The most memorable gifts tend to be the ones lovingly made with our own two hands. Scratch-made cookies are the perfect gift–not only are they delicious but they show the people you love just how much you care. Thoughtful gifts deserve equally thoughtful packaging. Placing your cookies in the perfect vessel will make loved ones’ eyes light up this holiday season. Here are just a few ideas from C&H Sugar for presenting your gifts in truly special ways.
Storage jars are perfect for smaller cookies like thumbprint cookies. Not only are they easy to find and use, but they also have the advantage of letting the gift receiver see their treats immediately while keeping them fresh in case they don’t all get eaten right away. You can also decorate the jars with festive ribbons, personalized cards, and many other fun and creative ways.
A classic choice for your holiday cookies, tins give you more options for how to present them. You can get a holiday-themed container and just use that. Or you can get a more basic tin and wrap that in wrapping paper for a more traditional looking gift. Tins tend to be roomier as well, allowing you to fit larger cookies like gingerbread men, palmiers, or black-and-white cookies.
Mini baskets are a great way to gift multiple types of cookies to lucky recipients. The extra space lets you carefully place rows of treats next to each other, bringing some extra flair to your presentation. Plus, the height that baskets have allows you to fit taller holiday creations like croquembouche more easily.
Nothing says “Happy Holidays” more than a festive bag decorated with eye-catching tinsel. Not only are these cute bags fun for people to receive this time of year, but they also keep the identity of the gift hidden well. So, if you want friends and family guessing what they’re getting up to the last second, tinsel bags may be your best bet.
