I! Add to that the fact that I find your blog really pretty & appealing, & it’s one big “like” for me! Thanks for the great ideas.

  5. Cute package ideas! I love to bake too, and give 99% of it away! It’s so much fun to surprise friends with a sweet treat!
