Works for Me Wednesday: Tea Boxes as Cookie Gifting Containers

This idea is not at all mine originally, but it is one that I love and intend to use again and again. When you're gifting cookies, instead of putting them on a wrapped plate (kind of precarious) or in a Ziploc gallon bag (makes them liable to crumble) - both things I used to do - you should consider the Post Punk Kitchen suggestion (described here and linked with PPK's permission) of putting them in an empty tea box. Frugal and cute as can be.

The Post Punk Kitchen blog has some great-looking cookie recipes, too, like Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows (*drool*), and Magical Coconut Cookie Bars.

For additional inspiration, you could also head over to Amazon for the 5-star-reviewed Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar: 100 Dairy-Free Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Treats, written by the Post Punk Kitchen's Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero (meet'em here).

Other suggestions for snazzing up your tea box of cookies:
  • Per Post Punk Kitchen, add some bags of tea that would complement the taste of the cookie
  • I like separating mine with squares of wax paper.
  • You could fancy up your boxes with wrapping paper or ribbons on the outside!
Gifting yummy cookies in tea boxes works for me!

This is hands-down the best idea I've heard all week!

This is actually a great idea. I'm going to try to remember this one the next time I empty a tea box! :)
