Cookie bouquets are probably among the safest gifts you can give anyone. Most people enjoy eating them, and with your ability to transform the cookies into almost any shape and size, they are greatly appreciated by everyone. There are several such bouquets available out there, though you too can attempt to make these by yourself. Of course, it is going to take a while, but it is an art that can definitely be mastered. While general bouquets are easily available, it is those that are theme based that truly make for great, somewhat personalized gifts. Shaping cookies and decorating them based on the gift receiver's choice and liking is definitely more personal than just picking up a simple cookie bouquet. So ready for some cookie bouquet ideas?
Sporty Cookie Bouquet
For someone who is a sports fan, a sporty cookie bouquet is a great idea. Get cookies in the shape and with the icing of tennis balls, rugby balls, soccer balls, or basketballs. If possible, try to recreate the mascot of her/his favorite team. On the other hand, your cookie bouquet could be centered on the favorite player of the receiver of the gift, with her/his jersey, sports equipment, the jersey number, and some cookies with her/his initials. Bring it all together and you have a great bouquet to give off as a gift.
Floral Cookie Bouquet
A floral cookie bouquet is the safest gift you can give anyone, irrespective of the occasion. Moreover, unique flower shapes can be created with their leaves and the like so that you can have a beautiful cookie bouquet. Experiment with colors, where you can have a rainbow of flowers, or you could just have flowers in shades of one hue. These delightful little treats will not only be immediately devoured but also remembered for a long time to come.
Fashionable Cookie Bouquet
For the fashion diva, what could be a better gift than a cookie bouquet that has everything she's always on the lookout for? A bag, a pair of shoes, a pair of sunglasses, a shirt, a pair of jeans, or any other things that you think personify the diva you are giving this bouquet to, can make it in this gorgeous arrangement. Use rich colors that reflect her personality, and there is no way you can go wrong. So what if you couldn't buy her the originals? It's the thought that counts!
Starry Cookie Bouquet
So someone matters to you a lot, and is probably your mentor in life. What better than a bouquet with star shaped cookies, that clearly symbolize "You're a Star!" Everything need not be said, and with a gesture like this, she/he will know exactly how much you appreciate the guidance she/he offers to you. This is also a great gift from a child to her/his mom, dad, sibling, or grandparent; or from a husband to his wife and vice versa.
Bookworm's Cookie Bouquet
A unique idea that involves very little work, this cookie bouquet will thrill the true bookworm. Simply take cookies of various shapes and spell out book names or favorite author names on them. Imagine eating 'Emma' or 'Jane Austen'! Another idea that is in keeping with this one is to have cookie bouquets based on the theme of the receiver's favorite book. For instance, if it were Harry Potter, you could have wands, castles, robes, brooms, the golden snitch, and several other things that are symbolic of it as cookies. Yes making such a cookie will take a lot of effort, but it is definitely not impossible. The same concept could be utilized for the spelling bee, where you could spell out difficult, funny, or unusual words that will send the spelling bee in a tizzy!
Give away these wonderful gifts and watch the glint of happiness in your loved ones' eyes. Make it personal, make it out of this world, and your cookie bouquets will be enjoyed with double the happiness!
