I’ve been busy baking all kinds of Christmas treats for us to enjoy and thought I’d wrap up a few to hand out. Edible gifts are perfect for friends, neighbours, teachers, coworkers, or pretty much anyone else on your list. What’s best, is they’re super easy to put together. You could even use them as favours for your holiday party.

How to Package Up Homemade Cookies for Christmas Gifts in Pretty Tins or Bags

As I was baking these Christmas Linzer cookies earlier this week, I thought they were too beautiful not to share. A few of my friends also eat gluten-free, so I thought I’d package up a few for them to enjoy. In my opinion, an occasional treat during the holidays is a necessity. Agree?

And when cookies are as pretty as these, I don’t want the packaging to fall short. Don’t worry though, it’s so darn simple to throw together once you’ve gathered your materials. I mean, why complicate things when it really isn’t necessary?! 

Okay, let’s get my creative ways to wrap baked goods for Christmas…

Start with the Basics

When it comes to packaging baked goods for Christmas, I like to keep a supply of plain white or metallic tins in varying sizes on hand. White or kraft paper bags (or boxes) work well too. After a quick trip to the dollar store, you should be covered. Or, order supplies online to make it even easier.

Add Pretty Parchment Paper

To keep your cookies, bars or other holiday treats fresh, be sure to line the tin or bag with parchment or waxed paper in layers. This cute gold reindeer print I found is so fun and works as the perfect backdrop to my cookies. Metallics are always a safe bet.

Tie with String

Once you have your goodies packaged up in tins, bags or boxes, secure with string, ribbon or twine. I did a combination of printed MERRY CHRISTMAS ribbon, as well as baker’s twine.

Embellish with Greenery or Ornaments

Go one step further and add a clipping of real or faux greenery to your package. Believe me, this tiny detail makes a world of difference. I used boxwood from our yard, but you could use whatever is nearby.

As an option, add a tiny ornament or handmade gift topper. Any small-sized holiday decoration will work.

Add a Gift Tag

I tend to print my own Christmas tags using white or natural card stock. I have all kinds of tags on my Printables board if you’re looking for new ideas. Of course, you can use them while wrapping your other gifts too. Black and white is a safe bet.

Include the Recipe

Be sure to add a handwritten or printed version of the recipe(s) for your Christmas baked goods! Or, if you want to save paper, simply forward a link to the recipe online.
