That’s a Wrap! 

It may be what’s inside that counts, but the outside of this gift is pretty fab, too. To make, print the cookie recipe on 8 1/2x11-inch paper. Then prepare the dough, roll it in plastic wrap and cover it with the paper. Tie the ends with ribbon to seal and attach a plastic bag of any extras they’ll need (sprinkles, chocolate chips, crushed candy canes, etc.).

Cookie recipes they’ll love to receive:

Presents with Personality

Forget boring tags. Personalize your gift even more by adding a photo of the recipient to the front of the box. They’ll love knowing that something sweet’s headed their way.

You’ll never disappoint when you wrap up one of these treats:

Confection Collection

 

Give truffles, bonbons, cake balls and more a comfy home in recycled egg cartons geared up for gifting. Line each spot with a colorful paper or foil candy cup, add your treats and wrap up the container with cellophane and holiday bling.

Party Plate

Swag up your offering with an easy-to-decorate disposable paper plate. Punch out holes every inch or so around the edge, weave a ribbon through them and tie a bow. Place a circle of waxed paper in the center of the plate, then top with your edible gifts.

Bake up a batch of full-size cinnamon rolls, or try one of these:

A simple foil bread pan becomes the bearer of good things when lined with decorative tissue paper and tied up with some bright ribbon. Wrap in cellophane for the final touch.
