I am currently baking cookies for my FI’s parents to give to them in two days as a combo Christmas / “thanks for giving us an engagement party” gift. I am putting them in a “petite candy stand” (looks like a small glass cake stand with a dome lid) from Williams Sonoma. They are jumbo sugar cookies with gold glitter (his mom loves glitter). I thought this was something from the heart, but I’m starting to think its lame. Thoughts?

I think that sounds like a really heartfelt gift! Obviously you don’t need to splurge outrageously, but the nice candy stand is something they can use again. Great idea!

Sounds like a great idea! The platter sounds like it can be used again too, which is always nice.

If the cookies come out yummy and pretty, it’s a great gift. (I only mention this because my own cookies usually fail at looking like anything except misshapen blobs 🙂

I think it sounds really neat. They get something homemade by you, something useful and you remembered a personal detail to make it really special. I like it.

Thanks guys! Its a lot of work to make the cookies pretty, but I think it is going to turn out nice! I just feel weird because I know they are going to give me an extravagant gift, but I know that they understand that I am broke!

I make cookies all the time as gifts and I love the reaction from people when they get it… its all about presentation and the card to go with it. I know by experience people like better a gift that comes from inside that one bought on the store.

Not lame at all. Most everyone loves cookies of some sort. Also, typically the gifts that mean the most to alot of people are the simple homemade type that come from the heart, especially if edibles are involved.
