Has anyone shipped individually wrapped cookies? I have done it several times but am wondering the best way to ship them.

I usually place each wrapped cookie in a box and separate them with paper shreds and tissue paper.

Any other tips for shipping would be greatly appreciated!!!

Scroll to the bottom of the home page on cc. They have articles on How to's and cookie shipping is included.

Thanks Sandy, but that article is for cookie bouquets. I ship cookies individually with no bouquet or stick attached.

Maybe I can take the same approach though.

Does anyone else have a story to share on how they ship there individual cookies or cookies by the dozen?

I bubble wrap each cookie individually then put them in the box in a single layer. I put a layer of cardboard down on top of the cookies and then follow that with another layer of cookies. I have found this works well, especially when you have more than one shape of cookie.

Good luck! Hope everything arrives perfectly!
I get sick to my stomach when I ship cookies!!

I do the same as mangia...I find a layer of cardboard in between layers really helps to stabilize the cookies, but then I take the box with the cookies and put it in another with packing peanuts. That extra layer helps to protect them.

Great, thanks for the tips!

One last question...what size box or boxes do you use for 2 dzn cookies? I ordered some online, can't remember the size, but when I use them I can only put 1 dzn in 1 box. So I end up shipping 3 small boxes in 1 huge box.

I usually use a shirt box or shoe box depending on the size of the cookies, I layer them singly with some bubble wrap between layers and then top the box and tape it shut making sure the cookies are good and snug with bubble wrap on all sides of box including top. Then I put that box inside a larger box with packing peanuts all around it and again, test by shaking the box you shouldn't feel or hear the inner box banging into the sides of the box, it should all be fairly snug so it doesn't jossle around....that's the most important thing.. I have never had even ONE cookie break mailing them this way!
