Christmas Cookie Packaging Tips & Ideas

Posted on November 17, 2014
Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! This new week has started off cold, gray and rainy here, and I am sort of secretly hoping that it turns into snow soon! And since the holiday baking season is quickly approaching, I wanted to share a couple tips and ideas for cookie packaging with you today! I love giving (and receiving!!) homemade cookies as little gifts around the holidays, and I always think it’s more fun to receive a gift that’s nicely packaged and personalized! All you need is some ribbon, cellophane bags or glass jars, seasonal embellishments, pretty gift tags and some delicious homemade cookies, of course! It really doesn’t take much to make a sweet little cookie package to give away!

Here are some of my favorite ways to package holiday cookies…
 .
To make homemade cookies look a little extra special, instead of packaging them in a plain tupperware container, use a nice glass jar. Fill it with cookies, then tie some red satin ribbon around the top, add an oversized bow, and finish the packaging off with a gift tag sticker on the face of the jar! I got all my gift tags from  Tiny Prints where you can customize and personalize them! (And you could also easily use any Tiny Prints Christmas cards that you’ve already received, for any of these packaging ideas.) I love using red satin ribbon at Christmas time, because it instantly adds a luxurious and festive touch!
 .
This is a great way to quickly package party favors – place a couple of cookies in a cellophane bag, tie with a twisty tie to make sure the cookies stay soft,  and add some pretty ribbon and a gift tag! It couldn’t be easier, but still looks a little extra special!
 .
For a simple and elegant look, buy a set of solid colored tins (gold is perfect for Christmas), line them with parchment paper, then fill with cookies! It’s hardly any work, and looks so pretty! Plus the recipient gets to keep the tin, too!
.
This may just be my favorite cookie gift, because I think it’s the most useful around the holidays! Make your cookie dough as usual, form it into balls, then freeze them (you can follow my full instructions for this HERE). To package them for a gift, simply put them on a decorative or disposable plate, place that in a ziplock bag, tie some ribbon around it and attach instructions for baking! This is a great little gift especially around the holidays when people have friends and family stop by their house, because they’ll be able to pull these out of their freezer and have freshly baked cookies in a matter of minutes without any work!

What are your favorite ways to package Christmas cookies? And, maybe more importantly, what are your favorite cookies to bake every year? I’m already planning my Christmas cookie list, it’s one of my favorite things about the holidays! Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Happy Baking, Everyone!
