Winner of the Giveaway & More Packaging Ideas

Packaging, Christmas-peppermint sprinkles

Thank you to all of you for your wonderful comments on packaging gifts and thoughts of the Christmas season!

The winner of the packaging giveaway is Betsy from A Plateful of Happiness.

In Betsy’s recent blog post she made, Lamb and Dried Apricot with Tagine from Dorie Greenspan’s cookbook, Around My French Table.  Afterward, she gave her opinion about the recipe along with  Howard’s thoughts after he tasted it.  click here to visit Betsy’s website.

A wonderful addition to a gift package is a little bag filled with crushed candy canes {above pic}.  Attach a gift tag with a note  on how to use it sprinkled on hot cocoa, on a latte, over ice cream, or with cookies.

Here are a few more simple packaging ideas that I’ve done over the years…..


Packaging, chocolate chip cookies & coffee

Coffee to go and some cookies too!

Packaging, chocolate chip cookies & coffee

This was a gift idea I put together last year for teachers, but it could be for anyone who loves coffee and cookies {recipe here}.  Instead of coffee you could replace it with tea.  Starbucks instant coffee packets, a Starbucks gift card, and sugar packets were enclosed in the paper cup.  The two containers were stacked together inside  a clear cello bag and tied with a ribbon. Decorative tape was used to add a little color to the gift tag.


Packaging food and homemade goodies

A box of goodies to eat and enjoy during the Christmas Season!

Packaging cookies-glassine bags

Individual servings of chocolate chip cookies packaged in glassine bags and enclosed with decorative tape.


Packaging cinnamon rolls

Homemade cinnamon rolls in a simple brown box and tied with twine.


Packaging marshmallows

Giving these big fluffy homemade marshmallows with cocoa mix will put a smile on someone’s face.


Packaging Christmas treats

This picture {above} was taken late into the night last year at Christmas time.  Bill and I packaged over 100 treat bags filled with chocolate crinkle cookies, chocolate chip cookies, homemade marshmallows, and caramel popcorn.  Bold red “Merry Christmas” gift tags were printed with information of what was included inside the bags.


Packaging Christmas treats

We stacked the individual packages together in a clear cello bag and tied with a bright red ribbon.


Packaging Cranberry Relish

One last packaging idea and it’s a favorite of mine.  A bowl with a jar of homemade cranberry relish with pear and orange was from a blog post last year, here.  This idea could be changed to include such things as a jar of jam, cookies, sweets, and other gifts.

    Clear bags is one of my favorite ways to package presents any time during the year. I love all your ideas for what to give as gifts inside the bags.
