Easy and inexpensive ways to wrap baked goods for Christmas gifts!
Who else loves giving Christmas treats? It’s one of our favorite things to do—the holiday baking and then giving them away to family, friends, neighbors, and so many others. It’s part of the season, and we look forward to it every year.
Depending on what you’re giving, wrapping can be a little tricky. I’m sharing with you some of my favorite ways to wrap bake goods that are super easy and inexpensive.
This first way is perfect for loaves of sweet breads…or any kind of bread. You can do it with any size loaf, which I love! I usually make smaller or mini loaves, but if you do full size loaves this will work just as well.

Start by wrapping the loaves really well with plastic wrap.
Cut strips of parchment paper and wrap them around the center of each loaf. I like the natural color of the unbleached kind–but you can definitely use white as well.
It’s so festive and beautiful!
You can do something similar when you have cookies or candy, but need an actual container. I really like paper loaf pans, and I fill them up with whatever holiday treat I’m giving away. (I got mine at Target in the holiday section last year–they usually have a different pattern every year, so it’s worth a look if you’re there.)
These are my favorite Snowball Cookies! It’s super easy–just fill the pan, cover in plastic wrap, then tie a cute Christmas ribbon around the middle. You an try and use the parchment if you want to–but it’s a lot trickier when the top isn’t flat.
Bakery boxes are go-to for me all year long, but Christmas is most definitely a favorite. They’re charming, adorable, and are the perfect container for any of your Christmas cookies and candy. I like the 6x6x3 size, but there are a bunch of options depending on what your needs are. I find mine on Amazon, usually for less than $1 each–even closer to 75 cents each. For an elevated gift box, it’s a great price.
It’s really the easiest way of all…line your box with parchment paper, stack your treats inside, close the box, and tie a big fat ribbon around the middle! Isn’t that lovely? They’re perfect for hostess gifts too.
