The aroma of homemade cookies awakens other sense memories, from the warmth of a wood-burning stove to the sight of Grandma milking a cow above the mixing bowl. Hearken back to simpler times with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Cookie Bouquets
Cookie gift baskets cover a variety of themes. The Have a Ball on Your Birthday bouquet delivers annual cheer to sports-lovers, and the Cute as a Cupcake arrangement uses sugar cookies disguised as cupcakes to earn the respect of secret agents.
Cookies by Design
Gwen Willhite founded Cookies by Design in 1983, when an unsatisfying brainstorming session about gift ideas led her to ponder one question: why should flowers and sweets remain separate? Her solution was to design the cookie bouquet, where custom, hand-decorated cookies are displayed on sticks and arranged like flowers in gift baskets. Her invention quickly became a popular gift among locals, particularly those allergic to real blooms or too bashful to look at naked cookies.
Twenty-five years later, there are more than 200 Cookies by Design locations across the country. Each shop's team of bakers creates cookie baskets with a degree of care that matches Willhite's original vision, decorating and arranging sweet shapes for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion.
