Here's an adorable idea for the holidays ... display beautiful cookies in our large glass containers. The cookies will be gone in no time and the glass container(s) can be reused after the holidays for more than just food. I recommend this holiday packaging idea for a hostess gift, a client gift or for anyone on your list that would appreciate the extra thought and effort put into a custom gift like this.
Don't worry about trying to make these cookies yourself. It's so easy to find beautifully decorated cookies at this time of year. You will find them at your favourite bake shop, grocery store and even at coffee shops. I put coarse sugar in the bottom of the glass containers to create a snow like effect and also to keep the cookies in place so they don't move around and break.
Chalkboard tags were attached to the jar lids to use as gift tags. I wrote on the tags with a white chalk marker. The tag could be used as a Christmas ornament later on ... just decorate the other side with a cute saying or drawing and leave the string on for hanging.
We have a variety of different shapes of glass containers. I'd suggest that you buy the container first and select cookies to fit inside or have the cookies custom made in the size you want to fit.
Is Grandma making Christmas dinner (again) this year? Surprise her with one of these and she will be calling you "Martha" all day!
Planning a sweet table for the holidays? These cookie jars would make a sweet addition to your set up.
We purchased our custom cookies from Branded Bites. I had them made this summer so that I could feature this idea in our online magazine, Creative Living. The cookies were inspired by our Into the Woods holiday gift bags. I created actual size designs for each of the cookies that I wanted and emailed the art to Jamie at Branded Bites. The cookies were made on time, in the right size and the icing colours are (I'm sure that you will agree) amazing.
Please note that most of our glass containers can only be purchased in our stores. We do have a small assortment of glass containers that can be ordered online from Creative Bag Wedding if you are unable to visit one of our three stores in the GTA area.
