Homemade Christmas Cookie Gifts

This post is sponsored by Rubbermaid® on behalf of Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 
Ever since I can remember, I have been baking cookies for Christmas. It was a tradition that was started with my Grandmother that I now do with my daughter. Red Velvet cookies are my favorite and my red velvet cookie recipe is so easy. We have always made a ton of cookies and every year as I get older, I find more and more people to gift them to and occasions to bring them to. You can bring them to just about any holiday party or event as the perfect hostess gift. You can also gift them to just about anyone and they are always delighted.

My cookie gifting list now includes:

  • the UPS and Fedex delivery drivers 
  • the mail carrier 
  • my husband’s co-workers 
  • our neighbors 
  • my photographer 
  • and family and friends 
As mentioned, my favorite cookie to share has always been red velvet cookies. They’re a festive yet non traditional Christmas cookie and that’s what I love about them. Not to mention they taste delicious. Who doesn’t love red velvet? The best part is they are really easy to make.
I usually make several batches and package them in TakeAlongs® holiday containers. They come in various sizes in red, green, and gold. They’re inexpensive and festive so they’re the perfect way to gift holiday cookies and treats. You can purchase them at Walmart. I usually get the really big gold ones for parties and cookie swaps and the smaller ones in red, and green for gifts.

Easy Red Velvet Cookie Recipe

1 regular box (15.25 oz.) of red velvet cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

With a mixer, beat together the cake mix, oil and eggs until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. When ready, roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls and place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-13 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool before packaging in TakeAlongs. Tie with a ribbon for gifts. You can store them in TakeAlongs® for up to 5 days.
