Locating the appropriate gift to convey your seasonal well-wishes, congratulations, or sympathy can be a challenge. Flowers may appear too personal, or not personal enough, and a greeting card offers very little in the way of practical use or real enjoyment. When you need a gift that's unique but perfect for any occasion, consider giving a batch of delightful decorated cookies. Bright, colorfully decorated cookies will delight both children and adults, and are excellent for coworkers, friends, and family alike.
What makes decorated cookies the perfect gift is that they are suitable for practically any occasion. Naturally, cookies are great for birthdays, both as gifts and as party favors for your guests. Special cookie shapes help you commemorate special birthday milestones, or you can select cookies decorated to match various popular party themes. Number cookies are a perfect choice for wedding or other anniversary celebrations as well.
There are decorated cookies specifically created to celebrate the arrival of a new baby, or to make use of as lovely snacks at a baby shower. Personalized cookies with the name of the baby are a wonderful way to welcome the latest member of the family. Bridal showers are another fantastic opportunity to use decorated cookies, where they help to create a theme for the party. Cookies can even be used in the wedding reception itself: Using an edible ink marker, you can turn a wedding gown decorated cookie into a place card or a table number display.
Decorated cookies are wonderful for celebrating a large assortment of special events. The various sports themed cookies available would make a wonderful addition to the refreshment spread at your Super Bowl party. They can be used for celebrating a Little League victory (or console the players if the game goes the other way), give away as snacks at a bowling league tournament, or reward an admirable performance at a dance recital. At a pool party, beach themed party decorated cookies would be quite the hit!
The wonderful thing about cookies is that they bring comfort as much as celebration. Cheerful colors can brighten the recipient's day, and the delicious flavor will perk anyone up. You can send out cookies to a relative as a get-well gift, to cheer them up, or just so they know that you're thinking of them. If somebody near you is going away after a graduation, a gift of decorated cookies will both congratulate them and let them carry the sweetness of your well-wishes with them. Cookies are an effective compliment to a care package for young people away from home, at school, or members of the armed forces serving in different countries, offering a small taste of home for them to share with friends.
Any accomplishment can be celebrated with cookies, no matter how large or small. Whether you know a child who has received an award at school, or a doctoral candidate having successfully defended her his thesis, or a lawyer who's just won a milestone case, you may show your congratulations with adorable, artistic cookies. If your office at work achieves a great milestone, cookies will be a pleasant contribution to the office party refreshment table. Whatever the reason for your event, or even if there's no reason beyond just having a great time, a batch of tasty and bright cookies will add some flare to your celebrations!
