Bake, Gather your friends
and Swap Cookies
Pick a date.
Early December is the best time for most people—after Thanksgiving and before the really busy holiday season begins. Choose a weekend afternoon or weekday early evening when everyone can spend about two hours chatting and nibbling.
Send out invitations.
Use our charming Invitations that you can personalize and print. Mail them out a month before your cookie exchange to give your guests plenty of time to schedule the event and do their baking.
Printable invitations are available atwww.chsugar.com/cookieswap
Keep your guest list to a manageable number—large enough to enjoy an interesting variety of cookies, but not so large that you and your guests feel overwhelmed. Between eight and twelve people is about right.
A Cookie Swap can typically involve close friends or family, but it’s also a great way to gather with others that you might not get to see during the busy holiday season. It’s also a nice alternative for exchanging gifts! Theme plans include The Office Cookie Swap, A “Block Party” Cookie Swap, Class Parents, Your Book Club, Knitting or Theater Group, A Kids Cookie Exchange and Just Mothers & Daughters.

Step up the fun at your Cookie Swap with contests and prizes for things like:
You may want to select a theme for the Cookie Swap that guides guests on how to decorate or display their cookies: Plans include Winter Wonderland Cookie Swap, Country Christmas Cookie Swap, O Holy Night and Babes in Toyland. Visit www.chsugar.com/cookieswap
