Christmas cookies are everyone’s favorite holiday treat! But making all those different varieties can be exhausting. Hosting a Christmas cookie exchange is a fun way to celebrate the season and get a great variety of treats.
For the past 5 or so years my sister and I have hosted a Christmas cookie exchange. It is definitely one of the highlights of my holiday party season. A Christmas cookie exchange is a great way to get a variety of cookies without all the work! I’m really excited to be able to offer you this adorable set of printables to help you host your own Christmas Cookie Exchange!
Host A Christmas Cookie Exchange Party
Invitations: Set the tone of your party with these adorable invitations. We always do our party on a weeknight and we send out invitations 3-4 weeks ahead of time. This way everyone has time to plan. We ask for firm RSVP’s one week prior to the party so we can let everyone know how many cookies to make. We generally make 1/2 dozen cookies for every person attending.
Recipe Cards: One of the best things about a cookie exchange is getting new recipes. Have your guests bring the recipe they made to the party. Then set out these adorable recipe cards and let everyone copy down their favorite recipes.
Made by Tags: It’s fun to know who made what! Provide your guests with these tags ahead of time to attach to their goodies so everyone knows what they are getting and who made it.
Gift tags: We always provide little gifts for our guests. Sometimes we have people vote on cutest packaging or we play games or we just do a random drawing. Everyone loves to get a nice prize to take home and these tags match your theme!
Garland: Print out this garland string around your home for decoration! It’d be super cute strung around the table piled high with Christmas cookies
