Mailing Food Gifts

Food gifts are a tasty treat for loved ones far away from home. Consider foods that are healthy and easy to make.

  • Non-perishable foods are best. You don’t want to give the gift of foodborne illness!
  • Choose firm and chewy cookies. Place them back-to-back and wrap with plastic wrap.
  • Bar cookies ship well, but avoid recipes with cream cheese or other high amounts of dairy ingredients.
  • Pack in a small box or tin. Place inside another box with packing material.

To ship internationally, check the website for shipping deadlines.
