Christmas Cookie Can

Nothing compares to homemade cookies.  They make a great gift at Christmas, too.  They show that you took time to make them for a special person.  They are a great gift for neighbors and friends.  Just stick them on a plate or in a basket.


Wait, that is kind of old and tired, isn’t it?  Want a new way to deliver those cookies?  Carefully clean and dry a Pringles can.  Make sure you clean it first, no one wants chocolate chip/sour cream and onion cookies.  Yuck!  Wrap the can in some cute paper.  You can put a bow on the lid, or tape a card.  Now just stack the cookies in the can.  The kids would love to help out with this part.

My favorite way is to wrap it up like a big piece of candy!  I love presents that look like this.  :-)

008 Now you can deliver to anyone.  This is great for the mail carrier because it fits right in your mailbox.  This also makes cookies a great gift for any person that services your house, like the garbage truck driver or UPS man, etc.  They can just grab it and go.  The cookies can stay in their truck without sliding off a plate and getting crushed.  BIG PLUS – the can fits in a cup holder, too!  So now start your frugal gifting with cookies for everyone!   Try it.

  1. Wow, how simple but yet so adorable! It does look great wrapped up, like a big piece of candy. Thanks for the photos, helps visual learners like me!

  2. Super cute idea!

    I would be nervous I wouldn't get the chip smell out of the can.

  3. What a great idea! I see a lot of Pringles in my future. Oh so tasty, but not so good for my waistline (especially when combined with the cookie dough I eat while making cookies!) Thanks for the great idea!

  4. I used that as a way to deliver birthday cookies to my students one year - using birthday wrapping instead of Christmas. We ate a lot of Pringles! But I didn't have to worry about the cookies getting smashed before they got home.

  5. love this idea and think that I will incorporate it as well. Now all I have to do is find the cans

  6. Aubrey shared this over on The Mother Huddle...Love it! I just happen to have some little pringle cans I save from my hubbies lunch knowing there would be a use for them someday!

  7. TOOOOO CUUUUUTE!!!! I love it! I am making one this weekend!

  8. Destri, I saw this on The Mother Huddle before I saw this comment! I was so excited to it. I love your site and subscribe to it so I can inspired. :-) Thanks for the link!

    When we eat chips, we eat only Pringles, because they are usually all intact and the cans are great for crafts!

  9. What a great tip! Thanks for sharing this!
