One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is the giving. I love finding the perfect gift for someone I care about. I especially love making gifts for people and including everyone! This year, I'll be using these Rubbermaid TakeAlongs that I found at Walmart to give homemade Christmas cookies to the important people I encounter everyday that I want to thank in a special way. I want them to know they're important to me! For instance, my coworkers (who I spend more time with than just about anybody), my trolley driver (I have the same one every afternoon), and my mailman.
I could just plop some cookies on a paper plate and call it a day, but isn't a seal-able container so much better? It'll keep the cookies fresh anddddd they're way cuter. Plus, you won't have to worry about anything spilling or getting crumbs everywhere.
The add some extra Christmas cheer to the containers, I simply wrapped them around a few times with yarn, and added some tassels I threw together. Then, I attached a printable to make this gift even more festive. I will write a special little note on the back of the tag before I give them to the lucky recipient.
Oh, and how about I make this even easier for you to give the gift of Christmas cookies?? Here's a link to the Santa Approved printable!
Now I'm not just going to leave you hanging. Here's the recipe I used to make these deliciousssss Snickerdoodle Butter Cookies. I have many fond memories from my childhood of decorating butter cookies around Christmas time. It's still just as fun to do as an adult. Seriously, try it!
You know, these Rubermaid TakeAlongs would also be great to send guests home with leftovers after a holiday gathering. The possibilities are endless.
Also, for the Ibotta users out there, there's a special $1 Off Any 2 Rubbermaid TakeAlong Products rebate right now exclusive to Walmart shoppers.
Ok, now I want to know, what kinds of Christmas cookies are you making this year???
