Inspired by some pretty pink cookies we decided it would make a nice gift for our cousins to give them some giraffe cookies.
Of course, it worked beautifully. The orange flavoured M&M's gave a delicious flavour to these cookies which Ess has dubbed Giraffe Cookies.
They made a lovely gift with the recipients exclaiming, "Wow, what a great idea!" They fit my bill of what constitutes a great gift - they encourage creativity and productivity in children, it is not plastic or licensed or made on the production line. It is unique and hopefully a memorable gift for our cousins.
I am sure I'll be using this idea again for gifts throughout the year. Just need to find enough jars exactly the right size.
