Do you guys like cookies as much as me? I certainly hope so! Today, I'm sharing about Land O'Lakes tagline ADD A LITTLE GOOD™. I love working with Land O'Lakes and they challenged me to add some kindness in the world.
To just do something that will make someone's day brighter, adding that little something that will in turn make your own day brighter.
My favorite things to give to friends and family, to bring over for potlucks and just to share are cookies. I mail cookies all the time to friends who live far away. To make it even easier, I usually have cookie dough in the freezer, it's so easy to make and prep cookie dough ahead of time, here's how to freeze cookie dough!
Following in the spirit, here are some reasons why I have sent cookies to friends:
- a friend and her daughter, after her daughter broke her leg
- a friend who just had a baby
- a friend who had just moved and I was missing her
- to thank a friend
- just because
You don't have to have a special occasion to share cookies with someone you love or even with a complete stranger.
You can deliver cookies to a friend in need or drop them by your doctor's/veterinarian's office or at your local fire station.
By giving a cookie, you can make a big difference. Make someone smile and make them feel good.
When shipping cookies, I love to wrap them individually in plastic wrap so they remain fresh longer during shipping.
I use a food safe treat or cookie box, like these ones. Fill it with stuffing and add the cookies.
Seal the boxes with twine. And write a little card telling them why you're sending them cookies.
My absolute favorite cookie to ship to friends this DoubleTree Cookie Recipe!
And surround the box with packing peanuts so they arrive safely.
Fill the top all the way!
Hand delivering cookies, I love these little bakery bags and these treat bags.
And kitchen twine…I have them in all sorts of colors!
And I just had to make little tags…I will be using these on my cookie treats I give and send out to friends from now on! Aren't they cute?
Just click on the graphic above to download them, print them and cut out to use for giving out your own cookie treats! (Please don't redistribute or link to the PDF directly. If you're sharing these, please link directly to this post. Thanks!)

My husband and I sent boxes of Christmas cookies to far away relatives this year and it was so exciting for everyone involved! We loved seeing photos of them pulling out our gingerbread men, Russian tea cakes and shortbread for their tea parties and they appreciated the homemade gift. Such a good idea and your packaging makes it even better!
We have the best neighbors in the world, so I want to do something special for them. Those tags will make gifting cookies even cuter!
OH those are super cute, I love the idea of giving a cookie. The name tags/gift tags are super cute too! Will have to try to make something like this!

This is such a cute idea. I love to bake goodies. I will have to give this a try.
What a really great idea! Who doesn’t love to get cookies? This would be a gift to brighten my day for sure!

How adorable! I wish someone would ship me cookies 🙂
Seattle Travel Blogger says
There are many good reasons to give out cookies!
I really like your name/gift tags.
Also, thank you for all the great recipes.

This is an amazing idea! I love giving away cookies but not in this very cute packaging! Love your printables!

I love getting AND giving cookies and candies as presents. We are in the process of making a bunch of candy and cookies for my in-laws.
Jen Rattie says
I love giving cookies for Christmas presents. Cookies are fun to make, fun to get, and of course, fun to eat!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I give cookies and candies as presents for Christmas all the time. There’s something so special about getting cookies and treats as gifts.
Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place says
One of my favorite things about the holidays is baking cookies and sharing them with friends and family! I generally don’t have a reason but “just because” when sending my friends cookies. I love these tags and cookies boxes to send them in!
Robin Masshole Mommy says
That is a wonderful idea. My neighbor has been down in the dumps because his wife has been sick lately, so I bet he’d love some cookies!
on my gosh, these tags are so cute! now I need to go make some cookies 😀 thank you!
Joanne @ Fifteen Spatulas says
Sending cookies always brightens people’s day, and I know how happy it makes me to get them too. Love how well you package them!
