How to wrap cookies for gifting – 7 ways!
Wondering how to gift cookies but not sure where to start? Use any of my 7 easy ideas for packaging homemade cookies! And if you need some recipe inspiration, I’ve got a whole library of cookie recipes for you to chose from!
Idea 1: Gift in foil pan
Grab a foil pan (any size) from the grocery store and gift your baked cookies inside! It’s a quick & easy way to make your treats look a little more presentable, rather than just gifting them on a paper plate!
Idea 2: Gift in a plastic bag
Whether you use a regular ziploc bag or a cellphane treat bag made for cookies, plastic bags are a quick & easy way to package cookies! In a pinch, you can cut the zipper off a Ziploc bag, slip in a cookie, and tie the top with string!
Idea 3: Gift in printable pouch
Skip the store and print off your own cookie pouches at home! These are great for small to medium-sized, flat cookies (like my Kitchen Sink Cookies or One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies. Just be sure to wrap your cookies in plastic wrap before putting in the paper pouch (or else the grease will soak through).
Idea 4: Gift in a grease-proof pouch
These grease-proof paper bags from Amazon are one of my favorite ways to package cookies. They are inexpensive, grease-proof, and have a peel-off adhesive strip, making them easy to close and embellish with a tag or twine!
Idea 5: Gift in box
For a true bakery-style gift, I love to gift cookies in a white bakery box with a window lid. It’s great for sugar cookies (or any frosted cookie!) that you don’t want to mess up, while also providing a peek into your hard work!
Idea 6: Gift in printable bags
For smaller treats or cookies, you can print off my printable treat pouches and gift them in there! These are fun for little birthday treats or anything where you don’t want to run to the store to get bags! Be sure to wrap cookies in plastic wrap before slipping in bag to prevent grease from soaking through.
Want to create cute labels and printable stickers to add to your treat bags? You can use sticker sheets or a fun label printer (like the Munbyn Bluetooth thermal printer that doesn’t even require ink or toner!) to customize the name of the recipe, the recipient’s name, or even a fun holiday message!
Idea 7: Gift the dough!
One of my favorite food gifts to give to friends with new babies (or new neighbors!) is freezer dough! Simply make your favorite drop cookie recipe and gift in a foil pan with the baking instructions.
