One of my favorite things to do every holiday season is to make tons and tons of treats to give to my friends and family. I literally spend days baking, and love every second of it. I typically will place each type of treat in its own treat bag and then put them all into a larger basket. But there are many ways you can package things for smaller and larger gifts.
Here’s a few ideas:
Package Holiday Treats: Boxes/Tins
Use for brownies and cookies. Wrap them in parchment or place in a sealed bag before putting into the box or tin. This is best if you are giving one type of treat. (Shown: Ikea, $2.99 for a set of three)
Package Holiday Treats: Treat Bags
Use for cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, scones or even small loaves of bread. Some candies could also be contained in treat bags. Tie with a pretty ribbon or seal with a nice metallic sticker. These are best for holiday party favors or for packaging inside a larger basket or bag. (Shown: Michael’s, price varies)
Package Holiday Treats: Buckets/Baskets
Use for small cookies, chocolate covered pretzels or candies that are sealed in treat bags. Tie a ribbon around the top of the bucket. Use larger baskets for a mix of treats such as several types of cookies and confections. Buckets are best for gifting one type of treat in a smaller portion. (Shown: Target, $1)
Package Holiday Treats: Ribbons
Use to dress up treat bags, baskets, buckets and cookie jars. Thin ribbons are best for treat bags, while medium to wider ribbons can be a nice touch for buckets and baskets. (Shown: Michael’s and Target, prices vary)
