I like to share homemade baking with people - my physiotherapist, the neighbours, etc. And I like to give an assortment, but I really hate all the cookies mixed together on a plate. To me, they soon start to taste all the same. I guess that could be solved by eating them all quickly, before they have time to absorb the other flavours!
This year, I made little packages of cookies, just 4 or 5 in small glassine bags. I folded the ends in, then put a strip of printed paper around each one - here I used red gingham paper, but fabric would work, too. A simple label finished them off. My physiotherapist said, "oh, it looks Christmassy, but also like a picnic!"
