Happy December, my dears!! I’m welcoming this month of festivities by baking my first big batch of Christmas cookies (Raspberry-Almond Thumbprints). Since I find baking therapeutic during the craziness of the holidays, I always end up with WAY more cookies than A & I can consume (although we definitely give it our best shot). I’ve been on the lookout for chic ways to package up homemade cookies to give as tokens of Christmas cheer to friends & family… and party favors for the upcoming fetes! This wooden wine box (above) is a genius way to pack up sweets: just tie on a bright ribbon for a lesson in stylish simplicity.
Small compotes holding holiday cookies make two gifts in one! Get the instructions for these cellophane envelopes that hold one perfect cookie each.
Think outside the cookie jar, & pack up homemade marshmallows or candies in a, well, cookie jar.
