Easy Last Minute Gift Idea

I love the holidays for lots of reasons. You get lots of fun goodies. You get to give lots of fun goodies. It's all about the goodies, apparently, for me.

This year I found these cute little "paint cans" at the $1 spot in Target and I thought they would make the perfect cookie package.

And then I found this awesome gingerbread recipe on MADE and knew these were the cookies I had to make!

I love a soft cookie and 'tis the season for gingerbread!

Together they make a simple and cute little gift. I used these for my neighbors and some close friends. 

Cut squares of waxed paper to keep the cookies from sticking and ta-da! Goody heaven. 

 Add some Christmas candy and festive ribbons and we are good to go.

 These are awesome because the handle makes it easy for little hands to carry or to leave on a doorknob if someone isn't home.

You could also fill these with any sort of fun treats (we used chocolate dipped Oreo's as well), or with anything squishy like Christmas socks, ornaments, hair bows, etc. I hope you have a great Christmas filled with yummy goodies. Enjoy!
