In addition to the usual holiday treats — cookies, candy, granola — these containers can be used to give more perishable treats like cookie dough, or even homemade ice cream or soup as hostess gifts. Lightweight and unbreakable, they also seem like an especially good choice for sending shelf-stable treats in the mail.
And the decorating options are endless. Keep it simple with a printed label and ribbon or dress it up with pompoms, bakers twine and colorful paper tags. You can find the containers in bulk at restaurant supply stores for cheap, or in smaller quantities online.
