Giving a gift of homemade cookies is fun, but don't let it stop there. Here are a few creative ideas on packaging those delicious treats.



Giving a gift and watching the recipient smile just warms our heart. This is especially true if we made it ourselves and put a lot of ourselves into it. Giving a box of homemade cookies is a great way to tell someone you care.

Who doesn’t love cookies? Who would not like to receive a batch of delightful chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal delights, or coconut macaroons? Pick out a favorite cookie or even an assortment of cookies. Take a day and have fun in the kitchen. Get the kids involved. Bake some delicious cookies. 

Baking the cookies is just the beginning of this sweet gift. Sometimes the packaging can be the most fun. The package is what the other person sees first and intrigues them. Here are a few suggestions for wrapping up freshly baked cookies.

Hat Box – There are so many sizes out there for hat boxes. They are great for putting in little gifts such as cookies. They come in an assortment of sizes and decorations such as teddy bears, Victorian flowers, and cartoon characters. Add some ribbons, stickers, or other decorations that make it even more personal.

Tin Cans – Using a container with holiday decorations, flowers, or even the person’s name can be a great way to give away homemade cookies. They can reuse the containers and maybe even return the favor one day.  

Cookie Jars – Give more than just delicious homemade cookies. Give them a cute cookie jar along with the mouthwatering snacks. Do they enjoy pigs? Give them a jar with pigs on it. How about gardening? Cookie jars with flowers would be great. Have fun shopping for the perfect cookie jar.

Bowls –  How about giving your cookies in a decorative bowl? There are so many sizes, colors, and shapes out there. Be creative in your bowl shopping. 

Baskets – Give your cookies away in a beautiful basket. In fact, baskets might be the most versatile container you can find. With a few craft items and a glue gun, you can create a work of art to hold your wonderful cookies.  

Flower Pot – Yes, I said a flower pot. Buy a brand new flowerpot and put your cookies inside. Wrap it all up in plastic and top it off with a ribbon. This is a great gift for those that love to garden or just love flowers.

Giving away homemade cookies is fun, but don’t let the fun stop there. Have fun in packaging them and sharing the love.
