Hi everyone!
My husband will be turning 40 soon and i'd love to try my hand at making him a nice cookie bouquet to send to work as a surprise.

I'd love to hear ideas as to what shape cookies i should use and container. I'm looking more for a generic theme cuz my husband really doesn't have any hardcore interests or hobbies other than working on his laptop and cartoons/comics. I know, weird. Now you see why i'm stumped?

Well you named a few things he likes to do. You could do any of three you listed above. As for a container a manly mug that goes with the theme of the cookies. And if you cant find or don't want to spend money on a cutter if you printer out the shape you want your cookie use a knife and cut them that way. Hope this helps!

If you check my photos, there is a picture of a Birthday Cookie Bouquet that I did. It was a
cake, balloons, cupcakes, party hat and a gift. I used a cute box that I found at Dollar Tree.

Hope this helps.

How about a t-shirt with #1 Husband or Father? (if that applies) A computer cookie?

You could do some easy cartoon cookies (I guess that depends on what he likes).

Laptop/mouse cookies.

Generic b-day cookies, like Cindy mentions. You could do primary colors so that they're more 'manly'. lol

I really like the idea of having a cupcake or 'slice of cake' with a candle in the center of your bouquet. then I like the idea of #1 dad or the like.
maybe go with the cartoons, or the computer.
and some small stars as filler?

I did some small-ish stars that I outlined and sugared for 4th-of-July, they were really simple but I liked them a lot
- might keep it more manly too?

good luck!
