How to Make Your Goodie Exchange Unique This Holiday Season

The holidays are full of delicious treats and sweets, and goodie exchanges are a fun way to celebrate with friends and family. All treats typically fall under a specific category, and guests swap treats and recipes during the gathering.

This holiday season, it’s time to add a little pizazz to your goodie exchange!

Cookie Exchange IdeasSet up a gift station

Take your treat exchange to the next level by sending everyone home with a nicely packaged gift comprised of all the donated treats.

Set up a station with wrapping paper, gift tags, take-home boxes, tissue paper, ribbon, and holiday stickers. Let each guest create and decorate their own box to fill with treats to take home. They can then keep the box themselves or give it to someone else as a gift.

Include festive surprises

Add a touch of holiday cheer to your annual goodie exchange by including some unexpected twists. Surprise guests with door prizes; simply gather up some holiday-themed cooking items to gift to a few guests at the end of your event. Set up a contest where everyone votes for their favorite treats based on taste, design, or adherence to the party theme. Give holiday gifts to the winners of each category.

Create a warm, festive holiday beverage to give partygoers something to go with their tasty goodies. Add an extra element of holiday spirit and go all out with decorating your home to a specific theme like White Christmas or the Grinch.

Go beyond cookies

Holiday cookies have their place in the realm of goodie exchanges. However, there are many other treats that can make your goodie exchange stand out this holiday season.

Try bringing a pie or baking cupcakes. Or go way outside the box and bring lollipops to share!

Bring decadent, tasty gourmet lollipops from CIMA Confections to your next goodie exchange this year. These lollipops are sure to be the talk of the party with their gorgeous finish and mouth-watering flavors!
