Handmade Gifts: Holiday Cookies and Wrapping



No Comments


I’m going to share a little secret with you. It’s no small coincidence that my favorite Sesame Street character growing up was the Cookie Monster. I empathized deeply to his outpouring of emotion over sugary treats. And even though I’m no longer a little kid, I still believe that there are few things in this life a cookie can’t cure (even if it’s only for a sweet moment). To me, homemade cookies (from gingerbread to chocolate chip) make the perfect gift any time of year—and especially at the holidays when there’s a good chance we are at our most frazzled.

Wrapping your homemade goodies, however, can be a bit tricky. Thankfully, Spoon Fork Bacon is here to save the (holi)day with several delightful ways to wrap your cookies in style. They make it a snap to personalize your cookie packaging with easy downloadable templates, necessary materials (as well as where to buy them), and simple instructions on how to bring it all together. So make the Cookie Monster in your life smile this holiday with a homemade treat wrapped in love.
