Congratulations to the A Personal Touch Blog’s “My Favorite Christmas Cookie” Recipe Contest winner, Jackie Stillion!
Jackie submitted a delicious recipe she used for her own Christmas Cookie Exchange with friends for Chocolate Gooey Cookies!
Time is running out to find the perfect Christmas gifts for everyone on your list. Right about now it’s crunch time and things might be getting pretty stressful if you have to deal with finding last minute gifts, wrapping, baking or cooking for the big day. That’s why this is a good time to stop, take a deep breath and go over your Forget-Me-Not Shopping List and Shopping Planner so you can make sure you have everything organized and you don’t miss anything.
But if you happened to see our Forget-Me-Not-Shopping list and realized you still need a little something for some of those people, don’t panic – we’ve got some great last minute gift ideas that don’t look last minute.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without Christmas Cookies! Baking and decorating Christmas cookies with friends and families is one of those fun holiday preparations that help get everyone into the Christmas spirit.
Nowadays more and more people are having Christmas Cookie Exchange parties where everyone brings a set amount of their best batch and everyone can sample, mix and match all the different types of cookies before taking home an assortment of their favorites. Here at PersonalizationMall.com’s gifting blog, A Personal Touch, we love this idea and we also love the idea of making a batch to give out as gifts, too! But we’re looking for a new fresh recipe to try out that is not only tasty, but creative, too!
Whether it’s a cookie exchange, “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party,” or a nice family get-together, holiday parties are underway!
One of the most important rules of party etiquette is to never arrive at a party empty handed. And instead of bringing a boring bottle of wine like everyone else, we thought we’d offer some personalized hostess gift ideas to help you impress your hosts and to show him and/or her that you truly appreciate being welcomed into their home.
We have an enormous selection of beautiful Home and Entertaining Gifts that make wonderful hostess gifts, but we thought we’d point out a few favorites in different price ranges to help you with your Christmas shopping (and budget)!
