“Cookie of the Month Club” makes a great holiday gift

I love Heather’s idea for simplifying holiday gift-giving:

This year, we are trying to find the perfect gift to give those who have everything.  It can’t be too expensive, too hard to travel with, and we want it to somehow include our 2 year old daughter.  I came up with the Jones family Cookie of the month club.  We are giving everyone a certificate saying we have enrolled them in our family’s Cookie of the Month Club.  Each month we will make a dozen cookies for our recipient & mail or deliver them.  This is a great way to include our daughter in the gift, and divvy up the cost of Christmas through the whole year.  I think this may be our new tradition…Cookies this year and next?  Books?  Our daughter’s art work?

    This is so funny since I decided to do this myself for my mother in law a couple of days ago. She loves coffee and tea and so we got her some good coffee, tea and some mugs. And I’m going to make monthly cookies and send them to her.

    We received a similar gift from my sister a couple years ago. It was great! This year the kids and I planning to put together “pizza kits” (prebaked homemade crusts, sauce, cheese and toppings) for some relatives who don’t cook much. The challenge is clearing out enough space in the freezer to store them till Christmas.

    It would be a great gift for a college student too.

    I’ve done cookies in a jar (used mason jar) and there are tons of recipes online for them. Like Heather, I wanted my kids to be able to help out. The measuring and pouring (with a paper cone in the jar) was perfect for a toddler.

    For my work gift exchange I am giving someone homemade frozen cookie dough logs, along with all the ingredients needed to decorate the cookies. He can slice and bake them anytime he wants fresh, homemade cookies. This is better than a tin of already baked cookies at Christmas time because they will not spoil before they can be eaten, and will not get lost in the avalance of other food gifts.
