Giving Cookies as Gifts


During the holidays I'd like to give small gifts as a sign of friendship and appreciation to many people that I deal with all year long. Since I am NOT rich, I try to make things and thought I'd share some ideas with my Thrifty Friends!


This year, while cutting out some sugar cookies, I realized that the BELL shape looked like a sitting yogi. So I iced them that way to give out to my yoga instructor and yoga mates!

Square cookies could be made to look like books (for a book club or Friends of the Library group) or into stamps or even envelopes for the postal carrier, postmaster or even into a box to your UPS/FEDEX delivery person!

Just thought I'd share these ideas and a photo of my Yoga Cookies.

You can save a lot of money this holiday season by making your own gifts then give them away to family and friends. A home made gift is much more appreciated than something that you purchase from any store.

I just baked 2 lbs. of Classic Sugar Cookies, made a product tag and will attach it to the cookie tin. I took a picture of the cookies and created a tag using a Microsoft Document.

You can find nice platters, baskets, and other containers at the Dollar Store for $1.00 each. Last year, I bought Dollar Store pizza pans, and found (also at the dollar store) some extra large ziplock bags that the pan fit into. Just add a pretty stick-on bow, or a bundle of curly ribbon and a gift tag

Hi, Linda, you can also find some really pretty plates at thrift shops, antique shops, even "junk" stores, etc.

I like to take a box the size of a boot box with a solid white bottom and just wrap the top with wrapping paper. Then line it with foil or saran then fill it up with the bakery. Tie ribbon around the whole thing to keep it closed. This method has produced pretty inpressive results for me when the receiver see's rows and rows of cookies.

I use tin buckets to package gifts that are handmade. They can then be used again by the person getting the gift.

You can also buy new, undecorated paint cans at any hardware store. They are just plain silver color.
