All wonderful, festive ideas. I’m so glad they aren’t plastic too. You know, I read that there is an actual store called Plastic Container City? : ( I love the natural (and green) packaging for baked goods soooo much more.

Hi Michelle! Thanks for the note. Ya, I’m always happy when I can find packaging that is either reusable or green. After looking into the Panibois wooden baking boxes, I found they’re fully biodegradable. it’s nice to know.

Thanks for the nod to the bakers twine!

Oh Amber, I’m failing miserably on the holiday check list. I printed it out and have not done one thing! I’ve been inspired by your creative packaging round up. Now I have just got to get on the ball!

I love it! It was your post on the macarons you made for the bake sale that had me dive into macaron making. The packaging was perfect! Now I’m knee deep in macarons I’m making and freezing for the Holidays!

If it’s okay with you, I’d like to reference your post and provide a link to your blog from mine? Let me know if that’s a problem. You’ve got such a great blog- I’d bet happy to get the word out to my bloggy friends about it.


AmberLee October 20, 2009 at 8:21 pm

Hi Cynthia,
I’m so happy the macaron recipe worked for you! Don’t you love that they freeze well? I’d love a link! Thanks for stopping in to say hello!

love it all — thanks for including my yum boxes! i’ve been looking for those little wood baking baskets forever … any ideas for US sources?


AmberLee October 20, 2009 at 8:29 pm

Hi Suann,
I’m glad you asked so I could do a little more research. The boxes are by Panibois and it looks like (click here) may be the only U.S. vendor where you can buy a batch smaller than 400. It does look like you can get a variety pack to try all 12 different sizes here.


AmberLee October 20, 2009 at 8:44 pm

Hi Suann, one more source I just spotted, where you can buy them in packs of 6: They are so pretty, aren’t they? and have so much potential.

Excellent selection (and suggestions!) I’m always wondering how to package the cookies I give out at the holidays and I hate it if they look the same every year (although the recipes are usually the same….) :-)


Tania October 20, 2009 at 7:52 pm

this is all such great eye candy! I have to say that thanks to your blog I have definite ideas about my Christmas packaging….but still working on what will go IN my gifts…

I love those mini loaf pans. I just might have to get me some —- not a huge fan of plastic for baked goods.

Most of my holiday packaging this year will be kraft paper prettied with ribbons, twine, bakers twine and other colorful trim. I’ve done this in years past and it is my fave.
