    Cover boxes with pretty scrap book paper or mod podge with pretty napkins etc. If you have dollar stores they have plastic boxes of assorted sizes that you can used to dress up.

    Empty Pringles cans make great cookie containers. The cookies are stacked and don't get smashed. You can wrap/decorate the can and put a bow on the lid.

      This sounds like such a cool idea, and a great way to avoid tragic cookie breakage! Do you have any suggestions or pictures for how to decorate the Pringle cans?

    I use shoeboxes, I wrap cardboard ones in Christmas wrap. I line the inside really well with tinfoil, so the cookies stay fresh. I have used the plastic ones from the dollar store as well. I take Christmas napkins and decoupage the napkins to the outside of the shoebox. These are nice because you can have a nice assortment of cookies. Hope this stir up your imagination.

    Brown paper lunch bags; fold over top, punch 2 holes, thread ribbon through. Put cookies in baggies and put inside. Check online for bulk order food boxes; I bought 100 for $25. Cupcakes: buy clear plastic cups at dollar store, put cupcake inside then frost/decorate. Wrap with cling wrap tied with ribbon on top. Our dollar store had tiny silver plastic spoons in the wedding section and we tied one on each cup with curling ribbon.
