Ah, the holidays! A time to relax with friends and family—and also shop frantically for the perfect presents. But, relax. There’s no need to stress this holiday season because we’ve dug through every store and site to find the best gifts for everyone on your list.

Our top gift pick for the day will be posted on our Treats blog each morning through the end of the month. So check back daily for gift ideas galore!

Who doesn’t want something sweet for the holidays? When they’ve got all the gadgets and gizmos they could ever dream of, why not play it safe–and tasty–with cookies for your kids? And not just any cookies, Eleni’s Color Me! Christmas package: a gift tin filled with 23 iced sugar cookies and four edible ink pens. Cookies are shaped like snowmen, gingerbread men, Christmas trees, candy canes, reindeer, ornaments, and more. Kids will love doodling designs all over their treats before leaving them for Santa–or devouring their creations themselves.
