Holiday Cookie Gifts with Exclusive Cookies, including Hanukkah

by Regina 28. November 2012 03:34

Theoretically you can gift cookies any time of the year, but why is it so much better to do so during the holidays? Maybe it's the spirit of giving, or maybe it's the festive packaging - either way it's the perfect gift to give and the perfect gift to receive... Especially when the cookies are made from scratch and baked fresh every morning (sometimes multiple times a day!), like ours.

You have a couple different options with us, depending on how many cookies you'd like. If you just want to surprise your co-worker with a little bag of goodies on your way back from lunch, we can pack a couple cookies into a little baggie for you, tie a ribbon around it and call it in a day. Each store has several festive designs for the bags so make sure you ask to see them all!

If you're looking for more than just a couple of cookies, our red cookie boxes can fit about a dozen (depending on the cookies). With this option, you are completely free to choose what assortment and how many cookies you'd like -- there is just a small fee for the box and accompanying bow. This is a great gift for friends!

But maybe you're looking for something a little nicer. Something for your boss or supervisor? We have a large variety of cookie tins to choose from. Small or large, choose the size you think is right for you. We can fill them up with mini cookies, regular size cookies or decorated Gingerbread cookies. We have presets to make choosing easy, or make your own assortment if you'd like.

Any option you choose, the recepient will be receiving freshly baked cookies made with only natural ingredients - no artificial flavors or colors or preservatives. For a gift that is relatively easy for you (all you need to do is walk into our store!), your thoughtfulness and generosity will not go unnoticed.

We also bake a few cookies exclusively this time of year: Gingerbread, Mexican Wedding Cookies (also known as Russian Tea Cakes or Italian Butter Nuts) and Spritz Cookies (also known as Swedish Butter Cookies). Our Gingerbread are available in various shapes and sizes, from small boys and girls to Hanukkah shapes of dreidels and menorahs, to large gingerbread men. Because we use high-quality butter that is essential to the recipe, both our Mexican Wedding Cookies and Spritz Cookies have really great depth in their flavors. Personally they are my favorite cookies that we make and only available this time of year!

Like with all our products, I encourage you to call in to place an order in advance. We'll have cookies and supplies on hand but can't guarantee that we won't run out! And if you need multiple boxes or tins, please do call us so we can bake to order for you. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Until my next post, stay warm!

Holiday Gift Ideas

Holiday shopping can be a pain sometimes. The crowds, the lines and not to mention the headache over finding the perfect gift for your loved ones. Whoever that may be - maybe a parent or a sibling, a friend or a co-worker - skip the mall and head to one of our four convenient locations.

Let's start with co-workers or managers first. Our Holiday Cookie Tins or Cookie Baskets are perfect for the office. The best part is they're customizable to your needs. Choose to do a tin of six cookies, a basket of 100 (the perfect gift from one company to another) or any number of cookies in-between. Mini assorted, regular-size assorted, Gingerbread, our special Holiday-only cookies - the choice is all yours. You can give (and therefore spend!) as little or as much as you'd like. Any way you go, the cookies are baked freshly every day and packed with care.

A great gift for family members or neighbors alike - which many of our customers are already taking advantage of - is our Naturally Aged Fruitcakes. Our fruitcakes are made with raisins, currants, almonds, walnuts, figs, dates, prunes and a bit of fresh orange peel. They were baked in October so they could be naturally aged with brandy, which means we don't add any preservatives unlike other places. Even without additives these fruitcakes, because of the real alcohol, will last you throughout the year and into January. Because they were baked to be aged, we only have a limited supply left. Pick up a pre-wrapped box today at the stores or call ahead to place a hold.

And there's always our Gift Cards. Available at Palo Alto, Santa Clara and Fremont locations, purchase as many cards as you need for any amount (over $10, increments of $5) that is available to redeem at any of those three locations with no expiry dates. This gift is perfect for those who frequent our locations for breakfast or lunch, or maybe you know they love our cakes but you don't know which one. The Gift Card is fast, easy and yet still thoughtful.

Stay tuned for our next post... maybe you don't need gift ideas but you've been asked to bring dessert to dinner. I'll be making some recommendations and giving details about the cakes we exclusively make during this holiday season. Until then, keep warm!
