The Sweetest Sweet Treat: Gourmet Cookies

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

What is it that makes gourmet cookies so unique? Is it the divinely hand-decorated icings? Is it the wholesome ingredients that recreate that familiar homemade experiencing? Or is it the creative new shapes and designs that make them such a pleasing addition?

Whatever it is, the magic is undeniable. A gift of gourmet treats makes a pleasant part of any party, celebration or special event.

Gourmet Cookies Make for a memorable Gift

Everybody loves cookies, no matter what the occasion. When you are invited to a celebration or open house, bring a box of treats, personalized with a special message for the hostess. Celebrating a house warming? Why not go with a gingerbread house created from gourmet edibles to add warmth and whimsy to the table?

Has someone you know had another baby? Bring along a box in lovely shapes like tiny feet, rubber duckies or cute diapers. Have them personalized with the new baby's name for an extra special touch. The new parents will enjoy the treats, and appreciate having some fun desserts on hand for those drop-in visitors.

Add Gourmet Cookies to Any Occasion

While they make terrific gifts, gourmet cookies are a terrific solution to your very own event planning needs. At your upcoming birthday party, order a box of these wonderful treats in the place of a cake. They are easier to serve, and the left-overs (if there are any!) may be conveniently wrapped up and given to guests as they leave.

Any occasion works great with wonderful treats, and you can discover them in whimsical and fun shapes for almost any event: anniversaries, birthdays, baptisms, sports banquets and weddings.

Certainly, happy occasions are perfect for these treats, but have you considered a box of gourmet cookies as a condolence gift? When a home loses a loved one, there is often a constant flow of guests and visitors to the home, both before and after any planned services. How polite for the family to have a beautiful box of hand ornamented roses or other flowers, with a sincere message of empathy. Not only will they simply be a appreciated sentiment, they'll go a long way toward feeding the house guests in a simple and elegant approach.

The Thank You Gift

Not many things say "thank you" quite like a personalized gift. When a person goes out of their way for you, treat them to a box of gourmet cookies that says it for you. Visiting relatives for the holidays? Say thanks with a pretty hostess gift of edible treats, decorated in attractive silver, blue and lavender to match the holiday theme.

There are so many times when these fancy treats can be the ideal solution. When ordering yours, be sure that they are made shortly prior to delivery, and baked in the U.S. This means your treats should reach your destination fresh and delicious, instead of boxed for months. Also, look for a business that offers a money back guarantee if something should go wrong with the order. Cookies may crumble...but yours shouldn't!
