We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

There’s nothing I love more than sweet, homemade treats during the holidays. (Cough, cough — are you listening, friends?) The best way to play it safe when you aren’t sure what to get your mysterious friend or a group of 30 coworkers is definitely a batch of homemade cookies in pro-styled packaging. You can certainly go wrong with a tie but never with gooey chocolate crinkle cookies or maple nut toffee.
